Reviews of PCalc

  • Best Calculator on the AppStore, just one complaint.

    (the developer response was correct it was totally my fault, I missed that setting, thank you!)

    Easily the best calculator for iPad that money can buy, I just wish that the setting for the thousands separator worked as intended. Currently if you select “commas” to separate every 3 consecutive digits, the app never actually does it. It’s my only gripe considering I work in aviation, long numbers are common & I dont like seeing long strings of numbers without anything to separate them, they all just start to blend together. If I’m doing something wrong please let me know.

    Developer Response

    Hi there, thank you for your kind review. Also, I think know why you are not seeing the thousands separator.  At the top level of the settings in the group of options that starts with 'RPN' there is an option to switch on Thousands Separators. My suspicion is that this is switched off for you, so you should just need to switch that to on. The setting you were looking at is in the Advanced Settings and lets you choose what character to use as a separator. Some people prefer to use a different separator to that which is set by the system when you pick your Language & Region, and that's what this advanced setting lets users do. If you encounter any further problem with thousand separators please send an email directly to support@pcalc.com and we'll do our best to help.

  • Simply Superb in what it does

    Seldom have I come across a program of any type which can be called "Excellent', but this is the real deal. Throw out your TI, your HP, your Casio. PCalc magically transforms your phone into a state-of-the-Art customizable calculator. For all your calculating needs, be it simple, scientific, or computer science. Yes, it might be nice to have business/finance functions. But I just love this program for what it does, and at an extremely reasonable one-time cost. You can't go wrong. It even has a really handy widget for the iPad. I love it!
