When you think of calculator apps, great innovations don’t usually come to mind. Most calculators function the same way, by punching in numbers on little keys. Rechner Calculator (Rechner meaning calculator in German) hopes to change that. This new application, available for $0.99 on the App Store, is the first of its kind to use gestures for operation.
Instead of the typical addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division buttons typically found on a calculator, Rechner Calculator users gestures, similar to how the popular to-do application, Clear works. The user interface is also similar, offering simple navigation and minimal clutter.
While gestures might seem slower at first, they are actually designed to help you perform calculations faster, and supposedly improve your speed.
