uConvert – great looking converter that makes me want to buy completely unnecessary software

One of the definitive features of a great looking user interface is the urge to buy a device or application, even if you have absolutely no use for it.  It is like that with the ZuneHd and with Microsoft’s Courier, and uConvert falls exactly into the same category.

I don’t need a unit converter much, but that’s not going to stop me from buying this incredible attractive application that is also rather feature rich.

The software features:

  • 19 unit types/categories
  • Convert between more than 25 different currencies
  • Latest exchange rates are downloaded automatically when you start the app
  • High resolution VGA and WVGA graphics (QVGA and WQVGA available)
  • Slot machine style interface lets you select your conversion quickly
  • Add favourite conversions and sync them online so they’ll never be lost
  • Switch a conversion quickly – with one swipe swap from $500 in €s to €500 in $s

The software has a free version without currency support or saving favourites, but why bother when its only $0.99.
