The best I've found!
This is a great, simple calculator with the best tape/history feature (that is displayed on the left side of the calculator) I've found. I've literally tried dozens of calculators trying to find a good tape/history feature. There was one i liked better, but the tape was on the right side of the screen. Being right handed, this meant I had to reach over the history feature to use the calculator. Having the history on the left means nothing is blocked and no buttons get accidentally pushed. I don't know why more developers don't provide this simple feature. The sketch pad is quite basic, but still gets the job done and is a nice touch. It is well worth the buck it costs!
Visually cool & simple but want a bit more options...
The display is very attractive and that, coupled by the history display, were the reasons for my purchase. However, there could be more skins (currently there are only five) but hopefully more will be added later by way of an update.
Second on my wish list is that in portrait mode, there is only one style - the skins are not visible around it like in landscape view, so changing the skin proves unaffected.
Additionally, it would be a big plus if I could email the calc history. I like that you can at least add labeling beside each calculation in the history list. But again, you can't export the results anywhere like you can with what you draw on the sketch pad, which is another feature in this app.
Potential is there, but Sketch feature is weak
I wanted to love this app. The potential is there for a great app, but the 'sketch' feature..... The feature that drew me to try this vs the dozens of calculator apps, is very weak. It needs pen tools, the kind available in practically every iPad note taking app on the app store. In this this apps sketch mode, I can not write legibly in anything other than giant size. It looks nothing like the precision and size of legible notes displayed in the app store description screen shots. Pen tips, color, line thickness, smoothness, etc.... There's nothing like that and they're needed to make this the "go-to" app for a business guy.
Improve that component and you have a 5 star app here.
