    "A calculator is a calculator, so comparing them has to do with how well they respond to common needs. This one is very user friendly, and understands that hitting an equal sign all the time is one push that can be eliminated by giving the solutions automatically. Copy and paste can be done with one press, which is very useful. This can handle fractions and complex numbers, and will work great for the cast majority of common needs. "

    "This isn't a calculator app. It's only useful for keeping track of Bitcoin prices. All it does it aggregate information from blockchain.info to do that. It's pretty useful to have all that info in an easy to access place all at once, but it shouldn't even be called a calculator."

    "As an Economics major and a quarter filled with courses in Statistics I needed to find a calculator app that would be perfect for my courses. BA Financial Calculator Pro is what I needed and more, so much more. This is a premium app no doubts about it. This app, once I grabbed it for my iPhone, and played around with it has channelled the exact functions of the professional product. That's right, it emulates everything that the original BA II Plus Professional can do. It has the same algorithms and it reproduced the same features. It's basically the Texas Instruments BA II Plus Professional Financial Calculator on the go for your phone. So good, I couldn't ask for me. There's a slight learning curve if you're not familiar with the calculator but there's such a wealth of resources out there to get you on your way with really good tutorials all around. Hands down my favorite and the best app I could have on my phone for my needs."

    "For the problem of not having an accessible scientific calculator, I think this application is one of the better solutions out there. Its relatively easy to pick up but one still does have to know the ins and out of a scientific calculator to use it. Would rate 5 stars if it had some simple guides to use and solve complex equations that have to be entered in a certain way."
