Recently one of my friends asked what app I was using for calculation and I replied Soulver 3. This not well known enough Mac only app makes it easy to combine calculations with context.
What I Use It For
- Divvying up monthly expenses
- Figuring out running paces for my training plans.
- Price Unit Comparisons
Plus Easy Export Options
Here is an example of calculations I did for items at Costco v. CVS or Target:
Costco Price Comparisons
CVS ProGlide Razors: ($26.49 × 1.5 / 8) = $4.97 Costco Razors: $52.99/16 = $3.31 Target Razors: $47.99/12 = $4.00
CVS Floss: $12.49/3 = $4.16 Target Floss: $13.39/3 = $4.46 Costco Floss: $14.99/6 = $2.50
