Best Calculator App, Period.

Logan500

This thing is the Disneyland of calculator apps. The developer is a genius. Every feature you could possibly want, or might one day in the future discover you want, is in here. But none of that vast array of features results in any unnecessary complexity. PCalc is totally user customizable, enabling you to create just the feature set and look and feel that you desire.

Also, every other calc app I have tried has either lagged or mis-registered touches, but PCalc is smooth as silk, which is crucial for a calculator. I never thought I would even review, much less rave about a calculator app, but not only does PCalc work like a dream, but it has such incredible attention to detail and customizability that it's actually a ton of fun just to play around with the endless variations.

But wait, there's more. As if this thing couldn't possibly get any better, in the latest version the developer has added what can only be described as a 3-D graphics wonderland as a hidden bonus. Simply tap the "i" key, then "Help", then "About PCalc" and prepare to be amazed. You just have to try it; I don't want to spoil the surprise.

Sure, there are lots of calculators...

... But none like this! Pcalc has been around for a long, long time and is available on both iOS and macOS. However, the iOS version seems to be getting most of the love from the very talented author, and that's okay by me: I'm more likely to have an iOS device handy these days and I now find excuses to use this attractive and powerful app. I use it daily for various units conversions and general calculating.

I fell in love as soon as I discovered it had an RPN mode. Easily mastered, RPN is intuitive and eliminates any ambiguity over operator precedence in complex calculations. My nearly 40 year-old HP calculator still sits in a lonely drawer; I'd rather use Pcalc, now.

If you have an iPad Pro, the latest release has a delightful Easter egg that demonstrates the considerable computing and graphics power, while allowing the author to show off his programming chops. As an old-timer, I'm impressed!

The best calculator for iOS period.

I originally bought and updated the light version to get all the functionality. When I got a chance I also bought the full version since I hated the app showing the ‘lite’ version on my phone. Hey the developer has to eat too! This is my goto calculator period. Does everything and more. It also is the best functioning Apple Watch calculator. Buy it! The developer is great, responsive and updates frequently!
