iPhone/iTouch App: Convert Units

Submitted by on August 25, 2010 – 12:38 pmOne Comment

Too bad iPhones, iTouches and iPads wouldn’t fly as scientific calculators in school, otherwise it would just be too easy. Converting units doesn’t necessarily stay within the school walls though; eventually you’ll need to know these things for real life situations like, “how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon? How many megabytes are in a gigabyte? What is 20 degrees Celsius in Fahrenheit? Or even, how many light-years are in a parsecs? Things of that nature.

For students and non-students alike, there’s a useful app for us: Convert Units. Thanks to Free The Apps, it’s free! It has a simple interface with hundreds of unit conversions.
