    Something so trivial actually renders the whole app useless to me, ah well I usually carry my torch along..

    Rotate the phone - it was pointed out to me by actually an apple user.

    You get the full a scientific calculator in landscape mode.

    I'm not sure what you need a percentage sign for though... 1% = 0.01

    Well...the tip calculator is one, big, % function.

    That is the same with the Galaxy S3 calculator - No percentage key unless you are landscape mode.

    By the way, this is where the touchscreen really beats a physical keyboard in my opinion. With the large buttons, I usually use my calculator with my left hand and keep writing with my right.

    The % got removed on the PlayBook a few updates back. There was a big discussion about it being wrong in the results.

    To find the percentage of a number :

    Example: find 10% of 100

    100 * 0.10 = 10%

    Example: find 110% of 100

    100 * 1.10 = 110%

    Example : find the percentage of a number from another number

    (3/ 4) * 100 = 75%

    Not ideal, but hope that helps

    ok that baffles me, I rarely ever use a calculator (i'm pretty good at math in the head lol) but i checked it out myself and sure enough, unless you go into the tip calculator, no % sign...

    For those of you looking for percent- in calculator, swipe down from the top - Tip Calculator, and unit converter as well as standard calculator. Found this as I was playing with it reading this thread.
    also, while in landscape you get a scientific calculator as well as the unit conversion and tip calculator. There is no actual % button tho. But the tip calculator is really quite convenient.

    Maybe they suspect BB users are smart enough to know how to calculate without percentages done for them

    I come from a time when we weren't ALLOWED calculators in school. I definitely use mine when I don't feel like doing math in my head though, to figure out tax and such...

    That being said.... BB is one step up if they have the % key in landscape.. my Galaxy Nexus calculator doesn't have a % button even in landscape mode...

    Just use 1.13 for 13% or 1.50 for 50%

    So easy for example: 90.00 *1.13 = xxxxx

    Just use what ever percentage you want after 1. And times it or add or divide or minus.

    I don't think I've ever used a % button on any calculator in my life. But I suppose it ought to be there for those that don't like decimals, and to avoid complaints like this.

    You do realize that to make something a % all you do is move the decimal 2 places right...like 15% is 0.15...all it did was move the decimal for you, kind of a useless button IMO...but maybe that is just me.

    Honestly, I have never used the percent key, I always use decimals… never trusted that percent key… example, to find 15% of something you times by 0.15, to add 15% you times by 1.15, to subtract you divide…

    All it does is move the decimal point....you type in 25 on the screen, push the % button and it turns it into .25...that is it...

    And one needs a percent sign for that? ...

    Having said that, I cannot see a percent sign on my TI-89 either... it possibly exists somewhere, but not on the keyboard.

    The scientific calculator on the playbook is amazing - I hope they will port it over at some point.
