You can add Ivy to Google’s portfolio of solutions for iOS. Available for free for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, Ivy makes solving “big number” calculations a piece of cake.

The app’s interface is pretty basic. When you open the app, you will see a yellow empty screen and a bottom tool to “introduce an expression”, where you can write any Mathematical expression you can think of.

Google explains on the app’s description that Ivy has “trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions”, so it’s not only for adding 2+2.

Maths apps for iPhone

Ivy displays the answers in a very “old-fashioned” way, and one that reminds me to the dawn of computers.

Students will mostly benefit from Ivy’s calculation abilities, but that’s not to say regular iPhone or iPad users can’t make the quick multiplication or subtraction on the app, specially when Apple’s tablet doesn’t have a native calculator.

Just remember you need to type in the multiplication, subtraction or adding symbols – that would be *, – and +, because this ain’t no normal calculator.

What do you think of Ivy? Please, let me know in the comment section.
