Completely coincidentally, the very day I decided to have another look at the (limited) range of woodworking based iPhone applications still out there, I had an email from AmbiCalc about their free online calculator tool.  Looked kind of promising, especially some of the attached calculator functions (which I’ve included in a slideshow below – screen shots from their calculator tool)  You access these extra calculators by clicking the wooden “box” button on the calculator itself.

They have some info about how to get it onto your iPhone in its current form (as a web page), but I am more interested in their next development when it becomes available: as a full iPhone application.

From some info they sent through:

It works in any browser and we also offer an offline version for iPhone. Working on an App store version at the moment.

AmbiCalc features:
– you can mix metric/imperial calculations e.g. 1 inch + 2 mm
– it will calculate offsets for making router templates. And if you have an imperial cutter and a metric guide bush it deals with that as above
– calculates cabinet parts dimensions
– diagonal calculator to make sure boards/drawers etc are square
– includes a cubic foot/metre solid wood calculation
