best conversion app - I have used many conversation programs on Mac and many conversion apps on iOS. This is the best in terms of ease of use, many conversions, customisability, clarity/transparency of operation. You can pick the types of converstion you want to see (e.g. energy, area, currency) on the initial screen, called "Favorites". Then within each, you can pick the units you want to see (meters, feet, miles). In both cases, it is easy to add favorite conversions or desired units. Then, for example, when you click on "area", you are presented with all your units and you can fill in any one, e.g. fill in the acres--and all the other values appear, e.g. square feet, hectares, square miles, etc. Essentially, this means you only have to pick one unit of the two you want. This makes the whole conversion process twice as fast. Not as beautiful an interface as Convertbot on iOS, but I'll go for ease of use and getting the job done quickly over artwork any time. Another bonus is that this is available for all iOS devices, and actually make (moderately) good use of larger iPad screen, as well as for Mac. So no more remembering one interface for your Mac another for iOS. If you need to convert units, this is the app to get.
Terribly unintuitive, can’t even get it to convert - I downloaded this based on the 5 star reviews. However, after downloading it, it’s totally unclear how to actually use the conversion tool. I clicked on the help menu, and the page is no longer linked. I then went to their homepage, and there is no support page or instructions. I have no idea how there are 129 5 star ratings on this app. I’m a mechanical engineer with some programming background, so I’m not just a computer illiterate reviewer….although I MUST be missing something. Even if I am, the lack of the most basic help/support guide to do the ONLY function one would download this app for deserves a 2 star.

Best Conversion App, But... - This is the best conversion app available for iOS and MacOS X. Converter Plus has the rare ability to create new units based on existing units through a simple formula feature (no waiting on the dev to add). This alone makes it a 4-star app. However, it heeds to catch up to its iOS counterpart which got a major overhaul over a year ago, and at the top of the list should be the addition of iCloud syncing. If I add my own conversion here, it should show up on the iOS versions as well. iCloud is a mature technology now, so this shouldn’t be a problem. The iOS app has it already (and it works great), so that lack here costs it a 5-star rating. Still, I'm surprised that the iOS blogosphere hasn't caught on to this one. Maybe because TranCreative does its work quietly and competently but without fanfare. It’s by far the best conversion app out there.
simply excellent - This is the swiss army knife of conversion apps. Does it all - currency, temperature, distance, weight/mass, area - you name it, it does it. There’s a mobile version too, for ios. Love it, one of my favorite apps.
Be careful - Converter shows that 1 cubic foot = 7,480.5 US gallons with is 7.4805 US Gallons App developers should verify all conversions and correct.
Missing - Lately I’ve been working with millimeters vs inches and I don’ see millimeters included in the Length-Distance category. The reviews say I can modify or add things but I don’t see where or how to do that. Clicking on Help gives me a “page not found error”.
The best calculating app - This is the second update for my review. I have been own this app for 3 years & I use daily to do my business . This is honestly do most or all the calculation job like sale, shopping, …etc. Just only, there is one thing missing which is the update in IOS app is not integrated Mac app. Additional to that, I wish if there is ability to do some changes in formual like iOS app. Go head & own it. You won’t regret fot it.
