Before getting started, I’d recommend checking out the Themes section of the Settings menu. From here, you can choose from more than 20 different visual themes based around different color schemes. Once you’ve got the aesthetics down, it’s time to start converting!

The Calculator section is where you’ll most likely get most of the use from this app. At the top of the screen you’ll see a pair of currencies, with the defaults being Euro and US Dollar. These can be changed by tapping on each and selecting Add Currencies.


Receive Currency Value Alerts

Tapping Add Currencies will take you to the Favorites section where you can choose from pretty much any global currency. It should be noted, however, that this free version of the app only allows you to select four favorites at any one time, with more available via in-app purchase.

Once you’ve selected which currencies you’d like to compare, it then becomes a simple matter of typing in the quantity you want.

You’ll also notice basic mathematical function buttons along the side of the calculator, such as add, subtract, multiply, and divide. These are perfect for doing some in-app calculations before having the final total converted from one currency to another.
