Geo-Calc goes Universal
BaldGeeks today released Geo-Calc 2.0, a major update to its comprehensive geometry calculator for Mac OS X that runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary. The software is designed to ease the calculation of common problems such as estimating the quantity of carpet, paint, or tiles required to complete a construction job. Geo-Calc works out the measurements for area, perimeter, sides, and angles of common geometric shapes. Geo-Calc shows a scaled drawing of each calculated shape with a graph paper background in one drawer, while another shows a history of previous calculations. The application also provides a definition of each shape and the different ways to perform the calculations. Geo-Calc supports the ellipse, rectangle, triangle, trapezium, parallelogram, polygon, prism, cylinder, cone, pyramid and sphere shapes. Geo-Calc 2.0 is available for $15, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
