Hello Les, Yea, V 1.0 had some speed issues. Mainly this is to
compensate for what I believe are bugs in the iPhone event handling.
The upside is that it looks like iPhone OS 3.0 has fixed this.
In V1.0 there are forced pauses while running programs in order for
key handling to work properly. Of course these pauses are a huge
waste of time, but they are necessary to handle an R/S or EXIT key
press, otherwise the Calc is basically locked up.
These pauses have been removed in 2.0, and other enhancements have
been made such as better and smarter display handling. I'm glad to
see the performance increases independently verified, thanks!
