Unit Converter Plus is a simple and friendly unit converter with a clean user interface.  Unit Converter Plus has everything you loved about the original Unit Converter and a whole lot more.  Some of the new feature include:

Features

  • Currency conversions for 165 countries ( vs 60 in the original).
  •   The ability to create custom units for nearly every category(**) ( so if a unit is missing and you know the conversion factor you can add it yourself). (**) there are a few categories that do not currently allow for custom units... please email me if you have questions.
  •   A new Calculator section with a Tip Calculator and a simple 4 function calculator.
  •   GPS - Latitude/Longitude converter with the ability to show the point on a map.
