Versatile calculator

Customize this attractive calculator to fit any math problem.

DreamCalc Professional Edition is an attractive and versatile calculator that can meet the needs of both casual calculator users and those who have more demanding tasks to perform. Its multiple interfaces and many features make it a great choice for people with a wide variety of calculating needs.

The program's interface is clean and sleek, appearing very much like a real-life calculator. An assortment of skins allows users to customize the calculator's appearance. Users can choose between four types of calculators: Simple, Standard Scientific, Scientific with Base- N Keys, and Financial Scientific. This ensures that users have access to only the features they need, which makes this program a good choice for people of any skill level. Each style of calculator features the keys you would expect of its real-life counterpart, but also has functions organized in menus and windows. The paper roll feature, for example, allows users to view and print a record of their work, just as a desktop printing calculator would. A separate graphing window gives users access to full graphing capabilities. The program throws in a few nice extras as well, including quick conversions for temperature, length, speed, and more. Overall, we found the program to be packed with features but well-organized, and thus easy to use. The built-in Help file is well-written and thorough, with plenty of screenshots and detailed instructions.

DreamCalc Professional Edition is free to try but has a nag screen. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
