==Easy to use interface==
eCurrency interface is designed for ease of use. Just start the application and type in the amount you want to convert and eCurrency converts instantly. Tap on one of the flags to change the currency you want to convert to. A built-in calculator allows for math calculations. The current exchange rate and rate change compared to the previous day is conveniently displayed in the main interface.
eCurrency supports over 200 currencies. The “Favorites” functionality allows you to define the currency pairs you use as favorites. To create a new favorite go into the “Settings” and touch the “+” Button. You can swipe through all your favorites on the main calculation interface just as you swipe the pages on the iPhone’s home screen.
== Charts and Historic Rates==
eCurrency provides detailed historical charts for all exchange rates. Just rotate the device to landscape, to view the chart for the active currency pair. You can switch the chart display between a 1-week, 1-month, 3-month, 6-month, 1-year, 2-year or 5-year period. Tap on the chart to display the exact exchange rate tor a particular day. Tap and hold to use a specific exchange rate for historic calculations.
== Exchange Rate Updates ==
eCurrency updates exchange rates automatically on every start-up or on demand. You can turn off automatic updates to avoid roaming costs. The conversion and calculation functionally works completely offline using the latest downloaded exchange rates; the display of historical charts requires an active internet connection.
eCurrency is not dependant on any single data-source. The application obtains its exchange rates from our self-developed Currency-Provider-engine that aggregates rates data from multiple sources to secure the reliability of exchange rate updates.

Ratings and Reviews
It has a feature I could not find in any other app: the ability to enter custom exchange rates, which more accurately reflect what I actually get at the bank or money changer. One never gets the official rate, so apps that have no alternative to it give you an inaccurate picture of what that Oriental carpet is really costing you in your home currency.
Can't wait for my next trip abroad to try it out.
UPDATE: The program is 32-bits, and will soon be unable to run in the latest iOS. It has not been updated for almost 4.5 years. Downgraded to 3 stars.
ORIGINAL: The program works well.
Improvements that could be done:
1. It's a bit confusing when entering in the number of currency units. The value you are editing is gray, and the resulting number is white. To me, gray indicates the field is not editable, when, in this case, it is A little triangle does indicate the conversion direction.
2. When adding a new conversion, you can't specify the currencies at the point of adding them. This is done back on the main screen, it's an extra, some what confusing step.
Developer Response ,
Update is now available - on time for the iOS 11 release!
Good currency converter
I have been using this program for nearly half a year. It is up to date and requires relatively few keystrokes to operate. You can choose the rate from the three letter currency name. One minor changes would convince me to give it 5 stars:
• give users a choice of how to order the currency that you want to shift from and to. It would be nice if the list could be sorted by date of last use, country name, currency name, etc. Finally, it would be great to provide a graph of currency rate over time.
