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.

After I click the refresh icon at the bottom left hand side,
cpu usage of dashboardclient rises up to 9x%.

I open console and it shows:

THERE IS A BUG IN IT! Safari quit unexpectedly & after re-launch got an alert - "Safari settings have been changed. Do you want to use new settings?"

Also the same thing that COMPUTERNAUT describes below happened to me.

I don't know about Safari crashing, but I can surely say that this isn't due to my widget, since you are only downloading a zip file.

As regards the exclamation badge it's because due to a problem with my server and I noticed that yesterday you downloaded the old version of the widget (0.4.1) and not the new one.

The "New version available" exclamation icon in the lower-left part of the widget resists in disappearing, even if I'm actually using the newest version right now.

The same problem. I hope in a correct future version without this confusing icon. In my opinion, that widget is excellent. To achieve 5 stars developers have to remove that annoying message. Thanks for good work - I see also Slovak koruna in a list of currencies. I didn't hope that is possible. :-)

Now it's 99.9% perfect. Only thing missing, is the Euro currency in the ECB list. :-)

Well, the euro currency for the ecb list it's missing because it's the reference point of the ecb values, so it's the same as the other euro!

Absolutely Great!! It works flawlessly.

But I have one question:

I was previously using Euro Assistant Pro X 2.6.8 (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/7265), but Euro Assistant and the Currency Converter showed different results for the same currencies. I did some research and gathered that it must be due to the fact that I've had Euro Assistant set to query the European Central Bank, whereas when I changed to Bank of Canada, both programs gave the exact same results.

So I'm wondering, is it possible for you to make a preference option, to chooce which bank to query? I'd prefer to keep using European Central Bank instead of Bank of Canada...

Here are the addresses for the 3 major banks:

European Central Bank: http://www.ecb.int/stats/exchange/eurofxref/html/index.en.html

Bank of Canada: http://www.bankofcanada.ca/fmd/exchange.html

International Monetary Fund: http://www.imf.org/external/np/fin/rates/rms_rep.cfm

Thanks for your appreciation!

The currency data I use comes from the yahoo finance service, which is lively updated (with a 20 minutes delay).
The european bank data instead it's updated only once a day; I could create an option to use that data, but it would be inconsistent with the other world currencies data which comes from the yahoo service, so I don't know if it's a good thing.

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
