Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
picocalc is a tiny number memo which can be added and subtracted.
Nice, but needs work
This is a clever idea, but the name is confusing. It should called number tracker or something like that. Basically, it is used as a tracker. For example, say you only wanted to consume 1600 calories per day. You might start with 1600, then every time you ate something, you could just subtract the number of calories. This way the program tracks how many calories you have remaining. The program icon on your home screen lists the current number (calories remaining in this case). You could do the same thing with your monthly entertainment budget or any other number you wanted to track. There are some problems. The main issue is that every change boots you out of the program. If you have just one change, that's great. Otherwise, you need to reopen the program for every change. This alone is enough for me not to use it. Another problem is that it cannot display 0's or negative numbers. The developers say this is an Apple limitation, but I wonder if there's a way around it (for example, changing the numbers to numerals (characters), then displaying them, or otherwise displaying negative numbers with a red background and positive numbers with a green background).
First of all your I'm guessing using an iPhone or iTouch, therefore your using the same device as these kids... So obviously if there iPod is "junk" so is yours... And if you don't know that apps do sometimes crash the device your a complete idiot. And after saying and apple product is "junk" do you really think they are going to listen to a request from you? It's idiots like you who shouldn't be able to write reviews.
Also the app makes complete sense and does what it shoul, it's just a simple way to remember a numder. Good job
There IS more to it!
I was all ready to write a horrible review, but it actually isn't just an uber-basic calculator with text instead of symbols. The app's icon will display the result of your calculations (notice the figure in the icon up there is pointing at nothing) right on your home screen. As long as you aren't keeping track of anything too complicated, this might actually come in handy in various situations- especially if you don't have a pen and paper handy (and why should you? You have an iPhone!) More convenient than whipping out Notepad, I imagine. Meant to do one thing, and it does it well. Can't hate on it too much.
