TiPb Give Away: PCalc Wants Your Input -- Has 30 Promo Codes to Prove It!

PCalc [$9.99 - iTunes link] has 30 promo codes to give away to TiPb readers willing to help them out with a little survey. Here's the thing: since "free apps no longer have to stay free", and in-app purchases are now available to everyone, they're interested in knowing just which in-app purchasable features interest YOU.

Ready? Here's what you need to do:

  • Download the free version of PCalc Lite [iTunes link]
  • Try it.
  • Rank the following features from the full version that you'd like to see made available as in-app purchases, in order of preference:
    1. More keyboard layouts with additional functions aimed at engineers and programmers.
    2. More themes, digit styles, and key click sounds.
    3. More unit conversions and constants.
    4. A virtual paper tape and display of memory registers.
    5. More advanced settings for controlling things like number of decimal places shown, thousands separators.
    6. Hex / octal / binary mode.
    7. Multi-line display and multiple memory support.
    8. A coupon code to save $9 on PCalc for Mac OS X.
  • Suggest one cool new calculating feature they've inexplicably forgotten to include so far (real or fantastic).
  • Email your feature ranking and new feature suggestion to survey[at]dragthing[dot]com
  • Best suggestions received in the next 24 hours will get a promo code for the full version of PCalc in return. (US App Store only -- Apple's rules, not ours.)

Here's what a sample entry would look like:
