PCalc 4.0 scientific calculator released for Mac
Scientific calculator app PCalc has received an update, released today. Its source code is entirely rewritten from PCalc 3, taking the latest code from its iOS version and porting it back to the Mac version, and writing a brand new modern 64-bit Cocoa app in the process. PCalc 4 features the ability to show multiple lines on the display, including the RPN stack. An optional "Ticker Tape" shows a history of recent calculations underneath the main display, and tape and register windows have been redesigned, and can be torn off from the main calculator and resized. All keyboard layouts from the iPhone and iPad versions are available in PCalc 4, as well as iOS themes, including "Samurai" and "Samurai Night" iOS 7 themes. A free upgrade for existing Mac App Store users, the new version can be purchased by new users for $10. PCalc 4 requires OS X 10.8 or later.
