    I hadn't thought of slide rule programs (apps) for I phones or other "smart phones", possibly because I don't have any till you mentioned same. Having said that, I'm less than surprised that there seem to be many, many of the things, I googled slide rule app., and they seem to go on and on. A bunch at Internet Explorer too, likely the same ones.

    I did not look closely at the programs themselves, but wonder as to what sort of slide rules (log log deci trig)??? they cover. Perhaps one of these days I will acquire an I phone or other form of "smart phone", thereby perhaps catching up a little, with the 21st century. Meanwhile, I await the arrival of a K & E 4080-3 I purchased via ebay. I haven't so much a looked at a slide rule in close to 50 years. Smoley's Tables were, in their day, quite handy.
