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. 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
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.
Update includes minor fixes and optimisations for global currencies:
- Improved number scaling
- Optimized recognition and conversion for global currency formats
- General performance improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Worked perfect for me
This was amazing on my trip to Japan. Rates are saved and updated next time you have Internet. Recognition was not perfect, but doesn’t need Internet so can’t complain. If I needed I could just type in the price. So this is a great tool and the best of its kind I’ve found!!
Great app, one flaw
Just experienced this app in Hong Kong, which worked great for the most part but one annoying flaw is that it keeps defaulting to USD. I expected the IP recognition to place me in Hong Kong and adjust currency but only randomly occurred. For the most part I had to manually change to HKD but the next time I needed to convert it was back in USD. The ability to save a preferred default would be very handy and make the app virtually perfect.
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!
