    I need a unit conversion application much like the dashboard widget called "Unit Converter". It could be a little more robust but really that is all I need. If it were a part of a calculator that would be fine. That way I could come up with the measurement I have and could convert it in one app. The conversions I need or liquid measures, area, distance/length, volume. I prefer a clean/not cluttered UI and easy to use (who doesn't). Can anyone suggest one from first hand experience?

    The one I use is caled "Units". I can't link because my work computer doesn't have iTunes store access. Just search for it. It's solid.

    I have the same one. It's a nice little app. I'm very pleased with it.

    I like 'Converter' myself, 'Units' is decent too.

    I don't know if any of those apps are free, but Google works great for unit conversion

    althought not an app, if you have a graphing calculator handy, they have unit conversions. i find calculators much easier than computers for basic calculations

    just a thought

    I use Units. It's cheap (99 cents?) and it works great. A new update just came out that added more conversions. It already has more than I need :). It's a great app and it looks nice.

    Units also has currency conversions which you can update daily.
