I love this calculator! Now in version 4 there were many new items added which makes it more compatible to the versions in iOS 7. It is my calculator since the beginning and so I realized the changes. The big layouts are wonderful for an old guy like me and the themes are very good. I didn't realize any big faults and the saved constants are a big help for me. It is fast, stable and worked in every OS X I ever used. Great! The number of digits could be a little bigger, but 15 is more than enough for the daily use I think. A big thank you to the developer and his continuous maintenance. Danke!

As a long-time user of DragThing, I expected PCalc to be an equally superb application, with support to match. I wasn't disappointed. I loved KoalaCalc, but I prefer PCalc, and it's worth every penny of the modest shareware fee.

Over many years, and many trials, this is the one calculator I come home to. It gives me what I need right there. It has earned a place in my Dock. The iOS version was the 1st app i bought for my iPad. Insanely great. Even worse, the developer is very responsive!

I liked Koala Calc, mentioned by the previous reviewer. I don't recall the specifics of why I stopped using it. I do recall that the latest version is from 2005.

These days I use PCalc. Great features, excellent support, and it is maintained regularly.

The calculator that i prefer is Koloa Calc. It is also free and the numeric entry is easier for me.

Seems to have lots of functionality, but is completely lacking in any useful instructions. It would be nice to have a desktop calculator to handle simultaneous and quadratic equations, but I cannot figure out how to use the functions.

The conversions and constants are great, but whout knowing how to use the "advanced" features I cannot see how this is any more use than Apples FREE calculator.

You know you're right, but I think this is a different product idea you have. I suggested textbook output and input as well to better facilitate Quadratics and Matrixes. Its a tall order for the price rand but would definitely get my money. I need a good laptop based graphing calc to match my TI nSpire with CAS and this guy's code seems readily able to pull it off.

We would sit back and watch what he does. I'll buy the first graphing version that allows me to view tables based on my graphs. Of course allowing me to drag the graph around and capture the values in a table would be completely awesome. That's like superhero coding.. complete with codpiece!
