I love this app, a bushel and a peck (and a becquerel and a parsec)

Normally, when I need to do unit conversions (because, let's be honest, I haven't calculated centigrams since high school), I just refer to Google. I downloaded this app fully expecting to uninstall and go back to my standard Googling, but I am most definitely a convert. (Incidentally, this brings my awful pun rate up to approximately one for every 55 words).
The standards -- pounds, kilograms, inches, joules, pints, degrees -- are all present, but i was astonished at how many other categories were built into the app. There's a currency converter that can sync up with the newest rates, fuel consumption calculations, data storage, fancy engineering and physics categories that I don't even understand, and even typographical measurements!
If an app that allows you to convert from dessertspoons to ponies, or from poise to slug/ft s isn't enough? Unit Converter - ConvertPad also lets you create totally custom categories and units. So, if its important to designate that there are 42 leets in a meganerd, you can set that up.
Excuse me, I have to go convert iPhones to Droids now...
