Convert prices in the country you're currently in to your local currency. The currency to convert from is automatically chosen based on which country you are currently in—without needing a Wi-Fi or data connection (which you often don't have when traveling). Your home currency is based on your Phone's region setting. If you are in your home country, you can manually choose a currency to convert from which is great when you're planning a holiday.

• It is now possible to change your “home currency” (i.e. the currency to convert to)
• Improve synchronization between iPhone and Apple Watch
• Various bug fixes and optimizations

That should not be required to look up currencies offline. Can't even use it!

Sad to hear that my app didn't work at all for your use case. The app is intentionally made to be quick and easy for use while travelling, so it expects to be able find out which country you're in automatically – so that you can just open the app and enter a price you're seeing, wherever you are. No data is sent anywhere, and everything happens on the phone, so you don't need a data connection to look up the country.
Would love to hear more about your use cases, though. Message me at Twitter (@ehamberg) if you're interested. I'd be happy to have my mind changed! :)
At first I was put off by the lack of settings. Then I realized I didn't need any settings and the app did the correct thing.
Using the Digital Crown to input prices on the watch is clever and works well for counties where the difference in currency is small. However for countries which are like 20x the home currency you wind up spinning the Dial a lot between some cheap street food and a nice dinner. I wouldn't mind having the option to have the calculator style interface on the watch as well
This is just what I needed! I was looking for an currency converter I could use off-line while I'm standing in the store or market, staring at a price tag. I don't even have to scroll down a list of countries to find the local currency; it is automatically there on my phone. Easy and convenient! Thank you!
