Metalgrass Software has released the Utility Kit and it is available for the Kindle PaperWhite, Kindle Touch, and Kindle 4. It contains seven different applications: calculator, stopwatch, countdown timer, world clocks, calendar, units conversion, and notepad. The author tells me that it was a year in development. It costs $1.99 and can be bought from Amazon, or you can search for Utility Kit directly in the Kindle store on your device.
