Main Question or Discussion Point

Alright, so I'm about to take the AP Calculus AB Test (the College Board one, of course), but I have a question:

Am I allowed to have any Calculus applications on my calculator? (My calculator is a TI-84 Silver Edition Plus, and it is approved.) I have a Calculus application that can do several things such as rotational volume, Euler's method, etc. I know I can't have any programs because you can store text, but I wanted to know about applications.

From the College Board site:
College Board said:
Care is taken to ensure that the exam questions do not favor students who use graphing calculators with more extensive built-in features.
The application was not built in, but I'm assuming it does some of the things that calculators with extensive built-in features do.

AP: Calculus Board of Directors said:
Calculator memories will not be cleared. Students are allowed to bring to the exam calculators containing whatever programs they want.

Students must not use calculator memories to take test materials out of the room. Students that attempt to remove test materials from the room by any method will have their exam grades invalidated.

Seems pretty clear to me. You can bring anything to the test but can take nothing out.
