The reason it lags is because of this (possible) assumption. The application needs full network access in order to work. Which means the dev probably just created a linked web app.

How this works? You create an app with no actionbar and remove the controls. In the code direct the app to a URL with WebView and give it internet permissions in your Manifest.

Outcome - You get an app the automatically redirects to a URL that was in the code, in other means. The URL for the Polymer Calculator example.

Anyways, its still nice though.

You're 100% right. This is literally a web view with a hidden action bar.

nice looking calculator but i'm still disappointed that no one has created a simple looking calculator app that shows a history of the last 2-3 calculations without having to press some sort of "history" button.

Calculator It's an Webview app....
It's not possible to install the with the new material design on 4.x.x. That's because the API that they used for the Original Calculator app does not support android versions under L (5.0). Even if you edit in Build.prop...

Btw, how'd you converted the polymer based web app into an .apk? can you provide some details/tut on how to do that if it does not bothers you? just for our project on school, hehe thank you!

EDIT
Oh ok so this is supposedly a webview app, hearing more details would be nice. Thanks!
