When Rehan Saeed contacted me to say he was building a currency converter application for Windows Phone 7 I’ll admit that initially I felt a little underwhelmed by the idea… until I saw his app that is…
Apart from looking great and having up-to-date rates for every currency under the sun*, it has three other features I really like:
- Instant selection of interbank rate vs credit card vs cash rates
- A ready reckoner (how much is £1 / £5 / £10 in $ ?)
- A banknote view so you can see what the currency looks like
I’m looking forward to seeing it in the Marketplace in the very near future.
* I didn’t see the drogna listed but I’m not sure it counts.
