App Description

Learn and Program BASIC Language on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad! 

Hand BASIC - CBM Flavor is a compatible version of Commodore's version of Microsoft BASIC 6502 as found on the Commodore 64. 

Released for Educational purposes. 

BASIC (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) is a computer language designed so that it can be learned very easily. 

Hand BASIC is basically useful for writing relatively small sized programs for repeatable calculations and/or logic. For instance it is better than using calculator and repeating same formula and logic for different numbers again and again to get results. Hand BASIC users could be students, scientists, or any productivity workers.
