As soon as I downloaded Unit Converter, I knew I was going to like it.

Its simple and intuitive interface allows you to quickly convert just about any number or unit into another. The app’s slot machine styling and interface is also a nice touch.

For someone who is terrible at math and always asking how many feet are in a yard (three), this is a handy piece of software for your iPhone.

Unit Converter, from Concrete Software Inc., has an impressive array of options for conversion. You can convert everyday units — length, temperature and time — or units you might not use as often — dynamic viscosity, energy potential and angular speed.

This app delivers exactly what you’d expect from it, without making the process confusing or painful. Its built in updating feature allows for the most recent rates to be downloaded for 75 currencies, which is very useful for travelers. Being able to customize it to have whichever conversion you’d like show up first is also an added benefit.

Even though Unit Converter is $1.99, it’s worth the money. The iTunes App Store has several other converter apps, but you more than get what you pay for with this easy-to-use tool.
