CALC Prime – The perfect fit for high-tech classrooms
February 2016 – The future for iPad enhanced classrooms in every school is looking brighter every year. However, one critical element has been missing in this otherwise perfect learning gadget – a fitting calculator app. That’s where the CALC app by developers at QApps® comes in handy and might just be the app of choice in iPad enabled classrooms for its simplistic, unique design and capabilities with focus on sharing and saving time.
Featured by Apple in the App Store over the past couple of years, CALC offers the ability to store expressions and recall them from history or even share them with others with a quick link. This feature is particularly useful in classrooms where teachers and students alike find it quite handy for their daily tasks. IT administrators on the other hand employ CALC’s built in Enterprise Mobile Systems (EMS) capabilities via an easy MDM / AppConfig setup. The latest school system to deploy of CALC’s special powers is the St. Vrain Valley Schools District that also took advantage of Apple’s VPP – Volume Purchase Program which offers 50% discount to educational institutions – and ordered 7,500 licenses of CALC Prime with the prospect for 20,000 licenses overall in the future (Note: realized mid. 2018). The St. Vrain Valley Schools (academic excellence by design) is an award winning school district with more than 32,000 of Colorado’s students and two Apple Distinguished Schools. Their success can also be contributed to the district’s foundation (efsvv.org) that has been quite a bit of help in shaping its bright future.
CALC has hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide and is available in a dozen languages. Many of CALC regular users are working professionals and students from all walks of life and they enjoy the instant calculations the app and its widget has to offer, or the it’s quick conversion capabilities. If the user feedback is any indicator – the app does help in getting a better math grade perhaps thanks to instant fraction representation of decimal numbers.
CALC Prime can be as simple or as sophisticated as one wishes it to be. It provides unique customizations of the UI, allows for programing custom functions or constants and incorporates an instant converter that can be pulled up with just a single swipe on the computed results. A built-in timer makes it super easy to keep track of the minutes remaining during an exam or whenever schedule get’s tight. There are many more features to take advantage of and the QApps UserVoice integration is always there to help. The combination of all these capabilities make CALC the ideal tool for a diverse spectrum of users.
