And icons are a biggie for me. Yours (and this is constructive) appears like a cutoff picture as opposed to an icon specifically for the phone. My background is mainly front-end design, hence the pickiness there.
The icon is the weakest link in my app for sure. It's the one bit that I put the least thought in. It will change before the app hits release status.

I have the same background like you do by the way

Finally: RPN calculators only SEEM complex to people who have never used them. I had the same feeling when I was given one for the first time by my dad, a long long time ago. Once you get the hang of it you'll never go back to a normal calculator, no matter whether you're a geek or not
