It would be nice to have, but I doubt Apple's first update will include perfecting the calculator.:eek:

all I want is a "CL" button. Clear Last.

Its a pain when you make a mistake and have to star all over.

I'd like a square root...

It would be cool if, when rotated, the calculator gives scientific calculation options.

That's like saying, "I feel like if I needed to listen to music, I would just use my iPod that I spent $300 on". We bought the iPhone because it combines all of these things into one device, so having a scientific calculator would be a very nice touch (but obviously not vital at all right now, we have other issues).

You could also just use google IF you have internet access. I know its not what your asking for but its a temp solution until Apple decides to fix it.

I was thinking the same thing when I made a mistake yesterday and thought to myself there should have been a better calculator.

Well, there is a % if you just tilt the calculator into landscape mode. Is that what you were looking for?

I realize this is rather late in this discussion, but my company Sentry Apps, LLC has just recently made a businesss calculator for the iPhone and iPod Touch called BisCal. It includes the basic functions you mention, such as percent. So if that meets your needs, you can buy it at the app store.

We will be working on a scientific calculator soon called SciCal. So since you all had your different wishlist, and if you still want anything in particular, I encourage you to visit SciCal's forum and contribute to its features.

Thanks for expressing your opinions and wants. We app developers do listen.
