    I noticed that when using the stock calculator app that there is a "Rad" icon in landscape mode. What is this and how do I remove it?

    Have you ever heard of google?

    It's used for Radiens. And why would you want to remove it? It's not hurting you.

    Radians. Used in all sorts of technical calculations. It's an angular measurement analogous to degrees. 2pi radians = 360 degrees.

    To remove it: turn your iDevice to portrait mode. ;)

    Or you can make it say degree.

    To the other angry at the world guy, you need to relax a little.

    I'm not angry at the world. I just don't understand what the Rad button is hurting?

    Unless you are making angle dependent calculations (Degrees, Radians, Gradians) it won't matter.
