Currency Converter Plus Calculator - A combination of a Currency Converter with a full-featured calculator, perfect for travel shopping!
To use it, select any two currencies by clicking on the flags. Whatever figure you enter using the calculator is shown simultaneously in both currencies.
To enter an exchange fee (commission) do Menu -> Settings -> Select a commission rate. The default is zero. When you enter a commission the exchange rate is adjusted to give you the amount net of the commission, with the commission you are paying shown in both currencies.
Supports 146 currencies (everything in Yahoo Finance) plus Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium.
The percent button works differently than a regular calculator (but it is more useful), it is used to subtract a discount. When a merchant gives you a discount, for example, 10% on a $100 purchase, use it like this:
100 % 10 = 90
You can see a list of all the currencies with the exchange rates by using: Menu -> See all currencies. The list has the currency symbol, the name, the countries that use the currency and the exchange rate (both ways) into whatever currency you selected as the From currency.
The major currencies are listed first, then the rest in alphabetical order by country. Rates are updated from Yahoo Finance. There is an option in the settings to update automatically every time that you open the app. To refresh manually do Menu -> Update from Yahoo
There are also options in the menu for a 1-click call to find currency exchange locations and banks. These options use the Google Maps app. Most phones have the Google Maps app pre-installed, but if not you can download the Google Maps app from the Android Market yourself.
Note: The app uses the SD Card to store the rates.You cannot use this app while you are connected to your PC via USB.
I am always happy to add new features and improvements. If you like this app and find it useful, please post a review to let other Android users know of the app.
