One of the recent surprises that some time ago would have happened as the crazy dream of a summer night is the one that made reference to the arrival of the popular calculator of Windows to iOS and Androoid thanks to the release of it in mode of software free.
Yes, you have not misled. The words open source and Microsoft in the same sentence are possible and examples we have seen in recent months. So with these wicker on the table it is time to talk about the Microsoft calculator, which now returns to the front page with news.
The Calculator Windows, now available in open source format on GitHub under the MIT License, comes to iOS and Android, but it is also loaded with improvements, fruit of the unusual expectation that the news has aroused between media and users.
It has been Dave Grochocki, who among other functions, has been Senior Program Manager at Microsoft for NotePad and Calculator, who through his account Twitter has announced that the Calculator Windows you will receive two interesting utilities.
To facilitate the use of it, the popular tool will have a format of Mini calculator and also with an Always on Top mode. That said, it should be clear what each of the additives consists of.
One of our top requested #WindowsCalculator features is the ability to keep Calculator on top of other windows as you work — you'll soon be able to do just that! 😁 Also, tiny calculator !! https://t.co/AEqu4nkhb4 #BuildTogether pic.twitter.com/TJpkXrRIL4

By these improvements you can get the calculator to remain in sight above other applications, facilitating its use, as a floating app. And to avoid discomfort and to cover or obstruct the viewing of data on the screen, this will be resizable, so that users can give it the size they prefer at any time.
Regarding the availability of such improvements, Grochocki said they would arrive soon, but without specifying a moment in time, so we will still have to wait.
