BNZ Convert It is a currency converter. It uses your camera to scan prices, converting them to New Zealand dollars instantly – and even works offline.
When you’re outside of New Zealand and connected to the internet, Convert It can detect the local currency of the country you’re in so you can get an idea of what you might be spending before you make a purchase.
The app uses the latest mid-market rates that are accessible when your device is connected to the Internet. Those rates are then saved to your device until you’re next online. Those rates are not able to be transacted on by consumers. See our FAQs for more information.

Great idea, conceptually...
... but the converted rate is just an ‘indication’. I don’t know what additional fees will be charged, or what the actual rate at conversion time will be, so all I have is a vague idea of what an item will really cost...
... I also found the scanner to be quite unreliable, unless the digits are very clear and digital, it did not correctly detect hand-written prices, and auto-detecting a currency was even less usable.
This is going to be so helpful when travelling, especially to places where the exchange rate is so far removed from NZD that it’s hard to guesstimate. Much quicker than typing into Google, and you don’t need the internet! Love it!
It’s really easy to use and works offline which is great when you’re in and out of reception!!
