[prMac.com] Neuss, Germany - Individual developer Alexander Plahr has announced Calculate Pi Academic 2.1, for all iOS devices. The advent of digital computers in the 20th century led to an increased rate of new Pi calculation records.

Additionally, thousands of decimal places were obtained in the following decades to follow.
