Confirmed on Android 4.4.2 phone, but only in RPN mode, I believe same as the original bug.

There's some other mode?

Maybe it is faster than the real Prime?

#1 on my wish list: key clicks! There's currently no feedback when you press a key. On the real calculator, you have tactile feedback. I'd like a small beep when pressing a key on my screen to simulate the snap noise of the real thing.

I must agree, though I prefer haptic feedback. Without this feedback, one must literally look to verify that each keystroke was properly recognized (the issue is exacerbated by the small button size). The API on Android is very simple, however since there is no equivalent on any of the prior paltforms doing so is adding something new to Prime, though I would presume this is in the h/w layer, so should be straighforward? This is standard fare on all phone/tablet based calculators (Free42, go41cx, RealCalc, etc.); we hope this will come in a future update.

Funny thing is, having a click noise on the calculators has generated more complaints for the other applications then anything else! It seems to be a very polarizing feature. :-)

I can understand that. I somtimes turn audible key clicks on or off depending on the environment I am using it in, so it should be optional at least. The best implementations have an adjustable key click volume.

"The only way to do so at this time is either copy and paste (from text somewhere) directly into the emulator. Or else to load the file from the pc to the data folder on the android device. There is no direct connection to the connkit at this point."

Hi Tim,
I'm a complete NOOB to the Android and very used to iOS 'cut, copy and paste' functions, so exactly how does one "paste directly into the emulator"?

I can transfer a txt file from PC to the Android to either the internal storage or an installed SD card, but what is required for the Prime to access the "data folder on the Android device"?
Thanks,
Donal

Is there a touch screen that actually gives you feedback as if there was a mechanical key at that location? I'd go for that!

Many current phones and similar devices use a small metal weight mounted off-center on a (really) tiny motor. When you "press a key" the system runs the motor for a brief time (quarter->half second?) and you can feel the little 'buzz' caused by the out-of balance weight spinning. Given this is real mechanical motion, I'm amazed it doesn't affect battery life more, but it seems to not be a significant driver.

So, to directly answer your questio, no, it doesn't really feel like a true (especially HP) key-press, but the slight buzz gives your finger enough feedback that you can tell you hit the "key".

Try the android program "real calc". My setting for the motor-time ("Button feedback") is 50ms. Just enough to hear it and feel a tiny feedback.

Guessing here, but they probably pulled it while they fix the X^2 bug. Should only be a short while, maybe a couple days

Speaking of which, does anyone have any idea when they will release the next firmware update for the actual Prime?
Thanks.
