Go Calc - Custom Calculator Builder For The iPhone

February 17, 2010 in Productivity (E)

[prMac.com] Birmingham, United Kingdom - Apps On The Move today is pleased to announce Go Calc 1.9.1, an innovative app which allows users to build their own custom calculators on the iPhone and iPod Touch. Users can create as many calculator mini apps as they need using formulas which will be familiar to anyone who uses spreadsheets. Go Calc makes it easy to get the right answer every time.

"I've been surprised by the range of problems Go Calc is being used to solve" said Matthew Kennard, the founder of Apps On The Move. "Go Calc users are not computer geeks, but have been able to create calculators used constantly in their work and personal life."

Go Calc is helping many users right now to solve many different kinds of problems. It's flexibility means it is impossible to list all the possible uses. A small sample includes working out sales commission, pipe fitting, drug doses for treating animals, pricing in a book shop and radioactive waste calculations. If a user needs to do a calculation involving a number of different variables and formulas then Go Calc can help. Anyone who is able to write simple formulas in a spreadsheet will have no problems using Go Calc.

Getting started with Go Calc is simple. A calculation can contain as many variables and results as are needed. The display of each variable and result can be customized. The values of variables can be changed using the familiar calculator keypad or a slider. This enables what-if type experiments to be carried out quickly. Go Calc includes over 40 functions which use the same syntax as popular spreadsheet programs. A complete list of supported functions is available on the developer's website.

Go Calc has been designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It drops the spreadsheet grid paradigm as being unsuitable for most uses on mobile devices. Calculators created in Go Calc can be organized into folders to allow users to create hundreds of calculators for many different uses.

Go Calc comes with sample calculators which include unit conversion, tip calculation and interest payments. The powerful formula builder includes help on the syntax of the functions, and a complete manual is contained within the app. Import and export features allow users to backup their calculations and import calculations created by others. Recent versions of Go Calc continue to respond to feedback from users by including the option to display results using scientific notation, and the use of global variables.
