The Calculator App on the BlackBerry PlayBook

A simple but very elegant BlackBerry PlayBook tool is the built-in calculator, which can help you balance your checkbook, figure the tip for dinner, perform complex scientific math, or convert from just about any measurement of size, volume, or energy to another.

To switch between the four built-in calculators, swipe down from the top frame or bezel. Then tap one of the following:

  • Standard

  • Scientific

  • Unit Converter

  • Tip Calculator
