aConverter - convert most official measurement units

aConverter
I just wrote this little application for the android because I'm sick of all the converters that have a thousand different units to convert between, and a nightmare to scroll through.

It's lightweight, it's gratis and it's free, released under the GNU GPL.


Description
aConverter is a tiny converter for the Android platform where everything is on one screen. It converts back and forth between 105 different units in 11 different categories, including: Area, Energy, Force, Length, Mass, Mileage, Power, Pressure, Temperature, Torque and Volume which are most of the official (and some unofficial) units in the English Imperial System and the Metric System.

Full list of available units can be found in the README file.

very nice!
first i love those apps that keep the look & feel of an android phone.
i would have some suggestions although:

    - first the icon, i thought that is a metronome. there is an icon guideline on devs site and if you shift it a little bit, i think it will look right.
    i cannot post url tags so here is the address in a lame way: (http://developer.android.com/guide/prac ... esign.html)
    - the input field should bring up only a numeric keypad not the entire on screen keyboard. i think if the field is numeric, than the keyboard will contain only numbers for easier and faster input.
    - the result/output should be bigger, eventually centered. the idea that clicking on it copies the result, can remain, and it could be signaled trough a message.
    - all other text at the bottom, that is unnecessary in my opinion, should be integrated within the MENU key (copy, clear, switch direction, more>about, more>settings)
    - and finally, you should provide some type of download for that bazillion different units, so people can chose what kind of groups should they download. by default this application comes with the most official and it's fantastic, but there should be room for more.

thanks.
