It is the best
Glitchy and manipulative 1/5
Read the title. And get rid of the freezy and sneaky adds. Thanks that’s all I have to say.
Forwarded to my enemies 1/5
I used this app for years. It was highly functional. The current version is way too intrusive, taking over entire screen to push developers agenda. With soooo manny better options, it was deleted.
This calculator is deeply flawed. When using percentages in calculations it will return the wrong result. I have tested it against every other calculator I have.
WORST UPDATE EVER 1/5
By Jo Jo355
I, like many who paid for ad-free, have used and loved this calculator (scientific, especially) for years. However, like others here have mentioned, since the last update the scientific functions are no longer even viewable and the "base" calculator is BEYOND distorted. Perhaps you forgot to test on all but the very latest version of iOS? At any rate, it is utter garbage on iPad Pro (LANDSCAPE) running the last version of iOS 12 prior to 13 (many of us are NOT keen to jump on iOS 13 as we've heard it has many, many issues). I have NO other apps, paid or not, with this type of issue. FIX, AND TEST YOUR UPDATES IN THE FUTURE! Adding new features at the expense of stability is not smart.
Dreadful widget and app now 1/5
I am deleting this app now having been unable to do a simple calculation in either the widget or the app for 5 minutes.
The widget seems to have a history that you can't see, so my results made no sense, and I could see no way to clear what I could not see.
Then the app interrupted my entry to advertise something. When I returned it complained about divining by zero and failed when I tried to start over.
All I was trying to do is to convert Fahrenheit to centigrade. I wonder if it also knows that 1+2+3=24?
Calculator Pro 1/5
Highly disappointed to pay for the ad free version and have multiple ads immediately become in our face! Closing the app and restarting did not help. I have used this app happily for years and am really unhappy with what this version has become.
Just keep adding 1/5
Do you want a calculator that never completes a function? What’s 12 x 347? Get your answer? What’s 132% of 48? Did you remember to swipe left on the clear button like a real calculator? If not, this app just adds the next numbers you wish to calculate to the previous ones, which is annoying and terrible. The calculator on a windows computer is more intuitive. Deleted from iPad.
Developer response to my review indicates they have never used a calculator before. Do not trust. 2+3 might equal 21😔. It’s all there in my original review: make a calculator that behaves like a real calculator or get off the App Store. Hey hey: this calculator and the App Store: two things that are wastes of time!
Do NOT waste your money 1/5
By T Apple 123
I can’t believe I PAID for a calculator Ap (to remove ads),
and the screen is always distorted.
Deleted and reinstalled, but still distorted.
Last update made it unusable for me 3/5
I have not been able to use the app since the “fantastic converter feature” was introduced a couple months ago. The “I Understand” button does not work for me, so I can’t get past the introductory screen. (My IPad Pro is less than a year old, and system software is up to date.) hopefully this will be resolved soon - it was a 5-star app for me prior to this glitch.
Ads in a paid app? 1/5
This is seriously messed up to pay for something and have to endure the interruptions of ads. I will remember the name of this developer and never use anything they produce from now on.
By Bruce LeCross
Literally can’t type more than a few digits before a pop up ad hijacks my screen. This app was not designed to do math.
Rip off 1/5
I paid $2.99 to remove ads and still get adds, highly annoying!!!!!
Sez .99 cents but then it sez to wait til it downloads for in app purchase for $2.99? Nah, don’t think so. Talk about calculating!!! No wonder it’s titled “Pro”. Best calculator I’ve found is on my iddyshiddy Kindle Fire tablet. It’s actually hard to believe the much vaunted I-stuff doesn’t have a dedicated calc app (and a notification light for that matter) so I’ll just use my Kindle Fire and not bother with this tripe.
You took away everything that used 1/5
You took away everything that made this app great all the different conversions I used them and now I’m going to have to look for another stupid app unless you add them back.
I went to add this to my new iPad 11 pro and everything I loved about it was gone
So unless you add all the different conversations back I’m going to do a way with this app because my phone has a calculator
Why in the world would you downgrade your calculator app I used to use it when I was measuring weight for food and Fahrenheit to Celsius and different measurements you really disappointed me 😡
By Gene Denver
This was my go-to basic calculator app. The ads at the bottom were discrete and tolerable but now they have instituted obnoxious takeover, full screen popup ads. Delete!
