Editors' Review

+

The publisher's description for Unit Converter describes the program as a "free unit converter made with an engineer in mind." That may be, but potential users who aren't engineers shouldn't be put off. Although Unit Converter handles measurements like enthalpy and thermal conductivity, it's also a quick and easy way to convert all kinds of everyday measurements.

The program has a unique interface, with 19 different categories of measurement in a list down the left side. Clicking on a category lets users select the original unit of measurement and the unit that they want to convert to. Users then simply enter the value in a box at the top, and Unit Converter displays the conversion factor and the result. Though Unit Converter is capable of converting psi to mmHg and lb/fth to Pas, making it suitable for scientific users, it also covers more commonly used measurements like temperature, volume (handy in the kitchen), weight, and area. The program is pretty basic in its features, but it does allow users to choose custom colors for the interface and to specifiy the font size. There's no Help file, but the program is pretty self-explanatory, as long as you're using units that you're already familiar with. Overall, Unit Converter isn't a fancy program, but it is very useful for scientists, students, and just about everybody else.

Unit Converter installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to everyone.

    "Bug for temperatures conversion"

    March 20, 2012   |   By phuet625

    Version: Unit Converter 1.4

    Pros

    Easy to use and versatile

    Cons

    Bug for temperatures conversions

    Summary

    You cannot enter a negative temperature. For example converting -40 Fahrenheit to Celsius should give -40 C. Although the formula appears OK, the calculator does not let you enter a negative sign.

    "Simple, Easy, Does All the major Units of Anything!"

    January 08, 2011   |   By mastrulo

    Version: Unit Converter 1.4

    Pros

    Not much to complain about. Maybe a more polished GUI apart from that, it's simple, and just works, even the Yanks and Brits are covered (Gallons, Oz).

    Cons

    As I said, just a bit of colour in the GUI, else it's fine. Not been able to fault it as a couple of others, get the 5 odd Ounces wrong. This just has the the right values.

    Summary

    Not much to say, it's one of those apps, that they are just there like the MS Calc, it works for what you need, doesn't try to be a do more than what it set out to do, and it does it well. I would Like to be able to change some font sizes, else it's fine.
