InstaCalc provides users with a fast, easy way to perform calculations and share them. Users can create any number of math problem or convert measurements.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

InstaCalc was created by Kalid Azad. Kalid was raised in Boston and obtained a degree at Princeton University. He spent time as a program manager at Microsoft before becoming an ambitious entrepreneur. His experience and technological background has helped him create the fun, easy to use and versatile application that is InstaCalc.

What are the differences to other apps?

InstaCalc essentially brings Excel and a calculator together. The main draw is the ease of use. Users simply type in the information they are working with and InstaCalc does the math for them. Users can also share Calcs which is another big plus and helps nurture a more interactive and social experience. The site even includes preset calculators to determine BMI, home loans, salary, video game prices, country populations, and website earnings.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The tools included in InstaCalc are available as soon as the user arrives at the site. InstaCalc uses an attractive blue and grey color scheme and is well organized. A new user can quickly find the main attraction (the calculator fields) prominently displayed right on the homepage. Other navigational links are positioned conveniently, including the shared Calcs tab at the top of the page.

How does the registration process work?

Visitors can use InstaCalc without creating an account or providing any personal information. The site gives everyone access to the calculator fields as soon as they arrive. Even the sharing features do not require a log in. Users can create a calculator and share it through the shared Calcs tab. During set up, users can even allow discussions which appear as a thread at the bottom of the calculator page. Calculations can be saved as well with no need to create an account. This works very well because users can still access all features and do not need to waste any time creating an account or logging in.

What does it cost to use the application?

InstaCalc does not require any kind of payment from its users. Anyone can use the available calculators or create their own for free. Calculators can be shared with results saved. Users can even post responses or start discussions related to a specific calculator on InstaCalc. There is no registration form or sign up required so there is no way to bill visitors who use the site. This helps to encourage more users to stop by and use InstaCalc and possibly return later or share the site with others.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Anyone who has any need or desire to work on a calculation can appreciate InstaCalc. The user can begin calculating and see what they come up with or use one of the more practical preset calculators, such as the website income calculator or salary calculator.
