It has lots of business-oriented features, such as rates for precious metals and historical currency charts, but for the traveller, it is most useful for the simple fact that it’s able to convert every world currency. It also functions offline by saving the last updated rates, which is great if you’re in a place with limited connectivity or trying to save on data.
