    Suppose it depends on how much you use your ph. I only make calls on mine and occasional torch use. I would put it on charge of max 3 times a fortnight. And no car battery.

    2%/hr would nearly drain it in 2 days withought anything else. I don't understand why some apps have to run in the background. If you turn it off it should be completely off or am I missing something.

    I look forward to the iOS update version. It would be nice if one could copy from the calculator output into other entry boxes. For example, if I calculate a chip load by dividing an endmill diameter by a constant, it would be handy to be able to paste that result into the milling calculator IPT box. Also, I noticed the current calculator result goes away if I go to another window and back. It would be great if it stayed in memory. How about adding basic minor thread diameters for internal and external threads?

    In any event, thanks for the app!

    Just a cheesy plug but....I've been working on my own versions of a machinist calculator. The biggest "feature" I have in mine is infixed notation. i.e., you can just type out 3*5(3^2)/pi and get the right result. (it does the Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally for you) The original also has a few triangle solvers, (from ASA, SAS, SSS or three points) They are open source, but you will have to build them yourself, I'm not paying to put them in the app store. (In iOS9, you can build your own apps to your own phone, without paying for a developer account, it just takes an intel Mac, an iPhone 4s or latter, and the latest version of xCode, free in the Mac App store)

    I have the original Objective-C version.

    And a version I am refactoring in Swift.

    Enjoy if you will, I'll gladly accept your pull requests if you make any improvements.

    Thanks rklopp! I posted the updated iOS apps to iTunes on October 2nd. If all goes well, they should be approved by the 11th. I will look into these ideas. I appreciate the feedback.

This allowed the user to zoom into any screen by triple tapping. Once I unchecked this option in the settings, the problem went away. Does your Samsung Note have a similar option enabled?

    Thank you for the feedback,

    Nothing special is set in "Accessibility" and none of my other apps need such an aggressive button press. I'm at version 11 of the free app, which is the latest, I assume. Seems like it updated to that a few days ago.

    Looks like a nice app, but is essentially useless for me with the buttons working as they do.
