Works perfect. Easy. Keeps track of last move.
The App works perfect for my needs. I use it mostly for converting cm to inch, USD to foreign currency, pounds to kilograms and for distance. One component I particular like is that what I selected previously stays for the next trip to that icon. Example. Most use is cm to inch. I select the icon with a ruler measure. Set the dial for cm to inch. When I easily, and I do mean easily, select that conversion, the dial stays there until I return again. Very cool.
It also has a fast, one gray button, move to switch the other way around....inch to cm. I tried a few other Apps. This is the best. The selection keys/icons are nice for my fat fingers on an iPad mini.
Gold stars. This one works like promised in the description.
Simple and so useful.
We are building a house in a country that uses the metric system. (ie any place except the US). Such a useful app as we are working with our architects. The currency converter is also a bonus. I paid the $2 because you can hit the ads on the bottom very easily and it can be annoying. If this is an important tool for you, pay for it. This developer deserves it.
Google showed Converter Plus has high reviews and I ordered the purchased version. I cannot even find the basic functions like how many oz in one lb. I then found Units Plus Converter and download the free version - lesson learned from Converter Plus (don't buy before try it first), then I'm really pleased. It's a super smart design. Then I purchased the ad-free version.
