New CALCULATOR App by 7 Dragons - creators of Notepad
7 Dragons created the very popular Notepad, my favorite Kindle app, which I use daily, and Converter, which is very useful.
Now they've released their Calculator for the Kindle. $0.99
It's a very flexible calculator, useful for computing sales discounts, double-checking an invoice, or computing a restaurant tip. If your Kindle is usually with you, outside, the calculator will be available too.
From the Product Description (emphases mine): "In addition to basic math operations, Calculator also includes Square Roots, percentages and exponents, and the trigonometric functions Sine, Cosine, and Tangent. You have standard calculator Memory Functions, and you also get Calculator History; in which the last 10 items and last 10 calculation results are saved for later reference. [Very nice!]
Calculator offers keyboard shortcuts to help you work quickly, and a last function undo and digit by digit undo functions to help you correct errors. Help pages explain each feature, and a Shortcuts List page clearly lists all shortcuts."

An example: Ballad of a Thin Man on the album (which is maybe more popular than Like a Rolling Stone).
