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.
Fixed a graphical glitch with the buttons in the widget on macOS 14.
Fixed a crash on macOS 11 on Apple Silicon.
Ratings and Reviews
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 dock.
The only calculator app you need
I've been using this app for far longer than I can remember, but unlike my memory, PCalc just keeps getting better and better. Whenever there is a major mac or iOS (I also own PCalc on mobile) operating system version, PCalc is consistently one of the few apps that are ready and updated on day 1. The app itself has been incredibly stable. There are more tools in the app than I know what to do with. And now with version 4.9, there are even more customizations available. This app offers so much value for the price paid; and all of the above can be said about the mobile version of the app.
PCalc 4.5.3 on 10.8 bug
This is really a great app, but I'm using 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, yes I know it's an old os, and there's a bug I noticed.
About a third of the time opening the app, the number screen comes up blank. Not with a zero or anything else, just blank.
After a few more times of closing then opening, it works fine again, finally showing numbers. Is this just a Mountain Lion bug,
or is anyone else having this problem? Oh well, it actually works sometime, just wondered if anyone else has experienced this too.
I'm using version 4.5.3.
