PCalc - The Best Calculator
By TLA Systems Ltd.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
PCalc is the powerful choice for scientists, engineers, students, programmers, or indeed anybody looking for a feature rich calculator. It includes an optional RPN mode and multi-line display, a choice of button layouts, an extensive set of unit conversions and constants, a paper tape, multiple undo and redo, engineering and scientific notation, as well as support for hexadecimal, octal, and binary calculations.
What's New in Version 3.4.1
Added support for dictating numbers and simple calculations into the Apple Watch app - just tap the display.
Added an ellipsis to the tip calculator on the Apple Watch app, to better hint that tapping the result will cycle through different values.
You can now paste simple calculations into PCalc.
Fixed a problem with the button layout of the Apple Watch app when bold text was switched on in the watch settings.
Fixed a problem with copying from the tape in a custom layout.
Great Calc, needs 1 thing
For those of us who prefer an RPN calculator, this one has been one of the best. The only thing it desperately needs is when we make a mistake, it would be nice if it had the option to report an error such as "too few arguments" like a regular RPN calculator does.
We need a notice when we make an error so we don't keep going, but the vibrate is awful. I know we can shut the vibrate off, but then there isn't a good error notice to alert us and recheck our work. Please include an option for an error message in place of the vibrate.
I've been using this program for a long time. It's not only a calculator, it's also a mathematical reference library filled with useful information.
But today, after all those months, I had a question about the program. Within a couple minutes I had an answer, one that was not only quick but also accurate and helpful.
That's why I type these words. It's a good program with great support service!
Top of the line. Worth your money
Some of my uses: : color (hex) schemes; mortgage calculator. James Thomson at TLA does a great job.
PCalc is my choice of ALL third party apps—for both iOS and MacOS. It was the first one I sought, and if I could have only one, PCalc would be it. 15 stars. No kidding.
PCalc is nearly the equal if my old (still running) Radio Shack EC-4075 Programmer’s Hex and Time Calculator. Which is high praise. (PCalc doesn’t do time calculations.😉)
