Editors' Review

+
It won't win any beauty contests, but this free software calculator rocks the socks off the standard Windows applet. In addition to doing simple arithmetic, Calc98 supports financial functions, (including interest and discount, annuity, mortgage payment), unit conversions, physical constants, and support for matrices and complex numbers. It can even work in Reverse Polish Notation (RPN). A modest but well-chosen set of options lets you fine-tune the keypad and the way digits are displayed. Our main complaint with Calc98 is it can't emulate a paper tape--a useful feature when you want to store your calculations. We also thought pressing the shift key ought to trigger the program's shift function. But don't let that stop you. If you don't need good looks or graphing capabilities, Calc98 probably has everything you'd want in a desktop calculator.

"Not too bad"

November 21, 2012  |  By CarlM89

 |  Version: Calc98 5.3

Pros

Easy to use, has almost every function you need

Cons

When working with negative exponents it always gives the worng calculation. 4 x 10(-1) should be -.4 but the calculator won't move the decimal to the left.

Summary

Over all pretty good. Just keep in mind the error.

"Overall pretty good"

August 22, 2011  |  By jboone888

 |  Version: Calc98 5.3

Pros

Loaded with features. Huge selection of unit conversions.

Cons

Its complex number mode is very clumsy to use so it's a pain for electrical engineers. No paper tape feature.

Summary

Loaded with features but not the best out there. I really need something like a paper tape.

 |  Version: Calc98 5.3

Pros

Excellent little calculator and worlds better than the one on XP

None that I have seen

I never liked the calculator that comes with Windows XP so I finally decided to look for a replacement.
This unit is much better than the XP one and offers many more options .
If you have an XP I suggest updating to this.
