It all adds up: Google Calculator hits Google Play Store

It all adds up: Google Calculator hits Google Play Store
The multi-functional Google Calculator is now available in the Google Play Store. The app will do all of the basic math like addition, subtraction, multiplying and division. And if you have more complex problems to be solved, putting the phone into landscape mode will turn the calculator into a scientific calculator with buttons for sine, cosine, tangent, logarithm and pi.

The scientific calculator function is also available with the phone in portrait by swiping to the left. A panel will slide out containing all of the buttons required for more complex computations. And yes, the app does support Android Wear.

If you're unhappy with the calculator that comes on your Android phone, you can always install the official Google Calculator from the Google Play Store. And you won't need a calculator to figure out how much it will cost you since the app is free.

To install the Google Calculator simply click on the sourcelink below.

google is not the only one. Apple still does not have, even at this date, a calculator for iPad... you know, the device they boast is "designed for productivity"... SMH LOLZ!

Finally!!! I love how Google has modulized Android, seriously man just extract every single app and put it on the play store. Hopefully Oems do the same. Some have already done so.

Why would you want this? THere's no 'C' / Reset button. TO delete the screen, you either have to tap (backspace) all the numbers, or hold down the 'DEL' button... It's a POS and I've replaced mine.

See, what people don't realize is that a lot of android apps are in the app store. Google Calendar, Clock, Camera, Calculator, Keep(notes), Maps, phone, messenger(sms), fit(health), Keyboard, browser(chrome), android pay, google now(voice assistant), news, drive(cloud), wear(smartwatch), etc.. So yeah android might have slow updates to next android version, but all of those app are updated at least monthly. HTC is slowly adding their stock apps in the play store as well. So compared to an iOS update, stock android apps get updated more often from app store. Can some one tell me what differences iOS 9 has from iOS 8 on iphones? Besides updates to their stock apps?
