New Features And Tweaks Added To Gesture-Based Calculator App Cali
Cali has received its first major update, just over a week after its release on iOS. Cali is a simple calculator app that's decidedly gesture-based. While it does provide buttons for numbers, the decimal point, and the equal sign, buttons for the four basic mathematical operations are nowhere to be seen in Cali's keypad. Instead, Cali lets you swipe up to add, down to subtract, right to multiply, and left to divide. As mentioned, Cali has just been issued its first major update. And with this update, the app has gained several improvements of note, most of which bring its functions into parity with those of typical calculators. First off, thanks to the update, hitting the equal button multiple times after a calculation effectively repeats the calculation with the new answer.

The update also adds a settings panel, accessible through the More button, and a toggle for sound. Furthermore, the new Cali update introduces four new blue, green, pink and yellow themes inspired, of course, by the color options of the iPhone 5c. It also brings a more colorful app icon with a nod to the almighty π to boot. The new version of Cali is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $0.99 download. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later.
