Any good RPN calc for smartphones?

I'm looking for a RPN calc which runs on Windows Mobile smartphones.

Thanks.

Me too.

This is what I have been able to find:

This only works with Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC (stylus-based):

This works with Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone, but the user experience is lacking. I have had key binding issues with my Blackjack.

On my list of things to do is to port emu48, free42, or nonpareil to my phone. I have the SDK, but I have had no time.

I have the Blackjack, too. How usable is it on the Blackjack with the key binding troubles? I would actually settle for even a very simple RPN calc with a stack. The built-in calc is terrible.

It is usable with the positional keys. You can use it 20 times before you have to pay. Try it out.

How are smartphones different from Pocket PCs? Is it just the smaller screen size, or are there major APIs missing?


(I guess I shouldn't be asking these questions; I have eVC++ which includes the smartphone SDK, but still, I don't want to catch malaria exploring Terra Incognita if someone else already has.)

The first two work fine on my XV6700 with Windows Mobile 5. What's the issue with the Blackjack? There's also ev41 if you want a capable 41CX emulator.

emu48 for Pocket PC is annoyingly spread out in chunks across several downloads from hpcalc.org. What worked for me was to install this one for emu48.exe, mkshared.exe, the icon and program directory, then this one for beep.4[89], keyboard.kmi and some kml scripts. Then I dropped the 48g and 49g roms into \Program Files\emu48 and it all worked. I still don't have a nice vertical KML, but I'm sure they exist somewhere on hpcalc.org.

Howard

The XV6700 is WM5 Pocket PC, the Blackjack is WM5 Smartphone. The interfaces are a bit different. One major difference is stylus vs keyboard only. Bottomline smartphone will not exec most PPC apps.
