Once signed in your can synchronise your colours to the numbers in the calculator easily and quickly. Once you select them, they are locked in for your next use. You can also change them any time using the edit button on the top right of the screen.
Select your background colours for each calculator tile using the colour picker
We know that some synesthetes have their number colours on a different colour background, so we give you the ability to choose a colour for the tile background too. You can also change this anytime using the edit button, provided you are connected to the internet.
Turn the Answer output to show numbers in colour or not
We know that synesthetes sometimes have different colours for large numbers, so we give you the ability to colourise the answer output. You can turn it on or off anytime you make a calculation.
Save your selections
In Apple phones without a button simply swipe down to store your selections. In older iphones, you can save by pressing the done button. Your selections are saved across all your apple devices where you have installed SYNCalc.
When the outside world matches your inside world it can be an easier place to navigate. We hope you enjoy using the SYNCalc app as well as benefit from using it. If you don't, (and we will be sorry to see you go) all you have to do is uninstall the app from your phone.
The SYNCalc Story:
In 2014, Josh met Rachel, and he recognised she had synesthesia. Rachel was describing how the song titles in a music playlist all had their own colour for her. When Rachel eventually told Josh about how anxious numbers made her, he empathised. Even though Josh was quite confident with numbers (he had just finished a degree in science), he had always had bad anxiety about writing.
Josh asked Rachel whether she had ever used a calculator with her individual colours displayed on each digit. For example, if Rachel experienced a forest green when seeing the number ‘3’ – the calculator's digits would display that forest green. Because, as Josh thought, surely it is easier when such things match! READ MORE HERE . . .
