Yeldnat Converter 1.0b
John Ottini | Handheld PC Reviews
Every now and then I’m still surprised by the superb quality of freeware available for the Handheld PC platform and Converter 1.0b by Yeldnet is an excellent example of what I’m talking about.
It’s as simple as, selecting a conversion type and From & To conversion units (i.e. inches to feet or meter), then entering the value you wish to convert and the software does the rest. See the listing below for the full range of conversion categories available.
The software also comes complete with a Scratch Pad for simple note keeping or for copying and pasting your conversion results. Information added to the scratch pad can be copied and pasted in to another application or can be saved and reloaded in Scratch Pad the next time you use Converter. Unfortunately, you cannot save multiple notes, so if you want save more than one note at a time, your best bet is to copy and paste it to another application.
The Value of Freeware
Although, this software is not as comprehensive as Conversion in Hand, it does contain most of the most commonly used conversions and is therefore of great value to anyone who needs a basic, cost efficient unit converter. It’s unfortunate that this software is only available for StrongArm processors (written specifically for the Jornada 720), because I believe that it would be of great benefit to MIPS & SH3, 4 Handheld PC owners. In any event, this is a very impressive piece of freeware and I highly recommend it.
Windows CE 3.0 or greater
