[prMac.com] Albuquerque, New Mexico - Calculator, from Byte Works, is a full-featured scientific calculator for your iPhone or iPod touch. It includes six calculators that change with a tap on the screen. This release updates Calculator for the latest versions of iOS while maintaining compatibility with older versions.
The initial screen is a scientific calculator with 14-digit precision that pays attention to the little details. For example, some iPhone calculators report that the natural log of 0 is infinity. This is incorrect; it is undefined, and this calculator says so. Other calculators have trigonometric functions that are ill behaved for very small arguments, but this one has correct numerical behavior.
The logic calculator supports four bases and several logic calculations. It is easy to enter, manipulate, and display numbers in base 2, 8, 10 or 16, and a single tap of a button converts between the bases.
Four different conversion pages support easy conversions between common Metric and Imperial units for length, area, volume, temperature, mass, weight and speed. This is very handy for science and engineering, but has surprising uses in everyday life, too. How many teaspoons are in a tablespoon? The Byte Works Calculator will tell you.
Features are important, but the Byte Works Calculator has lot of little points that have a big impact on ease of use, like a design that looks like it belongs on an iPhone; big, easy to press buttons; a delete key in case the wrong button is pressed; and picking up right where it left off if interrupted by a phone call-even in the middle of entering a number. This adds up to a calculator that is easy to use but has all the power needed for scientific calculations, programmer logic calculations and conversions.
