Kurrency – iOS app review
Bang for buck: It’s free!
Ease of use:
Here’s another currency conversion app that basically “allows you to convert almost all the currencies of the world into your national currency.” Touting itself as the first currency conversion app designed for iOS 7, Kurrency is keeping things simple – there are only two screens in the app: the main conversion screen and the auxiliary currency selection screen.
The main screen lets you convert from one currency to another just by entering any amount. You can tap the bidirectional arrow icon to swap the currencies for reverse conversion.
Tap either of the two currency symbols in the main screen to go to the auxiliary screen and then select a different currency by scrolling through the list or simply by searching for a specific country or currency. It’d have been nice to see the currencies listed alphabetically, or country-wise.
Similar to other currency conversion apps, Kurrency requires an online connection to download the latest exchange rates. But according to its App Store description, Kurrency is able to perform conversions whether online or offline, which didn’t work when we tested!
