Albuquerque, New Mexico – techBASIC, from the ByteWorks, Inc., is a comprehensive software development environment for programming, data collection, displaying sophisticated interactive graphics, and analyzing data. The new capabilities added in techBASIC 2.2 give professionals and students access to powerful technical computing software that until now cost thousands of dollars, and was only available on desktop platforms. techBASIC 2.2 adds new features for solving complex mathematical functions with ease and accuracy, including:

* Numeric integration for calculus
* Fit curves to data with polynomial and linear regression
* Special functions for statistics
* Solve simultaneous equations with LU decomposition
* Numerically solve functions using zeros of functions
* Professional-grade random number generation for world-class simulations

Three new tutorial blogs on the Byte Works website let students and professionals concentrate on the problem at hand, not learning a new development environment:

* Using techBASIC as the ultimate power-user’s graphing calculator
* Fit lines and curves to data with linear regression
* Solve difficult integrals or check calculus homework with numeric integration

The foundational pieces of techBASIC that make it a powerful technical computing platform for collecting, analyzing and displaying data include:

* Access to the accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope and GPS heading and location
* Access to external sensors using HiJack
* A matrix-rich version of the BASIC programming language for writing programs and analyzing data
* Support for 2D and 3D interactive graphics

techBASIC continues to be an integral part of project based learning in the STEM classroom by helping students to:

* Understand physics from real data, like zero G on a swing
* Check calculus homework with fast, accurate numeric integration
* Quickly plot functions to understand coordinate systems

Many samples are included with techBASIC, and the Byte Works website includes a growing collection of projects, Quick Start Guides and a Reference Manual with dozens of complete working sample programs to benefit both new and experienced users.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 7.4 MB

Pricing and Availability:
techBASIC 2.2 is $14.99 (USD) and is available worldwide in the App Store Utilities category.
