Ratings and Reviews
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 favor 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 traveling.
Elk will automatically update the exchange rate table online, even if you are offline, you can use the previous exchange rate value; it will also get the geographical location information, automatically select the local currency and the popular exchange currency for you; other currencies and set the custom exchange rate All of them can be set by clicking on the top currency name of Elk. Elk offers a two-week full-featured free trial. After the trial, the app will only open the function of converting popular currency to local currency for free, and pay $25 to unlock all currencies and custom exchange rates.
Needs multiply currencies displayed
What the app has done, it has done well (Except the lock screen implementation is not live.) However it is still not my go to converter app since it lacks multiply currencies. There is lots of room on the display unused, why not create additional columns for additional currencies. An auto font resizing based on the amount of currencies being converted would be the best emplementation. The app also provided CAD to me for free but did not provide it to my friend, go figure.
For me I still prefer to use the app called Converter+, includes multiply currencies and converts anything to anything.
