RealCalc, a realistic-looking Android scientific calculator

By Vasudev Ram

RealCalc is a scientific calculator app for Android.

[Image above is of RealCalc Plus.]

I came across it via a comment in this HN thread:

Smallest RPN Calculators (swissmicros.com)

Then I installed it on my Android phone and tried it out a bit: things like basic arithmetic, y to the power of x, log, ln, hex mode calculations, etc. It looks good and worked as expected. One good feature is different display modes, one of looks like a real electronic calculator - the whole calculator, not just its number display. I guess that is the reason for the name of the app :)

I'll use RealCalc for a while and then may write another post about it, if there is anything else interesting to say.

You can download RealCalc here:


They also have a paid version with more features, RealCalc Plus, which you can download from the same link. In fact, the paid one is the app linked to from that page; it takers you to the Google Play Store page for RealCalc Plus. Then by looking at the similar apps section on that page, you can get to RealCalc.
