Currency conversion isn’t something you normally do everyday, but when you need to do a currency conversion, you want it to be quick and easy. Currenci is a new travel companion that delivers a streamlined interface to get you converting as quickly as possible. The app begins by letting you entering a number to convert right away. You simply swipe up to add a new currency from a list of hundreds, and you can make multiple currency conversions at once. A swipe down updates the current exchange rates. The app also includes eight different themes to choose from, which essentially just change the color scheme of the highlighted units.
The highlight of Currenci is the today widget to make currency conversion as effortless as possible. Once you add the widget to Notification Center, the widget shows the top two currencies you entered, and you can type out an amount right within Notification Center to see the conversion right then and there. It’s great to see unique valuable utilities keep coming to Notification Center, as many of these functions don’t always need a full blown app. You can open the full Currenci app by tapping the “C” in the widget to then switch out currency types, which will also be saved to the widget for future use.
Currenci (Free, iPhone) is a focused and valuable utility that comes in quite handy if you ever want to convert currency.
