HP Prime Apps - Assesham - 05-21-2016 05:45 PM

I'm a little confuse with the hp prime apps that i found in various OS Stores. All of theses applications only manage a display emulating the hp prime calc.
What is the benefit (execpt programs editing) of such apps in emulating, on an high pixels definition devices, the poor display of the original device.

If you have a real calculator, these app will do 2 things for you:
- Assuming that you always have your phone with you, but not your Prime, allow you to use Prime anytime.
- The apps are faster and have more Ram than the real Prime, so you can do bigger/more complicated math problems.

If you do NOT have a real Prime, they provide a cheaper alternative.
For example, a math teacher who might want to be familiar with all the calculators that his student use might have only a virtual prime.
