Tapbots has just added another beautifully designed utility app to their line of "bot" apps titled Calcbot, only this time they went the distance and made it universal, a first for the developer. Calcbot is a fairly basic calculator app compared to the more full-fledged ones out there like PCalc, but if you aren't in need of a laundry list of functions, you will be more than pleased with Tapbots' latest creation thanks to its ease of use and clean interface. The app features a "live as-you-type" expression view so you will never forget what has been inputted. If you turn your iPad sideways or swipe down on the screen on your iPhone, a history tape will be revealed, allowing you to track your progress, copy calculations and send them to friends via email. The basic four-function calculator keyboard can be replaced with a more advanced one by swiping your finger from right to left. As with all of Tapbots' apps, Calcbot features all kinds of little graphical and audio touches to set it apart from the rest. It also features fast app switching and Retina display support for those who can utilize it. Calcbot is now available in the App Store for $.99, a limited time introductory price.
