New! Count Up Timer for Counting Time (and Money) From Past Event

Count Up Timer Image

A few months ago I became aware that a person dear to my heart was struggling to overcome an addiction to pills and alcohol. Later, out of the blue, I received an email from this person asking if I could create a sobriety calculator to help them track the time they've been sober.

Of course, since I love creating online calculators, and I love the person asking for my help, creating this new calculator was a Labor of Love in the purest sense of the phrase.

This new calculator will not only count up the years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds that have passed since a past date and time, but it can even be set to automatically update the next time you visit the page.

Plus, if the past event resulted in saving or earning money (quit smoking or working on a billable project), the calculator will even count up the money saved or earned.

This explains why I named it the "Count Up Timer" instead of the "Sobriety Calculator", because it can be useful for counting time (and money) for many other types of past events.

If you like the "Sobriety Calculator" and you know someone who is struggling to overcome an addiction, I invite you to share the new Count Up Timer with them.

As always, please use the expandable feedback form beneath the calculator to let me know if you discover any issues and/or have any suggestions for improvements.

Thank you!

-Dan

P.S. The new calculator was also added to the mobile version if you are accessing from a small-screen device, and to the Ad-Free Member Version.

Free-Online-Calculator-Use.com Is Now Secure!

free-online-calculator-use.com https image

Just letting you know that you should now see a green padlock in the address bar whenever you access a web page on free-online-calculator-use.com.

That's because this past weekend, after many weeks of prep work, I converted the web site to "https". This means that all communication between the web site and your web browser will be encrypted.

If you don't see the green padlock, please contact me and let me know the web address of the page I missed.

Thank you!

New Design On Hold Until After Switch to HTTPS

In case you've been wondering why the new design hasn't been launched yet, I thought I'd give you an update.

Just before the planned launch date of the new design (September 30th), I discovered an issue with a Google module that broke the new design. It took nearly two weeks to resolve the issue, but by that time it was too close to Google's HTTPS deadline to launch.

What's the HTTPS Deadline?

Sometime after October 17, 2017, Google's Chrome web browser will start displaying a "Not Secure" message in the address bar for websites not using the HTTPS protocol -- even for sites like mine that don't ask for any sensitive personal information.

This is basically forcing all websites to purchase a secure certificate and to switch the beginning of their web address from "http://www" to "https://www", or risk losing visitors who might get scared away by the "Not Secure" message.

So Why Delay The Design Launch?

As with any big change to a website, there are always unforeseen issues that show up after the change. Therefore I've decided to delay the launch of the new design until after the conversion to https and any https-related issues have been resolved.

IMPORTANT! HTTPS Will Result In Lost Calculator Data!

If you use any of the calculators that allow you to save your entries in between visits, it's important to know that data saved using the HTTP protocol can't be accessed from the HTTPS protocol -- even though the data is stored on your own web browser.

Therefore, if you've saved any calculator entries to your web browser, please visit the applicable calculators and follow the instructions for transferring your data from http to https. Or, at the very least, print out the reports so you can re-enter the data once the conversion to https has been made.

Note that this does not apply to members of the secure, Ad-Free Version.

When Will The Conversion To HTTPS Occur?

I already have the site set up to be accessed by the HTTPS protocol. In other words, you can access the secure version of any calculator by adding "https://" in front of "www.free-online-calculator-use.com" in your web browser address bar.

The next and final step will be for me to turn on a redirect that will force all HTTP visits to go to the HTTPS version. But due to the loss of saved calculator entries that some users will experience, I will delay turning on the redirect for as long as I can.

Please Give Me Your Feedback On The New Design

The good thing about the https conversion delaying the launch of the new design, is that you still have time to offer your feedback on the beta page:

New Design Beta Page

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

-Dan

P.S. Switching to HTTPS means I will lose the social Like and Share counts I've spent 7 years working to earn. Your help in regrowing my HTTPS social Like and Share counts will be greatly appreciated!

New! Millionaire Calculator with Redesign Sneak Peek!

Millionaire Calculator Image

I have added a new calculator to the site for the primary purpose of getting your feedback from a sneak peek at the new design I've been working on since April.

As I posted back in May, the redesign is necessary to allow me to eventually combine the mobile, desktop, and member versions of the site into a single code base.

