Bristen Calculator Brings Increased Functionality and Great Looks to Arithmetic Problems Everywhere

If you’ve used the stock Android calculator, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that while it has grown to become quite stylish in the latest revisions of Android, its functionality is a tad spartan. Thanks to Android’s “openness,” we certainly have a fair share of replacements available. However, not all of the replacements have as much attention to detail put into the aesthetics.

Now, we no longer have to choose between functionality and style thanks to XDA forum member devein who has created a simple calculator with features beyond what can be found on the stock offering. And with useful planned features such as currency conversion and history sharing, it is only going to get even better in time.

In the words of the developer:

Currently in version 0.91, this is a calculator that tries to replace stock android calculator. Its look and function aims to be simple yet fully effective. Current look is modeled after HTC_ime keyboard.

Features
– Percent calculation
– History panel – display list and restore values
– Vibrating keys
– Prevent sleep feature – keeps display awake

Features planned:
– currency conversion
– easy percent calculation
– history saving&sharing

Let me know – what do you like, what do you dislike, what you see this app needs.

Continue on to the application thread to get started!

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
