I haven't tried the product, my comment is about the price.

If the developer reckons that Apple's calc costs $129 then Calcline costs $149 (as you have to have Mac OS X to use it).

Yes, me too as you. I didn't tested the software but we don't need it to judge it. This developer should go bananas as any developer asking for money, I do not need to test things to judge them . That's all. All you are right, this product should be free as all the software have to, As for love. Regarding the price of this software is a crazy thing, 1199 $ to buy a iMac, 129 $ for the Os and 20 $ to buy the software. Total is 1348 $.

I was just responding to the developers comment about the price.

As for judging the software without testing it, I made no comments about it's quality, it's interface or any functionally the software may or may not have.

I didn't even comment on whether the software is worth the price or whether it should be free or not.

I was simply stating a fact so my comment would not be mistaken for a review of the software and put people off trying the software.

Developers can of course charge what they want for a product and users can choose for themselves (by testing it) if the software is worth it. I very happily paid for Soulver, not because I was unhappy with Apple's offering but because I like choice. If I was not a registered Soulver user I might very well test and think about buying this product.

Just to let you know, I still have not tried the product, I am sure it is a fine piece of software but one I have no need for it.

i think apple came out with such a beautiful and eloquent calculator. apple+1 does the simple things. apple+2 does scientific functions, and pressing shift causes the scientific functions on the left side to change just how they should, just like a real scientific calculator. apple+3 brings up the programmer calculator. all three have an RPN mode. and under Convert one has ten options. there's a paper tape window to see how things are being figured. once gain, eloquent and beautiful. if you need more it looks like the Grapher in the Utilities folder might be fun if you know what you are doing.

i'm sure Calcline is a great tool and i'm hoping it fills a void, but i'm guessing it will be a hard sell because apple's calculator probably does more than most mac users need - not to mention the Grapher.

Exactly right, below the dev says that the OS calc is not free but $129.00, as that is what the OS costs. Well hell, how can this be a replacement/alternative (either way it adds up to the theory your going to be using calcline instead of the built in calc.) I have mixed feelings about this dev, his products, and the way he approaches critiques. All those who find this interesting be weary. At least try what the user above me has posted, you will see you don't really need this app. If you fee like dropping $20 on nothing, donate some money to a charity. Nice review JimBlue.

If it was an "alternative," it would be free, sir.

The desktop calculator included with the OS is not free. The OS costs US$ 129.00. Like it or not software is developed by workers as the one that build cars, airplanes, bolts, bricks, tables, bridges and cheese. So I think is useless complaining that software is not free. Only love it's free. Just my opinion, maybe I'm wrong..

How is this different from Leopard's Spotlight calculator?

Thanks for the tip. I was unaware of the Spotlight feature, and your tip provides me with all the functionality I need.
