I am working on a calculator app for iOS. I would like to know what an acceptable 'Append' symbol / Icon would be - would it be a downward pointing arrow? A curved arrow?

Anything helps,

Hi, I'm afraid that icon request topics are of topic for this site, as outlined in our FAQ. – JonW Feb 10 '13 at 9:40
@JonW Where could I ask it? – Undo Feb 10 '13 at 15:24
@Erway, the question has some merit in my opinion. It's best to rephrase the question to request examples of the symbol. – kineticfocus Feb 12 '13 at 3:37

You could try an I beam cursor with a curved downward arrow ... and maybe an underscore. This would work for an append/prepend.
