Currency features 146 currencies, the 13 old Euro cuurencies and 10 fully configurable entries for user defined currencies or trade quantities.
A fully configurable display enables the synchronous conversion of up to 8 simulataneous currencies.
The exchange rate date is stored for each individual currency, providing an easy mechanism for assessing the validity period of critical rates.
A visual warning marks outdated rates. A fully functional algebraic calculator and a single button tax adder / subtractor simplify common arithmetic operations.
The exchange rates can be updated by downloading a small daily updated currency database (cupdate.pdb) and syncing it to your PalmOS device.
The update is done daily around 18:00/18:30 UTC with the spot exchange rates for 146 currencies.
The java conduit from Tim Endres used in previous Currency versions to automate the update of the currency database has been adapted to the current versions of HotSync.
It is also included in the zip file and contains a fix to make java based conduits work with HotSync 6.0.x.
- Adds support for the fiveway navigator on devices like T5, LifeDrive, TX, Treo 600, 650, 680, 700p

I just downloaded it, and after a quick use I can say it is very impressive. The option to update the currencies is great.

I have a Currency program with on-line updates on my desktop, and I have compared the exchange rates over the last weeks with those in this little gem... and they matched exactly. So now I can have the up-to-datecurrencies with me. Thanks to the programmer for this wonderful little utility!!!

The up-to-date and accurate currency exchange rate is automatically updated every time you sync your pda. I would highly recomend this.

Those who dont like it using the Euro can get stuffed, I live in New Zealand and I dont have a problem with it. This is an amazing program, and highly recommended.

Americans can get nicked. This is a superb program.

Uses the Euro as the base currency, which is not very convenient for Americans. Also, home page (for downloading rate changes) is dead.

VERY GOOD. Exchange Rate Updates are now available at http://www.braunstein.de/palm/currency/ The original homepage does not exist any more.
