    Droid Does Math

    Thanks to Valkf6 on another thread, I learned that by using the voice search I can do math problems, conversions, percentages, etc. I did not know this, so I thought others might be interested. No need for a tip calculator when I can just long press the search button and say 20% of 65.56 and get an instant answer.

    Examples:

    What is 25.3 divided by 7?
    Convert 1/2 cup to tablespoons
    What is the cosine of 25?
    Convert 15 kilometers to mile

    See these are things I never would of thought of. Just everyday there is something new I learn about the phone. Yes, I know voice search but I'm still amazed at what it can do.

    I knew regular Google Search could do math problems, but I never thought to use the voice search for this. Surprised how well voice recog. works for numbers, measurements, etc. Nice find!

    Very cool. Though the voice recognition doesn't always work as expected.

    As cool as it is to just say a math problem, usually I need it for more complex stuff. Been using one of the free scientific calcs, happy with it so far.

    You know I used this the other day to convert metric into inches. Never thought about using it for a tip calculator though, as I do use my tip calculator from time to time. This will be very helpful.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I had to try it of course and it sure did work. I want to show my wife, but either she will just nod her head or it won't work when I try to show her. I have bad luck showing off my Droid to her.
