Abiro Converter Pro enables you to quickly and easily convert between popular units (including those you specify on your own) and number bases. It’s useful e.g. on trips, when faced with foreign units that you can’t convert in your head. The number base conversion is very useful when developing software or dealing with color values in web design etc. Custom conversions can be used for lacking units as well as for currency conversion etc.
