    Post Developing a calculator-- what features do you want??

    Hey guys,

    I am developing a calculator app because I don't like the stock one.

    My question is: what features would you guys like to see in a calculator app?

    Let me know in your replies! I'd love to know!

    graph functions
    take derivatives and integrals
    tables
    polar graphs
    series
    able to handle imaginary and complex numbers

    thats basically stuff that other android calculators dont have

    a good starting point would be to look at the capabilities of like a ti84 or something

    I'm in no way discouraging development here, but OP; have you tried RealCalc or Handycalc in the interim? I find both of those to be indespensible parts of my Droid software library, they are both free, and both KILL the stock calculator app. (and are BOTH present on my device)

    handycalc? hmm. never heard of that one. ill have to check it out. realcalc is really good though

    but all graphing calculators ive tried just blow. arity is terrible, calculus tools is terrible (good for computing derivatives and integrals but its UI is garbage), graphlite sucks. if you want to give something new, make a graphing calculator that works/has a good UI

    Only feature I need is the ability to add money to my bank account.

    How important do yu guys think UI is? That was my main reason for wanting to make my own. I thought the stock android one sucked and was extremely unintuitive.

    Do you guys care about skins?

    How about accuracy? How many decimal places would you like it to be accurate to?

    UI is the most important thing IMO. i have yet to see a graphing or calculus app with an even passable UI.
