Question Scientific Calculator, RPN

Please Login to Remove!

I would love to find a scientific calculator application for my BB8700, especially one that allows reverse-polish-notation (RPN) entry, something like an HP 32S / 42S etc... is there something available?

The calculator app that comes with the 8700 is okay for basic stuff, but there are no trigonometric, exponential, or other useful functions... and its precision is very limited... try entering anything beyond 99 million... to enter 128 million, you need to enter 12.8 million, then multiply by 10.

Default Still in Beta?

I was looking for exactly the same thing and one of the users in this forum, patrickh, sent me an app he was working on about 7 months ago. It works well, some minor display inconsistecies, but I never heard from him again. Anyway, I have it on my BB and it is the only caculator I use due to the RPN. Patrickh, if you're out there, any update for us?

I've got a bunch of engineers here that would be giddy to get a decent RPN calculator on their blackberries. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

There are some free tools out there, guys! Check out this one http://www.bradgoodman.com/blackberry/ -- scientific calculator, engineering calcuator, triginometric calculator - and more! so far the best though not 100% user-friendly.

Default RPN calculator

I've been searching for an RPN calculator (preferably one that feels like one of the HP models). How can I obtain/purchase a copy?

BTW, I currently use Bizmathica from ShrunkenHead Software and it works fine...does financial math as well as trig, etc., however it is not RPN.

PM me for beta of my RPN calculator.. It's a scientific / engineering / programmer's calculator rather than financial.
