Also, ikj, it's not an emulator, the whole thing has been rewritten and compiled for iOS.
That's what I said (or tried to say) but in more detail, yes.

A native port of NSpire Software for iPad ? At last, TI still wants to follow the new educational paradigm, the era of exclusive calculators should be replaced with new and small computers, like the cheap tablets which isn't need a horse-powered hardware to run math software.  :)

 However, I think the best CAS ever released in Android Market (now Google Play) is the full port of Maxima (even it was written in Common LISP   ;D), but it require a lot of training to use it.
 (Even I only use less than 10% of all libraries  >:D)
 Maxima CAS is far more feature-rich and capable than NSpire, since it had a huge library of functions and programs, but lacks any ploting  capabilities, except some commands to draw in GnuPlot.
 So far, no CAS from Maxima, Maple, Octave or Mathematica is capable to use special functions, integration with  [wikipedia]Residue_theorem[/wikipedia], and more important: is native capable to use [wikipedia]tensor[/wikipedia]s, which is very usefull in engineering and Analytic Geometry.  :)

Update :

The Apps are back on the App Store :)

- TI-Nspire non-CAS iPad application
- TI-Nspire CAS iPad application

Also, TI actually took some time to improve the app (which is why it took more time than it would have taken just to fix the "issue") :
Quote
What's New in Version 3.4.1
- Added: iOS 6.1 support
- Added: iPad with Retina support
- Improved: Bug fixes and optimizations

So it wasn't the fact that it featured user programmable stuff?(which everybody's nagging about  for some reason)

Yeah I am curious about what was the security issue, although it could just have been a typical security exploit like some stuff Internet Explorer had on Windows, letting people access your iPad or something.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Nah :P

Nothing important. More of a user-annoying bug AFAIK.

The PR text is available :)

Texas Instruments unveils breakthrough TI-Nspire Apps for iPad®
TI extends its most powerful graphing technology into apps
that will change the way students visualize, engage and interact with math

Now available on the App Store

DALLAS (February 20, 2013) – Texas Instruments (TI), the most trusted brand in graphing calculator technology, “took a major step forward in our mission to improve student understanding and achievement in mathematics” with the release today of two new innovative apps:  TI-Nspire™ App for iPad and TI-Nspire™ CAS App for iPad, said Melendy Lovett, president of Texas Instruments Education Technology. 
 “The apps fill a critical need for an all-in-one math teaching and learning tool designed specifically for the iPad,” said Lovett.  “TI is extending the proven benefits of TI-Nspire technology to the tablet platform.  TI’s goals are to provide educators with the most powerful math apps for the iPad and to engage students while helping them reach a deeper conceptual understanding of math. Beyond the new Apps for iPad, TI continues to support teachers by providing world-class professional development, and access to free classroom-ready activities for use with the TI-Nspire Apps for iPad; activities can be integrated seamlessly into curriculum and are available at TI’s Math Nspired website.”
The TI-Nspire Apps for iPad were designed and refined in collaboration with researchers and classroom teachers, including Stephanie Ogden, Dean of Research and Development at L&N STEM Academy in Knoxville, TN, who also teaches Pre-Calculus, AP* Calculus, AP* Statistics and STEM.
 “The TI-Nspire Apps for iPad are truly transparent technology, allowing students to touch and interact with math with little awareness of the tool in their hands.  Students experience mathematics more directly and they are beyond engaged—they are excited about learning,” Ogden said.
Unique features of the apps, which meet critical curriculum needs from 7th grade through college, include:
  • All-in-one functionality for performing calculations in proper math notation; graphing and exploring functions, equations and inequalities; constructing and exploring geometric figures; creating, plotting and analyzing data in lists and spreadsheets.
  • Interactive keyboard that toggles between math notation and QWERTY configurations for placing notes and instructions alongside problems.
  • Dynamically linked multiple representations of problems that encourage students to make crucial connections by observing how equations change as they touch and interact with shapes, graphs and objects on the screen.
  • Familiar operations for creating and saving documents and sharing them using email, iTunes®, and other file sharing options.
  • Interaction with the built-in iPad camera interface that enables students to take photos, import them into the app and overlay graphs and equations on them to illustrate abstract math principles in the physical world.
In addition, the TI-Nspire CAS App for iPad has a powerful built-in Computer Algebra System (CAS) which enables students to symbolically solve equations, factor and expand variable expressions, complete the square, find derivatives, compute limits, find exact solutions in irrational form and much more.

TI-Nspire Apps for iPad will be featured in two full days of workshops and break-out sessions at the 2013 T3 International Conference held March 8-10 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

The TI-Nspire App for iPad and TI-Nspire CAS App for iPad are available for $29.99 each from the App Store on iPad or at http://www.AppStore.com.  Teachers are eligible to receive a free, one-year license of the TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS Teacher Software with purchase of one of the TI-Nspire Apps for iPad.  Detailed information about the TI-Nspire Apps for iPad, including a brief video overview, is available at http://education.ti.com/ipad .
