What's New in Version 1.2.1
- Fixed display issues on iOS 5
I'd been looking for a currency converter and the breadth of Units appealed to me immediately. This app packs an amazing amount of utility! Easy to use interface, extremely elegant design. Just one issue: the results display font styling is rendered with a soft diffusion filter. I prefer the crisp font rendering in the other display elements. I looked for settings to change the font styling but couldn't find it. One little quibble on an otherwise tremendously well designed app. Great job!
Support for RPN?
Simple and intuitive UI and I like the easy to read font. Could you please considering a setting to make the calculator use RPN? I don't know of any converter app that supports RPN and it seems like that would be a big selling point if yours did. There are lots of scientists and engineers out there who use RPN calculators.
Comprehensive, works great
Thankfully, no Las Vegas-style inertialized spinning menus. Has every unit I need and some I never thought of. Fast, flexible, easy. Currency exchange rates agree with the Web tool I use. If it let me to define and save my own little-known units, there'd be nothing left to desire.
