CalcTape (formerly SFR Calculator)
CalcTape is an intuitive piece of software that enables users to easily create and save simple mathematical operations using a basic calculator. It comes packed with some useful options for all user levels.
The installation procedure is rapid and does not require special attention from the user. Once it is done, you can run the app and view a comfortable interface, consisted of a window with a text editor, number pad, and ribbon bar.
So, you can use the num pad to perform math calculations, as well as add and subtract taxes (10%). Unfortunately, it is not possible to insert new buttons with custom properties in the free edition of CalcTape.
Text can be copied, cut and pasted, and it is possible to undo/redo actions. Furthermore, a search function is provided throughout the entire document. Projects can be printed or saved to CALC format. Unfortunately, there are no exporting options available (e.g. to DOC, PDF, XLS).
As far as settings are concerned, you can specify the number of decimals and indentation to take into account, as well as enable or disable round results. There are multiple styles, paper colors and languages available for the GUI. Plus, CalcTape can be set to automatically run at system startup and to minimize to the system tray area.
The tool runs on a very low amount of CPU and RAM, so it does not hog system resources. It has a good response time and instantly makes calculations. We have not come across any issues in our tests, since the tool did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs.
All in all, CalcTape is a helpful piece of software for any users who want to make simple math calculations and save progress to file.
