PCalc 1.1 for Apple TV is out!


Fractionally improved...

This release adds support for tvOS 10, including an automatic dark theme option. There's also a new "Fraction" display mode that shows the closest fraction for the current decimal result.

You should get the new version automatically, but you can also search for "pcalc" on the store to download it. New versions are also available for iOS 10, watchOS 3, and macOS Sierra.

Hope you like it. Get in touch at @jamesthomson or send me an email!

18th March 2016

PCalc 1.0.3 for Apple TV is out!





The first thing you'll notice are the new icons, designed by Frank at I've unified the design of all the icons across all the different platforms PCalc runs on. The old icons were gettng a bit tired and didn't fit in as well with the OS, especially on the Mac, and these are modern and easily recognisable.

This release also brings a number of fixes and improvements, like the ability to specify E notation for the main display rather than using superscript numbers, and it makes the behaviour of the delete key more sensible when you are dealing with decimals and exponents.

It also brings the core code up to date with PCalc 3.5.3 on iOS. The full list of changes is here. Hope you like this update!

Love or hate the new icons, let me know what you think at @jamesthomson or send me an email!

11th November 2015

There's an update available now which adds full game controller support! And not just letting you navigate the existing UI with a controller, it has a whole new slick circular UI which you operate with the joystick.

Here's a quick demo!

Are these ∏ menus?

To get it, just search on the Apple TV for "pcalc". Hope you like!

30th October 2015

PCalc is now available for the Apple TV!

They said it couldn't be done. They said it shouldn't be done. But I went and did it anyway!

Yes, it's PCalc for the Apple TV. It's optimised for use with a remote and has many of the features from the parent iOS and Mac apps including an optional RPN mode, multiple layouts and themes, and full speech support.

It's currently only $1.99 in the US - the price varies in other countries, but similarly low. It doesn't have every feature yet - no tape or unit conversions for example - so I've priced it appropriately for now and I may increase the price as more things get added. I had consider making it a Universal Purchase with the main iOS app, but because you can upgrade PCalc through an in-app purchase in the free PCalc Lite as well, that would have excluded those people from getting hold of it.

So, the fairest thing to everybody - and fair to me, the developer, as well - is that I've made it a standalone app.

To buy a copy, just search on the Apple TV for "pcalc" - select the icon that appears and it will take you directly to the App Store page.


Let me know what you think and what you'd like to see added next - I'm always open to feedback and feature requests!
