After over a month in hiatus, we’re now bringing back our suggested app of the week segment where we feature an app every week and recommend it to users with specific needs. This week, our focus is on people who are in need of a numbers-crunching machine.

The default calculator app in most Android phones can be considered as a worthy app for basic calculations that involve addition, multiplication, division and subtraction. Skinned and altered calculator apps from phone makers on the other hand offer a bit more power with additional functions such as those used in trigonometry, statistics and calculus.

But for those who are in need of more power and functionality, Quartic Software has come up with a pretty close-to-the-real-thing calculator app that brings the power of a scientific calculator to smartphone and tablets.

The apps features include:

  • Traditional algebraic or RPN operation
  • Result history
  • Unit conversions
  • Physical constants table
  • Percentages
  • 10 memories
  • Binary, octal, and hexadecimal (can be enabled in Settings)
  • Trig functions in degrees, radians or grads
  • Scientific, engineering and fixed-point display modes
  • Configurable digit grouping and decimal point
  • Full built-in help
  • No ads

There’s also a plus version that adds additional features to the basic app including

  • Fraction calculations and conversion to/from decimal
  • Degrees/minutes/seconds calculations and conversion
  • Landscape mode
  • User-customizable unit conversions
  • User-customizable constants

RealCalc Scientific calculator is available for free for Android with the plus version selling for around AU$3.69.
