PCalc is the powerful choice for scientists, engineers, students, programmers, or indeed anybody looking for a feature rich calculator. It includes an optional RPN mode and multi-line display, a choice of button layouts, an extensive set of unit conversions and constants, a paper tape, multiple undo and redo, engineering and scientific notation, as well as support for hexadecimal, octal, and binary calculations.
Includes an Apple Watch app, so you can calculate on your wrist!
Fixed a problem with blank keys in the Apple Watch app when running on watchOS 4.
Fixed a problem with PCalc accessing the clipboard when running functions and conversions.
Ratings and Reviews
I must say what an impressive piece of work this App is. I’m 69 now but I cut my programming teeth in the 70/80s on the HP-97 and HP-42S - this app exceeds their functionality, but in fairness to those Vintage calculators they were (and mine are still functioning ) running under 35+ years old technology.
Lacking DMS parsing
A very pretty and competent calculator but as a land surveyor, I work extensively with Degrees Minutes Seconds and fractions of Seconds. I need to be able to input these as DMS and convert them to decimal degrees before applying trigonometric functions. The results of calculations often need to be converted back to DMS to obtain an angle or bearing.
Currently, this calculator doesn’t have this function (and its inverse) and is therefore a pain to use for this purpose.
Excellent App with Excellent Support from developers. Easily a 5 Star App. The new update takes it to the next level and I shall purchase Macbook version in order to support development.
