Mathematica Alternatives for iPad

Mathematica is not available for iPad but there are some alternatives with similar functionality. The best iPad alternative is MATLAB. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try GeoGebra Classic. If that doesn't suit you, our users have ranked more than 50 alternatives to Mathematica and seven of them are available for iPad so hopefully you can find a suitable replacement. Other interesting iPad alternatives to Mathematica are Calca, MathStudio, HP Prime Graphing Calculator and SIMO.

Mathematica alternatives are mainly Calculators but may also be Programming Languages or Statistical Analyzers. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Mathematica.
