Apps for nurses: Convert Units

Over on our Facebook page, we’ve got a conversation brewing about the best nursing related phone apps. One of the nominees for best app is Convert Units. The app, according to its website, is a free application that “lets you create your own unit conversions for anything you want, quickly and easily. Convert Units for Free is an essential tool that you’ll love and use everyday. Over 11 million users already do.”

What nurses love about it:

“(…) this app is amazingly versatile and user friendly. Unbelievable that it’s free. Converts dozens of measurements and types and does so easily for those of us with no mathematical abilities whatsoever. The customizableness (there’s a word…!) makes conversions fluid, understandable and remarkably convenient and easy to input. Can’t say enough nice things about this app. Thank you for this much needed and often used tool.” – Adam Schramm, Official website review

“Great app. Does exactly what I need it to do. Wish I would have thought of this myself!” – Google play review
