Correction to my review, no nefarius activity deteted 04AUG2013. Correction to my review, upgraded from 1 to 5 stars. The developer challenged me to reassess CONVERTER so I downloaded and re-installed it. I then ran AppBrain Ad Detector and WakeLock, and this time, there was no nefarious activity detected. I do see their latest update is 31JUL2013, perhaps this update solved the problems I experienced previously. I do like this converter as the interface is simple and effective.
A must have for many uses, professions, interests and hobbies. I use this all the time. Running, cycling, driving? Want to convert Distances? Easy peasy. Easy peasy. Are you a chef, A gym user or on a diet and have trouble with Weight conversions? Easy peasy. Or how about a meteorologist or a scientist who needs temperature conversions. There are literally thousands of applications for this application... Sure, its a bit rough around the edges, The UI is a bit meh - but who really cares when it covers so many bases.
Annyoing pop up ads! Tried to enter data to convert, and a pop up ad asking to buy stuff on Amazon came up! That's an instant uninstall. I know the makers need to get paid but it shouldn't get in the way of using the app.
Thorough, but... The only criticism I can make is when converting weight to Stone, the result is shown decimal & not Stone + lbs. Otherwise, a well written & visually simple app: good work!
Non decimal measurements It's great that it has feet and inches as 6.2 feet means nothing at all - but 6'3" makes sense - yet they are the same. But it needs the same thing for pounds and ounces as 11.9 lbs is meaninglessness but 11 lb 14 oz makes sense. It would be good if the app could be amended to incorporate this - and also to include a stones, pounds and ounces, facility too.
Just works fine I use this a few times each month, and have had no problems - fast and easy. Never found the ads all that annoying, but maybe I choose to save my annoyance for things more important.
