Have you experienced this before. You need to add a list of numbers together. You punch them into a calculator and get an initial answer. Concerned about having a correct answer you enter the numbers in a second time. But you get a different result. How do you know which result is correct?

So you enter the list a third time. It matches one of the previous results. But how do you know if it's correct? You enter it again and before long you are playing a finger-cramping video game from the 70's.

Well if you have experienced this and are tired of wasting time then StackCalc is the calculator for you!

The abacus, slide ruler, and calculator are examples of how how calculating tools have evolved over time. The need for greater accuracy, ease, and time savings have driven this evolution. We now have fully functional computers in our pockets with wonderful touch interfaces and colorful displays. So why is your calculator application emulating a thirty year old design?

StackCalc concentrates on capturing and validating your expressions by leveraging the special abilities of smartphones. StackCalc uses the display to its fullest extent. This allows the user to quickly visualize and validate the expression. Using common touch gestures the user with the expression allowing for the rapid validation or extension of the expression.

We here at Spazstik Software believe we are entering a new era of personal computing. The advent of pocketable personal computers which are always connected to an every growing list of cloud services make for an exciting future. Spazstik Software was founded to explore that future Spazstik Software is located in Aurora, IL.
