Calculator Widget – Adds Calculator to SBSettings

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

Calculator Widget Calculator Widget is an application that adds a Calculator to your SBSettings toggles. I honestly delayed on checking this on out because it didn’t seem too exciting but, once I checked it out, I realized that this could be a very helpful widget!

Once installed, you will need to go into SBSettings, the More option and then the Set Toggles option and turn on the Calculator. When you select the Calculator “toggle” in SBSetting, it will open a calculator. It is not the stock calculator it is a much more simple calculator. However, there is one thing I really like about this widget. If you tap the Home Button when you have the calculator open, it will go back to your SpringBoard however, you can then tap the Status Bar and it will bring the calculator back up. This is nice if you are in an email or Safari or your notes and trying to do some calculations…it allows you to quickly switch back and forth! [Read more…]

Numerus – Scientific Calculator

Available In: App Store       Price: $1.99  

Numerus As a math and science teacher, I do a fair share of tutoring to make some additional income. I often carry my trusty TI-83 Plus (special edition blue, baby!) with me, but there have been several times when all I had was my iPhone. I will admit that the included iPhone calculator makes for a pretty decent substitute, and I get my scientific calculator functions when I rotate to landscape mode. However, there remained some functionality that was to be desired, and having a one-line display seems to remind me of the difference between a TI-30 and its bigger cousin, TI-83.

When sitting side to side with my TI-83 Plus, Numerus clearly has fewer buttons and no graphing capabilities. However, the app does pack in a decent number of buttons and their corresponding math functions. Numerus offers a multi-line display so you can see previous calculations right above your current calculation. All of the regular calculator functions along with those normally found on a standard scientific calculator are displayed on the iPhone screen in portrait mode. Different modes (degrees, radians, grad), along with a catalog of math functions exist. A “2nd” button allows you to choose other functions that don’t have a dedicated button, similar to what you would see on any commercial scientific calculator. [Read more…]

White Calculator Mod

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WinterBoard calculator-white2 Personally, I’m not huge on calculator mods. I actually use my calculator quite frequently so, I’m not sure why I’m not big on modding it. However, every once and a while I find a decent mod. Calculator-White is a mod that gives your calculator a white theme and give the buttons more of a handwritten look. One thing I like is that it also mods the extended calculator (when you turn your iPhone to landscape mode while in the Calculator application). Calculator-White is activated/deactivated via WinterBoard and is available via the source. Screenshots below.

WinterBoard Mods

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WinterBoard Below are a few WinterBoard mods. The first is a theme, iBLOB (via iSpazio), is a very clean theme. It basically mods the wallpaper, dock and icons…it contains 70 icons. The second theme, Elegance (via ModMyi), is very similar to the A8stract Theme. I actually prefer some of the icons from the A8stract Theme a little better. Also, if you like the Elegance theme, you are going to have to do a little work. Most of the stock icons are in Italian and need to be renamed to English in order to work. But, if you don’t mind SSH’ing it just takes a little time to get them right. The next two mods are transparent mods. [Read more…]

HPCalc 2.0

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

HPCalc is basically the craziest calculator application I have seen yet. And, as with all my calculator reviews, I will do my best to describe it! I probably only understand about 5% of this application so those of you who are like calculator gurus, go easy on me! :) When you open the application, it will open to a landscape calculator. As if that calculator wasn’t enough, you can select the HP icon in the upper right corner and get quite a few more options. On the main options menu you have the options; Select Calculator, Preferences, Constants and Unit Conversion.

If you select the Select Calculator option you will see that there are four calculators to choose from; HP 11C, HP 12C, HP 15C and HP 16C. In the Preferences option, [Read more…]

CheckPlease 1.0

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

CheckPlease is the only free tip calculator/bill splitting application in the App Store (as of right now). This type of application is one that I like to have available on my iPhone. It is so much easier to type in a few numbers and have it spit out the totals than it is to sit around trying to guesstimate what everyone’s share of the bill is! When you open CheckPlease, you can enter the Check Total and the Tax Amount (in dollars). To enter a number just tap in the box in which you would like to enter the number and a keyboard will pop-up. When you are done typing in the amount, select Done in the lower right corner. It will automatically generate your Subtotal.

To figure out the tip amount, slide the star until it is where you would like it on the tip% bar. The tip percentage options range from 0% to 30%. Once you have the tip% where you would like it, [Read more…]

GoodCalculator 2.0

Tipper 1.2

Tipper The update to Tipper changes the application so that all the fields are customizable. You can now enter any number into the Sub-Total, Tax %, Tip % and # of People fields, instead of having to choose from a range of numbers. There is also a new Settings options. In the Settings, you can set a default Tax and Top percentage. You also have the ability to email the developer. I think if you enter a number into the default percentage fields in the Settings menu, they are supposed to default to those numbers every time you open the application. However, [Read more…]
