    Hi!
    I have a little question... Is it worth buying PCalc if I already have CalcBot? Maybe someone has experience with both applications. I must tell you that value doesn't matter. I'm one of those people who can spend last money for a new app.

    I was scrolling through and noticed this and the fact nobody replied. I bought PCalc originally on the iOS device. Mainly because Apple didn't have the sense to include a calculator app on the iPad. I've been with them (PCalc) since the start and I personally like it. It's quite robust in my opinion, HOWEVER, I don't need complex complications. The interface is clean which is super important to me. I hate cluttered stuff. Unfortunately I cannot speak to it's ability to do complex stuff. But I do love the "tape" feature. Especially when I'm doing other stuff and not fully paying attention. Now that the default keyboard on the iMac does not include a keypad, mistakes are easily made when you're also watching the TV. I know this is late by a month but I hope it helps.

    Paid PCalc owner here, never even heard of CalcBot. User of an HP 15c since 1989 (still works) and HP 48GX since 1990 (still works and I also still program in Kermit), I live in RPN and a numerical stack, and appreciate the ability to print out results from either my 48GX or PCalc on iOS or macOS. PCalc is on all 3 of my Macs, it's the first non-Apple app I installed on my new iMac Pro.
