Measures HD: Unit & Currency Conversion Utility For iPad

by on August 15th, 2011

Measures HD, originally released for the iPhone, has received a new user interface and is now available on the iPad.

Measures HD is a conversion utility that features an extensive list of both unit and currency conversions. The app features a configurable library with over 1000 different units grouped into 40 categories. However, you can toggle off any conversion units that you do not need, making it easier to manage the large list.

While all of the iPhone features are available, new for the iPad app is an unlimited number of conversion favorites and a Wikipedia look-up feature providing additional information for any chosen conversion units.

The following items are the supported conversions:

  • Length, area, mass, temperature, and more
  • Currency and precious metals exchange rates
  • Cloth and shoes sizes
  • Physics: charge, magnetic field and flux, density etc.
  • Engineering conversions: viscosity, radio transmission power, sound pressure, am. wire gauge etc.
  • Data amount conversions including IEEE1541-2002 standard

The app also features a built-in calculator, changeable themes and localization in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, and Japanese.

For a unit conversion app, Measures HD is very good. It is simple to use, has a nice user interface and gives users a good level of customization. Measures HD is available in the App Store for $2.99.
