Strong Points: Nice design, great organization
Weak Points: Nothing major
The Formula MAX app boasts a collection of 492 physics, 331 chemistry, and 370 math formulas and definitions. To do a bit of my own math here, that’s a total of 1,193 formulas/definitions…not too shabby. The app is nicely designed, with a sleek aesthetic and easy navigation. The content of the app is organized into the categories of (not surprisingly) physics, chemistry, and math. For each definition or formula, app users have the option to add it to a “favorites” list that is easily accessible from the main screen. Additional features of the app include a nicely designed, interactive periodic table, a logarithmic values calculator, and a trigonometric values calculator that gives the values for sin, cosine, etc. for a given angle.
