I'm looking for an app on the App Store but I forgot its name.

It is a calculator app that looks like it has been written on a noteblock.

You can store the solutions of calculations as quasi-variables and then reuse them later on.

I know it's available for the Mac and all iOS devices.

Does anyone know what app this is?

This sounds like the app Soulver which is available on Mac OS X and iOS. It allows you to use a mixture of natural language and spreadsheet/calculator functions to perform easily readable equations.

Thank you ^^ Lost it somewhere – Frederiek Mar 15 '12 at 13:05

This sounds like it could be Numi, which describes itself as follows:

Numi is a little calculator, that lives in your menu bar. It magically combines calculations with text, and allows you to share computations with other Numi users.

Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone. – Daniel Mar 16 '12 at 16:39
The link could disappear, and even it it was still there say next year, you are requiring the user to leave the site to view the answer, which is a poor user experience. Links are great, but you should summarise them also. I have amended your post for an example of how to do it. You can see the full changes in the edit history. – stuffe Mar 16 '12 at 22:27

Try this one as well It has variables and can calculate many expressions at once
