App Store Description

A dream calculator of the 70's, priced at $3,200 in today's dollars, now affordable for everyone!

RPN-97 Pro is the first complete simulation of Hewlett-Packard's legendary HP-97 programmable calculator for iOS. Produced from 1976 to 1984, the HP-97's features coupled with its capability to store programs on magnetic cards made it a huge success among scientists, engineers and other professionals. Thousands of programs were written for it. Now you can run them right on your iPad, with more ease and faster than ever before. To get you started quickly, download hundreds of program cards from our website for free.

What users said:
“The most delightful app I possess. The magnet card reader emulation rocks. Would have paid much more for this."
"As the owner of an actual working HP 97 calculator, I am blown away with this new simulator. Simply fabulous."
"Whoever coded this my hat goes off to you - what a professional piece of work, incredible app."

RPN-97 Pro is fully compatible with RPN-67 Pro, its companion simulator of the HP-67 calculator.
