Amount - The simplest unit converter on the AppStore

• Featured by Apple as "New and Noteworthy".
• Featured by Apple as "Editor's Choice".
• Featured by Apple in "What's Hot" section of the AppStore.
• Ranked #1 in paid Productivity apps for iPhone.

Amount it's the lightest and the most intuitive unit converter you've ever seen.
It brings a brand new approach to the unit converters: with just 2 taps of your fingers you have all the values you want to convert side by side.
Plus it has some gesture based actions that simplify the whole use of the app.

Amount is the lightest unit converter on the store (only 500Kb!) and is available on the AppStore for 0.99$.

Please, if you are going to buy it rate and leave a review with your thinks, I'll really appreciate your suggestions! This can help me improve it a lot!

A new version (1.1.5) has been submitted to Apple and it's waiting for review.
Great graphic enhancement in this release!
Plus there is a greater space reduction: the whole app weights less than 500Kb now.

Heard of Savard Software's Master Converter for Windows...?

Let's hope your app can be an iOS replacement of the said program in the future...

Thx man, I hope that too

Btw, now I'm just working on a new release (1.2) with a lot of new units and categories, including currencies.
That will be released soon after 1.1.6.

Location: At the hacks section.
convertible: out.


amount: in.



this is a great app, and as the OP said its intuitive and clean.

just a suggestion for future updates i would change the number input table to a calculator format instead of a dial one (and lose the letters?).

ie:

789
456
123

iDigg.

Great suggestion! Yeah the letters are a bit annoying, I was already thinkin' about that, but that's definitely a thing I'm going to do in the next releases!

Cool alerts that shows up when a category or a unit is deleted or restored to default.
Italian localization.

Important: due to some deep changes in the conversion algorithm, if you have your system language set on Italian is recommended to reinstall the application, otherwise the app will crash.

Now working on some fast fix (version 1.3.1), with some new algorithm improvements, new alert and more settings.

Working on a new minor version (1.3.2) with some really cool animation effects and user interface improvements.
There's also a fix for a known bug, where in the Cooking category Tablespoons and Teaspoons units are reversed.

If you noticed some bugs or you have some suggestions, please tell me by leaving a review. You can also contact me via Twitter (I know, you'll appreciate a "Support section" or a website, but now I'm busy with university, when I have some free time I'll do it for sure )

This version introduces a new way to create favorites lists: shaking the device (or tapping the title) will now enable the "edit mode", allowing you to select which categories or units you want to keep.
"Copy" feature changed: now to copy a unit you have to long tap a row in any point you like.
Added the possibility to enable or disable animations into the iPhone Settings.
Added the possibility to enable or disable unit's name copy into the iPhone Settings.
Animations are now speeded up.

Plus there is a new promotional video at this link:

This is a very nice app. It'll probably become my new goto converter. I actually typed a nice little rant here about how unintuitive the 'shake' gesture is, then realized you can just tap the top navigation bar to enter edit mode. Huh. Still might want to have the app point this out upon first entering the units screen.

One request: a button in edit mode that toggles between "select all units" and "deselect all units" so that I don't have to manually check off 20-something options. Plus it gives the user a quick 'reset to default' option by reselecting all units with one touch.

Once again, this is a great app.

Thanks man!
I know the shake gesture is a bit unintuitive, especially the first time you use the app, that's why I did a more simple "alternative" mode by tapping on the top title. Still need to point this out though, I have to find a good method to do this (I don't really like the first screen explanation).

Btw those are really good suggestions, especially the one of the select/deselect all button, that will definitely be implemented in the next release!
