πŸ‘‹ Hello Product Hunt! My name is Alex Mezhevikin. I’m an indie developer from πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί Russia. I’d like to present my Currency converter for iOS. πŸ€” Problem In my opinion, an ideal currency converter should have: βœ” Offline mode for traveling. βœ” All world currencies. βœ” Widget, to convert fast. βœ” Calculator (+ - Γ— Γ·). βœ” Work with the clipboard. βœ” Search currency by name, alternate name, code. βœ” Data Source Independence. βœ” Individual currency list for each user. βœ” Main world languages. βœ” Nice user interface. There is no app in the Appstore that can do all this. So I decided to make own app. 🀘Solution On 1 August, I released the first version to AppStore. I developed the app alone in 3 months. The app was written in Swift 5, also I use Laravel for the server-side. My server aggregates exchange rates from 5 different providers. So the app does not depend on one data source. πŸ’΅ Monetization The app is free but contains ads. For those who do not like ads, there is a premium account for $3 per year. πŸ“… Plans Later I’d like to port my app to the web, Android and Apple Watch. 😊 I can't wait to hear what you think. Please do not hesitate to ask me any question. πŸ™ Thank you very much!

@ream88 Thank you! All features except widget are available without subscription.
@ream88 I want the product to be available to everyone. Premium in this case is an opportunity to support the developer and disable ads.

Hi, Alex. Does currency converter have ability to add a real rate from exchange desk for example? The rate of the Central Bank and the actual rate at the airport exchange are usually different.

@stadnikova_julia Hi. Thanks for your question. App use Mid-Market Exchange Rate. To make a currency converter that will know the exchange rate for each exchange office in the world is an impossible task in my opinion.
@stadnikova_julia If you mean the ability to enter a rate manually, then I do not see the point. For this case, it is easier to use a basic calculator. Multiplying the rate by the amount of money
