This is the calculator I use all the time
I’ve tried any number of different calculator apps for Mac. This is the one that I pretty much leave open all the time. It is quick, easy, well-designed and remarkably powerful.
Obviously the biggest feature is that you type in what you want to calculate instead of dealing with some monstrasity that simulates a hand held calculator. This app builds on this big design choice to make it easy to copy results out of it. It’s small things like that which make this the hands down best and quickest way to perform most calculations. It is deceptively simple.
There are some features that I use that probably are not of so much interest for others. For example, I use the “@“ XOR operator. I also like how easy it is to calculate logs in the base of my choice without me having to define my own conversion functions.
For the few times when I need graphing or fully programmability, I use other things. But ConsoleCalc is something that I use many times a day, every day.
I love this app, but fix pound to newton conversion
I love this app. It is the easiest way quickly handle calculations on a computer. I like the new unit conversion feature. Only one thing that drives me crazy as a physics teacher: It allows conversion between pounds and kilograms and does not allow conversion between pounds and newtons. This is completely backwards. Both pounds and newtons are measures of force and you should be able to convert between them. Pounds and kilograms measure fundamentally different things. Kilograms measure mass. While it is convenient to convert between them in some instances it is really not correct. I don’t mind allowing pound to kilogram conversion if everyone else wants to live in blissfull ignorance, but could you at least make it so that you don’t get an error when converting between pounds and newtons? Just my two cents.
Pretty cool - Add Multi-Windows
I just bought this app, so I haven’t tried everything yet. The tutorial shows off a number of pretty impressive features that I imagine will be pretty useful to a programmer.
If you’re still interested in adding features, please add multiple windows so I can calculate separate things in parallel.
