1. Hello,

I create that thread to present your Abacus Counting Frame, a free application letting you to count and calculate like in the past. Abacus Counting Frame is available on Google Play Store : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ssaurel.abacus

You can discover Abacus Counting Frame in action in video on Youtube :

The Abacus is a calculating tool, also called a counting frame, that was used in Europe, China, Japan and Russia, centuries before the adoption of the written Hindu-Arabic numeral system.

Abacus offers you to discover both categories of abacuses :
- those in base 10 well known in Europe an Russia in which each wire has 10 beads. Each bead represents, according the wire where it is, a unit, a hundred, a thousand, ...
- those in mixed base (5,2) or (4,1) for whose each wire has 2 parts : a left part where beads value 5 units (or 5 hundreds, 5 thousands, ... according their position on the wire) and a right part where beads value 1 unit (or 1 hundred, 1 thousand, ... according their position on the wire). These abacuses are mainly present in Asia (China, Japan, ...)

Some screenshots :

Kids will love rediscover this old object on smartphones while the oldest will remember their younger years with happiness.

It is also possible to choose the number of wires that you want to display on the screen. A sharing feature is also available to share numbers created with your friends via the social networks.
