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.”
