[prMac.com] Jacksonville, Florida - Get Busy Living today is pleased to introduce Calculator X 1.0 free for iOS, its convertible scientific/4-function calculator that features a choice of two meticulously designed retro skins, which confer upon the virtual device a distinctive, classic look. Each skin is an entirely different design, with its own numeric display style, key shape, key size, faceplate, and color scheme. A Universal app, it is a simple 4-function device in portrait orientation and a full scientific calculator in landscape mode. Three additional skin designs are available as an in-app purchase.
* Choose from two classic, retro skins
* Three additional skins available
* Scientific calculator in landscape orientation, 4-function calculator when turned
* Scientific calculator includes 25+ standard functions, 15-digit display
* 4-function calculator offers extra large keys and four memory operations
Calculator X stands out from the other free offerings on the App Store not by offering any special feature, but by offering a special aesthetic. Whereas other calculators may offer a variety of color combinations from the standard CGI palette, Calculator X offers designs that emulate the appearance of real, handheld calculators. This is achieved through careful attention to every detail, including texture, reflectivity, depth, keyboard and display fonts, and color contrasts.
From the creators of Photo 365, the critically acclaimed photo calendar app for iOS, Calculator X follows Apple's own philosophy, making elegance of design as important as simplicity of function. Users of Calculator X enjoy the sense of working on a machine, rather than a surface. All calculator apps arrive at the same answers, but Calculator X gets users there in style.
"The goal in developing Calculator X was to offer users a fresh new look by looking to old classic styles," commented Benny Hsu of Get Busy Living.
* iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5, iPod touch (3rd/4th/5th generation), and iPad
* Requires iOS 5 or later
* Universal app optimized for display on all iOS devices
* 30.3 MB

Calculator X 1.0 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category. Additional designs are available as an in-app purchase for $0.99 (USD).
