Comparison of free Currency Converter apps for iOS

March 28, 2011

There is a whole bunch of currency converters available for iOS devices (iPhone, iPod, iPad) that are either free or paid. While most of them do the same job – of providing exchange rates from one currency to other – we have compared five of them below. If you have a favorite app for this purpose then do let us know in your comments and we will gladly add it here.
