best calculator apps for android
Everybody needs a calculator. Because of this, there have been many calculators through the years and they’re actually pretty easy to find. Most people use them to figure out stuff like how much to tip at restaurants and students literally must have them for school. Believe it or not, Android can solve all of your needs in this instance. Most people won’t need to look much further than the stock calculator app on their phone. Google’s calculator app is also pretty decent as a very basic replacement. Thus, we’ll focus more on some of the more complex calculators you can find on mobile. Here are the best calculator apps for Android!


Calc+

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Calc+ Is a newer, good looking calculator. It has a lot of the same aesthetics as Google Calculator and most stock calculator apps. However, it has some decent functionality. You get the basic arithmetic and some algebraic functions. The app also includes theming, a history that you can view, and you can change equations after you hit the equals button. There are a few more, but we don't think many will care about sharing equations with friends. In any case, this is a perfectly acceptable replacement for a stock calculator app. It's also completely free with no in-app purchases or ads (as of the time of this writing).
