Ratings and Reviews
First of all, I've loved the app for years now, so thank you! But, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would appreciate an update to add support for 3rd party keyboards. When using anything like Swipe, Swiftkey, Gboard, etc. you get a rogue garbled number pad that obstructs almost your entire view :(
Quick and easy
I find this program very easy to use and very quick. I only only to enter one unit and all conversions take place simultaneously. I enter in one yard and instantly I know how many parsecs it is as well as how many parts of the earths diameter. Do you want meters, inches, cubits? It’s all there with just one entry. I don’t know what could be simpler. No flash, no sound effects, just results. It’s unencumbered by distractions. It satisfies curiosity. Handy and educational. It lacks one feature that none of the converter apps have which is the ability to enter in my own units. No matter how many conversions an app has, there are always some arcane measures not included. Do any of them include a megalithic yard, for instance? Not that I know of. (2.72 feet) or a day’s journey? (34 miles) How about 366 degrees in a circle based on sidereal time? Minoan foot anyone? I can’t expect an app to have everything but I would like the ability to add what I want.
Appears To Be Abandoned
While the application does function on a basic level, the developer seems to have “abandoned” it. No updates in over two years, and there’s no support (website is dead) for the app.
The “Currency” conversion is essentially useless, because it seems to have stopped updating the exchange rates; mine are seven months old.
