Product Announcement – schoettler Software of Cologne, Germany has released CalcTape 1.2 for MacOS. When it comes to adding long columns of numbers, doing complex calculations or playing around with mathematical what-if questions, a normal calculator does not offer one very important feature – a log function.
CalcTape Calculator turns the Mac into one of those classic adding machine that feature a paper roll – and can still be found in many offices. CalcTape naturally masters the four basic arithmetic operations as well as percentage calculations, exponentiations and various other calculations. The individual numbers and arithmetic commands are easily recorded by using a virtual keyboard.
The special feature of the app: all entries are being recorded on a virtual paper roll. This way all numbers can easily be counter-checked, in case the result does not meet the expectations or there is a suspicion that a number has been entered incorrectly. Even better: all figures may be modified at a later point in time and subsequently the entire calculation will be updated. This way corrections as well as what-if calculations are easily accomplished.
CalcTape saves individual calculations, names them and is able to open and display them at any point in time. Additionally, templates may be created for repetitive use and open calculations may be sent to business associates via e-mail. Store your calculations to iCloud Drive to use them also on your iPad or iPhone easily.
Another unique feature of CalcTape: Users can program individual keys. This, for example, could help to simplify the implementation of easy tax calculations, getting them done with the push of a button. The keyboard layout are being saved by the app, which also has the capability to work with variables.
