Calculator 0.6.1 fresh out of the oven

Alright guys, I got a sweet new update for you tonight.

0.6.1 update features:
- much better handling of really big and small numbers. Really large or small numbers will be properly formatted in scientific notation and will allow powers of up to +/-999 while retaining a relatively decent amount of accuracy (as accurate as your favorite iDevice). At that point big numbers go to Infinity, small numbers go to Zero and the calculator will reset. I'm quite proud of this new feature and feel this is sufficient number space for any calculating one needs to do (if it isn't I guess let me know via email!)
- I also fixed a small number of quirks when entering numbers and such to make it look prettier and much more polished
-Made the area where the numbers are displayed a tad larger

At this point this calculator is nearing the point where my focus will be turning to adding those scientific functions you all have been requesting. This will take some time so be patient me, I want these features too but I want them to turn out right.

Please download and please send me your feedback in the comments or email (Yes I do regularly check both)

Calculator 0.6 out in the wild!

Hey guys got a nifty update out on the market for you to download.

The 0.6 update includes:
- Fixed a couple force close bugs when dividing by zero and such
- Much better handling of larger numbers. This is a nice new feature as the calculator will now shrink the text in the window when the text is getting long so it doesn't spill off the end. This should help those of you who love to calculate them big numbers =) Although it will eventually be too big if you go up past a couple trillion (it's not a perfect update) this is a good start and will be sufficient for most of us.

My life will be getting busier in the coming weeks but I still hope to keep pumping out consistent updates for you guys!

Enjoy and please email me with any bugs/or suggestions you have!

Calculator 0.5.3 is on the Market!

I published two minor updates back to back tonight for your calculating pleasure.

0.5.2 fixed some minor number formatting bugs (thanks Hondo!)

0.5.3 updated the layout slightly

Download them. Enjoy them. Let me know what you think.

Calculator 0.5.1 Out!

Calculator 0.5.1 just arrived on the market.

This is mainly a bug fix release. The calculator no longer FCs when the answer has repeating digits in the answer. Thanks to Lyle for alerting me to this.

I am currently working on making sure numbers format better when working with really large numbers (they still disappear off the screen when longer than about 8 digits). I don't intend this calculator to be used for super large calculations but it would be nice if you could tell what you were working with and still keep good accuracy when you wanted to!

As always, download the new version and tell me what you think!

Calculator 0.4 is on the Market!

Here is the initial release of my simple but beautiful calculator app. I tried to mimic the look and feel of the iPhone's calculator app while adding some additional functionality of my own. It only works in portrait mode right now but I plan to add landscape in the future.

Some future goals of mine include:
-Add landscape mode
-Add additional functions (ie. Trig, Pi, Sqrt...)
-Ability to change skins as well as layout of the calculator

This app will be free for a limited time to celebrate its release.

Any questions, comments, bugs or suggestions don't hesitate to send me an email at stormindormanproductions@gmail.com


And finally here's the qr code for your phone!
