Cal­con­vert If you’re look­ing for a prac­ti­cal app that can quickly con­vert cur­rency and mea­sure­ment units (like vol­umes for cook­ing, for ex­am­ple), then Cal­con­vert is your best bet. It’s smart enough to use as a sci­en­tific (or nor­mal) cal­cu­la­tor, but also fea­tures over 600 con­ver­sion units and 150 cur­ren­cies – choose what you’ll use most. What’s more is that you can change the way the app looks. Free for ios/ap­ple

This beau­ti­fully de­signed app helps you keep time across mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions and time zones, sec­tion­ing ev­ery­thing by colour and con­nect­ing with your own sched­ule – it even works with the Ap­ple Watch.
