Calculator² is now a universal Windows 10 app in the Windows Store

A few weeks ago, the popular Windows Phone Calculator² got a big update to version 4.0 with lots of new features and a full code rewrite. Now its developer Richard Walters has updated the app again to version 5.0, and it is now a universal app made specifically for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.

Aside from that, the only other new feature in Calculator² version 5.0 is that the app can now be run in a window on the Windows 10 desktop for the first time. Just in case you are unfamiliar with its features, here's a rundown:

  • Over 50 scientific functions
  • 125 mathematical and physical constants
  • Over 150 World currencies
  • Over 200 units for conversions across 26 categories
  • Statistical functions for memory values
  • Calculation history
  • Customisable tax buttons
  • Auto, Fixed point, Scientific, and Engineering display formats with choice of digit grouping
  • Enable or disable operator precedence
  • Keyboard support + Live Tiles

While Calculator² is a free app, some features like its recently-added Financial calculator are only available via an in-app purchase.

  • You mean I can get a calculator on multiple devices now? This is amazing!
  • Made possible by the awesome power of Windows 10! :)
  • Actually, in this case, yes it is.   This is a great app and way more functional than the stock calculator. That I can now use it on my phone, tablet and desktop and have the same UI everywhere is very nice.. 
  • app is not actually 5.0 ,its showing 4.2.1 on my phone even after current update.
  • I'd really appreciate if speed crunch comes to Windows phone.
  • This is a big deal, this app is great! The developer has been very active over the years. Congrats to him for migrating to universal.
  • I like the fact that every writer at windowscentral is now deleting my comments from all posts. This shows the respect and power of truth. Truth wins... Yeah
