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.
Follow the steps below to use a connected calculator to control TI-SmartView:
- Connect the calculator and start TI-SmartView
- 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
- Press keys on the connected calculator to control TI-SmartView
- When finished, either press 2nd OFF on the connected computer OR disconnect the USB cable
