MyScript Calculator app wins Mobile App Showdown at CES 2013!!

I'll do a full post up on the Mobile App Showdown later, but wanted to get the word out that MyScript Calculator, an awesomely cool scratchpad-like calculation app (with handwriting recognition and the ability to solve equations) ran away with the MAS this year at CES. The app garnered oohs and aahs during the 4-minute pitch, and the applause-o-meter went off the chart as the crowd went wild for it at the end. If you grab one app this year, make it this seriously cool, award winning calculation app (currently FREE)!

During the demo, the crowd was clearly taken with the simplicity and ease of data input regarding the app right from the beginning. Advanced scientific calculator trigonometric functions (i.e. sin, cos, etc.) and equation solving also wowed. My Script clearly mades it easy to update or make corrections to formulas or simple calculations, and consequently share your results. It was the first app presented, and while some other rather cool apps came up after (that I will post up on later), My Script stole the show from the outset. You can grab it at the links above, or learn more about the app showdown here.
