Converter is at the high end of unit conversion apps on the Mac and comes with a list of options not found in Apple’s own OS X Unit Converter Dashboard Widget or the Calculator (yes, it does conversions; lots of them).
What you get is a dedicated app– not a calculator or Dashboard Widget or Notification Center widget– a real app with 17 different conversion categories and hundreds of unit conversions, all wrapped up in a pleasant OS X Yosemite inspired app that’s not difficult to use though the sheer volume of conversions can see daunting at first glance.
See what I mean?
The conversion categories are extensive but easily selected from the scrolling left sidebar in the app window.

Converter comes with dozens of financial formulas and calculations, 18 physics formulas and calculations, 20 constants, base conversions (2 to 36), a table of elements, and standard additional and multiplication tables.
Use Converter to find surface area, volume, perimeters of different shapes, and almost any area. And, of course, there’s a built-in calculator with constants so for a few bucks you get even more than expected.
Speaking of more, there’s skins. Or rather, colors– 20 of them– which personalize Converter to match OS X Yosemite.
Converter is nicely done and highly recommended if you’re in need of more than comes with OS X’s built in Unit Converter Dashboard Widget or the Calculator.
