New iMessage App and iOS 10 support

MathX 2.3 is now available on the App Store. This major update brings great new features, including full support for iOS 10, a powerful iMessage app, and a redesigned Widget.

A tour of MathX iMessage app

iOS 10 introduces the ability for third-party developer to create iMessage app. With the MathX iMessage app, you can make calculations or access to your history without having to leave the Messages app. Let's take a look at how it works.

Watch MathX iMessage App overview

All-new Keyboard

MathX iMessage App includes our all-new keyboard. This new keyboard allows you to turn your keyboard into a trackpad on 3D Touch devices and brings alternative and smart keys.

Smart keys try to find which character is the most appropriate for the current context. For example, the smart key "( )" will try to find which parentheses is necessary.

We take our time to design the keyboard to take advantage of each screen size. For example, on iPhone 6 Plus and later, the keyboard includes additional keys you may find useful. You can see these keys when you hold iPhone in landscape orientation.

On the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the keyboard includes more keys, as well as useful shortcuts.

Our new keyboard will be available later in the app. We're really excited about it and we hope you’ll enjoy using it.


In the expanded mode, you have access to your history. It shows calculations performed in the app, the Widget, and the iMessage app.

Haptic Feedback Support

MathX iMessage app take full advantage of the Taptic Engine. You'll get a tap when you slide your finger over each alternative key. Press the keyboard and you'll get a double tap (even on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus). And you can enable Haptic Feedback when typing in Settings.

And there's a whole lot more to the MathX iMessage app. You can learn about the details on the MathX iMessage App page.

Calculator Widget

Along with new iMessage app, MathX 2.3 also brings a completely new Widget. Our Calculator Widget is now available in the Today View and Quick Actions menu.

The full calculator is still available in the Today Widget. Just tap Show More in the upper-right corner.

So there it is. Go ahead and update to our latest version and enjoy our new extensions.

We hope you’ll enjoy using it, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any feedback via email, or on Twitter and Facebook.

The power function in MathX 2.2.1

Today’s update to MathX, v2.2.1, brings a great improvement for the Standard Calculator, Graphical Representation, and the Today Widget.

We’ve improved our mathematical evaluation engine. With MathX 2.2.1, the power function can now handle negative numbers raised to a non-integer power.

The following example shows how xˆ(1/3) is plotted, using MathX 2.2 and MathX 2.2.1:

As you can see, negative numbers are correctly plotted. Here’s another example, this time in the Standard Calculator.

We hope you’ll enjoy using it, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any feedback via email, or on Twitter and Facebook.

MathX 2.2 is now available

Today, we've released MathX 2.2. It's a major update that brings three new operations. This free update is available on the App Store.

Complex Numbers

First and foremost in this release is the addition of a new section: Complex Numbers.

This new section includes two operations:

  • Complex Numbers Calculator: do basic mathematical operations with complex numbers such as add, subtract, multiply, and divide.
  • Complex Numbers Converter: convert complex numbers in polar form to rectangular and trigonometric forms, rectangular form to polar and trigonometric forms, and trigonometric form to polar and rectangular forms. There's also a graph which shows you the meaning of what you've found.

Generalized Pythagorean Theorem

In the meantime, we've also added the generalization of the Pythagorean Theorem. You can use Generalized Pythagorean Theorem to find the missing lengths and angles of a triangle.

Launching directly into a specific view

MathX 2.2 improves its automation capabilities. You can now launch directly into a specific view. Here's a sample workflow to quickly launch your favorite operations from the Notification Center.

Here’s another great example of using URL schemes to plan your homework in Omnifocus.

Check out the documentation for more.

MathX 2.2 also includes a number of improvements. We hope you’ll enjoy using it, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any feedback via email, or on Twitter and Facebook.

MathX 2.1 is available

We are thrilled to release MathX 2.1 today, which adds support for iOS 9, iPhone 6S, iPad Pro, and also brings new features. This free update is available on the App Store.

Back to the iPhone

When we released MathX 2.0 late this year, we introduced a brand-new user interface on the iPad. Today, we bring the iPad-style interface to the iPhone. We’ve optimized MathX so that it looks great on iPhones and takes advantage of iPhone 6(s) Plus's larger screen.

MathX 2.1 also includes nice features for the new iPhone 6s with 3D Touch. You can now press MathX icon to quickly launch operation. Or, in the history, press a calculation to peek, then slide up to see actions.

