qwikConvert - FREE Fast Unit Convert
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Instantly convert dozens of different units!
With qwikConvert, simply enter the amount and the units you want to convert (e.g. 3 meters) and you will instantly see it converted into other units - without having to specify which one you need. Simply scroll down the list to see your measurement translated: 3.28 yards, 9.84 feet, 0.002 miles, and so on.
Most converters make you select the unit you're converting from, then the unit you are converting to, and then you can enter the amount you want to convert. By converting into a number of other units as soon as you've entered your measurement, qwikConvert gives you your answer in a fraction of the time.
qwikConvert is fast and easy to use, with (hideable) help prompts, and also includes a full user guide within the App!
- Instantly convert dozens of units
- Identify units by abbreviation, symbol or name
- Live Maths: convert from numbers or mathematical expressions (e.g. convert from £(40+27)*1.2); also simply type lists of numbers to add them together
- Fixed Currency Rates: when traveling, you can fix currencies to the rate you actually paid, overriding the live rates
- Conversions are biased to your country ($ means US$ for Americans and CAD$ for Canadians)
- Swap units with a simple tab
- Live daily currency updates download when you need them
- Currency conversions work without an internet connection
- User Guide built into the app, with access to all the units
qwikConvert has a built-in calculator, a feature we call Live Maths, type numbers with +-*/ signs to calculate a number to convert, whether you're adding sales tax or postage to a foreign currency, calculating cooking hours based on the weight of meat, or totaling a list of meaurements ready for conversion into another unit.
Using qwikConvert for currency conversions you will always use a live rate when connected to the internet. However, if you're travelling you can fix the conversion rate to the amount you actually paid for your foreign money, so you know exactly how much you are spending - even if the rate changes while you're away!
qwikConvert also knows where you live (via your system settings, NOT via GPS) - so if you live in the US $ will mean US dollars, if you live in Australia or Canada it will mean your local currency. UK users converting pints and gallons will also easily see past US weights and measures, whilst US users will see UK measures clearly labelled.
