We all make mistakes. If it is in a series of long entries of mathematical calculations, it is simply a big pain in the neck. Wouldn’t it be great if we can simply correct the one wrong entry and all our calculations become correct?
That is why Digits is great; a superb calculator app that records all your entries in what it calls a tape and allow you to edit/correct any number of wrong entries. You do not need to redo the entire series of calculations- just correct the mistake(s) in your entries and the entire calculation stands corrected. Magical!
This single feature makes it a clear winner but there are many other useful features such as:
- Available for both iPad and iPhone
- Simple, intuitive interface
- Easy to use as any calculator with the added flexibility of a spread sheet
- Easy backup and file sharing using iTunes
- AirPrint support
- Customizable with a wide range of currency modes, background colors, sounds, etc.
- You can label any item in your tape- the transcript or strip of your calculations
- Autosave holds your tape and all your calculations for your next session
- Edit, insert, copy and many other options are available in a tape
- You can manage multiple tapes (for multiple calculations) using tape browser
- You can email your tape along with your labels
