Smart notepad with a built-in calculator.

Overview

Soulver 3 is a smart notepad with a built-in calculator. It gives instant answers to any calculations it finds in your text. It's a better way to work stuff out than with a traditional calculator, and a more lightweight tool for quick calculations than a spreadsheet.

Math Features:
  • Instant calculations, no equals required
  • Use words alongside numbers, so calculations make sense
  • Quick totals of all your lines, and subtotals
  • Calendar calculations (June 9 + 3 weeks, 3:35 pm + 6 hours 27 minutes)
  • Easy percentages ("$300 - 10%", "30 as a % of 200")
  • Unit conversions ("10 kg in pounds, "25 meters in feet")
  • 168 live real-world and cryptocurrency rates.
  • Line references to build little calculating documents
  • Variables & variable autocompleting
  • Global variables & custom units
App Features:
  • Dark mode
  • Sidebar for organising your sheets and the ability to make folders
  • Headings (#), comments (//) & labels (:)
  • Customize your syntax coloring & font
  • Automatic number formatting, with spaces around operators and thousand separators
  • Number scrubbing (hold shift and hover over a number)
  • Deep macOS system integration: Touch Bar support, Quicklook, Calculate anywhere services
  • Automation tools: a command-line interface, Alfred workflow, Automator action

What's new in Soulver 3

Version 3.1.0:
Documents & Sheets:
  • You can now open, edit and save Soulver 3 files in Finder, rather than needing to import and export them to make edits
  • Added a duplicate sheet command
Formatting:
  • Added the ability to set default answer formatting options (under Tweak Engine…)
  • Lines by default always match the default formatting. If you set any manual formatting options, they will always use the user specified settings
  • You can reset lines to always use the default
  • The quick total now uses the default formatting options too
  • Added all the line formatting options to the answer contextual menu
Fractions:
  • Added a fraction formatting option (i.e 1.75 = 1 3/4)
  • Added support for ‘vulgar fraction’ characters, like ½, ¼, etc
  • Fixed an issue where fractions wouldn’t work as part of unit expressions
Calculator Engine:
  • You can now use fractional units of time in date/time calculations (i.e 3pm + 1.5 hours)
  • You can now used bracketed expressions as part of phrase functions (i.e (5+5) as a % of (10+10))
  • A time component is now always included in the result of a date and time calculation when it is included in the expression
  • Added a ‘mph’ unit (miles per hour)
  • Added support for bps units (kbps, mbps, gbps, etc)
  • Added additional electrical units (amps, volts, ohms) pressure units (bar, psi, atm), substance units (moles)
Bug fixes:
  • Fixed an issue where specifying the output unit did not work with some date calculation phrases
  • Fixed an issue where system text replacements were not working in Soulver
  • Fixed an issue where fractional units without a 0 (like .5m) were not working correctly
  • Fixed a bug where references depending on subtotals would in certain cases not update after a line above had been deleted
  • Fixed a bug with multiplying pure percentages

Great application. I had Soulver 2 and instantly updated to 3 when it came out. It’s fantastic for quick formulas.

I suppose if one needs to enter a lot of calculations into their notes on a regular basis it might be worth the money. As likely for the majority of Note users this is likely not the case. Considering the price for imbedding a calculator into Notes, I use Devon Technologies FREE Calc Service that installs as a contextual menu. You just click on the typed formula in Notes and the number can be pasted in, appended to the end of the formula or calculation, or just have the answer displayed. For the number of times I enter calculations into Note, I don't feel that my usage justifies the price considering the easy to use alternative,.

Soulver's services are essentially free as well (in the sense that they continue to work after the 30-day trial finishes). They're a lot more powerful than Devon's CalcService too (with live currencies, unit conversions, date & time calculations, percentage phrases, etc).

Acqualia: Your response leaves me confused. On the one hand you charge $30 for your product. On the other you state you don't have to pay for it to continue use it after the trial. Which is it? Is this donationware or is it crippled in some way.

That said I still stand by my position. If you have specific needs that adding an expensive calculator to Notes would be cost effective for your needs, then I have no issue with that decision. But I feel that for most users of Notes, that occasionally need to have calculations within their note, either using Apples calculator with keystroke shortcuts (C & P) for copy and paste, or CalcService is a simple, cost effective and viable alternative.

Jim, you mentioned that you use Devon Technologies free Calc Service via macOS contextual menus so I was pointing out that Soulver has similar but more powerful macOS services which are free to use, even after the trial finishes. The Soulver application itself will not allow you to make/edit new sheets in its user interface once the trial ends.

Acqualia. So let me attempt to translate your latest reply for users that don't speak 'geek'. I believe what you are saying is that you can continue to use the product with existing notes where you have already used the app but it will not allow you to use the app after the trial period in any new notes or edit existing notes with the app that are no already using it. Kindly correct me if I am wrong about this interpretation.

Yes, Soulver itself goes into a read-only mode after the trial ends. But if you only want to continue to use the system wide services (for calculating within the Notes app, or any other app), you're welcome to do so.

Please define 'System Wide Services' and what they can do in Notes and 'other apps'. Please also provide concrete information instead of vague marketing fluff and 'tech speak' so non technical readers can make informed decisions.

Highlight some text with a math expression anywhere in macOS, control-click to show the contextual menu, go to Services > Calculate and Append (with Soulver) and the answer will be inserted. The entire Soulver math feature set is available through this service and it will continue to work after the trial finishes. I hope that's clear.
