Calca is a powerful symbolic calculator that updates as you type giving you instant answers. It solves equations and simplifies complex expressions. It’s also a rich Markdown text editor so that you can explain your ideas alongside your calculations.
Calca is perfect for professionals and students
Anyone who works with numbers and equations. Variables and functions can be created with only a few keystrokes and can be manipulated with a rich library of operators and functions.
Calca updates as you type
Just like a spreadsheet. You can declare variables, edit their values and watch everything update before your eyes. Since everything is calculated on the device – no network needed – you get answers instantaneously.
All calculations are stored as plain text so you can easily share them with other editors and move them from device to device. Calca has been designed to work with iCloud documents so all your devices can access your calculations – you’ll always have the latest files ready for viewing and editing.
Calca comes with a suite of examples to help you get started covering topics from home mortgages to kinetics. All these examples are fully explained within Calca itself.
