The graphics are beautifully done, which is one thing you can always expect from Concrete Software, Inc. Conversions are updated daily online to provide accurate, near real-time data, like most conversion apps. One great feature, however, is that conversions can be pulled from data in the software if traveling abroad, and the updates are typically every couple weeks. Even if the conversions aren't 100% accurate the entire trip, this feature certainly gives you a good starting point. Conversions are categorized alphabetically, but there is an option to place your most used conversions at the top of the list.
With all that is wonderful about Unit Conversions, there is one particularly large flaw that I noticed, that puts it slightly behind the competition in one way. Currency conversions use shorthand abbreviations for the currency; there is no option to set the Unit Converter to display the country for the currencies. This isn't a terrible flaw if you'll only be visiting one country, but when traveling between multiple countries, you often won't remember all of the abbreviations. Despite this, Unit Converter is an excellent app for all your conversion needs. At 99cents, it has more than enough units to make it well worth the investment.
