Remember the Big Bang Theory episode where the guys wanted to make an app to solve complex equations they scribbled on a whiteboard? Okay, most of us probably wouldn’t need an app that advanced, but what about one that let’s you write simple equations on your iPad or iPhone screen and have those solved? Thought so.

Oh, and the app is free.

Just playing with it for a couple minutes…it’s easy and brilliant. Sure, you have to be careful how you write your figures, but…wow. Here is the App Store description with the capabilities (I love the scratch out for mistakes):

    is this for jailbroken iDevices only?

    • Drusenija

      No, it’s an App Store app.

      Shame it doesn’t do calculus though, that’s really what a lot of people need something like this for!

      • Tris Hussey

        That would rock.

  • AT&T Rapes Me

  • Glenn Hunt

    By far one of the coolest apps yet!

    This is an excellent app I’ve been using for a week now. I love the ability to add the ? Into an equation and have it calculate an unknown value.

      Yeah.,..just amazing. A little hard on the iphone, but just awesome.
