Want to convert a square mile into hectares? Maybe you need to know how many Botswana Pulas are in a Chilean Peso? With the Units app such unique conversions are possible and easy to do too! The app features roughly 250 possible units for conversion which can all be used with a few taps on the screen.

The Units app looks and works just like a regular calculator with the exception that it asks the user to select the proper Mode before entering the units to convert. The Mode screen asks the user to select from large array of options that includes Area, Currency, Energy, Time, Power, Pressure, Speed, Temperature, Typography and more. It then breaks these down into the specific units in question, and can reverse the calculation with a single command.

There is also a very handy Compare screen that automatically appears when the device is placed in the horizontal. This will generate all units in a specific category with the selected unit highlighted for easy reference. All measurements are stored in the app, and the currency rates will update automatically each day if this option is selected by the user.

There are other conversion tools and apps, but the Units app seeks to be the most comprehensive, up to date, and easiest to use of them all.

The cost for the app is $0.99, and any updates are available at no additional charge. It functions with iPod Touch and iPhone devices.

If you need a quick and wide-ranging tool for converting a variety of different units, this is the app to download right away.
