MAC OS X users definitely cannot complain when it comes to calculating options. The default calculator that comes with MAC OS is pretty diverse in nature and better than the other standard calculators. However, it is not really possible to build an app which is as general as a calculator for satisfying all the user scenarios. Depending on the user, different calculator apps will be found to be the favorite. Luckily, when it comes to MAC, there is no dearth of calculator alternatives and below, I will discuss a couple of them:
This app costs $19.99 and it is pretty good at number crunching, something you will probably expect from the expansive spreadsheets in general. Contrary to the other similar applications, Soulver is pretty easy to use and intuitive as well. As far as my personal experience is concerned, I’ll call it a contextual and smart calculator. Soulver lets you use natural language and that eradicates the need of using formula chains. Soulver is probably the most expensive calculator app for the MAC users. However, the app is definitely worth the price as it speeds up your work procedure and allows you to juggle between various currencies. Apart from that, using natural language constructions, you can get idea on the current stock prices as well.
Always on Top Calculator
This app always stays on top and this cheap (Comes for $0.99 only), little calculator, by no means, is a powerful MAC application. It still supports the general number crunching and as it stays on the top, you don’t need to switch to and fro between the other apps and this in case of multitasking.
I will soon come up with another article discussing some other calculator apps for MAC users. In the meantime, check out either of the two and let me and other visitors know about your experience.
