Measures HD for iPad now available


Excuse me, but how is this newsworthy?
It's a cute little app, but you can type is "500 USD to Euro" or "5 inch to cm" into Google and get the same result. There are also countless free converter apps in the app store. Finally - It only works on the iPad?? If you have an iPad, chances are, you have an iPhone. And do you need a quick conversion sitting at your couch or at Starbucks, or do you need it when you are abroad in a store tying to calculate a price or convert a shoe size?

WoW! What a wonderful and newsworthy article! I've been looking for a conversion app as versatile as this one for quite some time -- the free apps really don't have this level of diversity, and they definitely don't have the clean looks. For me, an app must be both functional and have eye-appeal. I must be the only guy in the world who has an iPad and NO iPHONE! And while anybody can type "500 USD to Euro" into Google, I do not always have ready access to a computer. Being able to use my iPad in the field to convert various units of measure (especially for engineering) is really quite helpful. Yes, some iPads actually venture out of the cozy confines of a home and are used for things other than playing "Angry Birds". Great find, Leanna! Thanks!
