We all did conversions at school - some of you may even remember the formulas for converting from one measurement to another. But the majority of us haven't got a clue.
With A-Converter it doesn't matter. It lets you convert any unit you can think of into another related unit.
Conversions are split into sensible categories, which in this download are length, area, volume, mass, pressure and time. The registered version has all these and also features speed, force, power and angle.
Select a category and highlight the unit of measurement you wish to convert in the left-hand panel, enter the value to be converted in the top panel, and every possible conversion is instantly displayed in the right-hand panel.
Highlight the converted value you wish to use, click the 'copy to clipboard' button and the value is ready to be pasted straight into another application.
It couldn't be any easier to use, and there are various options for customising the way A-Converter works, including remembering conversion types and launching on Windows startup.
The only downside is that the lists of units are not in alphabetical order.
