icon comparisonI’m still finishing off the list of built-in apps, and the latest is Calculator. It’s not the best-known app in OS X, but as there is a direct equivalent on iOS, I thought it was only right to give the Mac icon a redesign too. This one borrows elements from the iOS app itself, as well as the icon that represents it in iOS 7. The new Calculator features squares of simple colours with thin text and a easy-to-understand readout, and that’s what I’ve recreated here.

calculator-in-dockI’ve been trying to keep similar shapes uniform across the range of icons, so the rectangle here is pulled directly from the Mail icon and adapted to fit with the Calculator design. I ended up giving it a black outline to help it stand out a little more in the Dock, and putting pi on the display because…well, why not?

You can check out the other designs in the iOS 7 Mac icon project below, get Candybar from here to help with applying the icons, and get the Calendar design at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
