Calculator thought from scratch! Calculate, comment and correct instantly.

What happens if you combine a standard calculator App, a classic desktop calculator and a note App ?

CalcTape brings you the best of these and even more.
It is your companion for all daily calculation needs and easily masters all scenarios you can imagine.
CalcTape is NOT a scientific calculator, but do we need these in daily use ?

Ever did a long calculation with many figures and asked yourself:
"Did I enter the last figure correctly ?"
"The result looks strange somehow !"
With CalcTape you keep an overview, can check all figures and correct figures instantly inplace with
all subsequent results being adjusted automatically !
Missed a figure ? No problem: Just insert it in the right place easily by entering a new line.

You can place the cursor everywhere you like in the calculation: Its like a note where
you can change anything you like in any place with the advantage, that changing numbers
or operators updates your calculation immediately!

CalcTape can be considered an "Excel Lite with a calculator interface".

You can also keep the calculation for your records (documents) and create templates:
Replacing the figures in your template and getting the correct results is a breeze.
Commenting figures and results gives sense to your calculations, so you can understand
what you did when viewing the calculation a month later.
Customize CalcTape to your needs and place only those buttons on your keypad that you really
need everyday. Create your own functions to e.g. add a specific percent rate with a tap on
a single button.

CalcTape features:
- Save your calculations into files
- Create own functions or text snippets to be entered when pressing a button (long press a button to enter the Button screen)
- Create own keypad layouts (change assignment of all buttons except numbers and backspace / change button sizes)
- Select between different keypad layouts (the "function keypad" contains no numbers and is nearly completely customizable)
to get more buttons or other functions, 2 keypads are directly accessible in the main screen
- Share your calculations using standard iOS sharing capabilities, e.g. email
- Sync your calculations with iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC using iCloud Drive.
- Calculate TAX, VAT and other percent values easily
- Use CalcTape for budget, accounting and expense tracking in the office and at home, everyday.

CalcTape, more than a calculator.

- Start a new calculation on the same sheet by simply tapping the "=" key twice.
- Do a long tap on a button to assign another existing function or to create a user function for it.
- If you accidentally hit "AC" you can use "Undo" to get your calculation back.

Pros and cons of CalcTape Paper Tape Calculator app for iPhone and iPad

CalcTape Paper Tape Calculator app good for

Excellent App! But please put the same old classic style as a theme mode.
Like that I can see what I have entered and make corrections, if necessary.
I love this app it meets all my needs. I use it almost daily.
I used to like this calculator but recently keep asking to rate this app even though I have done it and most of the time it freezes so I have to uninstall and install the app again. Whyyyyyy?
This app is great, it syncs and also Im able to label my expenses/income. Def worth the price, the free one is great also but the $1.99 or whatever the pro cost is worth it and I would recommend this to anyone, especially for itemizing...
The interface makes it too likely that youll hit the key to clear everything when youre trying to switch between #s and letters. Relabeling is clunky.

Some bad moments

Was great until the last update now I have an extra space, two zeros and a separator at the end of every equation, why ? The extra when all I need is 375.50 not 375.50 .00 Please fix this ugly look for a simple answer.
I first tested out the free standard version, and I liked it so much I paid for the upgrade. Its TOTALLY worth it. Id give it the five stars if there were folders that would allow me to store the tapes. Other than that, its AWESOME!!
Ive been using this app from the very beginning and always loved the "ten key tape" aspect of it. And the ability to attach notes, and quickly text or email it to someone makes the ability to give my vacation rental quotes to a customer a several second breeze. Thanks for all your fine work on this amazing digital machine.
I dont really understand how this isnt more popular. I love it.
This is BY FAR the best calculator on the market! Incredibly useful and convenient. The editing feature is also what so many others are missing!
best Calc APP on the Market hands down worth 10 times the price. Like a mini Excel Sheet only better and faster. The only thing it needs is Dropbox Sync so some of your more complicated tallies can be shared between your devices.
