Advice please.

I am an Autograph admirer - but have been given an Android tablet to use.  Is there an App that does decent graph drawing for Android? - that comes anywhere close to Autograph?

 

Suggestions please

 

Nick

Happy New Year

Hi Nick

I love my Nexus 7 (and 4!) - if I want to draw a graph then I tend to be online in which case I would use Desmos or WolframAlpha. You have made me realise I do not draw graphs offline! (I always have a pointer with me if away from a wifi network). 

Why not have a look and a play with apps on Google Play? Look for good ratings. 
I'll have a look too!

Hi

Autograph has not been redone for the Android but you can download GeoGebra, which is free. It is not as powerful as the PC version but is quite useable. I use it with a mouse to get greater acccuracy (being one of the drawbacks of touch screen). There is an input bar for entering equations & coordinates, lines can be coloured, thickened, the background can be plain or have a grid. 

GeoGebra has support via a Wiki and also ready created files. I have not yet tried opening a PC version file on my tablet or vice versa yet.

Hope this helps

Alison

Thank you for the reminder anout GeoGebra Alison - I had forgotten I downloaded that the other day - though I do see a few moans that it is sluggish on tablets.

Back at the apps - I have been trying the Mathlab one which looks pretty good - and lots of favourable reviews. Plenty of help on their website. Having liked them on Facebook I now have a 3 month trial of the pro version.

Just to say that Geogebra on the Galaxy Note 10.1 is great. The tablet comes with a stylus, which unline those available for the iPad has a fine tip & is therefore far more useable. 

If you've not tried a Note 10.1 for maths work then I would highly recommend it. I also have an iPad but barely use it since getting the Note. The finer tipped stylus also makes handwriten note taking much better than on other devices.

Hi there.

Yeah there are several apps that can help. With the passage of time things are getting more and more sophisticated.