In turn, this will allow me to spend a lot more time adding and upgrading calculators.

The Launch

I still have a lot of work to do to build the redesign into all of the calculator pages, but I hope to be ready to launch the redesign within the next 2-4 weeks.

This preliminary launch will combine the mobile and desktop versions into one. The final step will be to build the redesign into the member version, which I hope to complete by year end.

What You Can Expect

If you typically access the site from a mobile device, you likely won't notice much of a change. That's because the mobile versions of the calculators are being incorporated into the new design (they already resize to fit any device).

On the other hand, if you typically access the site from a laptop or desktop computer, you will notice a significant change in the calculators and in the site navigation. I hope you find the changes to your liking, but please let me know if you don't.

In either case, the new redesign includes new features for saving entries and notes, as well as features for quick access to your favorite calculator(s). That is, if you are using a newer version of your web browser software.

Older Web Browser Versions

If you are using an outdated version of your web browser software (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, etc.), the redesign and save features may misbehave until you upgrade your browser to a newer version. I sincerely apologize if this is true in your case, but I've held off adopting the required technologies for as long as I possibly could.

Do You Prefer the Old "Desktop" Design?

If you find you like the old, outdated calculator design on the desktop version better than the new design, please let me know. I may decide to link to the old desktop versions from the redesigned versions. However, just know that the old versions will no longer be updated or supported.

As always, please use the expandable feedback form beneath the calculator to let me know if you discover any issues and/or have any suggestions for improvements -- either with the calculator or the new design.

Thank you!

New Design In The Works!

In case you've been wondering why I haven't posted anything new lately, it's because I've spent the last 2 months working to combine all three versions of the website (desktop, mobile, member) into one responsive design.

The Problem: Being a one-person show, trying to maintain three separate versions of 241 calculators leaves little time for creating and improving calculators.

The Solution: Combine all three versions of the site into a single design that will resize to fit the screen of any device, and will accommodate both touch and mouse interaction.

The Plan: I have a new calculator ready to release, so the plan is to build the new design into just the new calculator at at first. I will then ask you to give me feedback on the new design until I get it right, before building it into all of the calculators.

My goal is to have the new calculator -- with the new design -- published to the site by this time next month. I will then post a link here so you to take a look and let me know what you think.

In the meantime I sincerely thank you for your patience.

-Dan

P.S. If you want to be one of the first to see the new design, be sure to subscribe to my Monthly "What's New" Email Update (signup form in right-hand column of all pages).

I just finished my second "How to" video. This one attempts to demonstrate how to use the Lender Loan Balance Calculator.

Click the following image if you wouldn't mind giving me some feedback on the video (please use the expandable feedback form beneath the calculator).

Thank you!

P.S. I also added a mini Negative Amortization Calculator to the page to help illustrate the difference between US Rule and Normal amortization methods.

New! Pregnancy Countdown Calculator with Printable Calendar

Pregnancy Countdown Calculator Image

I created this new calculator to help me keep track of our youngest daughter's pregnancy term, but thought I'd add it to the site in case others might find it useful.

Now, whenever someone asks me how far along she is, I can refresh the calculator and tell them exactly instead of trying to do the date math in my head.

Just enter the baby's due date and this calculator will tell you, in days, weeks, and months, how far along and how long is left in a pregnancy term.

The calculated results also include a due date countdown meter, and a printable countdown calendar -- wherein each date cell displays the days, weeks, and months along and remaining, as well as the date's trimester.

Plus, you can even tell the calculator to remember the due date so the results will automatically recalculate whenever your revisit or refresh the page.

As always, please use the expandable feedback form beneath the calculator to let me know if you discover any issues and/or have any suggestions for improvements.

New! Student Loan Repayment Calculator For Up To 24 Loans!

Student Loan Repayment Calculator Image

This calculator was born out of an email I received from a Financial Aid Director of a large public university who was in search of a good calculator for parents and students to use. Of course, I couldn't resist when she accepted my request for her guidance.

Unlike other online student loan calculators that only handle 1 loan at a time, this new Student Loan Repayment Calculator will handle up to 24 separate loans (up to 4 loans per year for up to 6 years).

The new calculator will accommodate subsidized, unsubsidized, PLUS, and private loans, and allows you to play with the payment amounts to see how much interest you could save by paying more than the minimums.

