Easy to customize--the units
Out of the eight converters I've downloaded, I found it easiest to remove/add units on this one, because I didn't have to go through settings or menus to find the options.
However, there's not enough customization otherwise. You can change the seconday color of the app (pastel red/purple/blue/etc), but neither the text colors nor the main background color (white) can be altered. In my opinion an unwise decision was made to color the text displaying the units in gray, making them rather difficult to see, especially since the font *size* for the unit text is the smallest in the app.
Slighted existing customers
Amount 2 is basically the same as this app - just a way to charge again for the same app. I am a Physicist and I can say there are better apps that provide more commonly used units and are also much more accurately used. This app mixes up categories just because they have the same units but have different meanings. Radiation absorbed and then some that should be Radiation effective is a big example. So is the use of the variants of foot-pounds.
I will not buy your new app after you stopped supporting the people who originally supported you hoping to see your app develop. Don't expect people to keep paying for your "new" apps, i.e. Amount 2, Amount 3 and so on and then leave great reviews so you can charge again and again for the same undeveloped app that went nowhere.
Clean interface, Fast conversion
Clean interface and easy to navigate between pages and categories. I like the idea of having all the conversions in a single page instead of choosing only two different units. It's a clever idea to enter the amount when the program starts, too.
But if there was a description of each unit, it would be better. A single line of description to show when we hold our finger on a unit. For example, people would realize the difference between Kilobyte and Kibibyte and not complain about it.
