In messenger RNA, a set of three bases called a codon code for one amino acid. With 64 combinations of bases and 20 different amino acids, memorizing what codes for what is impossible and why use a weird, hard-to-read paper chart when you could use your calc! Just use the arrow keys to change the bases and the amino acid abbreviation will appear magically before your eyes! This might work for the Ti 84 Plus but I have not tested it yet.
(Disclaimer: requires a small amount of understating of how codons work.)

Visuals (1/2): Only uses a menu and homescreen, although I feel bad giving this a 1/2 as there isn't much else necessary to accomplish its goal. It just feels too empty or plain.
Speed (2/2): Only one button press to get to the main purpose of the program. Changes are all real-time and almost instantaneous.
Ease of Use (2/2): Simple. Select "Start!" and then make your codon. Could it get any easier than that?
Practicality (2/2): From personal experience, using the amino acid tables was super annoying. I would always be unsure of myself when selecting one. With this, I can simply type in the codon and the corresponding amino acid is guarantee correct.
Other (1/2): I really like the inclusion of an Info page for the people who don't read the README. I think it would be cool to include a DNA display.
