Sacramento, Ca (August 1, 2017) --The Law Office of Richard Montarbo (MontarboLaw.com) announced that the CompCalc for Windows 10 users will be available for FREE TRIAL DOWNLOAD at the Windows Store beginning August 1, 2017. The CompCalc Windows rounds out the CompCalc family of California Workers’ Compensation Rating Tools developed by Montarbo, which includes versions for the iPhone/iPad & Mac Computers available at the App Store, and Goggle/Android devices at Google Play.
When asked about the development and testing, Richard Montarbo said, “oh we put it through a full battery of computer and user testing, but because the algorithms are the identical to other versions which have an extensive install base, we feel confident the CompCalc Windows will perform flawlessly…and there is no risk since we are offering it on a free trial basis”. Montarbo added, “the Windows 10 version is written using the new ‘Universal Windows Platform’ (UWP) which takes full advantage of the enhanced speed and advanced graphics of Windows 10.” “This was my first involvement with Microsoft and their App Developers’ Support Division, and they were amazing in all respects,” commented Richard. “Given the complexity and magnitude of the project I could not have completed it without my Development Team and the CompCalc Beta Test Team”, added Richard.
When pressed on his for goals for the CompCalc Windows, Richard replied, “My focus with the CompCalc Windows is the same as with earlier versions…make it intuitive and simple to use, but inexpensive to own…you know like our tag line…‘The Complex made Simple…’.” “The biggest difference between the CompCalc and other rating tools,” said Richard, “is ease of use and once installed, there is no need for the internet…that means fast, stable calculations without data usage charges”. “The coolest part for me as a programmer/developer was the improved graphics, which includes 3D and animation, a part of the UWP in the Windows 10 environment”.
