Make quick work of conversions with Unit Converter. We also have a virtual doll house for your little ones, and a card game where the cards themselves determine the rules.

All app prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Price changes are solely under the control of the developers.

iPhone:

EnigmOn ($1.99 → Free, 19.2 MB): A brain-teasing puzzle game.

Each level presents you with an image. You have to pay close attention to every detail, all of the sounds, and any references presented to you in order to perform the correct action and move on to the next.

Strength in Numbers ($2.99 → Free, 40.8 MB): An online multiplayer game that will put your math skills to the test.

Go head-to-head with friends or random opponents in thrilling math battles. You're each provided with a limited amount of time to solve as many problems as possible using the numbers available to you. Just tap or drag the numbers into the open slots at the bottom of the screen along with the correct symbol to equal the number at the top. You're able to utilize power-ups to help boost your score, but they'll cost you precious tokens. The game includes achievements and leaderboards via Game Center as well.

Fluxx ($0.99 → Free, 35.4 MB): A card game where the cards themselves determine the rules.

You’re able to play with up to three friends or have AI opponents take their places. At the start of the game, each player holds three cards in their hand. On a turn they’re able to draw on card and play another. By playing a card new rules will be put into action, changing the makeup of the game. This results in some pretty wacky events, which can make games last only a handful of seconds to more than 30 minutes. A rulebook is available in case you need some help along with a tutorial for new players. The game also includes online play, 12 avatars to choose from, player stats, and achievements via Game Center. Fluxx is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 263 ratings.

Word Up Dog ($1.99 → Free, 25.2 MB): Dig your way out of trouble in this word game.

You get to play as a lost puppy that’s stuck underground. You must dig your way to the bottom of each level to escape. The only problem is that each chunk of dirt you dig up will cost you a bone, and the only way to get bones is by spelling and selling words. You’re able to play some pretty funky words, so try to come up with big ones to earn more bones. You can also meet up with characters to earn bonuses, wild cards, and other helpful items. The game includes seven levels, adorable animals dressed up like your favorite 80s rappers, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center. Word Up Dog is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 7 ratings.

You’re also able to mark categories as favorites for quick access later on. The app includes more than 400 units, real-time exchange rates, the ability to create custom units, and the ability to disable unit categories.
