Recommended: scientific calc
Very nicely done (so now I won't have to write it myself
Supports both algebraic and RPN modes, and has numerous functions. A lot of nice details, such as shadowed text to give it a truly 3-D feel.
Also supports programmer's mode (binary, hex, and octal), etc.
My only beef is that in RPN mode the stack seems to clear sometimes when I don't expect it to. (for example: 4 enter 4 enter + +. I expect the answer to stay on the stack now when I enter new numbers. simple to solve with an enter, of course).

Dude, you rock. At last a real and always available calculator that doesn't make me want to vomit.
My only other suggestion is to have it set a cookie and remember the last mode (particularly if it's RPN - while people might switch back and forth between "base" and "something else," most people who use RPN aren't going to want to start up in algebraic mode.)

yes, and while it's much better than the old one, it's still not a "scientific" calculator the way most people think of it. (For example - no indication of RPN support, programmer's calculations, etc.)
I assume there will be a billion new calculators on the appstore. I'll be writing one myself (RPN) if I don't see any I like; one of the easiest programs to write.

What about Financial?
I'd really like to see a financial calculator. I've always (on both Palm OS and WM) found excellent programs that emulate the industry standby HP 12C financial calculator. My guess is that because the origonal iphone didn't support MS exchange, it wasn't widely used in business circles, so there wasn't much demand for financial calculators. Hopefully that will change soon.
