How Calc is an education app.

I was rubbish at maths in school and the only way I learnt was to get the answer from the back of the book and reverse engineer it. I couldn't do a calculation until I saw what was happening in the working out. This is how I came up with How Calc.

In a world where kids have calculators in their pencil cases, on their phones, on their laptops, etc. teachers will have a hard time teaching kids what is happening in a calculation when the calculator is there and it just spits out the answer. How Calc still spits out the answer but it also shows the student HOW that answer was calculated.

How Calc shows the working out that is associated with a calculation. Be it for addition, subtraction, multiplication and long division (did anyone EVER understand how to do that?).

Why Should You Back This App?

In todays world of computers, finding an answer is simple but learning what is happening in the background is being lost.

If kids are going to use a calculator in school (which they all are) they might as well use one that actually TEACHES them what is happening in the calculation, rather than just spitting out the answer.

What Will The Money Be Used For?

Development of the app.

Welcome to appbackr, a crowdfunding marketplace for mobile apps!

appbackr is the first crowdfunding marketplace for mobile apps. Developers connect with 'backrs' to help fund, market, and distribute their apps.

Backrs make a profit as the app sells in retail app stores. appbackr allows anyone to take part in the new app economy...and make some $$$.

Some apps are finished and some are still being developed. Backing an app early gives you the opportunity to make a higher return.

Creating an app is hard work. Developers work tirelessly to build, perfect, and promote their apps in a very competitive market. appbackr gives them a place to find like-minded people to help support them in their journey.

We're glad you're here...welcome to appbackr!

Got it?...Thanks!
