I'm not sure I need an entire app just for this... but equally there are those out there who do. Personally I just use xe.com Happy to be converted ( 😏 ) if people have great experiences and ways to persuade me how great an individual app is for this? :)

@bentossell currently I'm living / working in Norway and need to send NOK back to the UK as I'm saving for a wedding, the small hourly fluctuations make a difference with bigger amounts of money. However, you're absolutely right there are plenty of websites for this that do as good a job, if it works for you 👍🏽. I like being able to press a button and check it anywhere. As an iOS developer involved in more technical aspects of apps - I enjoyed the freedom of exploring the design and UI concepts involved - so for me this was fun and useful. Happy to send out download codes to product hunters that DM @oktiptop today.

@john_nye yeah - totally! I'm not sure I'm the right target audience for this which is absolutely fine :) Have you thought about using TransferWise to send money btw?

@bentossell yeah - and happily the Rates inter-market rate tracks quite closely to the TransferWise inter-market rate.

Cool. This feels like a great iOS Widget scenario. @john_nye - any plans for one?

@jfilcik yeah, you'd think it would work on the watch too. Won't commit to timelines in public though, but safe to say 1.0 prioritised shipping over full features.
