Moffsoft Calculator can replace the calculator that is built into Windows as it includes a lot of other features. As most applications of this type, this one has been designed to resemble a real handheld calculator; so, it is quite unlikely that anyone has problems to use its basic features. However, some people may have difficulties performing financial operations, unit conversions and product pricing calculations.
The most distinguishing feature of this tool is probably that it has a tape in which all your operations are printed. Fortunately, the results can be printed on paper or saved in such formats as TXT, XLS, RTF, HTML, and PDF. In addition, you can use the calculator for financial operations, like determining the interest rate, cash flow, depreciation and time value of money. Similarly, the program also permits converting between units of length, temperature, currency, volume, weight, etc. Not only that, the tool supports time/date calculations as well. Finally, it can also help you do the math involved in product pricing, based on profit margin and markup or markdown.
The graphical user interface of the calculator can be customized to meet your needs and preferences. In this regard, it is very convenient that there are various visual themes to choose from. Moreover, you can even create your own themes. Likewise, you can simplify the tool by hiding those buttons you never use. Unfortunately, part of the toolbar cannot be seen when you hide the tape.
All in all, Moffsoft Calculator is a great option, particularly if you frequently perform calculations other than just adding and subtracting. Unfortunately, it still has some minor bugs, which are even mentioned on the developer´s webpage. For instance, it cannot restore the windows position when multiple monitors are used, the keyboard keys may not function properly on some types of keyboards and some keys are not properly recognized with particular regional settings. To conclude, although Moffsoft Calculator is shareware, there is also a free product by the same developer. So, it is a good idea to check on both products before deciding to spend any money.