What’s wrong 5/5
A very good app with a Great support from the company. I had a problem after an update and they helped to get it fixed. Can’t go wrong. I highly recommend this app because it’s so easy to use. Even us old folk with no tech skills can use this and if we have problems, contact support. They are there to help.....
Quit Working 1/5
Have had this for a long time, worked fine, and then it quit working. Deleted and reinstalled, worked for a short time, and then quit again. Paid for it a second time and it still doesn’t work. Please refund my money. Thank you.
Intrusive Ads Take Over Whole Screen 1/5
Full screen adds take over entire iPad at random, with a minimum ad view time for videos, game apps etc. Annoying and makes basic use/ workflow near impossible. I will now delete the app, many better options out there.
Note to developer:
It is the INTRUSIVE MANNER the ads are presented that is the issue.
Ftttttt was a great night out and then you got a good night out
Crap App 1/5
By Got stuck up
Bought this app never worked from day one. App freezes and doesn’t work deleted and re installed several times. This is the paid version it I could give it less than zero I would
why why i purchased this app so i wouldn’t get advertisements why bull cockie just saying please advise and fix thank you pro user
The Ads have rendered this useless 2/5
This used to be a good app, however the addition of random full screen ads in addition to a permanent banner on the bottom has made this app useless. More than once I have lost work I was doing when the app just flipped into a full screen ad for some random app and the only way to exit is a tiny x that is hidden in the background in the top right.
Additionally, the banner at the bottom has been sped up so that is distracting and an irritant, As in it is a trigger for headaches if I use the app to long.
By Jeremy battersby
The calculator is very simple to use
No longer even useable 1/5
By Goldenrod farm
This app has been on my iPad for a long time, now however it is totally unusable. Any time you pause to check a number it rolls into a full page video add, then goes back to a locked screen that only displays the basic calculator, a small part of the whole, this forces me to go out of the app and manually force the app to close. Once you go back into the app, you have about 5 seconds to start putting in numbers or the whole process will repeat. What ever happened to banners? what good is a calculator that is always displaying a full screen add when you need to quick calculate some numbers?
The other con about this app is that it is only available for iPad, not iPhone, I prefer my apps to be the same on both instruments.
The biggest con that I can see lately is that the developers are nasty, sarcastic and totally, head in the sand, about the whole issue. If I need to buy “no adds”, it won’t be this one because it is a waste to get it for the iPad only, and something different for the iPhone. I understand it is a free app and you need to make money, but you must be raking it in if I have the app open for less then a minute and have to close the frozen screen 6 times, no point in a calculator if you can’t use it for the interference of adds. The developers constantly state that the functionality is restricted because it is a free app and you must get the add free one instead. I would like to point out that statement is totally wrong, there is no functionality, all you get is adds in a constant stream if you pause for longer then a second putting in your next number, no time left to actually calculate, so therefore it is an add generator not a calculator.
Do yourself a favor and get a different app if you want to use it for calculating.
New update problem.... 2/5
By Onin the IGN reviewer
I update this app and then I open it, the app stretch the screen.
My device is iPad pro (2015). Can you guys fix it?
Loved it, but... 1/5
In iOS 13, the app is broken. You can’t get passed the “new feature” screen. The widget still works, so all is not lost. But the actual app is useless without an update.
Very easy to use! 5/5
And l’m not a techie!
Easy to use 5/5
Easy to use
Provides misleading information 1/5
Programmer assured me that by paying a one time fee that the pro version of this app would not contain advertisements. Was incorrect and mis leading. You will continue to be interrupted by advertising ... you are better off using a free calculator app.
Good calculator 4/5
I like the calculator and what it does but I purchased the app so I could get rid of the ads! No ads for about 5 days an snow they are everywhere why did I pay to get rid of ads and I’m still getting them! That’s my only complaint!
Best calculator app, but flawed 2/5
This is, by far, the #1 best calculator app in the App Store! It took us 9 years to find an app like this! This calculator app is incredible. It lets us copy and paste numbers from other apps, it works with iPad features such as SlideOver and split screen, it has built-in currency conversion, it can be used as a widget, it is blazingly fast to launch, it is easy to use, it is accurate, and it comes with some amazing skins! We love the high school sketchbook skin!! The only bug/problem with this app involves currency conversion. After we complete a currency conversion and we try to perform a math function on our newly-converted currency total, this calculator mistakenly REVERTS BACK TO THE OLD (PRE-CONVERTED) CURRENCY NUMBER for our math equation, which is very confusing and throws off all of our math functions. If someone isn’t paying very careful attention, they won’t even realize that they received the wrong total on this calculator. We have experienced many, many, many math mistakes because of this bug/problem with this app, and we only caught it a few times because we weren’t paying close enough attention. Once this bug/problem gets fixed, this app will deserve 5 stars.
