Calq

1.4.6
25 January 2009

On-demand calculator app.

Overview

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 in Calq

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

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

As before, this is a wonderful app and absolutely invaluable. Worryingly when my Mac running Mojave starts up I get a message saying that Calq will not run on future versions of the OS, but I have seen no word of a new version to address this. please don't let this great product become abandonware!

Says at the top of the page "Calq has been discontinued."

I hate developers of great apps who neither update them nor make them open source so some one else can.

When I contacted the dev he told me that there are other apps like it, but DAMN! there isn't one that even comes close.

Great app - use it all the time. Could not be more useful and never had a problem with it. I would be bereft without it!

Or maybe Katoemba will open-source Calq? Why allow a great app to die if it's not necessary?

I asked the dev if he'd recompile Calq as a 64 bit app to maintain its functionality down the road, and his response was more or less "That's not going to happen...there are plenty of alternatives". Unfortunately, though, I've looked at innumerable calculator type apps and haven't found anything that offers anything like Calq's functionality. Maybe if enough of us Calq lovers get on the bandwagon and inundate him with emails he'll have a change of heart.

Do you think harassing the developer is a good idea?
Why don't we Calq lovers rather put up a Kickstarter to pay him to compile a 64-bit version of it...

Maybe the dev would be open to building a 64 bit version of Calq if enough users INSISTED that it was IRREPLACEABLE, and I'd be more than willing to pay if he made it not unreasonably priced shareware, but he sounded pretty negative about the idea when I contacted him.

And I certainly don't think harassing or pressuring him would be a wise idea, because I don't know if he could be counted on for support under those circumstances.

And considering that his email address and URL are no longer posted on MU, there doesn't appear to be any way to follow up on any plan of action.

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.
