You have to admit this. The rest of the world isn’t quite like the U.S. Except maybe for Canada, U.K., and Australia. Notoriously afflicted by English and set in their ways all. Americans who travel or work abroad have to convert things from this to that. The rest of the world does it the right way first.
If it’s not money, it’s weights, volume, speed, and a gazillion other things that are measured differently elsewhere on planet earth than they are here in the good old U.S. of A. Well, this red, white, and blue guy figured out a few things while living for years in Europe. You need a conversion tool. Here’s the best one for the Mac.
Convert Me, In English
The years I lived in France taught me the value of knowing how to convert this to that. Thankfully, conversion tools run aplenty for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. What many Mac users probably didn’t know is that Calculator also comes with some conversion options. Open Calculator and click the Convert menu selection. Ipso facto and presto. Conversions aplenty.
If those conversions are not enough, and it’s likely you’ll run into something that does not convert easily or quickly, then you’ll appreciate the combo calculator and converter in the cleverly named app CalcVerter.
As calculators go, CalcVerter is quite good. It has dozens of financial formulas and calculations plus 18 physics formulas and calculations. And that’s just to start.
The claim to fame here is the long and winding list of categories and hundreds of units that are easily converted. The list includes Acceleration, Angle, Area, Astronomical, Currency, Density, Digital Storage, Energy, Force, Illumination, Inductance, Length, Magnitude, Mass, Power, Pressure, Speed, Temperature, Time and Volume.
Plus, calculations and conversions can be done at the same time.
The bullet point list of features is impressive. CalcVerter handles addition and multiplication tables, converts base between 2 to 36, comes with more than 20 constants, and makes it almost trivial to find area, surface area and volume, as well as perimeter.
CalcVerter works great on a variety of macOS versions including macOS Mojave, gets updated regularly, and looks like an app that Apple would include on the Mac. If you need more than Calculator on your Mac then try CalcVerter. Worth every penny.
