When you’ve planned a holiday abroad, besides considering what clothes to pack the issue of money will inevitably come into play. How much will the trip cost? How much spending money should I save? And then the big one: What’s the currency exchange rates like?
www.xe.com is one of the most popular exchange rate sites on the Web. It has released a handy app for people that want to be updated with currency exchange information by the minute.
The XE Currency app allows users to convert any type of world currency anywhere. It even allows you to check the prices on precious metals.
Not only can you check the up to date status of any world currency, you can even look up how particular currencies performed in the past. The app generates charts to make this easy to interpret.
The currency converter also makes it easy to calculate prices when you exchange one currency for another.
But the best part of XE Currency is the ability to customise. You can choose your desired currencies to be displayed on the front page so you can see rates at a glance.
No, I take that back. The best part of XE Currency is that it’s free.

Pros: Great layout, extremely useful, ability to customise, everything
