Moffsoft FreeCalc

CNET Editors' review

Many try to improve on the standard Windows calculator, and Moffsoft FreeCalc does a fairly good job of it. Besides the traditional functions, this calculator offers extras such as SQRT through a bigger, easier interface. Our favorite feature is the "transaction tape," essentially an ongoing record of all calculations performed. You'll never again be at square one after accidentally pressing C--just look at the tape and start from your last calculation. Number crunchers will be sure to appreciate FreeCalc's enhancements to their primary tools.

    "Great Calculator - Read the prompts when Installing"

    December 6, 2013  |   By djollie111

    Version: Moffsoft FreeCalc 1.2.0.6

    Pros

    This is a great re-sizeable calculator with on-screen tape. Perfect for using the keypad with. Easy to enlarge, can change color schemes to a few built-in schemes. You can save the tape as a txt file too.

    Cons

    When downloading from Download.com, be sure to read all the prompts and use CUSTOM install to avoid all the junk CNET tries to stick you with, some of which is questionable. Decline the other software installs, and then you should finally get to the calc install.

    I don't like how if the calc is already open somewhere in the background it gives you a dialog box and you have to click OK. If it's already open, it should just bring it to the front. Would like some other color schemes, too.

    Summary

    Great calc for everyday use. Use Custom install to avoid junkware.

    "download it from Moffsoft website"

    August 17, 2013  |   By lincoln904

    Version: Moffsoft FreeCalc 1.2.0.6

    Pros

    great program. I love having an area I can see the calculations I performed.

    Cons

    downloading it from cnet.com was a mess. Even though I checked the boxes not to download other software, It did anyway. three or four programs. I attempted to uninstall the other programs before they were installed was the message I received. I got the programs uninstalled but it was a struggle.

    Summary

    download it from Moffsoft website it comes without a bunch of other programs.

    "Wanted a calculator... ended up with so much more"

    February 20, 2013  |   By fezzer7173

    Version: Moffsoft FreeCalc 1.2.0.6

    Pros

    It is a calculator and it performs basic math functions.

    Cons

    I ended up with toolbars, an external file backup program, an adblock program that was - in itself - an ad, and a 4th program that looked like a utility file, but wasn't.
    I'm kinda peeved that c|net would give a positive review to a software upload that contains potential malware, along with the standard adware and garbage that gunked up my browser ON MY WORK COMPUTER, thanks. Next time, mention that up front, would ya?

    "Works well"

    February 9, 2013  |   By GreenRaven999

    Version: Moffsoft FreeCalc 1.2.0.6

    Pros

    I just wanted a simple calculator with a tape function, and this one does that. You can also save the tapes.

    Cons

    I didn't notice any problems.

    "Download triggered a security alert."

    January 5, 2013  |   By Dulcimer172

    Version: Moffsoft FreeCalc 1.2.0.6

    Pros

    Never used the product - see cons

    Cons

    During the download, my Norton Security Software flagged a "Adware Crossid activity". So once the load completed, I removed the software.

    This may be nothing. But I will not use anything that has this stigma associated with it, when I can find plenty of other calculators to do the job.

    "Better than the standard MS Calculator"

    August 16, 2012  |   By Shogun_One

    Version: Moffsoft FreeCalc 1.2.0.6

    Pros

    Shows you the progression of the calculations like it would be on paper. I find that very helpful.

    Cons

    I didn't appreciate that it was bundled with other stuff, but you could easily option out of it.

    Summary

    If you have somehow "lost" your MS Calculator, this is an excellent replacement.

    "been using for years -- perfect!"

    February 3, 2012  |   By Phi1osopher

    Version: Moffsoft FreeCalc 1.2.0.6

    Pros

    Been using the Moffsoft Free Calculator for years. Each time I buy a new computer or replace a hard drive, this is one of the first programs I re-download.

    This just your simple, perfectly working calculator with a "virtual paper tape" feature. IF you are at all like me, and susceptible to the occasional wild keystroke, being able to see the "tape" trail as my blazing fingers do their thing is incredibly handy dandy.

    Cons

    none at all (this box requires a minimum of 10 characters...)

    Summary

    get it -- its free, and super duper awesome!

    "It works, it's free & it's got a tape!"

    December 26, 2011  |   By webhawk50

    Version: Moffsoft FreeCalc 1.2.0.6

    Pros

    1. Free
    2. Works well & does percentages
    3. It's got a running tape

    Cons

    1. Pretty bland looking; more or less flat 2D-looking but who really cares as long as it works?

    2. I would like to be able to enlarge it, but again, this is mere nit-picking
