January 19, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

If you’re someone that travels internationally a lot, Currency FX is a great app to keep on your phone. It’s a pretty simple app, and has really only one purpose and that’s to tell you the exchange rate. These exchange rates do vary sometimes, and it’s helpful to know what the current rate is. Especially for those that are traveling to China, Hong Kong, India, or another country that uses cash more than credit and debit cards. This way you’ll be able to catch a cab with ease, other than the language barrier.

The user interface in Currency FX is pretty simple, all you need to do is pick your two currencies, for instance the US Dollar to the Euro, and then see how much one US Dollar is in Euros. It’s pretty quick and pretty easy as well. So this way when you are paying for dinner at a restaurant in Spain or Germany, you can see how much it is in US Dollars, if you’re from the US. Always an important thing, as you don’t want to be paying too much for dinner or anything else, when you’re traveling abroad. The app contains 150 different currencies, as well as 5 different metals, including gold and silver. So you’re more than likely going to be able to find the currency you’re looking for.

On top of figuring out the exchange rate, you can also see data for the past month, three months or a year, to see how the rate has changed in recent months. Something else that can be relatively important for those traveling. As these things do tend to change, as even the Euro isn’t as strong as it once was. Additionally, within the app you can favorite some currencies, so they’ll show up in your favorite list. So if you travel to a neighboring country often, it’ll be much easier to find out the exchange rate, and faster.

Right now, the app Currency FX is available on the Google Play Store and is available for free. There are no in-app purchases either. It’s a great app to have when you’re traveling. Definitely very helpful.
