App:  MaximaOnAndroid
Cost: Free
Author: Yasuaki Honda

MaximaOnAndroid is a Common Lisp based CAS mathematical program.  The latest version I am posting on today was 2.8 (6/13/2015).  Rather than talk about how awesome this app is, I would like to show you.  This app was recommended by Bill Zimmerly.  Thank you Bill!

Prime factorization of 13!, 23!, 33!, and 43!

Expanding, Factoring, and Integration

Distributive Multiplication and Proper Fraction

3D Plot of sin(y^2 +x^2)/(3*cos(y^2-x^2)) 


 Solving Equations, Finding the Numerical Approximation

 Julia Set About 1.1 + 3.1i

So that is a short demonstration of MaximaOnAndroid.  Check it out!   Eddie
