    I'm currently an engineering student and I was looking around for some fun apps to play with on my droid. I have the following (pertaining to math & science)

    -coles calculus review ( just cheat sheets for calc and trig)
    -math alarm clock (do math problems to silence your alarm)
    -TED (some science news app)

    but thats really it. I mean im on the advanced math (completed my calc stuff a while back so the cheat sheets are only good for when i forget some integral ) and the math alarm clock is just a pain (my brain doesnt work when i just wake up so some of those are hard to solve for even me lol (fail) )

    I was just seeing if anyone out there was able to find some that were interesting to play with or any engineering-related ones in general

    Thanks guys

    btw its aerospace for anyone who was gonna ask :) (hence the plane avatar)

    I've been impressed with the multi-functionality of the Tricorder app.

    There's also Arity Calculator for a graphing calculator.

    I have Tricorder too, but I have not yet used it for anything other than watching it and being amused for about 10 seconds, then closing it. Someday I will be in an emergency and someone will shout "QUICK! I need to know all about the magnetic fields in this area!" and I will save the day. Then I will win the lottery and will be drafted into the NFL.

    Yup downloaded the formulas lite much more useful than coles calculus review. And for the graphing calculator, id try it but I already spend most of my day with my TI89 in my back pocket

    Heh, true enough. I think I've used it a couple times for the WiFi analyzer, but other than that, it's a "show off the Droid" gimmick for people who've never seen one before. I guess the Tricorder would have been a lot more useful back in engineering school, rather than real world day-to-day use. Back then, all I had was my trusty HP48.

    Man, I would love to see some really good astronomy apps available. All the ones I see are pretty basic*, or lousy.

    I also wish I knew someone who does developing, because I've got an idea for an app, but know nothing about making it.


    (* - I say pretty basic because - as an astronomy geek/nerd/devotee/etc for all my life - even stuff like Google Sky is simplistic to me)

    any difficult problem would require paper and pencil so an app with difficult problems is kind of pointless

    My apologies to anyone I might have offended. I tried to joke about writing an app to get me and my dorky-a$$ underwear off the locker.

    I hope you all understand it was in jest. ;)

    You may need to change "any" to "many" Over the years I have written many simple routines to handle difficult problems eliminating the need to put pencil to paper to find a solution.

    I'll have to take a look at that one.

    On my Dell Axim, I have an HP-15C emulator -- IMHO the best of the RPN emulators that I've seen. I sweat thru a lot of exams with the HP15C.

    I'd love to find one for the Droid.

    That thing pre-dates my education but a quick search turned this up...

    RpnCalc Pro

    It might be close to what you are looking for...

    The HP48 was also RPN, and I sweated through a lot of exams with that one in the early 1990s - everyone seemed to love it for its graphing, but my favorite feature was that it would differentiate AND integrate (some pretty complex functions, too). I just downloaded the Droid48 app, an HP48 emulator as recommended above, but I haven't had a chance to play with it yet.
