    I've downloaded two iPad calculators now and can't figure out how to do percentage on them.
    Anybody have a good calculator app that does percentage, preferably a free app :)

    Well, it's not free (costs $.99, USD) - but "Calculator LCD" is a nice, basic calculator that has the percent key. I like it because it takes up the whole screen, making it easy to tap the buttons.

    Again, not free, but maybe worth a look?

    It's not to everyone's taste but I quite like MyScript Calculator and it does percentages.

    Or you can simply remember that percent (per 100, 100 centimeters in a meter, one hundred cents in a dollar) is a relatively simple math concept. Ten percent, for example is 10 per 100, or 10/100, or .10.

    If one cares not to understand the math, simply move the decimal point two places to the left so that 6.5% becomes .065 and multiply this and your base number to get your answer.

    For example 6.5% sales tax on $49.50 is .065 x $49.5 = $3.22.

    I have no use for a percent key. I find it easier to remember the math concept than how to use a dedicated percent key.

    Calculator+ does percentages and it's also free.
