[prMac.com] Ottawa, Canada - Halcyon Touch Software today is pleased to announce Halcyon Calc Lite for the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad. Halcyon Calc Lite is a free version of the highly regarded Halcyon Calc and includes the vast majority of functionality found in this feature laden scientific calculator app.
Students, scientists, engineers and others need to manipulate complicated equations. They need to evaluate these expressions for different input values quickly, even if those input values are real, complex or integer numbers. The ability to find roots, maxima and minima of these expressions is required. Expressions need to be viewed in an X/Y coordinate space to find regions of interest. Halcyon Calc Lite is able to do all of these things.
Although inspired by the look and feel of classic calculators, Halcyon Calc Lite takes advantage of the touch interface on iOS devices. The stack display can be browsed by directly scrolling the display. Cut, copy and paste is supported. X/Y plots are directly manipulated through pinch to zoom and panning gestures that users of the platform are already accustomed to. Rotating the device into landscape mode will hide the calculator's buttons and the plot is shown full screen providing even more detail.
With over 190 built-in operations, Halcyon Calc Lite provides the most commonly used functions in a scientific calculator. If the operation you require is not among those included, Halcyon Calc, our paid version includes a simple programming language. Halcyon Calc can easily be extended to add support for new operators and these custom operations can themselves be used in expressions which can be plotted or evaluated like any other expression.
