Rechner Calculator iPhone App: Gestural Arithmetic
This cool little calculator app for the iPhone uses gestures, kind of like how Clear works. It’s definitely an interesting way to use a calculator, one that initially seems a bit counterintuitive, but ultimately it’s supposed to be a bit faster than punching in numbers with your fingers.
