The converting app Convertly became available back in September and it has just received an update. The app converts units and currency for you. Designed for BlackBerry 10 and simple to use. You can convert between 24 different units and 167 currencies. For those who like choice, there are six color themes to choose from too.
Convertly v2.0 new features
- Added support for BlackBerry Passport
- Units now automatically rearrange based on most frequently used units (Now, base unit will be the most frequently used units for that specific category)
- Added a 'copy' button on the conversions page to copy the conversion to clipboard
- Added more industry grade units
- Currency converter now sorted A-Z order by default
- Added native application bar (swipe down)
- Added Share, BBM, Contact and Rate Button button
