Length Fraction Calculator

Length Fraction Calculator


Given either inches or millimeters, calculates the closest inches in fraction form, round up or down.

Why? Well have you ever been at the store and your project needs a 10mm bolt but you can't find it in metric. Take out Length Fraction Calculator type in 10mm and you find that you either need a 3/8" bolt if you want to go smaller or a 7/16" bolt if you need the next size up.

Also great if you have a digital caliper and it gives you numbers like 3.2423".

Great app! (minus one small problem I've had) Would rate it 5 star if there were a side scroll button(s) to fine tune the placement of the measurement. It's a little bit frustrating trying to stop it precisely/directly where you want the measurement to be.

Great Converter I needed to convert ruler fractional measurements into millimeters. This app does all of it in one step. Much better than having to convert fractions to decimal, and then convert to metric. It's nice that you can set the minimum denominator for the fractions, but it's unfortunate that you can't set it to snap to the ruler marks. On larger screens with better sensitivity I don't think it would be much of an issue, but on my phone screen it's hard to get the fractions dead on. Still you can manually enter decimal values. All in all a great, and simply app.
