Top Android App: Currency Converter
Currency Converter is a handy reference Android app for up-to-date global exchange rates.

- Category: Finance
- Price: Free
This app features current exchange rates for over 190+ currencies and four precious metals (platinum, palladium, silver, gold) which are presented in a very simple, attractive interface. The simplicity of this app makes it perfect for frequent travelers, financial businesspeople, or anyone interested in world economics.
A nice added feature is the ability to choose and apply a commission rate. The commission rate basically deducts a percentage from the exchange, which may be taken as a fee by an ATM, credit card, or exchange kiosk (like those you find in an airport).
As an aside: for U.S. residents, this app may be a little depressing in that $1.00 USD only buys you 0.621 British Pounds or 0.717 Euros.
- Real-time exchange rate updates and conversions
- 190+ currencies and 4 precious metals
- Calculate typical commission rates charged by banks, credit cards, and other services
Areas for improvement:
- Option to save an applied commission rate
- Expand widget options to display multiple currencies at once
Conclusion: An essential reference tool for anyone who travels internationally or enjoys paying close attention to the world’s financial market.
