Convoto review featured

What is Convoto?

Convoto is a conversion application that adds a little style and pizzazz. It has a number of unit conversions that you can use but it also has some unique controls and a lot of color. It’s $1.99US in the Google Play Store.

Here’s how it works. You enter the application and find the units you want to convert. There are two layers of choices. There are the general unit conversions like temperature. Then you can choose which units specifically that you want to compare or convert. Then things get a little interesting. You can manually enter the values using the keyboard or you can swipe up and down on the screen to change the unit by hand. This allows you to make quick conversions if you’re dealing with a lot of data without being required to pop out the keyboard every time.

You’ll also notice how colorful the app is. It was pleasant because a lot of these conversion apps can be a bit bland on the UI side of things and Convoto doesn’t suffer from that at all. On the other hand, there are people who like things minimal and without so much color. Those folks are going to strongly dislike this application. The app is easy to navigate and all parts are clearly labeled and easy to find although we wish there were a search function for even quicker selections.

It does what it says it does with style.

Pros

Bright, colorful UI is a refreshing change from the usually minimal UI's of similar apps.
You can set values manually or use a slider control which is nice.
Dozens of units from a wide range of categories can be converted.
Small things like immersive mode will make some people happy.

Cons

Some features, like immersive mode may get in the way for some people.
Bright, gaudy colors aren't for everyone.
The slider controls could use a little work.

Bottom Line

Overall, Convoto is a solid application. We know there are a lot of conversion apps out there but this one stands out thanks to its bright colors and simple UI. It is $1.99US in the Play Store and we understand if you don’t think an app like this is worth that much. However, if you find yourself converting things constantly, it may be a price worth paying. Just make sure you test it out before the refund period expires in case you need a refund!
