Version 2 of Handy Calculator eliminates my two previous complaints (see below). I felt it warranted a new rating so I gave it five stars partly because it is now a much more useful calculator, and partly to offset the three stars I gave it before. It works and looks great, and is now my go-to calculator, so much so that I've assigned it to one of the unused function keys on my keyboard.

Since I'm not a scientist, my needs are simple. This application is undeniably the perfect solution for all non-scientists seeking a Mac solution to calculating "stuff." ? I love this app! Love the Menu Bar or Dock features, the great single color, and everything else the developer has incorporated into this great piece of software‼️ Highly recommended!!

As an older gentleman who has poor vision, I really like using Handy Calculator due to its simple, uncluttered but sleek black design, large numbers, and its ability to show accumulative calculations in its display string. I find that Handy Calculator is considerably nicer than Apple's default calculator, which in my view, is an eyesore.

Please note that I only use a calculator occasionally, and for very simple mathematical computations. Thus, Handy Calculator meets my needs just fine. Thanks developer for making this a free app.

Fantastic! I asked these guys to add the ability to press the "C" key on my keyboard to clear the calculator, and they did. Really good customer service to match a really good app.

This is an attractive calculator with some great features, but it's let down by two major annoyances: 1. You cannot edit a formula that you've typed in any other way than by deleting characters from the end. So if you make a mistake halfway through, you can't just change one digit, you have to delete the last half of the formula to get back to the digit you want to change. 2. Once you switch away from the calculator, it becomes transparent and you can't see the numbers on it any more. There's no option to maintain visibility of the calculator when using another app. I purchased Handy calculator in May and wrote to the dev with suggestions to address these annoyances. I received a response indicating that they would be incorporated into a future update, but three months later there's still no update. That's a shame, as Handy Calculator is otherwise a great replacement calculator for the Mac.
