Smartphone Tip: This Thing Is A Calculator, Too!

Monday, February 27th, 2017 by | Filed Under: Android, iOS, Smartphones

This is going to seem like old news to anyone who has used a smartphone for any period of time, but there are still a lot of folks out there who are new to these amazing devices. So, I thought I’d pass along this handy bit of information about your phone. Did you know it’s also a handy pocket calculator?

It may already be displayed on your home screen, but if it’s not front and center, you’ll find it among your apps.


Tap it and a familiar calculator screen will open.

If you don’t want to bother opening the app, you can also use either Google Voice or Siri and just ask them the math problem? Just say “Hey Google, what’s 15% or $32.50?” or “Siri, what’s 175 times 12?”  Your digital assistant will do the work for you.
