Windows Phone App Review: Gestulator

Gestulator for Windows Phone

Gestulator is a calculator app for your Windows Phone that does away with the operations buttons and relies on swipe gestures instead. Gestulator is limited to the primary arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication) but if you need to do some quick calculations, I can see it coming in handy.

Gestulator

For the most part, Gestulator functions like your basic calculator. Just enter your value and swipe in a particular direction to determine the operation and then enter your next value. The calculation appears up top with the equation just below.

Here is the Gestulator's gestures:

  • Swipe up to add
  • Swipe down to subtract
  • Swipe to the right to multiply
  • Swipe to the left to divide
  • Double tap the screen to remove a figure
  • Tap and hold the screen to clear the calculator

If you should need a refresher, when the calculator is clear there is a "i" button in the upper left corner that will pull up a help screen. Additionally, as you swipe in whichever direction, a key is exposed to show you which operation you are selecting.

Gestulator is a free app for your Windows Phone that you can find here at the Windows Phone Store.

Windows Phone App Review: Gestulator

8 Comments

Interesting concept for a calculator. I'm just not sure that it is logical enough. I suspect users want more feedback on the swiping and perhaps add a tiny visual directional pad to show the direction of the + x and more. Gonna try it to see if i can get used to this

Give it a try, you'll find the gestures intuitive and yes there is visual feedback for what your swipe will work as.

Nice idea and also looks lean. But it don't accept "." when calculating, what's up with that, or am I just bad at calculating? I use a calc when im at the store and if something costs 2.50.....or 45.50 it seems to reset. Now another icon instead of that + on the tile and it could be something.

Hi!

I'm the developer of the App.

The decimal issue is known and is fixed in next update. Just wait for v 1.1 notification :)

Thanks for using the App!

I don't know what you are experiencing in regards to the "." but if I press 2.5 and swipe up and press 4.5, it displays 7. Seems to work for me.

The fact that it calculates as you go can be problematic if you are entering information as it's printed elsewhere as it is disregarding the orders of operations, so a user would have to enter in the correct order.

Neat interface though.

Hi!

I'm the develoer of the App.

The Calc works perfectly for most of the users while some of 'em are reporting issue while using decimal. It has been fixed for next update v 1.1

Thanks for the feedback, and for using the App! :)
