Currency trading has seen many people either make their fortune or lose a bundle of cash. It was only a few years ago that the average person could trade from the comfort of their own home, via a multitude of online trading platforms. However, it was often difficult to stay in the know and have up to the second information at your fingertips. With that being said, it seems as though a great iPhone app has been created to ensure you stay ahead of the crowd.
The XE Currency app has a free and pro (paid) edition and allows you to convert every world currency. In fact, there are over 180 currencies for you to convert via the app. Just in case you were wondering what the difference between the free and the pro version are, well there’s only two – the pro version has absolutely no advertisements and allows you to simultaneously monitor 20 currencies (10 with the free version).
You will find live rates and the last updated rates can also be stored via the app. In essence this is a currency calculator with a vast number of additional features. The app has now been downloaded over 14 million times. It has previously held the position of “app of the week” on iTunes and has been featured by a number of high profile media platforms, including the BBC, CNN, the LA Times and the Travel Channel.
