Full Specifications

What's new in version 1.1

  • Text in all Measure windows is now smoother.
  • You can now enter a value and ask for it in specific units, all in one step, using "as" or "in". Examples:
  • 2 hours as minutes
  • room temperature in fahrenheit
  • amount of water of earth's oceans as acre feet
  • 18 inches as feet
  • "Convert" is smarter about which units to include in the results, taking the value into account. It generally includes any unit where the displayed value will be between 0.001 and 1,000, and any unit whose scale is within a factor of 1,000 of the original unit.
  • Measure chooses simpler units for results (in Best Units, and when finishing a computation). For example, the result will no longer be expressed as "dollar percent" or "dollars per percent", and "5 volts * 2 amps" is just "10 watts".
  • Visual comparison bars: "Too large" messages now have red ellipses after them to fill in all the space, so they "look" large (for example, try "populations").
  • The database is expanded and updated.
