Good, but some room for improvement
Out of over 20 Conversion Apps I've tested recently, "Handy Convert" is not bad, but it could be better. MY PROS: * Accurate results in 3 of 5 of my essential test conversions: mile/inches, gallon/teaspoons, temp * Has 8 of the top 11 most common/essential categories, plus it has a special "Cooking" category * User-interface is fairly easy to use * Simply scroll the wheel to see additional conversion results * Has been updated in the past 90 days, indicating that the developers may remain committed to it * FREE! (Also, there is $0.99 Pro version available with more categories and units) MY CONS: * Missing 3 of the top 11 most common categories (missing "Data Storage," "Energy," "Power") * Inaccurate results in 1 of 5 of my essential test conversions: acre/sq. ft (off by 0.1 sq. ft.) * Deviant result when converting "stone" to "ounces," since it says 1 stone=12.5 lbs (other apps say 14 lbs) * Does not retain most recent conversion entry for each category, even within the same session * No ability to hide unwanted categories or units * No ability to add additional categories or units (like myConvert and a2z Pro) This app needs some improvement, but it certainly shows some promise.
Easy to use!
Amazing! Really easy to use. Great for cooking and other daily around the house needs. Also helped out a lot when traveling in Europe this summer! Great app- simple graphics and tools- but you can't beat it for the price. Tried other apps just too complexed and didn't offer as many options. Hope you enjoy it and use it as much as I do.
I love this app! I use it everyday at work finding out inches to millimeters and vise versa for customers buying sockets.
What would make this app complete would be data conversion for computers. I would love this app even more if it could convert bytes into kilobytes and so on.
Right now I have the free version but if they added data conversion I would definitely buy the pro.
