Ever had difficulty converting currencies? Especially before currency apps was ever produced, many of us would really just visit the money changer or use the browser on our phones, surfing financial sites like XE.com to convert and check currency rates online. This video is an introduction to the ingenius Currency App by Simple Simple.
By now, I am sure the few important points to note when making apps is to ensure that it is fundamentally easy to use, attractive, functional and stays updated. The app has got a really neat and minimal interface design. It allows very easy and quick access to rate conversions over 160 currencies with the most up to date data. Alex Penny, the designer of Currency has placed in a lot of hard work for this beautiful app.
Some of the notable interface designs I particular like is the swiping action for the increment and decrement of digits. By swiping to the left you pull a long digit increment and the rates almost changes on the spot. Very effective and functional. The interesting graphic flags are also an eye candy for the user. You could easily manoveour the number of currencies by swiping up and down as well. With the up and down as well as left and right actions using the thumb alone, it effectively saves a lot of tapping action. It is fast and well positioned for the thumb. Coupled with a great Swiss inspired design aesthetic, this definitely one of the must have Currency apps around.
