Soulver helps you do quick calculations and work things out. Use Soulver to play around with numbers, do "back of the envelope" calculations, and solve day-to-day problems.
Annotate your numbers with words, so that they make sense to you. Soulver picks out the numbers and calculates your answer as you type. Do calculations over multiple lines, and refer to previous lines, much like a spreadsheet.
Soulver is great for adding things up, doing all kinds of percentages easily, and converting things, like currencies. It's quicker to use than a spreadsheet, and smarter and clearer than a traditional calculator.

Such a good idea
This is really a great idea.
On the classic Mac OS I used to use the Nisus Writer word processor and that could do calculations, you would write out the equation on a line, then select and use a command to evaluate it. This was so useful but as I don't use Nisus Writer any more on OS X I have been missing that.
Soulver now brings back this ability to my computer and much more besides.
It would would have been so useful if I'd know about it a month ago when I was doing my accounts, but at least I will have it for next year.
I really like the fact that Soulver uses the Apple help system. I don't like it when applications just open a webpage with the help at that, or worse still a Wiki type thing. I like the well thought out Help of Soulver and in the simple GUI of the Apple Help system.
The only thing I don't understand about Soulver is the name ☺ Okay it is Solver with a "U" but why?
If the people at Acqualia want to do something else, I would really like to see an ultra simple table application. This would open a window with a table, and you could put in data and the table will produce calculations. It wouldn't be a spreadsheet, but rather just a very simple table. There was a program like that for a few years called "Tables" but alas it was abandoned. With the App Store now I think that small companies like Acqualia can now get a much bigger market so maybe a program like the one I've described would do better now.
Interesting take on the old calculator...
This is a very interesting application which puts a whole new spin on the idea of the pocket calculator in that you can enter your calculation as a sentence and it works out the appropriate calculation for you. It does exactly what it says in the main description and is quite intuitive and even a bit addictive if you like odd facts such as how many hours you have been alive.
While there are some amazing units available, such as bohr and leagues in the length category and cup, dash and tablespoon in the volume category, there appears to be no provision for temperature conversion - no Centigrade, Fahrenheit, or Kelvin in sight - which is a somewhat surprising omisson in an application of this type. Maybe it will be included in a later version…?
While the lack of temperature units would lose the programmers a half star, it is not enough to take off a full star on the rating - so I have left it at 5.
One thing missing
I've been using this app for quite a quite while. It works superbly well with my business, engineering data, calculations and charging (invoicing) clients. Many of my calculations I have to ratify so I use it in conjuction with another calc app on my iPhone. I have to give it 5 stars as it works exactlly as is says and surperbly well, I use it every day!
For me one addition would be a great benifit. I've set up templates where text, formulars and format are already in place just for me to enter the data and then save the file. Well there lays my problem. The templates are saved as files, I open the file with the intention to 'save as', so many times I just hit 'save' arrrrrrr..... Yes my fault and I sould slow down! But what be even better..... Acqualia how about the ability to save templates as we do with 'Pages', 'Numbers' etc? Then I could hit cmd+s to my hearts content.
