Calcu, a Really Good Looking Calculator App
We’ve reviewed quite a few applications over the years on the XDA Portal. If you wanted to try and count them all, you’d easily lose track. But XDA Portal articles aren’t the only things you can keep track of with a good calculator application. Smartphones seem to be a perfect replacement for a traditional calculator, hence why we see countless calculator apps. One of these applications is Calcu by XDA Forum Member candlapps.
What makes Calcu special? The application is simply beautiful, with 12 themes available to apply. However, a nice interface isn’t the only noticeable thing in this application. Calculations are performed on-the-fly, which makes the application very fast to use. The calculator also stores the results of recent calculations, and they can also be shared with friends.
Calcu isn’t only a simple calculator. Advanced functions also are available, and can even be freely customized. A good looking user interface and variety of functions make Calcu one of the most interesting calculator apps on the platform.
A calculator like Calcu is definitely a worthy addition to your application drawer. Calcu can be downloaded from the application thread.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
