[prMac.com] Astana, Kazakhstan - Mobile Creators has released XL 1.1 for iOS. Clothing is one of the most important things a human needs and living in a globalized world means that products one buys may have come from half way around the globe, from a country with it's own set to measures and standards. To help with that, shops dealing with such international clothing sometimes print out conversion tables, usually they are incomplete and complicated to use. That makes clothing conversion one of the most useful apps one could have on her mobile device.
Given the obvious need, there are many applications attempting to tackle this problem, mostly from three main categories: list of conversion tables, calculator-like apps and apps where you need to set up sizes in advance. List of conversion tables apps are like those printed conversion table in the clothing shops and using the is just like having a scanned version of those tables with you - obvious solution, but is it optimal?
Clothing sizes conversion in calculator apps is, usually, just a fraction of what the app can do. It is bundled together with size, volume, distance and, sometimes, even currency conversion functionality. The usual workflow is that user navigates down the hierarchy of categories and measures, types in the initial value, selects another the standard she want to convert to and gets some other number as a result. A very engineer-friendly approach.
Finally, the apps which require setup in many cases it is impossible just to look up the size and a tool that is hard to use seldom gets used.
The XL app is, essentially a table app where various clothing sizes are a part are displayed side-by-side but, unlike majority of such apps, it highlights the size you are interested in and gracefully hides what is not immediately useful. It is as obvious as a tape measure and requires no setup - launch and use it immediately.
