    Great app and many many thanks for this, was waiting for this one. Few things though:

    As pointed out, kg to pounds needs to be corrected
    As pointed out, is it possible for this app to work more like the http://meatarian.co.uk/iphone/iconvert/ (Iconvert) application in that, is it possible to have all fields showing the conversion on one page, for instance, if go to Temperature, can we not see all the different types, like:

    Celsius
    Kelvin
    Farenheight
    Rankine

    all with input boxes next to them, on tapping which, the keyboard comes up

    and one would then only have to input in one of the input boxes to see the converted values in all others. That would make it easier to use.

    All in all though, a lovely app. Thanks.

    Cheers.

    Here's a totally unofficial update for the app. The changes I made are:

    Weight, corrected pound conversion
    1 kg = 2.204623 lbs

    added Time category (thanks to Z00L, I didn't do this one, just added his):
    days
    hours
    milliseconds
    minutes
    months (30 days)
    months (avg)
    seconds
    weeks
    years

    Volume:
    gallons (Imp)
    gallons (US)
    cup
    fluid ounce
    pint (US)
    tablespoon (US)
    teaspoon (US)

    Length:
    league
    nautical mile
    rod

    and corrected some minor errors in the labels.

    I also changed the icon, which I'm sure some of you will hate.

    Awesome work!

    I suggest you add a Money Conversion category in your next update, that would be really useful!

    I'll try to answer all the questions in one post:
    1. I hope to make the releases once in 2 days or less
    2. I'll be constatnly adding new measures/units
    3. iConvert-style interface would be hopefully available in the next releases as optional UI (but it seems like a lot of work, so I don't know when that will happen...).
    4. DaveiPhone: I'll incorporate your additions/changes in the next release (hmm, not sure about the icon...); thanks for that
    5. The application is actually structured to be internationalized. When I'll finish with the main features (and measures/units), I'll translate it to Hebrew/Russian. For other translations I'll need community help

    Interesting statistics: I've posted the first version about 4 days ago, since then there were over 1700 downloads (and still counting). That's cool, it means that it is useful app... But, there was one single $3 donation So next time I guess I'll need to find another business model

    Man, if you can swing the iConvert mode, you'd be a hero!!! Please do. You're app is really polished and with that addition, it would be the ultimate converter. Thanks so much for listening to your users.

    great App !

    how about adding a category for money conversion ?

    You could start off with manual exchange rate setting and maybe letter get exchange rates from fxconverter or some other place

    Also a table for converting clothing sizes like US vs. European sizes would be usefull

    Any maybe a QuickConvert button that jumps to your most commonly used conversion (via settings)

    keep up the good work

    hi vladimirk,

    i don't know if this would be a feasible request but would it be possible to keep the app's name on the springboard as "Converter"? this is only due to the fact that "VKConverter" has too many letters making it appear abbreviated into "VKCo...ter" on the springboard/dock. maybe you can simply put the name VKConverter on the app's splash screen as well as the header/title bar on its main screen.

    since by doing so it would prevent any abbreviations, it would make it look cleaner as well as give you credit as it's developer IMHO. thanks a ton for this awesome app!

    I don't care that much about my initials being part of the app name (I would rather prefer donations...). I just wanted to avoid possible name collisions - not sure how Installer.app handles it...
    All, do you know another application named Converter.app? Or I can safely capture that name?

    Funny, mine does not show up abbreviated. I get the full name displayed. I'm not using any custom SMB or Customise.app. The only thing I've done to my SB is to edit the .plist so I get the Touch Dock.

    so far you have been the only one that was able to successfully release a converter app. i browse through several forums and yours has been the only one. and with the exposure MMi & Hackint0sh alone get amongst others, if there ever was one that came before you, it surely would have surfaced by now.

    oh, and all good developers deserve all the credit they can get. money aside, you definitely deserve the recognition as well.

    hmmm...that's strange. coz i also dont use any theme app at all and modify all icons manually. i put VKConverter on my dock and it spells "VKCo...ter". oh well...still a great app!

    One requests when you get a chance, please add cooking units in your volume section (cups, tablespoon, teaspoon, etc.) along with some imperial units (quart, pint, etc.)

    thanks,

    Herein lies the confusion, I don't have mine in the Dock, but just the SB. Does yours show up abbreviated in the SB?

    Default You Da Shitz
    This app is awsome. I love the GUI and the ease of use. A+ work. I wish I could do something like this.. Hell I have problems trying to install the tool chain. haha cant wait for the sdk. I was wondering if there could possibly be support for user add-able conversions. I have to do alot of pressure,vacuum, and other facilities and biomedical conversions and this app would be great on a daily basis. Thanks again for your time.

    If your Converter crash on springboard, chmod the files inside the folder to change it.
    I use WinSCP to edit the properties of the whole folder and it said 0755 but it's not true.
