The App Store is awash with currency / unit conversion utilities, but not all of them are as slick, functional and visually appealing as what we’re featuring today, and while the app will usually set you back $2.99, it has just been made available free of charge. This offer will only run for a very limited time, so be sure to check out the details and download link below.

The first thing to note about the app, called Convertizo 2, is that it is a universal offering, which means it works fluidly on any iDevice be it an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Often, developers release separate editions of apps for iPhone and iPad, which can also incur a second fee, but whether you wish to convert units on your Apple smartphone or tablet, this one has you completely covered.

The user interface is not only slick and generally stylish, but it’s also very in-keeping with the overall look and feel of iOS. Sometimes, a simple app can be ruined by some over-zealous design that attempts to do much more than is necessary to supplement the performance, but thankfully, Convertizo 2 is both minimalist and elegant. And hey, if you find the appearance to be a little too basic, you can always switch between one of the many in-built themes available, ranging from white + orange to a very dark black configuration.

Aside from the vanity, though, Convertizo 2 has just about anything you could want from a conversion app. As well as covering every currency imaginable, you can also select from almost any unit of measurement and convert it to something else. From millimeters to inches, grams to tonnes, this is easily the most thorough unit conversion app we’ve ever seen, and given its price drop, is perfect to have in the armory in case of an emergency.

As aforementioned, it would ordinarily cost you $2.99, but for now, its price has dropped to a very appealing zero dollars. Grab it while it’s hot (and free) to ensure that next time you need to quickly convert something, you won’t have to rely on guesswork.
