Full-screen calculator (free and portable)
« on: July 31, 2011, 08:30:23 AM »
Just being informed about the existence of a free, portable and full-screen calculator (redchillicrab.com).

After seeing the screenshots and browsing through its quite extensive manual (direct link), it looks more than interesting enough to share it with the DC crowd.

that's one good-looking calculator app and the dev has an interesting take on calculators.

... most PC calculators are just unflexible simulations of pocket calculators.

RedCrab is a calculator that exploits the possibilities of PC's. Easy to use like a pocket calculator, but provided with full screen editor, which supported corrections, saveing and printing as a word processing program.

thanks for the heads-up, Shades.. :up:

Nice.

It even appears to work under wine :)
