I agree, it does take a fair amount of work by the developer to insure h(er)is app will be fully compatible with OS 10.9 Mavericks. But does that fact alone justify demanding I buy Numi again when only recently bought and paid for Numi 1.x?! Especially since I also bought and paid for Numeric Notes recently.

Will Numi 1.7.1 not work in OS 10.9? If so, I don't see the what added value there is to upgrade, from 1.7.1 to 2.0. "Introductory price" of 4.99 is actually $4.99 X 2 = $9.98" i.e. there is no introductory price, really, is there?

This is a flagrant example of what Consumer Reports magazine calls "Selling It" i.e. promising you a discount but in fact selling you full price.
Numi's developer owes his customers better value and better customer service!

I'm having a whale of difficult time using Numi. it would be helpful if i could access documentation as the website suggests, but right clicking the menu bar icon simply opens a normal calculation window. No other way I have tried works either. The website support page doesn't answer any of my questions either, such as saving to pdf.

I can't even click on an "About Numi" or choose a preferences command. Nothing but the window with accumulating numbers and letters seems possible. Im a pretty advanced Mac OS user since 1985, have OS 10.8.2, so I'm no beginner. Thanks for your help. Tom

Hmm, the second MAS app in a row that I have downloaded and which didn't then not work. The other one crashed; with this one nothing happens. The only customer review at the MAS cites the same issue. We're both using 64-bit Mac Book Pro's with SL.

Not impressed.

@Dmitry

Thank you for the reply.

I'll be looking forward to MAS udpating your app.

BTW, you ought to provide contact information at your website. I went to your support page for Numi Lite, but found no way to email you/your company.

WARNING! If you don't have English keyboard, you will not be able to use this application. To have the sum of a calculation you need to press "Ctrl+="

With my Swedish keyboard I can't do that combination, Sadly I bought the app before I discovered this problem. I'm sure it's brilliant for a English keyboard layout. But if you have in another language you might have problem.

I tried sending the guys a email for two weeks now. But their email server is down. Some days ago I shared my problem here on the troubleshooting. And still no reply. So if you have questions, there is nobody to ask.

Thats sad as this gizmo app could be good to have if it worked (for me),

If you have noticed, your email support@getnumi.info is still not working.

And why not just tell me if there is a solution here on MU?

Then anyone with the same issue can read the solution. If there is one?

Still no reply on my fourth email. And no reply to my question here in troubleshooting tab.

Will make complaint to App Store and ask for refund! Don't like to be ripped of. Even if it's only $4.99!

I'm a not a big fun of find replacements for basic tools every OS have, but this time seems to be exception. Numi allows me to calculate everything with detail description of what is what. Sometimes I just don't calculate because I already have some calculations in it, and what I do is just edit some parts and get new results! Thanks a lot!

Nice simple concept in the menubar. Not too resource heavy but more than I would expect for such a simple concept. Simple doesn't mean bad, actually better. One thing I can't get over is that even if you purchased the app there are still self promotion buttons for numeric notes, twitter, facebook, and google +. I can understand in a demo... but at least give paid users a preferences (command + ,) so things like this can be adjusted. As there are no preferences... you can't change shortcuts or any other facet of the app. So no customization options + promotion buttons = 2.5 when it could easily be a 4+ star app with a little bit of work.

There are several apps that replace original apps shipped with OS X in so nice, so beautiful way, that you'll never back to originals. When I bought this app I just was intrigued by possibility to combine calculations with text. But now this app becomes my best companion when I need to know anything related to calculations. And just $5. Great work, thanks!

Three questions:

1.) How do you handle multiple documents/calculations in Numi?

2.) What's the difference between Numi and Numeric Notes (by the same developer)?

3.) I didn't quite get the totals calculation. Can it handle multiple totals, i.e. subtotals?

1. Numi handle all it content as plain text without additional attributes, so feel free to copy it content to or from any text file

2. Numeric notes allows to have separate documents for calculations, and export them to PDF. Numeric notes more suitable for business. (quotes, recalculations by template, etc)

3. Totals calculated by all lines right above it. Ensure you don't have blank lines before sum. Sure, you can handle subtotals: sum's that goes right after another sum has the same value.

Please visit documentation page that describes all possibilities in more details.

Thank you very much for the quick response, Apprium. (Your apps look very tasty.)

What I find very attractive in Numi, is the convenience of the quick status bar location of your calculations. However, the multiple documents capability of Numeric Notes makes it a hard choice between the two. I personally don't see why the "business" audience (as you describe it) of Numeric Notes wouldn't benefit as much as Numi's audience from the convenient status bar location.

FWIW, I think I'm someone who'd prefer Numeric Note's capabilities (which you touched upon in your 2nd answer), but also someone who's looking for the status bar convenience of Numi.

Here's a humble suggestion:

Consider the addition of Numi's status bar operation in Numeric Notes (not necessarily by replacing the 'normal documents' fashion, but by complementing it with this possibility).

Alternatively, consider adding Open/Save documents in Numi. (Copy/Pasting may not be worthwhile, working with different calculations.)

As it stands right now, I'd be disappointed with the lack of functionality in either of the two apps:

- Missing Open/Save if I go with Numi.
- Missing the snappy status bar convenience if I go with Numeric Notes.

Take this as constructive feedback. I personally think you have to re-architecture the models between the two, or skip one of them. (Easier said than done, I can understand, but those are my thoughts. I think I'll go with Numi, or both. Speaking of which, I assume you can transparently copy/paste calculations between these apps?)

Thanks for feedback, Henrik!

We have plans about Numi improvements in "several documents" way, but this feature still in draft, since we still analyze of using several documents within calculations. For now there is one option: use different calculations in the same document, since you have no limits on document size.

Marcossi had trouble on 03 Feb 2013
Been trying to email the guys for days now, but their mail server don't work and mail bounces back.

I don't have a English keyboard and can't use i.e. "Ctrl+=" to get the sum. That makes this widget useless for me, and I don't know if there is a fix?
