Graphing Calculator and Grapher

May 06, 2024

Catching up on my RSS feeds this morning, I came across the article “Graphing Calculator and Grapher” from Howard Oakley on The Eclectic Light Company.

I switched to the Mac in 2002, so I missed the original Graphing Calculator. When I got Grapher in 2005, I was quite happy with it! I still find it useful on occasion. It’s great to hear that the original is available for free on the Mac App Store and that it’s still being updated. The website for the app has more details, and includes a fun gallery of user submitted equations.

Also, the stories linked to in Oakley’s blog post are amazing. If you’ve got some time today, I recommend reading the account of how this got built or checking out the 2006 Google Tech Talks video.
