Why I like this app: This app gives you fairly complicated calculations at your fingertips and very quickly.
This app provides very easy and quick calculations for a number of topics, not all used by everyone. Here is the list by category:
- Gives Beaufort scale from wind speed
- Determine True wind given course, speed, direction and speed of relative wind
- Depths: converts between fathoms, meters and feet
- Speed: converts between knots, mph, etc.
- Distance: converts between, nautical miles, kilometers, meters, and statute miles
- Calculates your Great Circle Route or Mercator Route given your latitude and longitude and your destinations latitude and longitude.
- calculates your Time to Target and ETA
- Gives you the sunset and sunrise anywhere in the world
- Given a latitude and longitude, it will give you UTC, UTC Date, Local Time, Local Date, Time Zone relative to GMT
