Description of App

Our best-selling correctable calculator for the iPad and iPhone turns 2.0!

Why do so many of our reviewers call Digits Calculator THE BEST CALCULATOR ON THE APP STORE? Its uniquely correctable tape means never worrying if you entered a calculation correctly because you can check your entries. Make a mistake? Simply tap any entry on the tape to correct it (or edit it, insert a calculation, copy it, add a label/comment and more). Once the item is corrected the total is automatically recomputed!

Digits is great for:

  • Adding up expenses, labeling and emailing them

  • Quickly calculating a couple scenarios by editing any previous entry to automatically update the total
  • Easily creating a grand total from a number of previous calculations with flagging
  • Keeping a series of short calculations available for later reference
  • Sharing via email, printed output or by files.

Accessibility Comments

Most of the buttons are labelled in a way that you can determine what they are. However, a few are less obvious. Mix these in among a large number of buttons, and the result is quite difficult to use.

A more fundamental problem arises when you try to edit items on the tape. This will display a dedicated menu in a pop-up, but there seems no way to close this menu whilst VoiceOver is enabled.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Few buttons are clearly labeled.


Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.
