    have you seen the free Visual Currency Converter app on Android? Quite
    an innovative idea. It scans and instantly converts price tags in 149

    Post misses the relevant information on a currency converter app. But it is okay since the developers of them do as well. We want an app that does NOT get up to the second information on currency values. We want an app that does NOT use any sort of online functions in a foreign country. We want an app that lets us enter the values of the currency as we paid for it, not some arbitrary number from an on
    Ine source we can’t even access. Nd by we, I mean the casual travelers the post refers to. Whoever wrote it has no clue.

    Hey guys, I read this article (and others) about two weeks ago and tried out the apps. I wasn’t completely happy with any of them so I decided to make my own. It would be great if you could maybe check it out as it was accepted by Apple today. I don’t know if it’s good enough to make it onto your list, you will obviously have to be the judge of that, but would be great to get some feedback and see what features you would like to have? The app is called Currency King.
