Quick App: Currencies Currency Converter for iPhone

Quick App: Currencies Currency Converter for iPhone

Currencies is a simple yet gorgeous currency converter that lets you quickly and easily find out how much that sandwich at Heathrow airport will really cost you in good old US greenbacks. (Hint: not cheap!)

Developer Luc Vandal shared his favorite feature with us, and we have to admit it's ours as well:

there are no useless buttons. Just tap on a field, select currency or enter amount and everything gets updated on the fly. No Done button, no OK button, etc. Want to make sure you have the latest rates? Just shake to refresh and amounts are updated almost instantly.

He's right; it works as good as it looks. Which brings us to the UI design, done by Cocoai's Sebastiaan de With. His growing reputation is well deserved. Small but delightful little touches like the exposed electronics when rearranging the currency fields is especially artistic and appreciated (see above).

Who would have thought conversion apps would be leading the quality charge on the App Store?

Currencies is available via iTunes for $0.99

If you've tried it, let us know what you think. More screenshots after the break...

Steve Jobs Returning "End of June" Makes WWDC 2009 Jobsnote Unlikely?

Steve Jobs Returning "End of June" Makes WWDC 2009 Jobsnote Unlikely?

As covered in the Apple Q2 2009 conference call, Apple Chief Financial Officer, Peter Oppenheimer, repeated the company line that they "looked forward to [Steve Jobs'] return at the end of June".

Apple's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) -- where in 2008 Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone 3G to the world -- takes place this year June 8-12, which is decidedly before the end of June, and thus the end of Jobs' leave of absence.

Apple Wants You to Give Mom an iPod touch!

Apple Wants You to Give Mom an iPod touch!

Not content with having only sold 37 million iPhone OS-based devices (which includes the iPod touch), Apple has set about stalking and capturing a whole new class of prey: our moms.

Fiendishly clever, Apple. Who's mom wouldn't want all those pictures of the kids (and maybe grandkids), home movies, email and chat access, and multitouch gaming hardcore enough to put the curl back in her beehive.

Only one problem, Apple. Our moms may jailbreak!

(Joking, we still have to help them start "the internet" with that little compass or curled fox icon... Sigh...)

AT&T Posts Quarterly Earnings, Once Again Needs to Thank iPhone!

While we wait on Apple's quarterly results call scheduled for later today, it's worth noting that the iPhone's only US carrier just posted their own financials and things are still looking good for our favorite little pocket universe denter:

AT&T said 1.6 million Apple iPhone customers had activated services on the AT&T network during the quarter, more than 40 percent of which were new to the telephone operator.

AT&T Memo Leaks: Apple iPhone 3G vs Palm Pre Showdown is On!

Our good friend, Dieter, over at PreCentral.net has just got his hands on a leaked internal AT&T document that puts our beloved iPhone 3G into the ring up against the yet to be released Palm Pre. We are beginning to wonder what will happen first, Palm going out of business or the Pre actually being released... (Yes, we kid because we love...)

While some of the things that made the list are cold hard facts that every Palm fan will have to swallow, AT&T seems to be reaching on a few as well. Here are a some of the better ones:

Quickoffice Mobile Suite for iPhone First Impressions

Yesterday we posted that Quickoffice Mobile Suite was (finally!) available in the iTunes App Store. Well, our good friend Matt Miller from sibling site NokiaExperts went one step further and provided a great overview via his ZDNet column.

After a couple hours of usage, I have to say Quicksheet is quite good while Quickword needs a couple of immediate updates.

Why does Matt feel this way? Check out his complete post for details as well as a comprehensive image gallery and video.

Do You Ever Leave Positive iTunes Reviews For iPhone Apps?

We know our readers are far too savvy to ever fall victim to the "greater internet ****wad theory", but a couple posts today made us stop and think about App Store reviews, how the system works (or doesn't), and whether we ever take the time to leave positive reviews for developers of our favorite apps, or just tear off in a fury when we think we've been badly done by?
