  • Support for iPhone 3G & iOS 4.2
  • Resistance fields now accept abbreviated input values
  • Fixed bug where CapCodeCalc returned incorrect values for some input formats
  • Fixed bug causing MultiResCalc & MultiCapCalc to sometimes load incorrectly
  • Prevented modules from loading simultaneously when selected in fast succession
  • Fixed bug where Datasheet Viewer’s page bar was sometimes positioned incorrectly
  • Fixed bug causing ResCodeCalc to sometimes load with incorrect band mode
  • + add’l tweaks/optimizations – and more to come!

As you can tell we’re working on updates and new features with this app. Best of all, when you buy the app you get a coupon for Adafruit store for the cost of the app!

“Very useful “by MakerMaker5 star reviews!
Incredibly handy for anyone working in electronics. Perfect for engineers and non-engineers alike.

“Just what this hobbyist needs” by JoshuaUnwin5 star reviews!
I love the clean look and focused tools in this app. It has earned a spot on my first home screen…

Circuit Playground simplifies electronics reference & calculation so you can have more fun hacking, making, & building your projects! This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad.

  • Decipher resistor & capacitor codes with ease
  • Calculate power, resistance, current, and voltage with the Ohm’s Law & Power Calc modules
  • Quickly convert between decimal, hexadecimal, binary or even ASCII characters
  • Calculate values for multiple resistors or capacitors in series & parallel configurations
  • Store, search, and view PDF datasheets
  • Access exclusive sneak peaks, deals & discounts at Adafruit Industries

All that, plus updates with additional features & enhancements – MANY NEW CALCULATORS AND TOOLS being added! Not on iOS? An Android version is in the works 🙂 For now, if you’d like to support a cool Android app and developer check out ElectroDroid.

  1. "Support for iPhone 3G & iOS 4.2" YESSS! This seriously made my evening….yep the whole evening. Thank you for supporting the old school iOS!

  2. Thank you VERY much for iPhone 3G/iOS 4.2 support! I just bought it from the App Store.

    Out of curiosity, what did you have to do to be able to support the older device/OS?

  3. Me Three (on the iOS 4.2.1 support)!! THANK YOU!!

    My iPod touch 2G is very happy, as am I.
