Before Grapher and Mac OS X, Mac OS 9 was bundled with Graphing Calculator, a similar program to that of Grapher that was bundled with over 20 million Macintosh computers since 1994 with System 7. Originally named Curvus Pro X, it was purchased by Apple from Arizona Software on July 22, 2004. All versions of Mac OS X prior to Mac OS X v10.4 have been missing a bundled graphing calculator application.
Grapher is a fully featured graphing calculator, capable of creating both 2D graphs including margins, classic, polar, lin-log, log-log, polar log and white as well as 3D graphs including frame, gradient, white, cylindrical system, spherical system, black and white and blank. Grapher is a Cocoa application which takes advantage of Mac OS X APIs and the Brushed metal Interface. It also supports multiple equations in one graph, and several pre-made equation examples.
Additionally, Grapher is a powerful and quick equation editor and it allows copying equations into LaTex format by simply right clicking on a given equation and selecting "Copy LaTeX Expression".
