  1. As the developer I may be biased but I suggest taking a look at Perpenso Calc. It is five calculators in one: scientific, statistics, business, hex and bill/tip. With its support for RPN, fractions, complex numbers and many other features it is comparable to traditional handheld calculators. Worksheets offer a more natural way to enter, edit and view data and to perform some common calculations. iPad specific functionality includes customizable display lines.

    A related iPhone app, Perpenso Calc 4, is a lite app and is upgradable to full via In-App Purchase.


  2. PhySy has released PhySyCalc, the only calculator on the app store with units. And we’re not talking about a unit conversion app. PhySyCalc is a full blown scientific calculator that can add, subtract, multiply, divide, raise to powers, and do many other operations with numbers and units representing actual physical quantities.
