of course, the” Best converter “immediately sets up a working mood and its logical interface settings, and the available values ​​for the conversion of just the eyes diverge. Let’s see what it costs the system, and at the same time and test the functionality of the application.


I would not say that the consumption of resources is insignificant – 55.6 MB of RAM with zero load on the processor appear to be too big for such a program, however, the rate of it or not, will show only the next party .

In this case, 3.4-megabyte distribution grows to 10.24 MB, due to an extensive database (offline). The application itself is compatible with Android 2.3.3 and higher, and of permitting a definition of suspicious approximate location. Why Converter? Really for currency or automatic detection system of measures?

So, we choose the direction of conversion. Total available several such calculations: movement, computer science, mechanics, dimension, photometry, chemistry, electricity, energy and miscellaneous. In the latter prevailing currency, time, pressure cooking, frequency and so on.

for ease of operation to enter numbers is provided corresponding static keyboard with optional separators (dot / dash), pochislovogo remove, clear all the data and navigate through the numbers.

After you drove the value in any row, there is a conversion right for all: pointed, for example, 25 Mbit / s and the value received to Terabithia, gigabits, kilobits, bytes, megabytes, and so on. This calculation does not lie, and round you can customize yourself, using the installation.

Now let us turn to the system monitor. “Best Converter” at peak load consumes 62.5 MB at 0.3 percent CPU utilization, which is not surprising – after all computation. In this case the battery consumption is less than pleased – 14.1%, which means that in intensive conversion in battery capacity during the day will be much to sink.

With regard to traffic, currency and advertising (not found how to disable) took 3.7 MB. At the same time I have not been able to find out why the application positioning.

Certainly, “The Best converter” one of the best converters-harvesters, which will suit both an engineer and an ordinary user. Interface, control, settings – everything is thought out and weighed. At the same time it implemented the ability to create custom conversions direction.

Sad only ads that can not be disabled, as well as errors in the conversion narrowly focused (liter-US fluid ounce), although there may be some nuances, which I just do not know. Also worth noting is the significant battery consumption during intensive transformations of values, but how often do we do it? Nevertheless, it is necessary to know about it.
