unitMeasure is supported by any device running Android 5.0 Lollipop (API Level 21) and up. The app was tested on many smartphones and tablets alike, meeting this specific device specification.

unitMeasure prides itself in being an offline solution. There are no permissions requested or used whatsoever. In order to update currency information, an internet connection is required. Therefore, unitMeasure cannot have a currency converter by definition.

I love dark themes, therefore the app defaults to a standard dark mode. There is also a light theme and AMOLED Night Theme (to save even more battery power).

English is the only officially supported language of the app, as of now. The app is created and maintained by a single person who primarily speaks english. Therefore, the app is in english. If you are interested in helping to translate the app in another language, please join our telegram group:

Of course, unitMeasure supports tablets in addition to smartphones. Additionally, unitMeasure now works in landscape for the majority of conversions.
