Convert between different units in Alfred 2.
Alfred-Convert uses a built-in library to do the conversion offline.
Note: Currency conversions do require occasional Internet connectivity to update exchange rates. Alfred-Convert will otherwise work just fine without an Internet connection.
The syntax is simple: the quantity, the unit you want to convert from then the unit you want to convert to. For example:
conv 128 mph km
conv 72in cm
conv 100psi bar
conv 20.5 m/s mph
It doesn't matter if there is a space between the quantity and the units or not. Alfred-Convert will tell you if it doesn't understand your query or know the units.
