About powerOne

 

powerOne® is the smart financial and scientific calculator makes performing, customizing and sharing calculations simple.

powerOne does this in three ways. First, it makes it quick and easy to get results. Calculation templates are laid out like mini-spreadsheets. Input what you know and powerOne will calculate what you don't. powerOne runs perfectly as both an iOS app and in your favorite mobile or desktop web browser.

Second, creating templates is simple. While most of us can read and write sentences, far fewer have the same comfort level with numbers. That is because we often talk about math in abstract terms — x or y, A3 or C4 — concepts that most of us don't understand. powerOne, on the other hand, allows you to describe numbers using phrases, which turns equations into readable sentences. We even provide many pre-created templates that you can use and/or customize.

Finally, sharing templates is as simple as sending someone the web address.

Award-winning powerOne was invented by Infinity Softworks and has been distributed to over 20 million customers since 1997. We currently ship versions for iOS and Android, both available in their respective app stores. The new version for iOS is in pre-release testing. Partners have included DEWALT Tools, GE Security, Samsung, Sony, National Association of Realtors, ETS and the College Board, among others.

This completely re-designed and re-thought version of powerOne is the culmination of almost 20 years of thinking on our relationship with numbers. We hope you enjoy the service!


Elia Freedman, CEO and Founder (linkedin, twitter, blog), and Rick Huebner have been developing number-oriented products together or apart for over two decades. Elia discovered a love for numbers as a pre-teen, creating dice and card-based baseball games in an attempt to simulate real-life. This love carried to his first computer, an Apple IIc, and into college where he majored in accounting with a minor in computer science. Rick taught himself to program on a TRS-80, improving his skills in the military programming the ground-control center for weather satellites. He later worked for Harris Corporation, Metrowerks and Motorola.

When the Pilot 1000 launched in 1996, both Elia and Rick saw an opportunity. Rick developed a powerful calculation engine and a Palm OS math library de facto standard. His Parens and MathPad apps were scientific must-haves. Elia saw an opportunity to present numbers in a new way, showing all the data on the screen at once rather than in a small view window. This hybrid calculator-spreadsheet idea later became the best-selling powerOne calculator product line when Rick joined the company in 2001. Over the years and with the help of others, Elia and Rick developed versions for iOS, Android, Windows, BlackBerry, Palm, and Windows Mobile, distributing over 20 million software calculators.

In addition to Elia and Rick, Richard Luebke (linkedin, twitter), experienced technologist, business development specialist and investor, Todd Linkner (linkedin), designer, and William Kelly (linkedin), experienced CEO and business advisor, have joined Infinity Softworks part-time.
