Calcbot - The Intelligent Calculator and Unit Converter
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Calcbot is an intelligent calculator and unit converter for the rest of us. Featuring an easy-to-read history tape, expression view, intuitive conversion, and much more!
Every calculation you enter gets saved to the history tape and optionally sent to your clipboard for quick pasting. Refer to calculations later or send them right back to the calculator.
Calcbot’s original expression view allows you to see everything you have typed so you’ll never forget what you entered or miss a typo.
Convert any of your calculations with over 500 units across 22 different categories including auto-updating currency rates.
Fave a calculation and get instant access to its result via the Favorites Key. No more cryptic memory keys.
Calcbot supports common scientific functions in case you ever need them.
Get instant access to scientific constants like Pi, Atomic Mass or add your own.
Round for Currency.
Have all of your results rounded to two decimal places.
Sync your history tape, constants, and faves across multiple Macs and all of your iOS devices.
Sounds & Animations.
Sound effects & animations to provide positive feedback when performing calculations.
What's New in Version 1.0.6
- Fixed a bug where the buttons would have incorrect labels
Only 10 currencies!
The app looks and works great but I still feel duped. The app boasts 500 units across 22 categories but nowhere here or on their website do they mention that they only give you access to 10 out of 180 world currencies. This is makes it mostly useless if you ever plan on converting currencies with it.
No Chinese Yuan, no Singapore Dollar, Thai Baht, or any other asian currency for that matter. No South African Rand or even Indian Rupee.. Seriously? These are all major currencies and if an app claims to provide currency conversions, I expect them to be there (or to be explicitly excluded in the description).
Unfortunately there are two currencies that I regularly need that are not listed so I really have little use for the app now.
Best calculator on the Mac App Store
I don’t ask for much from a calculator app: Scientific calculator functions, infix notation, calculation history (a tape), and the ability to use expressions and results as inputs. This is the only calculator I could find on the Mac App Store that satisfies my needs. It delivers that and more!
can’t easily edit expressions
I was surprised that the expression view isn’t editable. For instance, I would love to be able to select an operand and switch it to something else without deleting and retyping everything up till my mistake. The dots on the division symbol are so tiny I’ve accidentally hit that when I meant minus several times.
