Currency converters for your smartphone

Back in the old days, I used to carry around my phone with a calculator feature to allow me to figure out how cheap the pair of Nikes were. These days, you could still do the same but why not use a currency converter via the web or a smartphone. The advantages are near real-time updates on currency fluctuations and around 180 currencies to choose from.

I have been using XE Currency Converter for ages via the webpage and like all other companies worth their salt, they have an app as well. I tried a few apps from the iTunes Store, read some reviews and the XE one came out tops. Better still, it’s free!

Works on

  • iPhone
  • Blackberry
  • Android

Other than conversion, it also allows for exchange data trends. Geeky, yes but gives you some insight to how volatile the markets can be on a daily basis.
