[Intro]

The result of a bored uni student on holidays, mConvert is a Windows Mobile unit converter.

And now, Version 2 of that slick, finger friendly converter is out. After much feedback suggesting more categories would be good, I have added 10 categories, meaning you can now convert in the following categories:
  • Area
  • Length
  • Power
  • Temperature
  • Velocity
  • Computers
  • Force
  • Frequency
  • Volume
  • Weight
  • Acceleration
  • Cooking
  • Energy
  • Pressure
  • Torque
This is now a powerful converter app, able to rival many of the other converters on the market. And best of all? It's still FREE!! But as before, donations are kindly accepted (on FreewarePocketPC site).

I have tried to make the UI as attractive as possible, as this makes or breaks an app in my opinion. Hope you like it.

I decided to make the app free as nobody likes paying for this stuff, including myself. The aim of mConvert was not only to make an effective converter for mobiles, but to also showcase the potential Windows Mobile has.

thex,

Thanks for downloading! The reason there are only five unit categories is basically because my coding skills are very limited at the moment. If I was to make a sixth category, it would disappear off the bottom of the screen, as the app does not allow the user to move the screen around, if that makes any sense.

If I can work it out, or someone can reference a site where it explains it, I might include it.

Hi Paul,

If you thinking of adding additional categories, rather than putting them on the same page and having to scroll down, you could always make a new page and add page number links to the top of each (if that makes sense).

it's just a suggestion, but thanks again for the app!
