Converter Plus Free
Converter Plus Free by TranCreative Software has to be the must useful productivity app I’ve ever downloaded! This magnificent little tool is a unit converter with a ginormous list of currencies and units in hundreds of different types categories! I don’t know how many times I’ve seen some form of measurement maybe even talking about someone’s height in centimeters (which is just nonsense), and wondered what that would translate into in feet. Obviously, I can figure it out myself with a few Google searches and quick math problems, but I wish I could get the answer with having to do the legwork. That’s what Converter Plus Free does – all the work!
Converter Plus Free doesn’t just convert measurements. It converts almost anything: area, weight, energy, force, length, mass, power, pressure, speed, temperature, volume, bits, bytes and much, much more! Yes, it translates currency, too! That’s an important one for anyone who travels outside of the country often at all. Converter Plus Free has the exchange rates for all 167 of the world’s currencies! They are always current rates, because they get automatically updated every six hours! Want them updated sooner? Converter Plus Free even updates them upon request.
Converter Plus Free is free to download, but there is a paid version that costs $1.99. I haven’t downloaded it, only because I’m very happy with this free version. From the reviews, I hear it’s worth every penny of the two bucks it costs to download! Converter Plus Free is an absolute MUST HAVE APP for the high school chemistry student, the stay at home mom and the world traveler!
