Units – This is a measurement conversion application with modes for area, currency, energy, temperature, time, length, weight, volume and a bunch more. It is extremely easy to use. Choose the mode, the “from” measurement (i.e. miles), the “to” measurement (i.e. kilometers) and enter the amount. Results are immediate and you can even swap the “to” and “from” measurements with a touch of a virtual button. Exchange rates for currency can be updated on demand and specify frequently used modes via main screen shortcuts. The currency converter is extremely helpful if you travel internationally a lot.