Ads? I understand. But now it just freeze at the starting screen with introductions to new features and cannot be closed. I can only tap on ads or paying to fully upgrade it. Come on people, it’s shameless to launch an app that cannot work and ask for money. Shameless!
Thank u for telling us all the answer I’m really good at math now!
Bought Pro but still have ads 1/5
Bought the Pro version where it said no ads, yet here we are
By Bruce McLeod
I like this Calculator and I upgraded to the Pro version, but recently had to wipe my iPad and reinstall everything. Can’t find how to restore purchases like other apps. I’m only out another buck, but you expect things to work right.
Way too many ads 1/5
Way too many adds that it keeps interrupting. So annoying that I had to delete the app.
To Apalon Apps, to reply to your response... I understand that you work hard to create something and you should get paid for it if a consumer believes your product deserves to be purchased. But also there are other calculator apps that are free and work just as well as your app does with a lot less ads. As a consumer, I naturally got one of those apps after deleting yours.
I’m ok with getting ads because I’m trading it for not paying money. But as for your app, the amount of ads that I got (more like was bombarded) was unbelievable, so that made me want to write a review. That is all.
clean interface & great widget function 5/5
Love this simple app. Since calculator is not a built-in app on ipad as on iphone, i have to look for one that just works without too much distractions. This app serves the purpose seamlessly. The clean interface and widget function are welcoming bonus.
The worst app ever 1/5
I understand that it didn’t cost me an arm and a leg to purchase a pro version but I thought I was paying for ad free experience. What a bunch of crooks these developers are! In short, you are paying to see ads. You won’t see the calculator because ads keep popping up. Apple should remove this app altogether and not endorse this kind of unscrupulous creeps who cheat.
Unusable app 1/5
This was one of the first apps I downloaded, and I used it for quite a while. But the ads have become so intrusive, rendering the app unusable. So annoyed that I have taken the trouble to write my FIRST EVER negative review. Deleting the app.
By XU FRANKIE
Ads prevent me from using the calculator.
Thank you 5/5
Thank you for this app and we really appreciate that you made this 🙂😃😆😀😄😊
Too many pop ups 1/5
Pop ups make it too difficult to use. I understand the ads at the bottom but pop ups all the time. I can’t even evaluate the product.
Dis game poopy 1/5
Dis game poopy because it don’t have da awesome graphics like FORTNITE. I like de poop :)
Ads are overly obnoxious 1/5
These ads are unnecessarily obnoxious. They occur extremely often and restrict you from all calculations for 8-10 seconds. Sometimes the ads have loud and annoying sounds or videos. It is not cool. I’m positive that there are better and less frustrating calculator apps than this one
No ads untrue . 1/5
By scam calc
I paid 0.99 and it said no ads , I got ads and they want another 2.99 USD . Scam scam scam
Broken Ads and Condescending Developers 1/5
By Sarah Jaeb
I was considering paying for the full version, but the developers’ responses to all of the (entirely correct) reviews here have convinced me otherwise. The reviews point out that, while everyone understands ads support free apps, the ads here make the app absolutely unusable. The developer’s response is solely and repetitively to say that the ads support the app because it’s free.
“But we understand ads!” say the users. “These ads are a problem because they are ruining the app that they are supposedly supporting our free use of!”
“Ads support the app that you’re lucky not to pay for,” sneer the developers who apparently lack reading comprehension as well as customer service skills.
“If you want an app you can USE,” the developers mean, “pay us actual money. Otherwise we’ll take the disproportionately large per-use ad revenue you generate and YOU’LL take whatever you can get.”
As for me, I am happy to pay for an ad-free app - someone else’s.
To the developers: In case it’s not clear, the problem isn’t ads. It’s YOUR ads. And your attitude. If you respond to this review, do not tell me you’ll take my feedback into account for your future work. I don’t care, and also, you won’t.
