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.

Why should you use the Floating Calculator?
Floating Calculator gives you a simple and elegant multitasking solution available at the front of your screen.
You don't need to switch back and forth between apps to use the calculator.
Floating Calculator also includes a Google web search - search is only one touch away!

Floating Calculator is based on the Android stock calculator app first appeared in ICS, and is compatible with Android 2.2 and above.

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?

Yup, it happens every time, even after restarting.
Using Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 running AOSPA 4.2 Beta 1
Chatheads and other bubble apps work fine, btw.

Are you by any chance have something on your device that forces immersive mode or anything similar on your device?
If so, when you open the calculator screen, open the bottom left menu, and go to settings.
Switch "Keep bubble available in full-screen mode" to on.

Tell us if that worked for you.
