Simple FX – Travel Currency Converter: Written iPhone App Review
Simple FX – Travel Currency Converter is an application available for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Simple FX is an intuitive tool that is a easy to use currency converter. It is a simple, on-the-go tool mainly for travelers, but anyone can use it. Simple FX has a bunch of cool features that make it one of the best conversion tools available. And even better, it fits right in your pocket.
The features of Simple FX are incredibly useful. The first, and most important feature in my opinion, is the live exchange rates. The app takes the live rate from a public source for over 80 currencies. So unless your traveling to an uncovered country, you are good. To expand on this, there are about 140 currencies available. Simple FX has over half listed, and I bet that the other 60 currencies are of countries that don’t receive a lot of tourism. So the usefulness of Simple FX is widely apparent.
Another great feature of Simple FX is it’s offline mode ability. The app takes the last rate that it recorded, and let’s you see it. Though you will have to have an internet connection to update rates, this is a very useful tool if you are roaming or something of that nature. The app also comes with a bunch of other features that make using the app a little easier.
The design of Simple FX is simple (Didn’t see that one coming). As it implies in the name, the goal of the app is making it easy for you to check the rates of currency. It has enough features to make it a powerful tool, but not enough to burden you. The buttons and interface are glossy and look great on your phone. Even better, Simple FX is updated for the iPhone 5, so checking is an even better experience.
Navigating around the app on your phone is a breeze. It’s very simple to select the currencies you want to convert to and fro, and since the data is from a live source, it works great. I would honestly recommend at least checking out the app, or it’s lite version if you need a solid currency converter for your device.
Overall Simple FX is a powerful tool with a great design behind it. It has a number of very useful features that make it more worthwhile to have. It looks great on your phone, is optimized for your iPhone 5 screen size, and let’s you choose from over 80 currencies. All around great app.
Simple FX – Travel Currency Converter is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
