ZoomUnit Multitouch Unit Conversion App

THE TEN SECOND INTRODUCTION

EXACTLY...

MULTI-TOUCH ALL THE WAY

ZoomUnits is a unit conversion app, swapping the usual numeric keypad for a dynamic multitouch interface.

Taps and swipes can quickly show you all the numbers you need, as accurately as you want.

Viewing a range of numbers at once, you get a better view of the relationship between them than if you calculated a single value.
A long-tap on either side of the screen activates the snap-to-scale feature. The readout numbers are calculated from the nearest scale markers for an exact conversion.
There is no numeric keypad here. Swiping your finger up and down moves the scale and the converted values are continuously updated.

Each measurement (distance, temperature etc) is displayed on its own card. A side-to-side swipe changes the card.

An arrow at the bottom of the card opens up the unit selector, so you can swap between yards, feet, miles etc.

HOW ZOOMUNITS WORKS

Tap and pan up and down to move the scale and change the conversion.
Spread numbers apart to show a smaller range and more decimal places.
Pinch, squashing numbers together, to show a larger range.
Tap and hold on the left or right scales to output values at the nearest marker.
Swipe left or right to change the measurement. From Area, to Distance, to Speed...
Tap on the arrow icon to change units. From Inches, to Feet, to Yards…
