Fine for converting lengths.
If converting pints, quarts or gallons, remember it will assume you mean the American (small) measures. Doesn't do hundredweights or tons (or any of the more obscure measures). Does lengths and volumes, but not areas.
Simple to download and very easy to use
As an oldie, could not fault it
Tab design is quicker and easier for me to get what I am looking for.
Not really a con...it's free and handy.....if I could do anything....I'd switch using the compute button for hitting enter.....I am that lazy : )
Very handy to have available on my desktop.
The 'list style' face of your product with many options is a bit fussy. Several of the options would not be 'general use' conversions
'A 'calculator' look - with number keys representing different conversions would be better for general use. A simple weight, length, temp and volume conversion calculator as an option with different numbers representing conversions (eg.1 as km to miles, 2 as miles to kms, 3 as litres to gallons etc) or something similar. I guess with even a limited number of reversed conversions you might need more keys than would be practicable......
It is free and relatively easy to use
No AREA conversion function
It could be much better, but for a free gadget it isn't too bad.
When converting weight, if you enter your initial weight in as kilograms and click compute, the value for ounces is off by a factor of 10...This (kilo to grams) was the first conversion I needed, not good that the first one off the bat is incorrect...I won't use as I don't have time to double check every other combination of entry methods and as such cannot trust the results.

My initial conversion was kilograms to ounces...(I can do kilograms to grams in my head, thank you :) Sorry if that confused anyone.
I liked 1.0, but I wanted the enter key to activate the conversion, so the author updated to 1.1, including my suggestion. How cool is that? The utility is small, loads fast, and calcs instantly. Very nice program, can't beat the price!
Excellent little utility that is extremely light on resources. When converting from miles to kilometers (for example), you also get results in meters, centimeters, millimeters, yards, feet & inches. Converts length, weight, volume, temp, pressure, power, speed & torque. No Windows installation required. Can be run on demand. I use shortcut link from Windows desktop. If you don't need advanced functions, this is ideal.
