Biostats Calculator provides a comprehensive collection of biostatistical calculations. It is designed to provide easy access to the most common tests without resorting to a complex desktop statistics package. It also includes a sample size calculator for epidemiological studies, and can measure the utility and power of diagnostic tests.

Every test comes with a description, explaining when the test is applicable, an explanation on how to enter any required data, and a guide to interpreting the results. Interactive balloon help is also available, giving descriptions of technical terms.

5/5 stars

Excellent for sample size calculations

While other reviews have been critical because of lack of decimal points, I purchased this app - as a clinical researcher- solely for sample size calculations (where decimal point valued are not needed). Less expensive sample size apps calculated sample size only based on mean differences between groups. I was looking for an app with the additional ability to calculate sample sizes based on proportion differences between groups. This app has both features and performed excellently.
