From balancing your finances to graphing out complex equations, it's always handy to have a calculator around. Windows 10 has a calculator built in, but it isn't as powerful as some tools that are dedicated to more advanced work. Here are the best calculator apps available on Windows 10.
Calculator² has been available on Windows devices for a long time. It has a clean interface with just enough color to improve navigation while also utilizing Fluent Design System elements. More important than its design, it's also a versatile calculator featuring scientific, programmer, financial, and basic calculators. It also has a unit and currency converters.
The app is available for free, but the financial calculator and currency converter require you to pay extra. You can download the app on Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, and Windows Mixed Reality.
Naturplay Calculator is an excellent scientific calculator. It centers on natural writing to simplify the process of creating expressions. There are a lot of little touches inside the app that increase its power and usability. For example, it supports JSON and XML parsing for developers and also has an input panel for matric statistics.
The app is available for free on Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, HoloLens, and Xbox One.
Calc Pro HD - Calculator
Calc Pro HD - Calculator is the most expensive app on this list, but it's also the most versatile. In addition to standard, scientific, and graphing calculators, the app includes everyday utilities like a tip calculator, loan calculator, and a compound interest worksheet. In my opinion, it earns its price tag.
The app also looks impressive. While it doesn't look like the most modern app in UI design, the graph layout and astronomy caclulator are attractive, which is more important for an app like this.
Calc Pro HD- Calculator is available for $7.99 on Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Xbox One, and HoloLens. If you'd like to try a free version of the app you can, as well, though it only supports five types of calculators.
Wolfram Alpha isn't a traditional calculator with a grid layout of buttons. Instead, it allows you to type in queries in natural languages, and then it performs the calculation.
I've been a fan of Wolfram Alpha since my early days at university. It's a useful tool for math and science as well as other types of information. I reviewed the app last year, and it hasn't changed much since then. It costs $2.99
