the best gets better - It’s been a great application for years, and the developer continues to show his support for his customers by providing yet another great, and free, update that takes advantage of the latest iOS features. The notification center widget is a nice touch, the look of the calculator is improved (it blends nicely with Yosemite), and the interactivity between devices is tremendous. Well worth the $10.
copy/paste works horrible - Numbers insertion through copy/paste works horrible. When I insert, for example, "130+120=", I'm given the result "1.3e-10 + 1.2e-10 = 2.5e -10". There wasn't such a problem before, I changed the types of calculators, have tried all the option. Please fix the issue!

Best dedicated calculator app on the Apple platform. - I have been developing something of a calculator hobby, collecting vintage HP calculators, reading manuals for fun, watching YouTube videos about them, etc. I’ve tried a number of different calculators on the Apple platform (macOS and iOS), both the stock calculators and several custom calculators. PCalc has more features, is better supported, and has more fiddly details available when the user wants them than any other dedicated calculator I’ve tried. The apps work exactly as I would expect, and most importantly fit in with the rest of the OS. There’s so much polish and attention to detail here; PCalc stands out as a gem on the Apple platform. If you want more than the stock calculator, but don’t want a fancy CAS or graphing tool, PCalc is where you should start looking. Bonus points for all the details emulating vintage HP calculators, particularly the RPN support and the Voyager series layout.
ALL TIME GREATEST CALCULATOR - If you’re an engineer, programmer, scientist, number lover, or calculator fanatic then welcome home. This app is for you. You will be giddy with happiness from the functionality and ui. You will experience joy you never thought a calculator could possibly bring you. It can even calculate the ultimate number. -To the devs, thank you so much. I’m estatic that I found this app. It’s like my years of frustrated search has concluded. A search I didn’t realize existed until I found this. I never have to switch calculators or get frustrated from limits.
Great Fraction feature for Woodworkers - I have bought every version of this app (iphone, ipad, Mac). I know it is a great calculator for lots of uses but my favorite is quickly working through fractions by adding 1.3.4 resulting in 1 3/4 and added dozens of other fractions to determine total length of material needed. You have to set fractions in the setting page.
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.
