Features Summary

SmartPad application (App)

TI's SmartPad App must be installed on your calculator in order to use a connected calculator to control TI-SmartViewTM. SmartPad is only available for TI-84 Plus and TI-84 Plus Silver Edition graphing calculators.

Using TI-SmartView emulator software

Connect a TI-84 Plus or TI-84 Plus Silver Edition graphing calculator to your computer and use it as a remote keyboard for TI-SmartView. If you press a series of keys on the calculator, those same key presses are repeated on TI-SmartView. This is useful if you feel more comfortable pressing real keys on a calculator but want to see the results on the computer.

Controlling TI-SmartView

Follow the steps below to use a connected calculator to control TI-SmartView:

  1. Connect the calculator and start TI-SmartView
  2. On the connected calculator, press APPS and run the SmartPad App (the App will not run if the calculator is not connected). The SmartPad title screen appears. Note: The calculator shows this title screen as long as SmartPad is running. All key presses and results appear on the computer only
  3. Press keys on the connected calculator to control TI-SmartView
  4. When finished, either press 2nd OFF on the connected computer OR disconnect the USB cable

Currently, SmartPad is not supported on TI-Nspire handhelds in TI-84 Plus mode. To control the TI-SmartView software with the SmartPad App, use the TI-84 Plus or the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition graphing calculator.
