PCalc, one of the most powerful calculator apps for iOS, has just received another major update. In September last year, PCalc was updated to version 3.0 with a new design for iOS 7 and other improvements. The following November, it was updated to version 3.1 with 64-bit support and more improvements. Now, PCalc has gone 3.2 through its latest update, which, as expected, delivers another round of improvements. First and foremost, PCalc 3.2 features a new core calculator, which has been updated to match that of PCalc for Mac. It also features smart search for conversions, constants, and functions, allowing you to, say, enter "£ to $" to convert pounds to dollars. The update also improves user functions and conversions so that they can now access the RPN stack, use bitwise operators, and get and set values on the clipboard. And in accounting mode, the updated PCalc now shows a double zero key instead of an Exp key, making for more context-aware calculations. PCalc 3.2 also brings the following changes and fixes:
PCalc 3.2 is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $9.99 download. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later. PCalc is featured as a “notable app” in AppAdvice’s Best Calculators for the iPhone AppGuide. See also: Archimedes Scientific Calculator App Goes 2.0 With iOS 7 Redesign And More
