Sounds stopped working after last update.

No sounds, no haptic feedback on iPhone 6s when using the calculator.

very frustrating interface

I have upgraded this app with IAP.

I want to love this app. Its appearance is good - not too plain not overdone. Apple Watch app is a good bonus and well laid out. I was looking for a combination calculator and conversion app.

Problem is I am constantly frustrated when trying to do simple things. The developer claims this app is intuitive, but I find the opposite to be true.

After a month of swiping, pressing, and searching for solutions on Google, I still cant figure out something as simple as getting rid of the $ sign in the calculator numbers display. I want to just do plain arithmetic, I have tried altering conversions, I am at a loss.

Swiping the result field left and right (but not any other part of the calculator) to access conversion options is not at all intuitive. Took me quite some time to figure out now to access the tape. Turns out, I think, that you first have hit the = sign, and then swipe down in the small field above results.

You hit a “settings gear” icon to clear the tape or email it, or otherwise. These are actions, not settings. They should not be behind a classic “settings” icon.

Other than the non-intuitive interface it is a great app. I think the developer can’t see the problem because they understand their own design and to them it SEEMS intuitive.

The “action” part of the interface, if you know what to do, actually works quite well. If you use this app all the time it may become second nature. If like me and I assume most people, you use this app every once in a while, you may find the interface to be frustratingly obtuse.

What this app desperately needs IMO is an on screen help function. Perhaps a ? symbol that when you press it brings up a screen overlay with text that describes what the various parts of the screen can do.

With that I would give it 5 stars.

No Support - Pro Features broken on Watch

Convert and Tips not working on Watch. Refers to check iPhone app. No way in app to report issues. Contact Us option doesn't work. Calcbot twitter support is DOA for over a year. Very sad for an app that used to be the top of its class. Lowest possible rating until improvements are made to support.
