When we first developed Bead, the focus was fully on ensuring our users receive a powerful and simple to use calculation tool that works well given the limited screen real-estate available on the iPad and iPhone and this indeed remains perhaps the primary benefit Bead provides those who frequently need to do calculations on a mobile device.
Then we started using Bead with a keyboard and it became clear just how good feels to use in that configuration as well. Bead has been designed to work using standard calculator key presses and pure keyboard input feels natural and fast.
We're really excited about the potential this brings for users of Apple's new iPad Pro (and iPad Air 2) and with this release, which fully supports iOS/iPad multi-tasking, we believe Bead is a perfect example of the ideal multi-tasking app.
Older version iPad users aren't left out either. This version of Bead fully supports use of the slide out app overlay bar accessible by swiping from the right hand edge of the iPad screen.
