15-Jan-2016 An update for Android BoardCalc is in progress, coming soon.
10-Feb-2014 Android SawlogCalc v3.1.0 released. The table version of the Scribner Decimal C log rule has been added (formerly only had the formula version). A new custom species list has been added where you can enter your own species names and densities. Fixed an odd bug that lost the value of the log serial number if SawlogCalc was started up with two or more tallies saved. Changed layout so that a 7" tablet comes up with three panes rather than two in screen size "auto".
17-Dec-2013 The Palm and Windows versions of BoardCalc are no longer for sale. There just isn't much interest in these any more. They will continue to be available to anyone who has already purchased them, of course, and the web pages for them will remain to make downloads available.
3-Dec-2013 Android BoardCalc v3.0.13 released. Fixed layout for tablets to display correctly in portrait orientation for 7" tablets. Fixed fractions to display symmetrically above and below fraction bar on all devices. Fixed a problem with screen size Small in landscape orientation where a long press on any of the right five memory registers would cause a force close. Rounding a fraction or changing the number of decimal places displayed will now go into recent history. Results in recent history also now show rounding. Added font size 22 (new largest font) to recent history and help. Fixed settings: recent history font size so that changing the font size of recent history from settings would kick in immediately when the recent history pane is showing.
25-Jan-2013 Android SawlogCalc v3.0.2 released. Fixed screen table entries to fix 5" displays. Portrait and Landscape were reversed, rendering both unusable. Added 'undelete' to the Tally List screen. Any deleted tally can be recovered for the next hour of app run time. Log serial numbers have been changed: a new number higher than all others will only be generated when a new tally is created (it used to happen every time the sawlog page was brought up). Fixed text display in buttons of sawlog on small screens, no longer mangled.
19-Dec-2012 Android BoardCalc v3.0.11 released. Changed the calculator display to reduce the size of text if a result is too long to fit in the display. Text size while entering parts of a calculation will still be full size and can run off the left side of the screen, but the result after pressing '=' will always be completely visible.
1-Dec-2012 Android BoardCalc v3.0.10 released. Layouts on single screens changed to fill all available space. Title bar now shows up on all but smallest devices. Monthly licensing checks removed from paid version.
20-Nov-2012 Android Sawlog Calc v3.0.1 released to Google Play, in free and paid versions. Details at Android Sawlog Calc
3-June-2012 Android Boardcalc v3.0.9 released. Added an option to choose what a whole number with no fraction or decimal point is taken as: fraction or decimal. Fixed a bug where entering a number with a decimal point and nothing following would result in a display overflow. Extended the table of prime numbers used to reduce fractions up to 127, so that metric fractions would reduce all the way properly.
10-Apr-2012 Android BoardCalc v3.0.8 released. This version adds a screen size for 5" tablets, and fixes two bugs: rounding of fractions not working after changing Audible or Screen size settings, and scrolling finger off of lowest half of lowest memory register into blank space causing Force Close.
21-Mar-2013 An Android® version of the Calculator was released to Google Play. It supports Android 2.1 and above, on any device with a touch screen 2.8" or larger (including tablets). This is an updated version of the general-purpose calculator from the Palm/Windows suite. The log weight calculator is under construction, release in summer of 2012. More: Android BoardCalc
