Retail Math Apps???

I think it must be a sign of my age that I was truly surprised when I came across a retail math app for my Droid phone.  My first thought was “why?”

Don’t get me wrong, I love my smartphone and it has many apps that I use on a regular basis.  I just didn’t see how a retail math app would be helpful.  After all, isn’t the hard part of retail math knowing when to use the formula and how to apply the results?  Then again, it would probably be a lot simpler to use one of these apps than to have to constantly refer to my cheatsheet to remember all of the formulas.

A brief search for retail math apps on Droid gave me the three results listed below.  If I missed any, please let me know and I’ll add them to the listing.  Or, if you have an iPhone and know of any apps for that device, please let me know and I’ll start a listing for iPhone.

Also, if you have used a retail math app, I would love to hear your opinion of it.

(Please note that I am not endorsing any of these apps.  I have not used any of them and do not know how thorough their coverage is, or how well they work, or basically anything about them.)
