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!

Great, not perfect - The functionality of this calculator app is unparalled. I have yet to find anything as robust. The one place it falls short is in the interface, particularly the layout options. I don't like any of the options. I wish the tape would merge with the calculator and not just float next to it. Sometimes when you drag the calculator window around, the tape doesn't go with it, which is frustrating to say the least. It is my go to iOS calculator, but I just can't find myself satisfied with any layout they offer on the Mac side.
can't force tape to stay attached? - I do a lot of dragging from window to window (triple desktop monitors) and any time I move the calculator, the tape gets detached. I wish there were some way to dock the tape. I know I can just use the horizatal version of the tape, but I want the full vertical tape screen.
Perfect - I love PCalc so much it's not even funny. If I had to complain about one thing it would be its interface for converting units. But even that really isn't all that bad and the rest of the app simply shines. I love PCalc, have I said that?
my favorite, the best rpn - I've been using it on iphone and ipad for years. fantastic calculator. the conversions are very useful. worth every cent. you must try the cute built-in mini game!
Fantastic Programming and Scientific Calculator - I'm a die hard HP and RPN fanatic, I've tried almost all the RPN calculators available on the App Store and none even remotely come close to PCalc. If you're even considering this, just buy it - it's fantastic!
