What makes this one different?

  • Completely user-customisable using simple text-based files.
  • You don't need a new release to improve the accuracy or add more conversions.
  • You can add, delete or change the following to make it as simple or as complicated as you like:-
    'dimensions' (length, volume, area etc.) (example)
    'units' within a dimension (feet, inches, Km, parsecs etc.) (example)
    decimal handling
  • Powers & additions provide more versatility than usual (example).
  • Included Geometry & Maths 'dimensions', e.g.:-
    cubes
    roots
    areas of circles
    volumes of spheres
  • Easy user-interface with auto-calc & auto-focus options for repetitive conversions.
