These days we are no longer confined to the country in which we live. We travel so much more than our ancestors. I can tell you that I have friends and family scattered in a few different countries overseas. This means that when I can afford it, I am able to have a great holiday while visiting! A small problem is converting my $US to other currencies. I used to check the current rates in the papers or online, use my calculator, do an extravagant calculation of varying dollar amounts, and record them in a notebook. Wow...I can't believe how much time I spent on that!

Life is a lot simpler now with currency converters. One of my favorites is Currency Banknotes by TechiXoft. It takes less than 30 seconds to input your native currency and convert it to the one of your choice. Additionally, it shows the flags and photographic representations of both currencies. Also, there are beautiful graphics of the actual paper bills which is a great help in knowing what to expect when I reach my destination. Here are some of the helpful and unique features of this iPhone currency conversion app:

- See colored images of paper bills from numerous countries worldwide
- Convert over 150 global currencies in real time
- Zoom in and out of banknote images
- Instantly calculate the conversion rates of the top 10 currencies of the world
- See pictures of rare banknotes or currency images

Your opening display of Currency Banknotes gives you four optional screens with which to work: Converter, Major Currencies, Images and Info. The default screen starts you off in the Converter mode. Here is a box in which you insert the desired currency amount, the flags representing the native and destination countries from which you will convert to the desired currency, and Convert button. Just tap the 1st flag and scroll down till you see your native country. Go to the 2nd flag, tap and scroll to the country of your choice then tap Convert after entering your amount. This function is absolutely invaluable for traveling and other need-to-know purposes, and it is oh-so-simple to use!

Perhaps you choose to see the top 10 Major Currencies (under its own button) which is useful if you check currency rates daily for financial and educational reasons. This mode is also super helpful when you are traveling and don't want to waste time scrolling to find your specific country. Just one tap does it all here! In the next mode, tap the Images button to view currency from many different nations. Now this is a truly unique feature! Scroll through to view them all, then pinch and zoom to clearly see all details. This is such an educational and beneficial mode for enjoying the beautiful artwork and history shown on all currencies. Let the kids learn the design and look of money from other countries, as well as enjoy learning about rare paper currencies. Finally, for help in navigating this well-organized app, use the Info button for clear and simple instructions.

Useful and productive apps are always something to keep permanently on your device. Currency Banknotes is exactly this with its many functions that suit everyone whether traveling or not. It is well designed and works so smoothly with a conveniently easy user interface. Don't miss out on this tool which is designed to make life simple and stress-free on your travels!
