As a financial professional, this app had the same look and feel of the actual BAII calculator, which was very useful on a day to day basis. I updated today, and I get this garbage layout with tiny buttons that you can’t hit, and the entire screen is MUCH smaller than the other. I paid for this app 8 years ago, paid $14.00 the full version, and have used it on a daily basis. This is an absolute slap in the face to everyone who paid for this app. TI needs to fire the person who greenlit this. Go spend your money elsewhere.
I wish I would not have updated. The old interface was easier to read since it matched to my physical calculator.
The update is not good. The keys are microscopic. It doesn’t look or feel correct. Why pay for a BA II Plus app if it’s just another lame calculator app? We originally paid for a BA II plus EMULATOR. And it WAS but now it isn’t. Guys.... lame.
I don’t like the new UI. TI should provide a setting to revert back to the original UI that looked like the physical BA II+ calculator.
I much prefer the old design
I loved this app for years because it is like having my normal BA2 plus in my pocket at all times. Out of nowhere they change the look and add useless black bars to the sides. I started using the free Apple calculator. Don’t buy it until they change it back.
Am updating my original review. I HATE the new format. Before it had the same look and feel as my computer. Now it doesn’t look anything like any calculator. Ugh 😠😠😠 Original Review (previous 5 stars): I just downloaded to iPhone 6S and had none of the resolution issues previously mentioned. This app works just as well as the original calculator. I believe the reviewers claiming a glitch skipped a set-and-forget step they did 20 years ago when following the book's instructions - be sure to set p/y =12. After that, everything functions just fine. Love this! One less device to carry around.
I don’t understand why the new design of the calculator doesn’t use 100% of the screen’s real estate? The new design has a WORTHLESS black band on either side of the calculator, forcing the buttons to be unnecessarily small. Next “improvement” should be to remove these black bands so that 100% of the iPhone’s screen real estate is used. It seems so logical, a company like Texas Instruments should be able to figure it out.
Great app and very easy carry out everywhere. But I rather the previous appearance since it makes me feel like I’m using a real calculator and never confuse.
The recent update to the Ui makes it easier to punch in numbers. Before it was a mirror or emulator of the calculator which didn’t provide a good user interface. I am glad to see development work continuing
