A new application can’t do everything right off the bat. The developer must make a hard choice: Should they spend time cramming in as many features as possible so that the app is as useful as can be, or should they go with a lean application that doesn’t try to do too much, but is a joy to interact with? In other words, form, or function? Flib is a free unit converter for Android that sits firmly in the “form” camp: With a flat aesthetic, large controls, and (mostly) well-designed interactions, it’s one of the prettiest apps I’ve seen of late.
When you are on the go, one of the most important pieces of information to have is currency conversions. After all, you need to know how far your money will go where you are.

Thankfully, the aptly named iPhone app Currency has all the conversions you need in one place.
