Simple Interface

iCurrencyPad was designed to be fast and easy to use. Just select the currencies to convert and tap in the amount to convert. A convenient calculator allows for basic math calculations, showing the results as the values are tapped. Swipe across the display to swap the left and right currencies, or swipe up and down to select different currencies. Tap and hold to copy/paste.

Favorite Currencies

While iCurrencyPad offers exchange rates for 150+ currencies from around the world, you may be interested in only a few currencies. To reduce clutter on the screen, iCurrencyPad allows you to select and sort your Favorite Currencies, so only those currencies that interest you appear on the screen, thereby making the application easier and faster to use.


Detailed charts show the history of exchange rates for any two currencies. Tap on the chart for the exchange rate on any particular day. Tap with two fingers to show the change in rates between any two dates. Rotate the device for a larger chart in landscape view. Charts for most currencies are available for 1-day, 5-days, 3-months, 6-months, 1-year, 2-years, 5-years and 10-years.

Exchange Rates Listing

The exchange rates listing shows a base currency compared to all other currencies, similar to the electronic exchange rate boards seen in "Change" shops around the world.

Exchange Rates Updates

iCurrencyPad updates Exchange Rates on demand, or automatically at pre-defined intervals ranging from 15 seconds to 1 day. Exchange Rates are automatically updated when the app is launched, or auto-updates can be turned off when roaming. An Internet connection is required to update rates, either via cellular network or a Wifi connection. Without a connection, rates can still be accessed and converted using the last data downloaded.

Data Sources

iCurrencyPad supports two data sources; Yahoo, and The Yahoo source offers exchange rates for 150+ currencies and is suitable for travelers the world over. The source offers exchange rates for 60+ major currencies, with near real-time quotes and percent change from the prior day, suitable for fx traders in need of accurate up-to-the-minute exchange rates of major currencies.


A short 20-second tutorial will play when you first launch iCurrencyPad.


The user interface is offered in 9 languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Arabic. Please visit the App Store in your language for a translated description and screenshots.
