    1) where's the 'clock' app? how do i now set stopwatches? count downs? world times? and more importantly, alarms and notifications?

    2) where's the calculator app? ok, i can do without this, but i was used to the standard calculator app and used it a lot.

    can anyone suggest a really good FREE calculator? preferably something very similar in style and feel to the original?

    thanks

    1) Timer+ can be used for countdowns and is free
    Alarm Clock Pro can be used for alarms. There are many with similar names, the one I mean has an icon set to 8:02, or 7:30
    2) There are free calculators, but a clever move would be to watch AppShopper until one of the paid ones are sold for free. I got several ones that way. But by far the best one I came across is Digits Calculator for iPad, as it keeps an editable history, you could try the Digits Calculator Lite version first.
    Otherwise: CalculatorBox

    I have no idea what you mean by original, considering the iPad doesn't come with a calculator, so these suggestions may not be what you expect.

    Can I recommend the Big Calculator app. Worth every penny.
    What I particularly like is the tape function to one side so you can see a history of your calculations and of course the big buttons for big fingers :)

    If you're a geek and need a scientific calculator then PCalc is the one. Has every imaginable function - and then some. You can even change the display style from a retro 7-segment style to an easier-to-read style. And you can make it behave like an HP calculator too - reverse Polish logic, no problem. Plus all the 'usual' physical constants, just in case you happen to need Planck's constant or the mass of an electron...

    Can also do calculations in hex, octal and binary and has a tape function too (that you can email). Plus - and this is the absolute geek selling point - it has a function called 'the ultimate answer' which, of course, we all know is '42'.

    Removing those "widgets" was perhaps the dumbest thing Apple has done with the iPad. The clock and the calculator especially. They were light, easy to launch Apps, ad most of their interface could have been upscaled easily.

    I also miss the "Stocks" widget from the iPhone. Look at the news updates frequently. Anyone have a good replacement?
