September 23, 2011 in Finance (E)

[] Los Angeles, California - Praised for being "easy to use and well-thought out" by AppVader, the popular app website also applauded Currency Banknotes for being simple and user-friendly. Additionally, iPhone Apps Review Online marked the app as "strongly recommended" and mentioned that it "has features more than its value." Currency Banknotes also received good reviews from iPhone Footprint and What's On iPhone, and was labeled as "fantastic" and "classy," respectively.

Currency Banknotes also managed to turn heads of travel bloggers. Aviation Queen called the app "cool" for its dual purposes of converting currencies and showcasing banknotes images. Similarly, Wandering Justin also published a post featuring the app, and commended the "clever thinking" behind Currency Banknotes.

The app currently has a 4.5 star rating in the App Store. For the most part, Currency Banknotes garnered stellar reviews, along with a few constructive comments along the way. "We are grateful for the attention that we received from the iPhone community," said TechiXoft CEO John Nicasio. "It's great to be part of a vocal and opinionated bunch, because they tell us exactly what we're doing right, and what needs to be changed. We're actively monitoring feedback from users, to gather insights on what can be improved with the app."

Currency Banknotes reached the Finance Top Paid lists in App Stores outside the US, where the app ranked as number 11 in Canda and number 5 in Finland. It also reached high ranks under the "Top Grossing" category, where it took the top spot in Lativa, and claimed the first runner up title in Estonia. Moreover, the app was named as "New and Noteworthy" in Greece.

About Currency Banknotes:
Currency Banknotes is a currency converter app that lets users view currency images. Aside from being able to convert over 150 currencies around the world, people will be able to see paper bill images for each country. The Currency Banknotes app displays a total of nearly 1000 currency images, including rare and hard-to-find banknotes. Users can even zoom in and out of the images to see the paper bills in full detail. All the paper bill images are stored in the app's wide database, allowing users to browse through the Currency Banknotes gallery even without an Internet connection.

Another distinct feature of the app is its "Top 10 Currencies" tab, in which users will be able to instantly calculate the top 10 currencies of the world, all in one page. Instead of individually crunching the numbers for each of the 10 major currencies, the app simply computes everything with one touch of a button.

Beyond the Finance Category:
While Currency Banknotes is officially filed under the Finance category of the App Store, Nicasio believes that the app will fit in well under Travel, Utilities, or even Entertainment. "We have a lot of feedback regarding the usefulness and convenience of Currency Banknotes, but at the same time, we've been told the image gallery of the app is also very entertaining. Turns out, people are really fond of viewing different currency images because they provide a glimpse of foreign cultures through their paper bills.
