Calq is an easy to use, on demand calculator. The idea behind Calq is to have a calculator handy when you need it do some basic calculations quickly. It's there when you need it, and it's not in the way when you don't need it.

What's New

Version 1.4.6 adds the option to have decimal and thousand separators that overrule the system wide country settings.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later

I've been using this for years, and just realized I haven't taken the time to praise it publicly yet. It stays out of the way until I need it, but is immediately ready when I hit the hotkey for it. I use it several times a day without even thinking about it -- perfect productivity enhancement for OS X! Still can't believe it's free.

Awesome program. This program is one of the defaults that I install and configure on every computer I own.

Not in Mac OS 10.4. Only in Mac OS 10.5.

So much easier than the dashboard calculator!

Always available when you need it. A keystroke to bring it up and then type in the calculations you need done (as opposed to the dashboard - keystroke, wait, use the mouse to make sure calculator is selected, then use the keyboard or mouse to type the calculation in).

It can also do a few more advanced calculations (trig, logs, square roots etc).

And it's free!

The Activation Key doesn't bring up the calculator. I've set it to many different variations, but it simply doesn't invoke Calq...

(I'm using: Powermac G5 dual 2.5 Ghz, 1.5 GB RAM, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro XT (256 MB), OS X 10.4.9.)

Perfect. Much better than the calculator widget. More features. More convenient. Lite on resources. Keep up the great work!

Fantastic utility. One small bug that I have noticed is that when an info window is open in iTunes command one launches calq and throws some random numbers in it.

Excellent!!! Very useful!!!

Would you please make it so that you don't have to have the command modifier? I would love to be able to activate this with F13, and not have to use the command key.

Otherwise, Awesome!!!

Thanks for keeping it free!!! :D
