Bermuda Bill's Review of 17bii ProReviewed on 8/2/18 1:01 AM
I love this app - just as I loved the real thing for so many years. There is one thing that would cause me to add a fifth star to my rating - haptic feedback. It’s difficult - if not impossible - to really know if a button really got pressed as it is on a real calculator. When I’m entering numbers I’m concentrating on the keyboard and not in the display so I often don’t notice that I didn’t click in exactly the right place. I have my phone linked to my hearing aids by Bluetooth for phone calls so even though I have the click volume turned to the maximum the sound isn’t audible.

Will not accept input data for Date1 or Date 2, entering data results in an error message even when using the number format from the help menu example. I’ve used this function in the past, but since it was updated it no longer works. This is a great calculator please fix this function. I will change my review to 5 stars when fixed.

This calculator app was truly the best HP calculator, not now! With the new update it is not user friendly and if your expecting similar menu to HP calculator you will become very frustrated since it is not like the HP calculator anymore.

The listed value of 0 appears to be incorrect. NIST web site gives value of 4 pi times 10^(-7) N A^(-2). Developer has responded that this will be corrected. Update April 8, 2018: it has been corrected. Update to 5.0.1, go to the Codata constants and tap Update there.

I just found this marvelous emulation if my beloved HP17BII+ and it's better -- much better-- than the real one! For those who are unfamiliar, the greatest feature of The HP17 Is the ability to write equations and have the calculator solve for any single missing variable. You can store tons of equations and they are much easier to type on the iPhone keyboard. I use it for many specialty functions in my manufacturing business including pricing of complicated custom made items. The HP17 is far superior to the HP12C (though it doesn't have the nifty key layout) and this version is far superior to the real thing. I use it several times an hour all day every day. Thank You for this!

I liked the way it worked before yesterday's upgrade. I guess I will get new batteries for my real HP17BII and go back to it.

Tired of having to repress finance then time value of money every time i open the app. Cant the developers keep the last function used versus having to emter it all over again. Was a decent app. New version ruins it

So glad I found this app. The emulation works perfectly so I always know what to expect! The latest version has some menu changes that I’m not so sure about, but probably adds usability for those not familiar with the HP. Overall my money was well spent!

I’ve used a 17BII for several years. This is better by far! More configurations and easier to use.
