    Equation Keyboard & Graphing Calculator

    Hey all, just looking for some good apps. Mostly for Android but similar apps for my Windows desktop would be of help as well. I have done some searches and found quite a few offerings but I wanted to ask the people who use these types of things regularly directly and see which ones line up with those reviews/searches.

    Mostly, a good keyboard for typing equations with things like theta, lambda, delta, sine, cosine, square roots, powers, etc.... I find myself needing to do Google searches for specific equations often for help in understanding them and this would help immensely. I know how to type a lot of those within a Google search but something built and streamlined specifically for that purpose would make it a lot easier and save a ton of time.

    I have a decent calculator for Android already but it has no graphing functions and I would really like to find one that is good all-around.

    Thanks for any suggestions and help!

    That looks unbelievably great! I would still need a mathematical keyboard though, just to make things easier. Again, both for Android (mostly) and Windows.

    [Edit] I do see now that the Windows browser Pro version does come with a special keyboard. I did not see that on the Android app though. does it have one and is it only for within the app itself or can it be used on say a Google search?

    If you are willing to pay, here is the standard add-on for Word.

    Yeah, I found Math Type in my searches and it looks good as well but I think Wolfram Alpha Pro with it's soft keyboard will work well enough for me on my desktop. It is also priced reasonably, so I think I am good there. Just a good mathematical keyboard for Android and I should be good to go, at least for now. As I learn more and start getting into more complicated equations, I might need to re-evaluate at that point though.

    PocketCAS is the most advanced mathematics application for iPhone and iPad. It can help you with any kind of math problem, from elementary school all the way up to calculus, algebra and statistics. It can replace your old graphing calculator, help you with your homework, and assist you in any kind of calculation for university or work.

    Re: Equation Keyboard & Graphing Calculator

    Thank you for responding. Unfortunately, I do not use Apple and I could not find anything related to the name PocketCAS in the Google Play Store.

    [Edit] I removed the link because it was not an actual solution for getting PocketCAS onto Android. I cannot find anyway of getting PocketCAS onto Android, so if anyone knows of a way, please let me know. For now, I temporarily downloaded Algeo Graphing Calculator and Graphing Calculator by MathLab and will try those for now. If anyone knows of something better, please post.

    Again though, Wolfram Alpha does a great job helping with equations. It can calculate and graph along with a step by step solution. The keyboard however is app only and as such I would really like to find a good mathematical keyboard for using in Google searches and the browser for those times when I might need it.

    I will post back after extended use or if I have a problem with it, just to give an update. Thanks for the suggestion!
