Part of my top NEED TO HAVE APPS...
On all builds of computer…mac or pc…I need to have several things. A means to calculate, calendar, conversion, prompt/terminal, note app, dictionary, password generator, password manager, music player, and finally map app or GEarth. Those are the just for day to day…not to mention a list for specialied tasks and the like. MY day to day list will never be without this app on my Mac…as it has proven it’s worth time and again when I lack metric conversion skills, weather conversion, and just being there for those odd times that seem to pop up when you want to understand more about what you are dealing with at that time…an invaluable tool for me and as important as having a dictionary handy.
Works well, simple to use, free
Not much more I can say about this app. The one thing I havn’t verified is the currency conversion. In my experience with several different methods, there’s always either a bit of a lag between the price you see and the current exchange rate, or the exchange rate you see is not quite the same one your bank/CC company will charge you. It is, however, perfectly fine for rough calculation if you find that cute little knick-nack from Denmark on eBay that you just have to buy. I keep it in my task bar for ready use.
Nice to have quick access to a good converter
The only issue I've been having is that the app auto launches and opens its window when I start my Mac or wake it from sleep. It would be better if the icon just remained in place until I actively selected it. Also, I was prompted to rate the app when I woke my Mac. At least wait until I use the app before requesting a rating. Hopefully the next version will fix these annoyances. As a converter, it's a good app, but would be nice to include an option to create custom conversions. As an Engineer, it does not convert all that I would use it for.
