autoConvert Select – pounds, stones and currency conversion trial

lbst-1
I’m over 10Kg above target weight đŸ˜„

Two changes in this update – a minor tweak for pound/stone-using users, and announcing first currency conversion trial.

Convert mass to both stones and pounds

Some countries measure weight in pounds, others prefer stones. In the old extension there was a setting to decide which unit to use. In autoConvert Select, both values are now shown. Simple.

Currency conversion trial

Currency conversion is now available in autoConvert select. However, it’s currently in trial mode, and available only to a small (randomly selected) fraction of users.

I am not very comfortable about the durability of the exchange rates source I am using. So, I have restricted this feature to a small number of users. Exchange rates are also fetched only twice a day.

When currency conversion is available, an option to enable it, and to select your home currency will be available in options.

That’s all, folks!

Offline conversions of units and times
