Google's new Calculator for Chrome OS is being touted as ideal for iPads as well
iPads are often regarded as tablets for work at least as much as for fun by many consumers. However, despite this, Apple has never released a native Calculator app for its hallmark slates, not even the Pro variants. Many enthusiasts expected this to change with the advent of the dedicated OS for the form-factor; however, it has been several years, and the facility remains absent.
Google has now (however inadvertently) superseded Apple in providing this service with its own latest Calculator app. As the address that leads to it (https://calculator.apps.chrome/) suggests, it is intended for this OEM's own PC OS, devices, and, as such, has quite Android/Chrome-like design elements and animations.
However, it also has cross-platform compatibility by default. This is because it is a web app - which does imply the slight drawback that one has to be online to get it on one's device in the first place. However, it could act as a new calculator on a user's iPad thereafter. Perhaps Google's latest one-up is what will finally induce Apple to develop a first-party replacement once and for all.
