Freeware: Converter for Nokia N97/5800/5530/S60 5th Edition

This is a nice touch based alternative to the default S60 converter. It’s free at the Ovi Store.

  • Prominent number pad – very useful particularly for touch only use (and this app only recognizes touch input). Default S60 converter can of course use the keypad/keyboard and keypad touch (though only visible when you click on “Amount”)
  • Scrolling bar of icons that allows you to switch between
    • Area
    • Energy
    • Fluid Volume << Not available in default S60 Converter
    • Length
    • Mass
    • Power
    • Pressure
    • Temperature
  • Within the type, you can  of course switch to different units – just tap in the unit box of the starting/ending amount

  • Conversion is instant – the moment you type an amount – though you can only change the value of the starting amount (you can change the end amount in the default S60 converter)
  • It does lack the currency option, though I don’t use that in the default converter as “PSILOC World Traveler” has a much better currency conversion tool with 4 instant currency view selectable from every major currency all of which with an always up to date exchange rate. PSILOC World Traveler is also free on the Ovi Store and may already be preinstalled on your phone. PWT has its own host of great features – Weather, World time with 3D Globe etc)
