HP 12C Financial Calculator for Positive User Reviews

Functional, but could use small improvementsAt the time of writing this review I am currently studying elements of Bond Pricing & Duration. I have a physical HP 12C Platinum that I left back in my room by mistake, so I downloaded this app. So far it's just like using the real thing (although admittedly I have not performed any complex computations). My one suggestion would be to update the app's resolution to that of the iPhone 6-7/iPhone 6-7+ native display resolutions. On my iPhone 7, there are black bars on the left and right hand side of the screen (when held horizontally) that are somewhat irritating. Surely this fix would not constitute a large undertaking for Hewlett-Packard 4/5.Version: 2.0.1

Great implementation, but ...This surely is the definitive iOS implementation of the HP12, but it needs an update or it will not work under iOS 11. For those planning to run iOS 11, do keep this in mind..Version: 2.0.1

PerfectFinally. The original 12c look and feel right on the screen. Works really well. To see the full calculator requires the device to be rotated to landscape mode. Fixing that feature would be nice but for heavy users of the 12c, this is the app we have all been looking for..Version: 2.0.1

App is working on the latest iOSI got warnings from iOS that app may not work with the latest iOS, but it works, so I’ve updated my star rating to five))).Version: 2.3.1

Please update!Works just like my 12c. I like the portrait mode, which why I chose this rather than the '12c' lookalike. Update! Please update this app so that it will be compatible with future versions of iOS. I prefer this app to the knock off versions out there..Version: 2.0.1

My Favorite Calculator Needs An UpdateHave used an HP 12C going back to 1983, so paying the high price for the app to use on my iPhone & iPad was worth it. Calculating home loans, ReFi and managing investments are all easiest in a 12C. This app needs to be updated to work with future Apple iOS releases. If HP lets this app to be dropped because it can't work on our devices they need to refund at least half of what they charged users for the app. My 30+ year old HP12C calculator works fine, my HP12C app should be just as reliable..Version: 2.0.1

Thank you for updating it!I use this app nearly every day, not even kidding. It has one of the four coveted spots on my dock for crying out loud. I wish I could make the control panel calculator button open it up too. HP-12C forever!.Version: 2.3.3

Key clicks need to be changedCalculator is great. But the key clicks are intrusively loud. HP - please make them more subtle, like those in Apple's own calculator app..Version: 2.0.1

Perfect and irreplaceableWonderful App - the real thing, other than HP's old tactile feedback! Please update to conform with upcoming IOS..Version: 2.0.1

Turn off clicking for iPhonePlease modify the iPhone version so that the clicking sound can be turned off. This feature is included on the iPad version but on the iPhone the only way to get rid of the sound is to turn down the volume each time the app is opened..Version: 2.0.1

Exactly as it shouldI do not agree with the preceding negative comments. As someone that has used the physical 12C for years, this app is true to the original. Using this on the iPad2, I find the graphic quality is stellar. Since using RPN (reverse Polish notation) the first time, I found it logical and straightforward. If you're thinking of buying this app and you haven't used RPN before, you owe it to yourself to spend 5 minutes training yourself, you'll love it. Yes, there other free apps that purport to emulate the beloved operation of the HP 12C...and I've tried pretty much all of them, but this is the one to get. The other "free" apps are all lacking. Today I found this app on sale for $4.99 as a special for the upcoming school year (september) and grabbed it having watched the pricing for 6 months waiting for a price drop. Kudos to the designers in keeping this app true to the original, 5 stars for sure, 10 if I could!!.Version: 2.0.1

Need RPN?This is the ticket. I sometimes think RPN is particular to lefties. No learning curve unless you are right minded (pun intended). I started with an HP41C back in the eighties. OK, I will admit it - the logic used in the operation of "normal" calculators drives me crazy. Thank you HP for providing the 12C for the iPad. Lots of Fish.Version: 2.0.1

Love This App but.....I don't think this APP will run on iOS11. Added Nice to see the App updated for iOS11. Awesome calculator. I have the original HP12C in the office and the HP15C Limited at home..Version: 2.3.1

Ultimate fusion!I cannot fault this app. The juxtaposition of 1981 technology perfectly reproduced on an iPhone for 12c die-hards is a joy to behold. The clicks that others complain about is nonsense: it lets you know you have pressed a key, and an iPhone has a volume control - use it! We'll done HP!.Version: 2.0.1

Thanks HP for updating for iOS 11I have been using this calculator for years since I am hooked on RPN, and I was afraid that it was going to be neglected and made obsolete with the change to the 64 bit app requirement for iOS 11. Fortunately, HP stepped up and updated this app. In addition to the ability to run on iOS 11, they also made the key clicks quieter which is nice since they were obnoxiously loud before..Version: 2.1.2

