Support for region-specific decimal & grouping separators
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 MakerMaker Incredibly handy for anyone working in electronics. Perfect for engineers and non-engineers alike.
“Just what this hobbyist needs” by JoshuaUnwin 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.