Quick Actions and Peek and Pop

iOS 9 support

MathX 2.1 brings full compatibility and great new features for iOS 9 - including iPad's new multitasking, keyboard shortcuts, and Siri "Remind me about this".


With iOS 9, Apple introduced new features that take the iPad to the next level. Slide Over and Split View allow you to have two apps on-screen at the same time. These two new modes are great for working through MathX.

iPad Multitasking

Currently, the only way to share content between apps is to use the Clipboard. So we added a shortcut bar in the Standard Calculator to quickly access Clipboard content.

Another new iPad only feature in iOS 9 is the ability to turn the iPad keyboard into a trackpad. This feature wasn't available until today, because we don't use the standard iOS keyboard. MatX 2.1 now lets you control the cursor on your iPad like the Apple keyboard.

Easy Text Selection

Spotlight Search

MathX 2.1 takes full advantage of the new iOS 9 Spotlight integration by indexing operations. You can now search for and launch operation from search result.

New Features

Along with new features for iOS 9, this update also brings some great new enhancements to MathX.

First, we improved the Standard Calculator with a really cool new feature. You can now define variable and it's really simple to use - type an uppercase letter, set an expression, then save!

Then, we added History. It keeps track of all calculations that MathX performs.

MathX 2.1 also includes a number of improvements, support for Handoff, new localizations, and others. It's a huge update and we hope you’ll like it.


10 December 2015

Today Widget

We are really happy to announce the release of MathX 2.0.2, which includes a new Notification Center widget.

With the MathX widget, you can make calculations from the Today View in the Notification Center, even on a locked screen. And you can tap the result to use it in MathX.

MathX 2.0.2 is available now on the App Store and it's a free update for all existing users.

Introducing MathX 2.0 for iPhone and iPad

On November 2013, we launched MathX 1.0 on iPhone. It provided a fast and easy way to solve some mathematical operations. Over the past year, we've continued to improve MathX. We added Graphical Representation, sharing options, and several nice iOS 8 features. Today, my brother and I are incredibly excited to announce the release of MathX 2.0 for iPhone and iPad - a free update for all existing users.

Universal App

That’s right, MathX is now a universal app. And this is not a quick conversion. We spent a lot of time creating a brand-new user interface to take full advantage of the iPad's screen. We've put all of the functionality and simplicity of MathX for iPhone on your iPad.

New Operations

There are two new operations available in MathX. The first operation is a standard calculator that gives you instant answers as you type. If you make a mistake, you don't have to start again, you can edit your expression like in a text editor.

The second operation is something we had on our to-do list for a long time and we are really happy we are finally able to ship it. Matrix Operations allows you to add, subtract, and multiply matrices.

Educational Tools

"We believe that technology has the power to transform the classroom" - Apple.We absolutely agree with this statement. When Apple introduced the iPad in 2010, we're still at university. So we saw how the iPad has changed the way we learn.

MathX 2.0 includes a set of educational tools. Now MathX lets you import your own formulas, theorems, and defintions which are synchronized between your devices using iCloud. And to make writing formulas easier, we have created a new technology called MaTeX. MathX supports also AirPlay Mirroring, so you can show graphs, formulas, and theorems on an external display.

MathX 2.0 also adds support for 5 new languages, new URL scheme, and a number of improvements. Learn more about MathX 2.0 or watch videos. We hope you enjoy the new features!

A huge thanks to everyone especially Morgane, Benoît, Charlotte and our beta testers.

MathX becomes a Scientific Graphing Calculator

We are incredibly excited to launch our first major update to MathX. MathX 1.1 brings Graphical Representation on iPhone. Type a function with a smart keyboard (syntax coloring, autocompletion) and MathX will plot you its graph. You can compare up to seven different functions simultaneously on the same graph.

Graphical Representation can be used from other apps through the x-callback-url protocol (see more about MathX URL Scheme). Here's a simple workflow which allows you to plot a graph for a given function from Launch Center Pro.

Sharing functions have been improved. Answers and detailed explanations can be saved to Evernote as plain text with auto-title and smart tags. We have also added three new sharing functions:

  • Export as PDF
  • Export as TXT
  • Print as plain text

MathX 1.1 also includes a number of improvements for Quadratic Equation, Cubic Equation and others.This new update to MathX is available as a free update on the App Store!
