A little bit of personality, not where you’d expect it

I’m a fan and a evangelist for bringing brand personality and great tone of voice into every little touch point that you have with your customers. I was in our Calculator application today as was looking to convert some numbers and noticed a beautiful little touch in the bottom corner.

As well as converting the measures that I asked it to, it adds a bit of personality by also telling me what my 100 teaspoons would equal in tea cups.

Increase the volume to 100,000 and it tells me how many bathtubs along with a nice little bathtub icon.

Nice. Touch.