And for unsubsidized loans you can even choose to begin making principal and interest payments right away, or just interest payments, or have the accruing interest added to the loan balance (interest capitalization).

Finally, you can either view and print a combined loan payment schedule for all loans, or a loan payment schedule for each individual loan.

As always, please use the expandable feedback form beneath the calculator to let me know if you discover any issues and/or have any suggestions for improvements.

Thank you!

P.S. The new calculator was also added to the mobile version if you are accessing from a small-screen device, and to the Ad-Free Member Version if you wish to save your entries in between visits.

New! All-Possible-Combinations Calculator

Combination Calculator Image

Not sure if this calculator will be useful for anyone else, but after receiving the following from a site visitor I just couldn't pass up the challenge of making one that would accommodate the visitor's needs.

I want the 24 combinations for the numbers 9567. I would like the numbers in a list collated with the lowest to the highest. Hope you can direct me to the right calculator.

Done!

This new combinations calculator will accept any combination of up to 6 numbers, letters, or a combination of both (123456, ABCDEF, or 1A2B3C), and then generate a list of all possible combinations -- sorted to your preference.

Why limit the characters to 6? Because any more than 6 characters generates a result with more than 5,000 possible combinations.

Any guess as to how many combinations there are in a 12-character string? If you guessed 479,001,600 ... congratulations!

As always, please use the expandable feedback form beneath the calculator to let me know if you discover any issues and/or have any suggestions for improvements.

New! Downloadable PDF Calculator!

Weekly Time Sheet PDF Calculator

Over the years I've received countless requests for downloadable versions of certain calculators, but the time and expense involved in creating stand-alone software for both Windows and Mac is cost prohibitive for a mom and pop site like mine.

Of course, I knew I could create downloadable Excel spreadsheets to accommodate those requests, but that would require the users to purchase Excel (a complicated and expensive spreadsheet software program) just to use a single calculator. So I've always kept my eyes open for an affordable solution that wouldn't require the user to purchase any complicated software.

About a month ago I stumbled across an article explaining how it's possible to make PDF forms interactive. The cool thing about an interactive PDF form is that the only requirement is Adobe Reader, which is not only free, but many already it have installed on their computer.

After several of weeks of tackling the learning curve, I was able to create the first downloadable PDF calculator. It's called the Weekly Time Sheet PDF Calculator.

As will likely be the case with all PDF calculators, I am offering 2 versions:

  1. Free Demo: Version with limited features, offered primarily so you can make sure the Premium calculator will work on your computer/laptop. Click here to get your "Free Demo" unique download link.
  2. Paid Premium: If the Demo works on your system and you wish to take advantage of its extra features, I invite you to purchase the Premium version for only $2.99 (introductory price). This version comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, plus free upgrades for 1-year.

If all goes well with this first PDF calculator, I hope to create PDF versions of all of the calculators that I've received download requests for.

Thank you!

Update: New Feature Added To Annual Salary To Hourly Pay Calculator!

Annual Salary to Hourly Pay Calculator

On A Salary, But Working More Than 40 Hours Per Week?

If so, then you'll appreciate the new feature I've added to the Hourly Pay Calculator.

If you are getting paid on a salary basis but you are consistently working more than 40 hours per week, you can now plug in the number of unpaid overtime hours you work per week.

The new feature will then search for an hourly wage that closely matches what an hourly employee would be earning when time-and-a-half for overtime is factored in.

This is useful for comparing a salaried-based job opportunity with an hourly-plus-overtime opportunity.

As always, please use the feedback form beneath the calculator to let me know if you discover any issues and/or have any suggestions for improvements.

Thank you!

P.S. The upgrade was also added to the mobile version if you are accessing from a small-screen device.

I Should Have Done This Years Ago!

Ever since launching this website in 2010 I've only had a single form on the site where you could go to offer your feedback.

Sure, it gave you a way send me your feedback, but having a single form created two major obstacles:

  1. You had to leave the calculator page to submit your feedback -- which left you with nothing to refer back to.
  2. You had to figure out how to send me the web address of a calculator you were no longer looking at. Otherwise I wouldn't know which calculator you were referring to.

About a week ago I finally came up with a way to add a unique feedback form to all 236 calculators -- without having to create 236 feedback forms!

