TechniCalc is one of the few calculators that offers a full, great-looking app on iPad rather than just blowing up the iPhone version. I'd have to give it extra points for that alone.

You can download TechniCalc from the App Store (opens in new tab) right now. It's priced at $7.99. From what I've seen – and understood! – the app looks to be worth every penny.
