Editors’ Notes

Let’s be honest: It’s not always easy to get excited about a calculator. But PCalc is well more than the sum of its parts; this beautifully designed utility is filled with high-powered features and functions that will appeal to everyone from engineers to programmers to students going to, well, pre-calc. If you’re a fan of scientific notation, trigonometry, and/or unit conversion, add this to your home screen.

Really Pleased With This

I decided to finally purchase a calculator for my iPad as there is no Apple version as standard.

There are many what are available in the App Store - but I chose this due to its range of scientific functions plus a number require a yearly subscription whilst this was available as a one-off payment and hence works out to be significantly cheaper.

The calculator itself is great, easy to customise and furthermore you can download a very informative instruction manual for it.

However, what raises it above all the others and makes it that much more intriguing - is its obvious references to The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - plus the rather fun Easter Eggs that exist within it - hint enter the About Screen.

Clearly I haven’t tried all the other Calculator Apps in the store - so I can’t say hand on heart this is the best; but it’s hard to imagine one that matches it for both the serious ‘functions’ it provides plus the more ‘fun’ features.

I also understand that this was one of the first calculators to be offered for Apple Products (going back to the early Macs).

Highly Recommended.

THE go to calculator

This has been my go to calculator for 7 years. Easily programmable, meaning I can set up one touch buttons so my staff can do calculations on their own without bothering me.
Constantly updated, making use of shortcuts etc that put other much bigger app developers to shame.
