Digits is a tape calculator for iPhone and iPad that combines the flexibility of a text editor with the brains of a calculator. Digits 3 is “a top-to-bottom rewrite” and the new version is out today.

Here’s how Digits is described:

Digits is Shift’s highly-rated iOS calculator app that features an intuitive, fully correctable and editable line-by-line tape history. It uniquely provides spreadsheet-like editing with calculator-level simplicity. Tapes are stored as documents so that groups of calculations can be saved, shared and edited conveniently. Comments can be added to each calculation line, making the app ideal for expense tracking and budgeting.

Digits 3 builds on the smart tape calculator foundation with an all-new design and lots of modern features like Split View support on iPad so you can use Digits side-by-side with other apps, iPhone X display optimization, and 64-bit support.
