Sponsor: PCalc


This week Six Colors is sponsored by PCalc, a powerful calculator for iOS and Mac. You may have heard some people talking about it this week. That’s cool.

PCalc has been around a very long time—I used it in the Mac OS 8 days, and I still do. But like any great app, it’s grown with the times. In its latest updates, it adds support for key features in iOS 8 and Yosemite. PCalc supports widgets, so you can have access to a complete calculator in Notification Center. (It’s true!)

Even more impressively, it supports Handoff, so you can start a calculation on your iPhone and continue working on it on your Mac. And there’s now a layout editor, so you can create a custom calculator design that perfectly fits your needs.

PCalc is widely considered the best calculator on iOS and Mac, with sterling reviews from sites such as The Sweet Setup and Macworld. If you need a professional-level calculator in your life, PCalc is the one to get.
