Recommendations for DoF calc for ipad

I've been looking at various depth of field calculators for the ipad and some are free while others cost a good bit. Does anyone have recommendations for a good one that won't break the bank? Thanks.

You have an SLR. It is far better than a DOF calculator. Use the preview lever either for optical or chimp display. Heck with digital just shoot the picture and review it. DOF calculators make sense for rangefinders where you cannot see through the lens.

Why do you want a DOF calculator?

If you need one I can point out the math or show you free websites.

The lcd is small on the K5 and I'd like to try some landscapes, which would be entirely new for me, so I'd like to calculate the hyperfocal distance for my modern lenses that lack the scales on the lens.
