[prMac.com] Tokyo, Japan - Announcing that Limited Securities, the developers of iCurrency Plus, has launched the successful application to Mac OSX together with the recently released Mac App Store. The application tracks and evaluates currency exchange rates, as well as provides trends, graphs and a currency conversion calculator. iCurrency Plus is currently the only currency tracker app on the store. It is the perfect example of 'Simplicity to the Extreme'.
What do travelers, Forex and precious metal traders all have in common? Exchange rates. Changes in currencies, whether domestic or foreign, can affect profit, as well as affordability. A wise person watches for the best opportunity before purchasing or selling money or foreign goods, to avoid paying more than necessary.
All of that just makes sense but it can get complicated and labor intensive to monitor daily exchange activity and trends. If that's your full time job, fine. Otherwise, it is a daunting task for people to locate and keep tabs on currency for two different countries. Then of course, the figures need to be compared and converted.
The developers at Limited Securities have created a much simpler solution. It's called iCurrency Plus v1.1.0. The application is downloaded to a user's Mac through the recently released Mac App Store, where it sets to work taking care of all the details. The easy, intuitive interface makes operation a snap, while the full list of features offers true flexibility.
With iCurrency Plus, users get the following features:
* Add currency pairs of choice (not only currencies versus the USD)
* See the change in value over a period of time of your choice
* Get notified in the app if this change is larger than a percentage you choose
* The same notification can be seen using Growl: no other app has this
* See pair details for the period you chose, including min and max value
* See several graphs to check trends: daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly
* Convert prices on the spot, quite useful if you are traveling
* More than 90 currencies used in more than 150 countries
* Intuitive interface, very easy to use
* Favorite currency pair can be seen in the menu bar all the time
* Currencies can be added per request on the fly, no need to update the application
While all of these functions are great, there are two that stands out from the rest. They are notifications using Growl and the ability to show one of the currency pairs in the menu bar at all times. iCurrency Plus is the only application offering these capabilities, which are indispensable to anyone who is keeping a close eye on exchange rates. Users can be notified of rate variances, predetermined by the user's choice of percentage spreads.
A user can find out what a foreign object costs in their native currency before deciding if they want to make the purchase, thanks to the handy currency converter in this app. It's a feature that appeals to business and vacation travelers, alike. Some online shoppers think of it as an interpreter, only for money rather than language.
Trends are important to a lot of people and this app provides them, along with colorful charts for quick reference. Users get to select the time period that they want to see, whether daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or even yearly.
This application should prove to be a winner, not just because it saves time, work and money but also because it is so versatile and easy to use. Most currency apps can compare the US dollar with other currencies. iCurrency Plus can compare units from any of the ninety (and counting) currencies from over one hundred countries.
Limited Securities developers encourage users to find iCurrency Plus on sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Wordpress, where they offer free updates and the latest news. Simplicity to the extreme. It's a beautiful turn of phrase that describes this application perfectly.
* Mac computer running OSX 10.6.6
