AYBO a very nice natural language calculator
After recently discovering natural language calculators like Soulver, I've become a big fan. Yes, macOS has a calculator built in, which is fine, but not so great when you need to repeat a multi-step calculation several times. Or you set up a formula and want to change the variables. That's where these other calculators shines.
I've literally just discovered a new one called, AYBO, which now has a permanent place within my desktop configuration. Soulver 2 is awesome, but has reached the end of its cycle awhile ago. AYBO looks to have a comparable feature set to Soulver 3 and Numi, but at a fraction of the price.
I have no idea what AYBO stands for, but the calculator is quite impressive. As you would expect it boasts features such as expressions and variables:
10 USD + 10 EUR in GBP 50% of (10 USD + 10 EUR) in GBP 10 lb to kg 120 km to miles 60 mph to km/h 12 + sin(pi/2) - 6 / pi Variables HrsPerMonth = 160 RatePerHour = 50 usd Cost = HrsPerMonth * RatePerHour Total = Cost + Cost * 0.05
But things get a little more fancy with time calculations, which are always handy:
now now + 3 hours today today + 1 day
And then things get unusual, yet still impressive with the ability to get weather data, translate words, and define RGB color codes. Unexpected, but very cool!
Colors color red color #235a41 Translations translate to es Water in the bottle Weather and forecast weather in Berlin forecast for Chicago
Are these "calculator" functions? I'm not entirely sure, but they are damn cool! It's incredibly handy to have a single app that can retrieve this kind of information. Frankly, I love it, and AYBO will be open and running on my machine from now on.
If you are looking for a language calculator, AYBO is an awesome choice. It's a great price at just $5. I didn't hesitate to grab a copy. Very glad I did. It works really well, looks to be actively developed, and who knows what exciting features are in store for the future.
