I've been borrowing people's phones for TOXIC for a long time now... unfortunately with ios11 it makes things more difficult.

The biggest issues I see are:

-rotating phone sideways doesn't automatically show scientific calculator any longer
-if you set up the phone, then have them unlock their phone, the calculator app is open up front as opposed to being in the back ground

Any work arounds yet...?

Cheers

@ Durgy - I have an iPhone 6 with iOS 11.0, but am not experiencing the issues you described. Scientific mode appears when rotated to landscape. Once the phone is setup, I rotate back to portrait, hit the Home button, and lock it. When the phone is un-locked, I'm on the Home page but the Calc app does not display until I tap the icon. Have I misunderstood your description?

Thanks for the response Marshall,

You've understood exactly what I was saying. Ideally, what you describe is ideal behavior.

Unfortunately, I tried it on 2 separate newer iphones at a gig recently and it just doesn't work the way it used to. Last night I was able to borrow a iphone 8+ with ios11 and again, same problem.

Well that is interesting. Yeah, no issues with my older iPhone 6. If I can get my hands on a newer model, I'll play with it and get back to you.

I was able to replicate the first issue. I suspect you're trying to access the Calculator from the Lock screen. When launched this way, it does indeed prevent you from rotating the app to access the Scientific Calculator. Honestly, I just use my own phone when presenting a TOXIC-based effect, having performed the setup prior to the presentation. When the Calculator is run from the springboard, it behaves as you'd expect, i.e. able to access the scientific mode. Hope this helps.

Thanks Marshall again for the response.

Unfortunately when borrowing a phone - things just don't work as smoothly as they used to due to issues mentioned earlier.
Hoping others might chime in with possible work arounds.

Cheers

Same issue here... very disappointed as I used the ruse of trying to guess their pin all while doing the dirt work.

If you only need to do basic multiplication you can get away with only +0x0 and no bracket in the event the screen won't rotate.

As you enter in each value and press "x" the total will show "0" but the force number will show at the end when you press "=".

A good workaround if you are already in the middle of a routine and can't start over.

For a more full featured toxic app using your phone have a look at iThump with TOXIC+.

+0x0 is great if screen won't rotate but unfortunately has the issue you described of always showing '0' when x is hit.

It also does nothing to solve iOS11 issues mentioned at top of thread Smile

That IS a great workaround.

I recently ran into this situation live and had no idea what the heck was going on. Very strange.

I posted a video in iUnlockYourMind Facebook group of exactly how to perform Toxic on a borrowed iPhone and in the lock screen.

Enjoy, it’s FREE.

Myke Philips is an iPhone legend and has solved this issue. Not mine to share but buy IUnlock as its the most powerful app I own and the side bonus is that you will get his solution for this!
