Knowing the value of a Dollar (Pound, Euro, Dinar, Yen, etc) is an important lesson many of us learn as children. On the road knowing the value of your currency is equally important. When using a currency converter it is imperative that the tools be able to give you an accurate exchange rate as well as quickly do-the-math for you. There are quite a few currency exchange rate iPhone Apps, but very few seem to have an easy to use interface.
The Currency Converter offers users the basic tools needed for quickly gathering currency exchange rate information. The interface allows users to easily change their ‘home currency’ as well as add multiple foreign currency exchange rates at a quick glance.
While many currency exchange converter iPhone Apps offer multiple currencies at a quick glance very few offer a built in exchange rate calculator. Knowing the exchange rate is good, but quickly getting an exact total on an exchange rate is even better. While I can easily figure out that USD1 = CHF1.07, I can not quickly calculate in my head that USD473.56 = CHF508.93 (USD = US Dollar; CHF = Swiss Franc)
The ease of use and ability to customize which currencies are displayed and in what order they are displayed within The Currency Converter makes this iPhone App a must have for any international traveller.
Over the past year I have used a few TouchMeme iPhone Travel Apps and have previously written up Next Flight as an iPhone App of the Week. I look forward to seeing what other Apps they may create in the future.
