Currency Converter overview

Note: Currency Converter is no longer under development and the developer provides no support for it.

Currency Converter is a very useful widget to easily calculate currency conversions between more than 200 world currencies (I think every traded currency in the world, more than any other converter!), plus many digital currencies including Bitcoin and Litecoin, all the old legacy European currencies, some world legacy currencies, some commodities (including gold and silver) and even unrecognized currencies! Supports interface skins, inverse currency conversion, and expressions evaluation.

Features:

  • Automatically updated exchange rates
  • Support all the traded currencies of the world
  • Support the old legacy European currencies (like Italian lira, Deutsch mark, French francs) and other legacy currencies of the world
  • Support multiple currencies conversions (you can add all the currencies you want to the conversion table)
  • Support multiple widget instances, so that you can keep open more than a conversion table, each with a set of preferred currencies
  • You can choose the desired decimal precision, from 1 to 5 decimals
  • You can evaluate expressions (ex. 10+10, 10*3,2, etc.)
  • You can sort currencies by name, by ISO code or by countries (all the countries of the world are listed!)
  • You can calculate the exchange taxes setting the exchange taxes rate (for example 2% for credit cards)
  • You can do inverse conversion, too! Just enter * in a currency value field and you'll get the current rate for that currency vs the other currencies in the table
  • Localized in English, Italian, Portuguese, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Swedish, Polish, Greek, Serbian, Russian, Turkish, Traditional Chinese and Japanese (all the currency names are localized, too). Help me with the localization in other languages
  • You can choose an interface theme between Blackboard (the new default theme), Blackboard basic (without the currency sign and currency flag), Mini (useful for small screens), Mini translucent (semitransparent), and European (the old default theme). More will be added in the future, you can suggest to me your ideas about them
  • Data can also be updated manually clicking on the orange button on the bottom left of the widget: anyway, starting from version 0.9.5, this only works once per hour, to avoid the overload of my server. Anyway, other products only allow you to download data once or twice a day

Will you be making a notifications version so I can add this to my quick-screen in Catalina? I used this app a lot as a widget, was sorry to see it go.

Unfortunately Apple has killed the Dashboard in Catalina. I liked this little widget very much and used almost daily. Can the developer make it as a regular application ?

Works well, does what it says .... and the link should read: http://www.widgets.palple.net/currencyconverter/CurrencyConverter.zip The link as supplied omits the 'www' and hence fails.

OK, now you have dropped the support for PPC, can you at least disable the check for updates in version 1.8 ?

I have used this widget for about 6 years. It's great. Make sure you include gold ounces as one one your currencies, as a daily reminder of the speed our overlords are debasing our money. I also use the iPhone widget.

Must have widget. It should be included with the OS X. The only thing I rarely see is that sometimes it "lags". What I mean is, I open dashboard, try to enter an amount, but the letters are entered very very slowly. It doesn't have any effect to the calculation however. Maybe it is fixed on 1.9, I couldn't test it until now.

I have enjoyed having Currency Converter for quite a while now. But I'm reluctant to install the latest version, called Convertitore Valute. If the developer failed to convert his Italian name into English, what else did he forget?

When I download this and unzip it, the name of the widget has apparently changed to 'Convertitore Valute'. Is this correct?

Currency Converter works well; but, every time I use it, it requires a new "update". This gets very annoying after a while - as I now have a dozen of these previous versions of the widget on my hard-drive. . . Paul Hamilton
