Currency Converter is a simple tool that was created to serve a sole purpose, namely that of performing conversions based on the latest currency exchange rates.
The user interface is rather plain and you will be able to easily find your way through this program, regardless of your experience level.
First of all, you have to update the database (just hit the "Update" button in the toolbar menu), so an active Internet connection is a must. Then you can import the currency rates you want to work with, from a large database of roughly 220 world currencies.
Now you can use the "Preferred" option to create a new profile when it comes to converting currencies. Add new items to the list by setting the "Left" and "Right" currency and giving your profile a name.
In addition, you can use "Cross Rates" to view multiple currency rates at once, as well as use "World" to view one currency rate at a time.
The application uses a very low amount of system resources, comes with a step-by-step user guide (that contains snapshots) and didn't freeze or crash during our tests.
However, the interface could definitely use some improvements. Otherwise, Currency Converter is a great tool for checking currency rates, especially when you don't have an Internet connection available.
