In a lot of the country, we are anticipating the summer weather. When it’s nice out there are people building things around the house.

The list this week is all about the different apps for the handyman or the DIY weekend project. Let’s take a look at what’s out there to help get the project done right.

Handyman Calculator

Handyman Calculator is a huge help when it comes to any construction project. A lot of people underestimate the amount of planning when it comes to construction. This apps will give you a whole list of different calculators to help with calculate anything. Some of the calculator are square footage, fraction calculator, lumber and asphalt calculators, Drywall calculator, Carpet Calculator, Paint Calculator and a lot more.

Magnetic Stud Finder

One of the tools I have needed from time to time and never seem to be able to find is a stud finder. The way this finder works is by looking for the screws or nails holding up the studs. By starting near the floor about 5 or 6 feet from the corner of the wall might be the fastest way to find one. If the drywall is a little thicker, this app may have a harder time finding the stud. But hey, the app is free and worth a try.

RationalCalc Free

When there is a need for a simple fraction calculator, RationalCalc Free should do the trick. While the idea is simple, the app is powerful. When building something or in machining, there is a need for pretty accurate measurements and calculations. This easy to use calculator is will let you round up or down to the nearest common fraction (e.g. 1/4 or 1/8). not many calculators will do that.

CalcPro Review

CalcPro Review

Nov 13, 2012

In my quest for convergence, I have tried many a utility on my smartphone. As I often say, if I can do it well on my phone, then that’s where I want it done.

CalcPro: welcome to the party.

CalcPro is a tidy piece of software from carlosg that promised to make me do away with ancient artifacts like standalone scientific calculators.

The opening user interface is deceptively simple; at first blush, I thought it was simply a calculator clone that was maybe a bit too ambitiously named by its developer. Underneath the unassuming hood, though, was an app that truly packs a mathematical punch. Yowza!

Simple monochromes welcomed me in. With a simple number pad, I initially wondered how I was to solve more complex equations. A simple swipe in either direction answered that query. To the left were more functions: square, trigonometrical functions and more. There was a list of pre-populated constants with one-touch entries for Plank’s constant, Euler-Mascheroni’s Number, and, of course, the never ending pi.

To the right was a set of Tools, which included an Equation Solver, a mini tool for different types of interpolations, a unit converter and a beta equation plotter. Even more impressively, it had a built in Wolfram|Alpha answer engine functionality, allowing me to type in search terms directly into the WA site. The unit converter had a nifty currency exchange tool that not only converted six major currencies, but which also had the exchange rates that could be updated from within the app.

I was able to customize decimal places, angle units, and what type of coordinate system to use with specific numbers. The program was able to handle most of the equations I tossed at it, and the memory program was topnotch. I was able to input previous solutions into current equations, and things like variables were able to be recalled as well. The handy erase tool cleared up previous entries quite well.

All in all, I thought the settings could have been a bit more refined, but even that small complaint pales in the light of its overall functionality. The built-in Help tool also had value.

CalcPro proves that well-designed products can — and do — come in simple packages.
