Money conversion Apps

I have many friends that travel abroad quite often. Naturally, they take their iPads with them wherever they go. Multiple destinations usually mean different currencies, which in turn mean different exchange rates. Unlike travel guides, exchange rates are constantly changing.


If you travel abroad frequently for business or pleasure it is important to know what the exchange rates are between the local and your home currency.

Applicable to:
iPad versions: iPad, iPad 2, the New iPad, iPad mini, iPad with Retina Display
iOS versions: iOS 5, iOS 6 and up

Today we will discuss 4 currency conversion Apps and their features. All of them are free, although some offer upgrades to paid versions.

Since exchange rates are constantly changing, you need to be connected to the Internet to use any of the Apps below.