At the bottom of each calculator you will now see a button to expand the new feedback form, which looks like this:

Image showing new feedback form

The benefits of this new form are:

  • You can give the calculator a letter grade (A-F).
  • You can easily refer to your entries and results, plus you can even copy from the calculator and paste into the feedback field.
  • The web address of the calculator is automatically included when I receive your feedback, so I will know exactly which calculator you are referring to.
  • The form doesn't require any personal information (name, email, etc.), so you are free to rant, rave, call me vulgar names (I can take it), or whatever, all without me knowing who you are.

Thanks to the above benefits, I've already received more awesome ideas and suggestions in the past week than I've received in the past year!

If only I had done this years ago!

Thank you in advance for your valuable feedback.

-Dan

P.S. This website gets as many as 17,000 users per day, so please forgive me if I'm unable to respond to your feedback directly. Just know that I do read ALL feedback, and that I typically add features based on the most popular requests and suggestions.

First Calculator App Published to iTunes and Google Play!

Calculators available in app stores.

For those of you who've asked for downloadable calculator apps for your mobile devices, I have some great news!

I recently partnered with an app developer to help me convert my online calculators into downloadable apps for Android, iPhone, and iPad devices!

And I am thrilled to announce that we just published the first of many calculator apps to the app stores.

We started with the most popular calculator, the Conception Date Calculator, and will continue publishing calculator apps based on requests and calculator popularity.

I hope you like it!

P.S. I only wish the most popular calculators were those that teach users to achieve the financial freedom to discover and pursue a work they love and believe in. But judging by the most popular calculator, apparently the majority are already debt-free and loving their work! ;-)

Update: Two New Features Added to Paycheck Calculator!

Free Online Paycheck Calculator

I have now updated this popular calculator to include two often requested features.

Printer Friendly Report

The calculator now has a Printer Friendly Report button. Clicking the button will open a dated report showing your entries and results.

Printing the report and comparing the estimated net pay with the actual net pay will help you to adjust future entries so the estimate will be closer to the actual.

Claimed Tips

The calculator now has a row for calculating and entering claimed tips. You can either:

  • Enter the total tips claimed for the pay period.

  • Or, enter your total sales for the period and select the percentage you wish to claim. In this case the claimed tips will be calculated and entered for you.

If you earn tipped wages I think you're going to love how you can now use the calculator to see how changes in percentage of sales will effect your net pay.

As always, please let me know if you discover any issues and/or have any suggestions for improvements.

Thank you!

-Dan

P.S. The updates were also added to the mobile version if you are accessing from a small-screen device.

Custom Keypads Added to Mobile Version

Mobile calculator custom keypad

I recently received several complaints from mobile users stating they could not enter a decimal point into the numeric entry fields.

Well, after researching the issue, it turns out that some makes of Android phones don't include a decimal point in their numeric keypad. What?!

I'm sorry, but I can't even begin to imagine why a phone maker would leave a decimal point out of their numeric keypad. All I can say is, thank goodness the responsible decision-maker doesn't work in a nuclear weapons factory. ;-)

In any case, since this is not the fault of the Android phone owners, I decided to take the time to create and install a custom keypad to all numeric fields in all 236 mobile calculators.

The project took a full two weeks to complete, so I hope everyone now has the ability to enter a decimal point into a numeric field (tap the grid icon next to the field if your phone's keypad doesn't include a decimal point).

Please let me know if you discover any issues with the new keypads, or if failed to include a decimal point in a field that you feel should have one.

Thank you!

-Dan

P.S. If you visit a mobile calculator that you've visited in the past, I suggest you refresh/reload the page to make sure you are using the updated version instead of an older version that may be stored in your web browser software.

New! Semi-Monthly Timesheet Calculator with Weighted Average OT Method

WOT Semi-Monthly Timesheet Calculator

This new calculator is the result of receiving a request asking for a semi-monthly calculator that would accommodate multiple hourly rates, and use the weighted average method to calculate overtime.

Specifically, this calculator will allow you associate any one of up to five different hourly rates to any of the completed In/Out time blocks.

The calculator then will total up the time for each hourly rate, and then use the weighted average method to calculate overtime and gross wages.

As always, please let me know if you discover any issues and/or have any suggestions for improvements.

Happy New Year!

-Dan

P.S. This new calculator also has a mobile version if you are accessing from a small-screen device.
