• Calculator app works best for homework but not daily operations

The app could transform handwritten mathematical expression to the answer. It could recognize and process expressions from fractions and exponentials to trigconometric functions to different constants. By handwritting users could input much faster than typing. It could also solve single variable equations.
The app could help solving intermediate level mathematics problems. It is most useful for students in secondary school since it still lacks quite a lot of common operators in college level, factorials, summations, integration and differentiation etc.
It may not be so useful for people only do daily operations (a normal calculator would do well) but it is great for students.
Be aware that the result is sometimes given too fast, before users finishing the expression. Better to add an “enter” button or reaction time option in settings.

• Tips for using the product

Use a stylus rather than finger.
