Everything but the kitchen sink

Lots of settings, functions quickly, simple interface
Old fashioned design
ConvertIt! Unit Converter for Android pretty much does it all. If there’s a measurement or substance you need to convert, this app has you covered. Everything from radiation to fluid oz; whatever you need. If this app can’t convert it, probably no app does.
ConvertIt! Unit Converter has a very nice and simple design. No matter if you’re a baker wanting to measure and convert recipe ingredients for cookies, or a scientist wanting to convert units of radiation, this app has got you covered. The layout is very clean and streamlined. Simple drop-down menus open near endless choices, all of which are nicely nestled and presented. For all the available choices, this app could have easily been a cluttered mess. However, it does an excellent job of organizing and presenting them all in a very clean and visually pleasing manner.
The paid version is reasonably priced at just 2 bucks, which is frankly a bargain for all this app can handle. And it’s a small price to pay to remove the ads. However, the free version is totally usable as is. I like the ability to save favorites, which is a must, given all the choices this app has. The search tool is also your friend when trying to sift through this exhaustive database of available measurements. These guys literally thought of it all; yes, even currency exchange, though that one is kind of a no brainer compared to all the other advanced conversions available.
If I had any criticism for ConvertIt! Unit Converter, it’s that perhaps the look could be more modern, or maybe there could be more custom options as far as color and font size. But really, that’s all just nitpicking. The app functions beautifully and converts more measurements than most people need. Very nicely done! This is the one and only unit conversion app anyone should even need.
