World travelers or those who need to keep up-to-date on current exchange rates should look no further than Currency Converter HD for iPhone and iPod Touch. The app, created by Lifelike Apps, offers a beautiful interface that makes keeping tabs on world currencies a breeze.
Currency Converter supports more then 150 currencies used throughout the world. In the calculator function you can enter an amount and swap between two currencies to see the current exchange. Through the settings panel you can change the number of decimals from one to four depending on how exact you need to be. Currency Converter also provides auto updates on the quarter, half or full hour and will display the last time updated in the total panel. This is great, because the app caches the last exchange rates gathered and will store that for offline use. It’s ideal for when you’re traveling and out of service range.
Through the chart view you can see exchange trends between two currencies in graph format for as recent as the past day all the way to five years ago, if data is available. Via the list tab you can create a custom list of currencies you wish to track and you can see the exchange rate at a glance. The amount used will be pulled from your most recent calculation and will change as your calculations continue.
