Introduction

Abiro Converter Free enables you to quickly and easily convert between popular units 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.

Usage of Conversion

  2. Select a Category
  3. Select From and To units
  4. Select Convert
  5. Rinse and repeat…

Notes

  • Category and From/To Units are remembered between conversions, so you can quickly make several conversions using the same settings.
  • The last value converted will be used as the new value for the next conversion.
  • Note: Times are approximate (24 hours per day, 30 days per month, 365 days per year). Work-related times assume 8 hours per work day, 5 days per week etc, and are useful for preliminary project planning and similar.

Permissions

The application’s ads will ask permission for Internet access, but Converter Free itself doesn’t need communication.
