Measures Unit and Currency Converter is an iPhone conversion app by German developer Neuwert Media, which includes all of the standard conversion categories but differs from other apps mainly in its interface and usability.
Measures has three scroll wheels (category, converting from, converting to) and numeric touch keys for value selection, it looks like a great tool but after trying Measures out, this interface makes conversions slightly more time-consuming than some other apps like a2zpro or Units. What most other conversion apps lack in comparison to Measures is the calculator function though. With a simple tap of the screen the scroll wheel turns into a full calculator.
Once the units are selected there is a great feature that makes swapping back and forth between them very easy. You simply shake the iPhone and the two units will switch places. There are great ideas in this app. Combined with increased user-friendly handling Measures could be the way to go for conversion apps.
