TapBASIC is a programmable calculator in BASIC. BASIC is a widely used, easy to learn and understand programming language. Now you can solve all of your maths problems or code for fun while commuting, waiting in line or in any other spare moment.  “I wanted a flexible, powerful calculator on my iPhone that I could program to do almost anything in a simple, easy to understand programming language,” says the app’s designer and author, Gary Chiert. “The feedback from our users is that TapBASIC has already been used to program a tip calculator, solve quadratic equations, calculate logarithms, statistics, classic Newton Raphson convergence and Faraday’s constant. It is limited only by your imagination.”

Here’s what our users say about TapBASIC:

“I graduated from the Palm and needed a programmable calculator. This is the best. I adapted a thirty line program to calculate lens powers.”

“I am a freshman and I have finals soon. This app is great to check my practice problems! Thanks so much!”

“Works for me, easy programming, I wrote a formula to calculate my insulin for a meal bolus.”

“I made all my accounting formulas execute with user data so I don’t have to work so hard. Love it!”
