Math is easier with Magic Number.

When you can see math properly, able to type what you think, and do everything intuitively, math becomes a breeze.

From everyday math to advanced science, Magic Number lets you do more with less effort — whatever your level.

Here’s what you will enjoy:

See better — your eyes deserve more

•  See math properly and beautifully.
    Say no to messy ((8*sin(30))^(1/4)/5)*arcos(pi)
•  See the whole expression at any size.
    Everything is crystal clear and easy to understand.
•  See better results with superior formats.

Type naturally — no more mental barriers

•  Type math as you see it.
    For 2 sin 30 + √ 9, just type ‘2 sin 30 + √ 9’
    No more backward thinking ‘2 x 30 sin + 9√’
    And no more awkward syntax ‘2 * sin(30) + sqrt(9)’
•  Type fast without touching the mouse.
    You get lots of handy shortcuts like X for multiply.
•  Edit without thinking.
    Made a mistake? Just click and type over it.

Calculate intuitively — with extra smartness

•  You can deal with time:
    8:30 + 0:45 = 9:15
•  In fact you can deal with all kinds of numbers:
    fractions, percentages, complex numbers, and more.
•  You can let Magic Number do the algebra:
    Enter ‘100 – ? = 55’. You get ‘? = 45’
    Enter ‘240 – ? % = 192’. You get ‘? = 20’

Do more with less effort

•  Want to make sense of a list of numbers?
    The List feature gives you the sum, tax, and statistics
    with couple of clicks. It’s like a mini speadsheet.
•  The History lets you go back and reuse the past.
    You can even compare results.
•  You can export expressions beautifully as PDFs.
    This means you have a simple equation editor.

Go beyond calculators

•  Over 100 functions
•  25 digits accuracy
•  10 memories (variables)
•  4 customizable tax rates
•  Over 50 scientific constants
•  Statistics
•  Linear regression
•  Matrix (Inverse, determinant, Gauss-Jordan Elimination)

And much more.

Release Notes:

•  Support for macOS High Sierra
In the spirit of High Sierra, we took our time to improve Magic Number’s foundation. The new features here are the fruition of this effort.

•  Geometric functions
You can calculate the distance between 2 points, find the scalar product, and get the angle between 2 vectors. To explore, go to Menu ▸ Help ▸ Geometry.

•  Mixed base calculation
Introducing the new hash (#) operator. Like HTML, you use # to specify hexadecimals like #FFCC99. And by pressing # repeatedly, you get binaries and octals too. This means you can have numbers with different bases in a single calculation. It’s truly flexible.

•  Logarithm perfected
Previously, for log ₃ 27, you have to enter log (3 , 27) or log (3 ; 27).
Now you can simply enter log 3 space 27.

•  And more…
- Added left and right bitwise shift operators
- Smarter pasting of hexadecimal numbers
- Fixed a rare cosine bug with certain radians value
- Fixed broken Wikipedia links for Constants

For more detail go to Menu ▸ Help ▸ What’s New
and follow the links.

If you like Magic Number please take a minute to rate it.
This will warm our hearts during the long cold winter.

Version 2.0.1

The Ideal Calculator! - I've been using Magic Number for several years now, and it's the only calculator software I use - after decades of searching of the perfect calculator going back to my first computer in 1980. Magic Number has been the closest to perfection I've found, and the recent addition of editing for past results puts the icing on the cake. (I've been using the beta for about a month now, and the editing stuff works just fine.)

Version 2.8.5
Review by Lokirha

Honestly awesome - I’m just starting an MBA program online and have no math, economic, or finance background (feel free to judge - I’m judging myself, too!). Magic Number allows me to look down at the book and type exactly what I see. It’s truly terrific. One thing I’d like to see added (and it’s probbly in there) is a way to create and save formulas so I can just open a sidebar and click on whatever it is I’m trying to solve for. That said, this feature isn’t necesary for me to give an inexpensive calculator a 5-star rating. Thanks! *Update* It’s been about a year since I got this product, and it’s in my Mac tray as a common tool. Think of the calculator you get when you swipe up on your phone - same thing. I used this for everything. The app has had many updates and gets tons of support; I’m blown away. This is one heck of a calculator and Dennis Liu is doing a great job keeping it going.

Great app - This is the best calculator I’ve used, pretty much ever. I’ve been using it for everything for over a year now, and can only recommend it. The developers are super responsive and helpful, totally worth it :)

Review by psutoad

My go to calculator - I have come to rely on Magic Number for all my calculator needs. From the highly effective paper tape to the handling of complex formula calculations, it never disappoints. It’s so easy to enter calculations of complex formulas, I take it for granted now until I’m without it. This is the last calculator app you need, it’s worth the money.
