iCalcy

Editors' Review

by   / November 10, 2009

iCalcy, in addition to being very cutely named, is a calculator and looks and behaves exactly like the calculator available on the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch, with one exception; all of the buttons on the Apple version of the calculator actually work.

The program's interface consists of a sleek and accurate reproduction of the Apple calculator, with an arrow that allows users to switch between portrait and landscape orientation. The portrait orientation gives users access to basic calculator functions; numbers, operators, and basic memory features. The landscape orientation displays the calculator's expanded scientific features, but unfortunately, none of them work. Clicking on any of these keys results in a pop-up asking for donations to support the further development of iCalcy. At first we were dismayed that the program does not come with a Help file to explain these more advanced options, but once we realized that the calculator doesn't actually contain these features--at least, not yet--we didn't really figure that it mattered. Overall, iCalcy is an attractive replica of the Apple calculator, but until it fills out its features, it's not much more than a pretty face.

iCalcy is free. It comes as a ZIP file and runs after extraction with no need for installation. We recommend this program with reservations; as long as you don't need its scientific features, it's fine.
