BA II Plus(tm) Financial Calculator App Reviews

- Only 2 digits - No landscape mode Pffffff...

One of my favorite calculators

This is one of my favorite calculators and it deserves more than 3 stars. Yet today I can only give 3 for one simple reason: Please (!!!) use size classes for the layout so I can use the calculator in split view mode on the iPad with the calculator in portrait layout while having the device rotated to landscape. A calculator, any calculator, not seizing the opportunity to get used alongside another app (like looking up stock quotes in Safari) is totally wasting its potential. There are calculators that can get used in split view mode, but dont we want to use the one were trained on for so long? Please Development Team - consider my humble request and let me access your calculator more often and better. Make it a paid in app purchase - I dont mind, think about the potential especially with the iPad Pro looming large on the horizon.

Great calc, but

it would be really useful if TI updated the app to support split screen on iOS 9.

Really convenient!

I was looking for this a while back so Im really happy to see it finally released. What Id like to see is some of the BA II professional functions, also one tiny graphical thing I like to see changed is the bottom button embossing it looks very jaggy and not smooth its a dumb thing but it looks off.

Top notch

Exactly like my real BAII. Now I have it with me at all times! Works great

Good calculator at a good price

Excellent the same as the real thing

BAII has been with me...

... since college and university. Now that Im studying for my professional accreditation Im happy to see it so easy to access on my iPhone! Now if someone can get my TV remote on here, well be cookin with gas!!!

So nice!

I am having this TI calculator. I was use to carry it all day. Now... Just the iPhone can do it perfectly!


Will not let you down. Seriously, get it. You have a choice, make it.


This is just GREAT! I no longer have to carry around my BAII PLUS with me.. I can just use the one on my iphone. And for people wondering, this application will keep the modifications you do to its memory such as changing the C/y and P/y to lets say 12 and 2 for morgages. So even if you close the application, once you open it again the values will still be what you last gave them just like the normal BAII plus. Its a great buy! Dont be fooled by the free 3rd party version out there its NOT true BAII plus and it doesnt keep the modifications you do to it.. this one is absolutly worth it and half the price of the "normal" one!

I had 2 BAII+

Simply outstanding. Exactly like the calculator. I mean exactly. If you are in finance you are either an HP guy/gal or a TI. If you are the later, just get it and youll never be in a meeting wishing you packed your calculator. Thank you!

Just like the actual one!!

Well I have both the Plus and the Plus Professional but I totally forgot them at home while I had was doing some homework somewhere. Downloaded the app over 3G and it was good to go. Good job Texas Instruments

Needs update

Pls update for retina display (would be 5 stars)!! Otherwise this is a great App

Need Manual

Why does this app not come with a user manual. Its a good calculator, but the app should link somehow to an instruction manual. Especially at this price of $14.

Just like the actual BA II Plus calculator!!!

Even though I have the actual calculator, I bought the app version for convenience. Based on other peoples reviews, I decided to buy it and its exactly like the BA II Plus. I still use the actual calculator, but the app is great to have in case I forgot the calculator (which has happened once) or something happened to it. The only thing thats missing is the manual. I know you can get it online, but itd be nice to have it with the app for convenience.

Need retina display & manual

Even a $3.99 app has a manual...

Functional. Ugly. Boring. Silent. Poor keyboard experience.

Perfect emulation of the BA II Plus financial calculator, but a terrible app. The app processes and operates exactly like the calculator. However, this app could use the following improvements: -"click" sound when touching the screen could be improved. It needs faster sounds that dont overlap eachother when the user quickly taps the screen. -optional "above the finger preview" of each button that is touched. This would help the user see precisely where they are tapping the screen. Like the stock iPod touch keyboard. -improved visual appeal (take advantage of the Retina display). -it needs an in-app "info" or "settings" toolbar that allows the user to at least give direct feedback, or change some optional audio/visual settings. -swipe functions would make for faster calculations, ie. To clear the display, swipe the screen from left to right. Far from a 5 star app. PLEASE UPDATE THIS APP!! I want to give it 5 stars.

Functional but not pretty

Works just like a BA II plus. Needs retina display support. @ $15 I expect retina display support. Also I expect multitasking support. I dont see why the app has to relaunch everytime. For those 2 flaws I subtracted 2 stars. Lets hope for some updates.

Good but could be better.

This App works almost as well as the real BA II Plus financial calculator. However, in my opinion, it needs two critical improvements to make it great. First, it really needs a better resolution (i.e. HD resolution optimized for iPhone Retina Display). Secondly, it could be a bit more responsive. Apart from these two quibbles, it is a good App overall.

What is it with Texas BAs and failing at key rollover???

The (real, physical) Texas BA is fairly well designed on the whole but has a huge design flaw. Basically they utterly failed to implement 2-key rollover in the way that any other calculator does. Try it with a real one: hold down a key (say 3), keep it down and release another (say 4), now release 3, and then release 4. The BA completely ignores the 4 key! This situation happens all the time when entering numbers quickly with 2 fingers. People are often confused as to why the calculator missed digits. So onto this iPhone software version- the engineers fixed the case I described above, but incredibly they left the following bug! Try pressing and holding 3, then press and release 4, then release 3. Amazingly the software BA has registered 43! This calculator is only useful to me for helping out students who like to use it for TVM calculations, I would never use it myself unless I had to.
