If you can regularly make use of a calculator, you need to spend the money on this.

Here's why:



Reasonably sized keys. Accommodates pudgy fingers.

Give it a flip, and then... BAM!



You gots yer extended functionality.

Too tiny to comfortably enter in numbers, but the bigger keys are only a flip away.

I'm sure many people who need it already have it. This is more for those on the fence, or limping along with the free version.

The calculator app which ships with the iPhone has similar functionality when you rotate the phone...unless I am missing something.

That feature of the calculator app is anything but obvious. Most of us are programmed to hold a calculator upright while keying in data, so it just doesn't occur to us to turn it... Gonna have to try this.
