Description

Elk is the fastest way to convert currencies on your trips.

It knows where you are, and automatically picks the right currency for you.

It does away with cumbersome keypad entry, and makes converting currencies fast and fun.

On the iPhone, Elk is a handy and interactive rates table.

It picks a suitable starting value, and converts the next ten values to your home currency.

Swipe left to increase these values; swipe right to decrease them. Tap on a value for more accuracy. Or press deeply on an iPhone 6s or later to peek.

On the Apple Watch, Elk is optimized for watchOS 3. It launches instantly, and is ready to convert whenever you raise your wrist.

You tap, swipe and rotate the Digital Crown to convert currencies.

Elk is free to download, and offers a 2-week trial of the Pro version where you have access to all currencies.

Editors' Notes

It’s not every day something as simple as a currency converter can be revolutionized. But this Apple Design Award winner has done it—especially on Apple Watch. Elk uses your location to determine the currency and ditches typing numbers in favour of showing 10 conversions at all times. The result is a fast, intuitive, and wonderfully smooth experience that takes the pain out of one part of travelling.

Brilliant

I used this for a day, paid for it, then noticed the next day that the rate had changed - great!! But I Couldn’t remember yesterday’s so i set the custom rate- assuming that there would be some way of undoing that and going back to normal functions. If there is I haven’t found it and it isnt in the instructions. So i have ruined my ability to use the app to see changing values. If someone replies to this and lets me know how to fix it I will happily up this rating - especially if it gets put into the instructions.
Later: found that there are two ways of accessing rates - it saves the custom rates in a separate area and I was able to choose either the custom or current rate, so very happy with this.

Pretty great! Just one annoyance...

This app is great and well worth getting! The only annoyance with the Watch app is that it resets whatever value you’ve entered when it updates the current exchange rate. This means you often open the app, start selecting a value, then half way through doing it the value gets reset and you have to start over again. If they can fix this it’d be perfect.