Financial CalculatorI used the hp 12c for many years. I have now replaced the actual calculator with this app on both my iPad and iPhone. I leave the keyboard clicks on for my iPad but have turned them off to use my iPhone during meetings. The keyboard sounds are controlled in the general settings, and I have not experienced a problem with turning them on or off. In terms of functionality, I have not seen any differences between the app and the actual calculator. I primarily use those functions related to amortization schedules and the time value of money. It has worked very well for me..Version: 2.0.1

Excellent CalculatorThis makes it easy to have a full HP 12c on my iPhone and iPad. If you want pure HP 12c, it does not get better than this. I would like to see an HP 19BII app for the iPhone and iPad. I prefer the 19BII over the 12c since the 19BII has a back button, solver mode, better placement of the enter key and a multi-line stack display as part of numerous improvements over the 12c. For the physical calculators, my 30 year old 12c is still in use. My 28 year old 19BII has a cracked battery cover and the display is questionable. It would be great to have the 19BII re-incarnated as an iOS app. Until that day, get this 12c app..Version: 2.3.1

Almost great!I had a knock off HP 12 C on my iPhone for years. With the recent update to iOS, it stopped working completely. Just added this app from HP. So far I love it. One small complaint is there is a shadow on the numbers on the output display. i.e. the font that is used in the outlook display was design to create a slight shadow effect. The resulting effect is that it makes the output slightly blurry. Most people probably won’t notice but as you age and numbers/letters aren’t quite as crisp, it becomes annoying. Not sure why HP decided to add the shadow effect but it would be nice if could be eliminated or at least turned off. Overall, a good job!.Version: 2.3.1

HP 12C, fully functional or not?!I had this app--or one exactly like it--three or four years ago. It was exactly like an HP 12C in every respect. But then I had to restore everything onto a new iPhone, and all of the financial functionality disappeared. I was left with an, essentially, four function calculator. So I wonder if this is just a technical glitch and the guy who wrote the program is sick/deceased and is not able to read these reviews? That is, maybe he's not aware of the problem. Or maybe he got sued by Hewlett-Packard? But there's something funny going on here for sure. Erase that! I have found that the fully functional HP 12 C appears when you turn your iPhone sideways. Portrait, you have merely a four function calculator basically. But go to landscape, you get the full function calculator that I had a couple of years ago! Sorry about that but it appears other people have experienced the same "lack of functionality.".Version: 2.0.1

Excellent appThis works just like the real thing so is really handy when you need a quick calculation and your 12C is in your desk!.Version: 2.0.1

May 2021 Update Works!I’ve been hesitant about purchasing this but I couldn’t stand the Apple calculator. I noticed that HP just updated to support new iOS so I took a gamble and it seems to fully work in all modes. I’ll update this review after using it more.Version: 2.3.4

Will this be updated?Thank you!! it has been updated to work with latest OS..Version: 2.1.2

For CFA prepI like it. It recons to cfa & schweser notes' answers but this is not a toy. Make the effort to read the manual as this fin calc like all need correct data entry. Not as intuitive as my HP10bii but this is what is allowed to be used in the exams so time to man-up and learn to use the tool.Version: 2.0.1

Works great for my Mortgage teamWorks exactly and looks exactly as the real thing. Couldn't be happier! I've had it for over a year on my iPhone and iPad and I don't think I've carried my actual calculator since. My iPad makes the numbers bigger, easier to go even faster on it for quick house payments for clients. I would buy it if you're on the fence. Last one you'll have to buy!.Version: 2.0.1

Love my 12cTrue to the original physical HP 12c. There are other RPN calculators for the iPhone, but I want my app to work just like my physical calculator. This does it. Love that I always have my 12c with me. If you don't know what RPN is, you probably won't like this. When I got my first HP calculator in 1976, it took 2 days to get used to the process. But I've never looked back. Much easier way to perform calculations than the standard calculator..Version: 2.3.1

The best calculator is the one you always have with you.I have been trying to learn to use this calculator but I don't carry mine with me. I end up grabbing my iPhone and using the standard calc app for quick calculations. Thank you for this app! Now I never have to use the regular calc app again..Version: 2.0.1

Hard on eyesFunctionally o.k., but the keys are the same dark shade as the background and that makes for difficult viewing. Adjusting screen brightness doesn't help. Needs a little more contrast -- dark keys against a little less dark background would help..Version: 2.0.1

HP12CI have been using various models of HP Calculators for years. They are by far, the best financial and general purpose calculators available on the planet - the best feature being RPN. Once you have used and mastered RPN you will not ever want to go back to basic methods. Accolades and a HUGE thank you to HP for this App. Finally, we have a superb calculator for the iPad and one that works brilliantly. Worth ever penny and has my highest recommendation..Version: 2.0.1

