Need a unit conversion program that’s consistent with the values established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology? Now, there’s an app for that.
AppoTize has released Convert2, an iPhone app that ensures conversion integrity by being consistent with the NIST Special Publication 811, “Guide for the Use of the International System of Units.” Convert2 is available for download from the iPhone App Store here.
The app gives descriptions and unit symbols for each conversion, and offers a built-in conversion calculator, AppoTize representatives said. The company guarantees conversion accuracy — of such things as lengths, areas, volumes and temperatures — to seven significant digits. Convert2 is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, and it offers Web access to NIST.gov.
