BANGALORE: Writing a bugfree C# code to develop an app might sound distressing to many, but Pratik Mohapatra , 15, excels in the art. The teenager has developed a number of major ideas, some of them finding space on Microsoft’s app store as well.

The latest by the 10th grader from National Public School, Koramangala, is ‘Calculator Hub’ — an app with a combination of six calculators on one screen. “This app gives a variety of options to the user, that too on the same screen of the phone. It includes a BMI Calculator with two options, and you just have to swipe tochange , a temperature conversion calculator, a scientific calculator, an age calculator and calculators for simple interest and compound interest ,” Pratik explains.

Why a calculator app? “My dad bought an Android phone and told me he didn’t like the calculator. He didn’t find it comfortable to use and advised me to try and make a calculator app,” he says.
