    That application helps me so much in my chemistry class all the time. Major props to the creator.

    I do know about your converter, which is very good. I had a few reasons for creating my own:
    • To learn to use UIKit
    • To make an open source one so people can see how it's done
    • I wanted to try an interface I'd like better

    Cool!
    I've created mine mainly for self-learning as well.
    Because of that I didn't make it opensource :) (the code is just too messy...)

    Good luck!

    Man, I guess I have some competition then. I think the Google calculator/TI-89 (minus the crappy interactions) style mode is going to be the big part about mine, though. "9.81m/s^2*5lb" --> "22.2487057N" is sexeh, I know I'll get a lot of use out of it in my courses. Making the algorithm for processing expressions was interesting, to say the least.

    Just gotta get it ported over to the iPhone now, though it'll have to wait for June since I'm not working with the toolchain.

    Edit: *brag* This is the Cocoa version of the app, since I put together the model code with Cocoa first and am porting it to Cocoa Touch. The vertical line here separates what will be a portrait view for one mode and a landscape advanced mode when you rotate the device to landscape orientation.

    Pretty cool if I say so myself. The way the algorithm works is so neato. :p:p
