I downloaded and had a try. Look at my attached screenshot of graphing a hyperbolic surface, and you'll know why it's a joke compared to professional math software.

Zero amount of adaptive sampling / graph smoothing. (Running Gnuplot from Unix command line is way better.) This shows that probably it's just a cheap piece of software engineering putting all sorts of "educational" functionalities together, and the software engineers can't write hard-core numerical algorithm.
