New TI-83+ FLASH Apps
Posted by Eric on 21 February 2001, 23:11 GMT

TI has recently released a few new FLASH apps for the TI-83+, some a bit older than others. I doubt too many people will be interested in the Chinese Help program or even the Catalog Help program, however their new StudyCards™ program might raise some eyebrows. Basically, it allows users to create flashcards to be used with any subject, such as when learning vocabulary. Looks like TI is finally expanding and realizing that calculators can be used for other things besides mathematics...

There's also the Probability Simulation app which helps users understand probability theory.

All these programs are free. Thanks to George Limpert for the news.

Note: you'll first have to log in to the TI online store before you can use the links above.

Update (Eric): Also, dated February 15th is the US Presidents concept app for the TI-89. This program gives a picture and information of the first 43 presidents of the USA.

Hmm, did'nt Tinews.net have that out for a while?
I'm glad they are free, because I think all apps should be free.
I think Catalog help is long overdue, 89 has had that since day 1, and I know it is in the handbook, but who carries around thier handbook? HEY! That would be a great poll! Do you carry your handbook? Yes/No/I lost it.
Why Chinese language help? I didnt know that many chinese used/needed 83+help. Maybe this is just one language they will introduce of many. Maybe others are on the way, huh? (French, spanish)
Flashcards is good idea. Maybe we will see it on other calcs soon.
FC!

Personally I think it's a great idea that TI has released the Chinese Help because I am chinese and although i'm not a beginer, begining TI users might want this program. The Vocab program i love alot because it helps people study,llike for the sats.

No offence, but don't all of you speak English? Or is English your second language?

Whether a person speaks English or not, it is nice to have a program in their own, preferred language. Although a lot of Chinese people speak English as a second language, they still feel more comfortable with Chinese, and read it faster. Also, you cannot read your second language as fast as your first language.

Possibly most important is the fact that mathematics is fairly technical, and you are not likely to learn the second language equivalents for mathematical term as well as you learn them in your first language.

And even if English is your first language, you may prefer to work in another language. English is my first language, but I feel more comfortable using a Russian text editor (yes, all menus and messages in Russian).

I think it's great that TI is catering for the non-English speaking population of the world. Let's hope this is followed by more non-English flash applications.

Yes, in some cases, such as when their first language is Chinese, this is a nice program, but if you were born in America, you already know English, therefore, it being your first language. In this case, this is a worthless application. I am not trying to tear it down, but I'm just trying to get my point accross.

What reason do you have to believe that the people who posted these comments are American anyway? ticalc.org has users from all over the world. I've seen people state in comments that they live in countries as diverse as Bosnia, Sweeden, Japan, UK and India, just to mention a few.

HUH? Dude, I was born in China and came here when I was about 4 or 5. I am now 13, can speak, write, and do what ever else that needs to be done in PERFECT ENGLISH. Unfourtuatly, I am illitarate in chinese (well, I have the reading power of a pre-schooler.). So your comment that your second language can't be read as easily as your first language is not completely true.

Well, thats my two cents.

This is true. The only 'new' ones are the study cards and the probability simulation app. Apparantly someone visited the site for the first time and thought it was all new :)

this is a little off the topic but which one has more memory, a 83+ silver edition or a 89? I wanna know bad but I dont understand the 572k and 1.5 megabyte.

The new 83+ Silver Edition will have about twice as much raw flash/archive space at the TI-89 with current OS installed. However, the TI-89 provides an enormous amount of ram over the 83+SE.

It depends on what you want to use it for and what you want to have while waiting for other programs from TI to be released. 83+SE programs and 89 programs are not compatible.

Wait a minute. Aren't you the one who says his programing group is going to make millions off of internet on a calc and you don't even know what 572k and 1.5meg are? Can you say full of shit?

Who says you need to know about kilobytes and megabytes to sell calculators and/or run a site?
I get your point though...
