I noticed this app in the Mac App Store, and it seemed like a brilliant idea.The makers of Soulver, Acqualia Software, combined a notepad and a calculator into this brilliant application.
Soulver is essentially a smart calculator that works with words, to put it rather bluntly. As their video on their website suggests, it allows you to do math equations with a calculator, but as you’d think them. Take this for an example: let’s calculate how much it cost if I wanted to take a very bizarre trip to Indianapolis for exactly 49.6 days.
$1,005.93 per flight * 2 flights
$502.91 per night * 49.6 nights
Total = $26956.20
$26956.20 in USD =
It really does work like that. It detects units, and money, and quickly and easily and makes calculating pretty much any everyday equation simple, easy and fun. The only problem I have with this app is really the price. It’s brilliant, but I’m not sure it’s worth the $25 pricetag. Still, it’s an excellent app, receiving 4.5/5.
Now, a quick video, demonstrating what I just showed above. Watch fullscreen!
