      Who knows how popular NE Calculator is. Can you write a Windows Phone 8 calculator that doesn't really suck? NEC for Windows Phone 8, the platform Microsoft stupidly abandoned! (Seriously, we need to ... more

        If there's a company out there that hastily looked for a 16-bit DOS calculator application to fit into a legacy "mouse trap" solution that their business runs on that some how found the NEC and... more

            Which unfortunately is the same as my current email address just at a different domain name. So yeah, it's tagged with "shamrice". They'll find their way here if they need to. :) I was actually okay... more
            • Maybe that was it, no Youtube AppPuckdropper, Sat Feb 25 4:40am
              What probably did them in was no "Zelda" class app. Oh, they tried Office (it's great to have a version of office on the phone, even if I do have a spreadsheet that makes it cry), but the honest... more
