Gear Patrol: Rechner Calculator App

Bean counting has never been our strong suit, which is why we studied our12c and TI instruction manuals like a boss back in the day. As technology progressed, we thought our math skills on the iPhone were still pretty snappy, until we came across the Rechner Calculator.

The uber-sleek design is what draws users in, but it’s by no means the best trick up this app’s code. While most calculator app makers focused on translating the button-bopping experience to the touch screen, the Rechner embraces swipes and gestures to speed up calculation times by up to 200% — given you’ve mastered what flick does what. For instance, users can swipe from left to right to add, or reverse the move to subtract. The truly advanced stuff like dividing and multiplying, unfortunately, is less intuitive and can only be accessed via a drawer in the app. Gripes aside, it’s still a slick piece of nerd swag and well worth the dollar if you still prefer to do the math yourself, rather than beg that cold-hearted Siri to calculate the tip like a toddler.
