This cross platform, open source calculator calculates almost everything and performs easy unit conversions like length, weight, currency, percentage, temperature and more.
Caligator does calculations and unit conversions with a twist - it interprets what you're calculating and displays the results as you type and looks great while doing it.
It looks like Numi (free right now) for the Mac. The developers liked the Numi interface and were inspired to create a similar cross platform open source app.
The app is in prerelease right now, so features are limited. New features coming up in the next few weeks include font size preferences, export options, click to copy and more themes.
I've been doing quite a few conversions using it and so far everything is accurate. The dark theme is not working in Windows at the moment, that's been submitted to the developer.
Windows users might need to run Caligator as admin to be able to input data (right click on the desktop icon and choose Run as administrator). Caligator can be be maximized on your screen by double clicking anywhere in the calculator when it's open. Double click again to return to the original size.
This isn't an advanced scientific calculator but if you do a lot of converting of everything from millimeters to cooking conversions and basic math calculations it's quite useful. If you're looking for a calculator where results aren't crucial that has a beautiful, easy to use interface, give Caligator a try.
