iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
If you’re like us, you tend to do a whole lot of international business. This means we’re constantly knocking back and forth between forms of currency, almost permanently wondering about conversion rates between USD and almost anything else. This is why we’re so excited to be taking a look at iCrossPRO, from Giuseppe Mignogna, today.
The app provides us with a quick and efficient way to see exactly how much our home currency—whatever that may be—is worth on a global scale: And with an attractive package to boot! If you’re looking for our full review of this time saving utility, you need only to slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
As stated, the idea behind iCrossPRO is quite straightforward, though no less useful for it. Essentially, the title makes it incredibly simple and efficient to translate just about any currency (call this your base) into any other bill on the planet. All one needs to do is simply tap in the amount at hand (no limit here) and then slide around the app’s levers until the correct change is hit. After that, tap the big button at the bottom of the page, and iCrossPRO does the rest!
The app pulls all of its data directly off the Internet using the latest and most accurate conversion rates. This means you’re getting the absolute best predictions for each exchange, and are guaranteed a smooth transition—no matter what the transaction is.
We liked this a lot, as well as the app’s sheer number of available currencies. We can’t think of a single one that’s not represented here, all of which can be added to the wheel just by having a go at the settings pane. All in all, it’s streamlined, time-saving stuff.
Design and Interface
In fact, there’s simply not a lot to complain about where iCrossPRO is concerned. The app performs admirably, and the interface itself is very cleverly laid out to provide us with all of this wonderful functionality with almost no fuss. That being said, it’s certainly not the most impressive or heavily branded UX we’ve ever seen. It lacks a bit of character, with all of its gun metal gray gradients and basic sliders. Still, we appreciated how easy it is to get to iCrossPRO’s components, and none of this detracts from the value of the app.
The value of iCrossPRO, which, is still pretty good. The app will cost you only a dollar in the iTunes App Store, which strikes us as a fair bargain for the level of professionalism offered here.
If you’re in need of a rock-solid conversion calculator, especially one that you can take with you in your pocket, we can hardly recommend any other over iCrossPRO. It’ll get the job done, and then some!
iCrossPRO requires iOS 5.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
