More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

New in version 1.1:
*added new popular units
*fixed issue with decimal input

While you never knew that you wanted to know the number of minutes in the entirety of the 20th Century, you are now offered that sort of brainiac info at the tap of a finger. The Converter offers 16 options for converting everyday units like bits to bytes, meters to inches, and Celsius to Fahrenheit, as well as the not-so-everyday units like newton to dynes and liters to anker. A powerful tool for the aspiring oil baron or the causal cook, the Converter works on a wheel selection mechanic to find your units before switching to the calculator screen to spit out the precious numbers. The Converter’s Aztec design harkens calendars of yore in the 21st Century, which, by the way, will last 52,560,000 minutes.

    Awesome!

    Had to convert pounds-force/in2 to Pascals at work today. Worked perfectly and I didn't look like an idiot.

    Poor design

    Get rid of the silly wheel. Prefer to just select a category and a unit from a list as the "from" and the same for the "to"

    Cool tool to play with

    For 99 cents I can't complain. The dial interface was easy to figure out and I had fun running through various conversion factors. But I am an engineer and like gadgets like this.

    Not useful

    The main conversion I needed was from pounds to kilograms. I can not figure out how to do this and there is very little help for this program.

    Too many potential units

    This converter is good if you have to convert a near infinite number of units into a limited number of subunits. Converting inches to mm is non-existent. True you can do a little math and convert the inches to cm to mm but what is the sense in having a converter. I doubt I will ever convert miles to surveyors chains use the assbaa converter or the fod converter.

    Interface is strikingly unintuitive

    Pretty, but not at all clear or user-friendly. A port of PortableApps' Convertall would be worth the money, this is just a waste of time. Use an online service through the web if you're in a hurry.

    Unbelievably Detailed, yet simple

    Great tool with nearly limitless units. At first the number of units is overwheliming, but you can customize it to show (or not show) whatever you want. As a chemical engineer, I definitely recommend it for a serious user that works in many different unit systems. It even includes uncommon units for density, power, fluids properties, etc. A great buy.

    Maybe

    It can be a useful app, supposedly, if you can figure out how to use it. It took me ages to figure out how to work with it, and even then, it's hard to use because it has unfarmiliar units. Not really what I expected it to be, honestly.