Functional CalculatorNot sure why all the 1 star reviews. My guess is the calculator is expensive by app standards. It’s a functional calculator. Nothing fantastic but it works. I still prefer this to a standard calculator. However, while I work I grab my actual 12c and rarely use the app..Version: 2.3.3

Ios 11 updateThis app will not automatically update. Yes, I know this is stupid but that’s how it is. However, if you delete from your iPad or iPhone and reinstall it will now work on iOS 11. Go figure. HP is not what it used to be..Version: 2.1.2

Five stars BUTThis application needs to be updated to work with IOS latest version. I give it a 5 because I have been using this calculator for decades; in the 80's using the hardware and later since this app was first launched. I hope HP will be proactive and release the new version soon..Version: 2.0.1

Bug in program functionThis is a great app and a pleasure to use, but there is a bug in the program function. I tried to report it via support, but wasn’t able to. If you want to put a pause into a program with key press g PSE you do get a pause, but out of sequence. It works ok on the physical calculator, so it’s not my mistake. My simple program was to calculate VAT on a net amount, pause to show the tax, then show the gross total. The pause came at the start, not after the tax calculation. These are my program lines: ENTER ENTER RCL1 (The tax multiplier) x g PSE + SST I still have my 28 year old physical HP12C, with the original manual. The app is just as useful and user friendly subject to this one bug I’ve noticed. It works well on my iPhone 11 Pro and my iPad Pro both running iOS 13..Version: 2.3.3

Works great!Those who are reporting that the full functionality is not there either don't know how to read a manual or are shills for other apps. Works great and I use it all the time..Version: 2.0.1

If it doesn’t rotate to landscape modeCheck to see if you phone screen is in locked rotation. Mine was. App works perfectly if you unlock rotation in the control panel..Version: 2.3.1

Thanks 64 bitThanks for 64 bit.Version: 2.1.2

Great App!This is the real deal, just like my 12c! If only my iPhone screen was a little larger, the buttons would be a little larger, and it would be perfect. Works great! Warning: Make sure you want an RPN financial calculator and are familiar with the HP 12c before you buy this app..Version: 2.0.1

Updated for iOS 11Finally updated with 64-bit support the day after iOS 11 came out! Thank you..Version: 2.1.2

It DOES Work on iPhone 6sThis is not a review but rather a report of my experience with the app on iPhones. 1. It DOES switch to and work in landscape mode on my iPhone 6s running iOS 9.0. 2. It IS a fully functional financial calculator. However, the look and functionality of the venerable HP-12C are available only when the phone is turned to landscape mode. In portrait mode, the calculator is pretty much just a "four-banger." 3. The click sound can be disabled in Settings. 4. HP has not updated this app in several years. Consequently, the app uses less than all the screen area available to it on an iPhone 5 or later..Version: 2.0.1

Update: No update since 2012?Hey HP, are you going to update the app? Got a weird (intermittent) message from iOS 10 about compatibility issue. Unfortunately I didn't jot it down. Update: now that my iPhone is running iOS 11 this too expensive app is useless! 😡 Update 2: with the new 64-bit update, I'm once again a happy user of this app. ❤️ I swear I can't use the "regular" calculator anymore!.Version: 2.1.2

Good but no keyboard supportA very good calculator spoiled only by not having Bluetooth keyboard support..Version: 2.0.1

Click sound, and soon to be obsoleteUPDATE: Updated to 64 bit, and changed Key clicks to iOS default. Works fine now. UPDATE: I'm so glad I paid what was already marginally too much for this app, and it will become useless tomorrow. Thumbs down to HP! UPDATE: I'm changing my rating to 1 star until HP updates the app to 64-bit architecture. I use this app daily in my financial business (when my hardware 12C isn't handy) and I'm worried about losing access to this (expensive) app when iOS 11 rolls out. It seems that HP charged an arm and a leg for this app, then abandoned it. This app is true to the original EXCEPT for the key click sound! It's loud, slightly delayed from the actual button press, and basically a highly annoying sound. If I silence the phone, there is no feedback to let me know whether it registered a button press, and I'm likely to forget to turn the ringer back on when I'm done. Update this to a simple, unobtrusive click and I'll give it five stars. I still carry my real 12c everywhere. Edit: Just discovered you can turn off the clicks, but that doesn't solve the problem of no feedback, and the key vibrate is too long to be functional..Version: 2.1.2

FunctionalityThe HP 12C works fine on my iPad, but on my iPhone is is merely a regular calculator. It doesn’t matter which way I turn the phone, it stays the same. Is there something I am missing? If it doesn’t work on my iPhone, I might as well carry my physical 12C with me as it is a lot smaller than my iPad! Scratch that, I went into setting and turned on “Landscape Lock” restarted the program and it is now working..Version: 2.3.3
