New Calc98 Version 5 for Windows and Windows CE - popular Windows calculator can now be carried in your Pocket PC
SHEFFIELD, England, June 22, 2001 - Flow Simulation Ltd. announces the availability of its calculator application Calc98 Version 5 for the Windows and Windows CE operating systems.
Calc98 is a scientific calculator with extensive scientific/engineering, statistics and financial functions. In addition it has a very comprehensive range of units conversions and physical constants and properties. Amongst the many enhancements the new version introduces improved user customisation, matrices and arrays, and new display modes, as well as a built-in periodic table of the elements.
A spokesman for Flow Simulation said “We have been working on the Windows CE version since the operating system was in beta back in 1997. We feel that with Pocket PC, the PDA’s time has now come. The hardware is good enough to support more powerful mainstream desktop Windows applications like Calc98 which would otherwise require a PC or dedicated hardware.”
About 200 beta testers have been using the software for the past two months. The company report that they “made some pretty major changes based on their feedback, but tried to keep the look and feel of the earlier version”.
Since the original Calc95 was released about two million users have downloaded the software in most countries of the world. Calc98 gained a five-star rating from ZDNet’s reviewers and appeared in the top 50 downloads, and was a “People’s Choice” in the 1998 SIC Awards. The software is particularly popular with professionals in science and engineering, medicine, schools and financial services.
Now they can continue to use the software even when they are away from the desktop.
Flow Simulation Ltd. has provided engineering software and consultancy since 1982 and is based at the Sheffield Science Park, Sheffield, England. It has received UK Government awards for technology innovation. Company website: www.flosim.com.
