Same an the real one

This is a great post! I like what you said about that RealCalc. It is convenient for student if you forget your calculator at home. You should see what we've written on Zuriapps' site (, it talks about the lates version this app in details.

RealCalc is a real scientific calculator, just like the name states, and students will find it useful in advanced math and science courses. At free, it's a fantastic bargain, as is the very reasonable paid version. Kids who need to work with fractions will want to opt for the upgrade. Parents may appreciate not having to buy another device, and kids will definitely appreciate having one less device to keep up with. The settings menu allows kids to customize a few specifics to make their calculation entries more efficient based on their preferences (like swapping the % and 1/x functions or using a long click instead of the shift key.) RealCalc is a valuable utility for students.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
