Calca overview

Calca is a powerful symbolic calculator that updates as you type, giving you instant answers. It solves equations and simplifies complex expressions. It is also a rich Markdown text editor so that you can explain your ideas alongside your calculations.

Calca is perfect for professionals and students - anyone who works with numbers and equations. Variables and functions can be created with only a few keystrokes and can be manipulated with a rich library of operators and functions. All calculations are stored as plain text so you can easily share them with other editors and move them from device to device. Calca has been designed to work with iCloud documents so all your devices can access your calculations - you'll always have the latest files ready for viewing and editing.

Features
  • Variables "x = 42"
  • Functions "f = 9/5*c + 32" and even recursive functions
  • Solves equations ("x + 2x + 4x = 42", what is x?)
  • Matrices with inverses so you can solve linear equations
  • Sum, prod, map, and reduce operations on lists, matrices, and ranges
  • Trigonometry and complex numbers
  • Derivatives of functions
  • Logic operations and if statements
  • Binary math (& and |) and support for binary and hex number ("0xA9" and "0b1010")
  • Keeps track of units (m, s, m/s, m/s^2, etc.) so you can verify your equations as you compute

Nice app in principle but there is no possibility to change the number format. If you can live with the numbers in the US-format and English language only - this is a good choice. But the rest of the world still have to wait for the support of different number formats.

This application is awesome. It's a text editor that supports markdown and operate's similar to a spreadsheet. You can calculate simple arithmetic, functions, equations and complex expressions right inside your text. Change a number and Calca auto recalculates. Very similar to Soulver which I was using prior to purchasing Calca but Calca integrates much nicer with your text and is cheaper than Soulver. This is the best $5.00 I spent on an application in a long time. I often complain that many developers overcharge for applications that you only use occasionally. I personally would have paid $10 or $15 for this gem. BTW: I am in know way affiliated with the developer. I have never met or spoke to him/them/her!
