    You'll have an icon on the launcher that goes directly to the site. Enter any math problem, conversion question, or anything else WolframAlpha can do and you'll get the answer...!

    Adding to the global search options requires rooting. Sorry.

    You can use this Javascript HP-35 emulator on the Pre. Have to zoom a bit but it works fine. I added it to my launcher.

    hpcalc-iphone - Google Code


    At the very least, some scientific, trig, and higher level math operands would be nice.
    I would really like this. I use my 15+ yo 12c everyday.

    Would this *P**ne app work on the Pre?

    I'd love a 12c on my Pre too! I also miss the Treo calc for weight/length/volume conversions.

    I miss my Megasoft2000 - MegaCalc Classic is not worth it for that...
    Palm History: Palm III>IIIc>CLIÉ NR70v>CLIÉ TG50>Tungsten C>Treo 650>Treo 700p>Centro>Pre!! 6/5/09
    Phone History: Way too long

    Sorry Timmy, SERO does not work with the Pre.

    I use a scientific calculator to calculate projectile trajectories, blast radius, and fallout migration patterns. I don't use my Pre for this, though, as it doesn't get reception 2000 feet underground in my lair.

    You're following this guide, right? If you're still having problems, try the #webos-internals IRC channel on Freenode. But try everything on that page exactly to the letter before you ask for help... The chances are it's a user error, not a specific problem with your Pre.

    Also remember, rooting is not for the feint of heart - you can seriously mess up (brick) your Pre if you don't know what you're doing...

    The calculator is kinda wimpy, yeah. But if you press the spacebar, you'll get a square root, a percentage, a negative symbol, and a memory minus button.

    I wouldn't trade my Pre for anything on the market right now either, but Palm... next time try documenting the features, huh?

    An HP 12C emulator has just been posted to Homebrew.

    My Pre is now officially perfect.
