Default [APP][2.2+] Floating Calculator with Chat Heads style multitasking

Floating calculator is a simple and elegant calculator app, floating at the front of your screen.

Floating Calculator places a floating bubble on your screen. Just touch the bubble to open the calculator.
You can freely move the calculator bubble, and toss it around the screen.

Like it so far. If it remains ad-free that will definitely give you a leg up over the other popular hovering calculator.

Something I'd like to see is the ability to vary the size, transparency, and location so that figures on screen can be viewed and calculated.

I love this app, but when I press the hide calculator button, or just tap outside of the calculator, it hides as expected, but the bubble doesn't come back. Is anyone else having this issue?

Very nice idea, but what about a gesture option instead of bubble ?
