If you use iOS’ built-in scientific calculator (accessed by turning the Calculator application into landscape mode) a lot and get tired of the application accidentally switching to portrait mode and revealing the basic calculator, then a new free jailbreak tweak called LandscapeCalc by iOS developer Julian Weiss is for you.

LandscapeCalc will lock the Calculator application into landscape position whenever you turn the Calculator application into landscape mode. This means that if you’re using the scientific calculator, there will be no way to switch back to the basic calculator without exiting the application, closing it from the App Swticher, and then re-launching it, which eliminates the orientation mistakes that many people get annoyed by.

Because the scientific calculator carries most (if not all) of the same functions as the basic calculator, there are no worries about getting locked into landscape mode by mistake, so the tweak offers next to no drawbacks.

LandscapeCalc doesn’t come with any options to configure, as it’s a simple tweak aiming to make everyone’s lives easier. You can grab the tweak for free right now from Cydia’s BigBoss repository.
