Welcome to 'Paul's Featured Apps', where I pick one of my favourite apps as featured app of the day! Today's app is...

handyConverter

What they say

handyConverter gives you the most easy and direct way to convert units.

* 1600+ most common units.
* Speech search.

PS: This is a standalone component of handyCalc. If you already have handyCalc, you won't need to install this.

What we say

Brilliant unit converter! Straightforward yet effective UI and with over 1600 units, it's probably going to do what you need!

Permissions

I'm a massive fan of handyCalc - made by the same dev, and does everything handyConverter does but with 5 bajillion extra features :huh:

Another great app for this type of thing is Unit Converter - Android Market Link

Very nice UI with in-built calc and 15 categories to convert from. Recommended.

That's not free, though. I don't really see the point of paying for a converter application unless it has a unique selling point. Personally, I use ConvertPad which works well, although I haven't compared many other similar products to judge.

I use Unit Converter Lite.

Maybe not that fancy, but it requires no permissions, takes very little space and does everything I require from a converter app. I love it when apps do what they should, take no space, and requires no permission. No bloat ftw!

But this one looks interesting and might give it a try.

Also a huge fan of this - for me this should have been the featured app.

This is a fantastic app, which I have long had on my iPhone. When I bought the Monte Carlo I was pleased to find the Android version.

some free apps can help to convert, but it is slowly and not very good. i used to convert large amount of video files to mp4 by an apps, and it is fast and with high quality. You can look here to follow the guide to convert avi to mp4 in few steps.
