Calcbot arrives for your iPhone and iPad

Tapbots, the developers behind the ultra handy and well designed Pastebot — Command Copy & Paste and Convertbot apps, have just released another useful utility – this time in the form of Calcbot. Aimed at replacing the stock calculator app, Calcbot is universal app that works on all iDevices and features:

  • Beautiful, yet simple user interface that comes to life with finely machined animation and sound
  • Advanced functions accessible via the innovative SwipePad
  • Live as-you-type expression history so you never forget what you entered last
  • Calculation history tape that also shows the expression used
  • Email your history as text or send values and expressions back the calculator
  • Retina display support
  • Fast app switching

Having played around with Calcbot for the past 15 minutes, I’m definitely digging the clean interface and how the history tape can accessed simply by swiping upwards (iPhone). On the iPad, it’s always visible to the right thanks to the extra screen space. To view the advanced functions, a left swipe of the screen will slide over a new set of keys. As long as you’re not looking to solve advanced formulas and simple math calculations will suffice, Taptobs’ latest offering will serve its purpose very well. If you’re looking for a calculator app that looks great and is “fun” to use, I highly recommend you take a good look at Calcbot. It’s currently on sale for $0.99. Demo video after the gap…

Convertbot now FREE for a limited time

convertbot_previewFor many, some of the most useful apps on the iDevice are ones that convert one form of measurement/unit into another. If you’re one of these users, then this post will definitely be of interest to you. Convertbot, a conversion app developed by Tapbots, is now FREE for a limited time. Long considered one of the best in the genre, Convertbot offers a unique and user friendly interface while supporting more than 400 units for conversion.

Convertbot is a unit conversion robot. Convert currency, length, mass, time and much more in an exciting new way! Converting numbers will never again be a mundane task. In addition to its innovative interface, our robot is smart enough to convert to and from mixed units. Are you 5 foot 9 inches tall? Other converters require you to convert that to 5.75 ft in your head before being able to enter it. Convertbot allows mixed units like Foot + Inches, Pounds + Ounces, and more!

At its current price (FREE), Convertbot could be that indispensable app all users should have on their iDevice. Hurry though, as the developer has stated that it will only last for a very limited time.
