Nice app!

Any chance you could add an option to round up/down to however many decimal places?

Thanks!

This is a nice, clean little app. I like the ability in options to include/exclude various units of measurement. I love the esoteric selection (Firkins!) and was going to suggest you add even more. Then I noticed the individual category settings... you pretty much packed everything in there. Impressed, I am.

The swipe to change units/categories works very well and the app overall does very well to avoid unintentional unit changes. It might be nice to have an option to enable simple (short) click to change units/categories for those situations where you have many different conversions and aren't subject to the horrors of random-click FUBAR. My only other suggestion would be to add a dark theme for the iOS haters, and frankly, light text on dark background is just easier on the eyes.

Overall this is the cleanest unit converter I've seen. While the Google search bar will duplicate most of these functions, it requires network access, and doesn't always work if searches aren't typed just right. I always keep a unit converter app on my phone and this is definitely the new contender.

Strong work, dev. Looking forward to future releases!

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but for me, this would give it the finest set of pearly whites. I use these for electronic compass applications at work. I understand if it's of no use to anyone else though. A wise old co-worker once told me that 'we as engineers are not demographically significant'.

Thanks!

Scientific units/Magnetic field:

From Wikipedia (Tesla)

1 tesla is equivalent to:
10,000 (or 104) G (gauss), used in the CGS system. Thus, 10 G = 1 mT (millitesla), and 1 G = 10−4 T.
1,000,000,000 (or 109) γ (gammas), used in geophysics. Thus, 1 γ = 1 nT (nanotesla)
For those concerned with low-frequency electromagnetic radiation in the home, the following conversions are needed most:
1000 nT (nanotesla) = 1 µT (microtesla) = 10 mG (milligauss)
1,000,000 µT = 1 T

Layout is quite excessively broken when screen density is changed, see attached screenshot! Makes the app basically unusable. Shame, it really looks like it would be excellent.
