Reviews have shown that some users are travelers. They want to have a desired currency and be able to easily find it. It is important that the source of the exchange rate was the one to which they are accustomed to. They want an application in their native language, with the ability to add their own currency. No advertising and minimum traffic.
Key aspects from the reviews is simplicity and speed of operation.
Application is focused on the main need for travelers – navigating in the sea of prices.
All unnecessary features are removed, such as a measurement converter (for engineers) and conversion to multiple currencies («for work»). To simplify the application we removed information about the exchange rates for buy/sell, because it is difficult to guarantee its authenticity. It may not be necessary at all, because travelers already have local currency.
Added the total amount, especially for scenarios such as «in the cafe».
