[prMac.com] Geneva, Switzerland - DifferentApps has released FastCalc 1.1 for iPhone and iPod touch. FastCalc is developed to overcome some of the difficulties that small calculators typically pose, especially key size. Whereas a device with the dimensions of an iPhone has very small keys, FastCalc's screen has only twelve large keys which are very easy to see and use. This feature eliminates the frustration of hitting a wrong key.
Using the app is a quick, simple matter of tapping or swiping the appropriate key, thanks to the touchscreen controls. FastCalc's user interface turns symbols on or off to protect users from syntax errors. FastCalc is not only efficient, it's accurate too. All entered formulas respect the operations priority rule, and users can use parenthesis to group their operations for accurate formulations. Expressions are displayed constantly, so it's easy for a user to double check their equation.
This new application provides three different memory stores, which is appreciated by users who perform repetitive calculations. Having a copy and paste feature is a big plus for FastCalc. Formulas and results can be copied to the pasteboard and moved into another application.
Another function offered by FastCalc is the Last Answers (ANS) recall. The result of a calculation is stored when the screen is cleared. If a user has forgotten to jot the number down, they just need to check the app rather than having to do a recalculation. The ANS is updated every time the user deletes a screen.
