Description

gCalc is a simple and skinnable calculator for Windows Mobile smartphones and Pocket PCs. Especially designed for one-handed use.

gCalc 1.0 Features:

  • Simple, one-hand usage for PPC's with keypad/keyboard and Smartphones.
  • Skinnable (see below).
  • Works well with most popular screen types : 176x220, QVGA portrait, QVGA landscape, Square (240x240).

How to change skin:

You can change skins by downloading any of the sample skins below, or you can create your own (included the Basic skin below which you can use as a template for creating your own customized skins).

  • Just download any of the sample skin files below.
  • Extract the archived file on your pc hard disk.
  • Transfer the folder of the extracted files to the \Skins folder of the application directory (where you installed gCalc).
  • Launch gCalc from your Start Menu, go to About by pressing the right-softkey (Shift) and pressing About (or keypad #8).
  • You will then see all installed skins on your \Skins folder.
  • Choose the desired skin and press [Select].

NOTE: The cab installer is for QVGA/Square devices. If you have a 176x220 screen, you ca download any of the 176x220 skin below. After installing gCalc, don't run it first, do the following:

  1. Download the zip file containing the 176x220 skin.
  2. On your PC, extract the files. It will be inside a folder (by default).
  3. The name of the folder is the name of the skin, for example Default(176x220).
  4. Try renaming the folder, say Default_176. Please don't use any spaces or special characters on the folder. It somehow generates an error.
  5. Transfer the renamed folder containing the skin to the Skins folder of gCalc on your device.
  6. Launch gCalc. Press [Shift] and then #8 (About).
  7. You should see the name of the folder you just transferred on the list of "Installed Skins" listbox.
  8. Choose that skin and press [Select].

Skins:

  • Default(176x220). For Smartphone users who have 176x220 screen resolution, you can replace the default skin of the cab installer with this one. This is similar to the QVGA Default skin.
  • Basic(176x220). For Smartphone users who have 176x220 screen resolution who wants to create their own skin, you can use this as a template. This is similar to the QVGA Basic skin.
  • Default Skin (QVGA/Square). This skin is already included in the cab file.
  • Basic Skin (QVGA/Square). This skin is a template for those who would like to create their own skin. Just change the images and use a text editor like notepad to edit the skin.ini file.
  • ClownFish Skin (QVGA/Square). This is the gCalc skin i used when i was still using the "iPhone" theme. Blends well with my iPhone WAD and Phone Dialer skins.
