As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’m a huge iPhone fan. Not a fanboy (there are issues), but a fan. The best selling point of the iPhone is, no doubt, the advent of third-party applications. I usually categorize iPhone apps into three main types:
- Useless and/or poorly written
- Copies of other apps
- Unique, useful, and well written
As the App Store has been open for quite a while, the abundance of unique apps is decreasing significantly. I have been in touch with a developer who is wrapping up the creation of an app that is unlike any I have seen before. While a couple math-based apps exist, none focus primarily on geometry.
TrigSolv is an all-around geometry solver that solves measurements for triangles, rectangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, circles, and ellipses. It will be available in the App Store for $0.99 in the near future (possibly this weekend). Having taken a course in geometry in the past, I can appreciate the value of TrigSolv for students, teachers, or professionals. The user experience and functionality is excellent – this app is a great learning aid, homework helper, or all-around tool for anyone who needs it.
