Visual Currency Converter is an augmented reality app that allows the conversion of the value of notes put in front of the camera to the currency of your choice.
The conversion rates are updated from a live feed every time the app is launched to ensure accuracy. A confidence level for how good the match is to the note recognised is also displayed to assist getting the note in the correct position to be read.
The following currencies are supported and can manually selected:
Hong Kong Dollar
New Zealand Dollar
or automatic mode can be selected to detect the currency based on the current user location.
The notes detected for each currency are the latest release of each note value in circulation.

Ratings and Reviews
Cool, simple and works seamlessly
I like this app - have tried it with some old holiday money - just pointed the iPhone 5s camera at the notes and it converted them automatically into the Stirling equivalent at real time exchange rates. Not bad - seems to do about 13 currencies at the moment and is free - so I don't see a down side
I've been looking for an app like this as I am so bad at remembering and working out conversion rates when I'm on holiday. This makes it so easy! I've tried it on a few different notes I have lying around and it definitely works!
So cool that it auto detects the currency. Really easy to use. Brilliant app, would recommend.
