Smile Free Graphing Calculator - gCalc

Please Login to Remove!

I apologize if this isn't the right place to make announcements, but I wanted to let the BB community know about our free "gCalc" graphing calculator.

It's currently just available for Pearl and Curve users, and can be downloaded to your phone by pointing your BB browser to http://m.gwhizmobile.com. (Regular browser users can check it out at http://www.gwhizmobile.com).

It's still a beta, but hey, it's free!

Thanks

welcome to the forums. so far so good on the product. you might want to fix your profile to the left though, just in case you need help on a device issue. if you have vzw the pearl model is the 8130

I wish there was a download version. Not EVERYBODY has mobile internet.

Cool looking program though.

Any chance you could convert it to download for us who dont have access.

Thanks

Default gCalc download version and other info

We've put together a download version that will be up on our main website (http://www.gwhizmobile.com) probably by tomorrow. If you want a version today please send me an email. (Let me know if your OS is 4.2 or 4.3)

Also, we've put a new version of the 4.2 OS software up there to fix a screen freeze problem that some people were seeing.

Default Problem with OTA.

Hmm. I just tried it out with my 8130 (VZW) Pearl and it worked okay. You've got a few options - the first is to double check and make sure you're selecting the 4.2 link (it should show version 0.2 on the install window). Assuming you've done that, another option would be to upgrade your OS to 4.3 and then install the 4.3 version (which has a few more features). Lastly, you can download a version directly from our website and use the desktop manager to install it.

Thanks for the quick reply. I did select the 4.2 link. It's been a while since I last pulled the battery...maybe I should try that to start with a clean slate. You never know.

I did see the link to the jad version on your website; not sure how to install a jad through the DM though.

Default .alx Download page

You don't need to go to the .jad file. We've got a zip file you can download at the downloads page. (it's under the youtube video)

Default Supported Handsets

We've expanded the base of supported handsets beyond the Curve and Pearl. Most all BlackBerry handsets with at least the 4.2 BB OS should work ok (you'll need to download the 4.2 version of course). Please send us email at [email address] if there's any trouble. Thanks.

Can the gCalc graph functions with asymptotic behavior? Because whenever I try to graph 1/x or any variation, it gives me an error? Is this just a setting that can be changed, or is it an incapability with the gCalc? If so, is this something that is going to be changed?

That should work, but I just confirmed that it appears to be a bug. I'm guessing it's doing a divide by zero when x is zero. We'll get a fix into a future release. In the meantime you can approximate using something like y=1/(x+0.000001) - not a perfect solution but at least it'll get you closer.

Thanks for the feedback. Note that you can send us questions directly at [email address]

Thanks

Thank you very much, that way of graphing it does work for now. I look forward to the next version.
