We updated our currency list, lot of new currencies are now supported!

We have had a few requests for currencies to be added, and we have been doing that on the spot, without the need to update the application.  We just updated the list on our home page and we found that we currently support more than 100 currencies used in more than 150 countries.

We also support precious metals (Silver, Gold, Palladium and Platinum) and we are planning to add industrial metals and oil prices as well.

The full list of all currencies supported can be seen here.

Best regards from the iCurrency Plus team!

iCurrency Plus for Mac is the No. 1 app in the Finance category in Japan

We have got an excited day yesterday, but we are still seeing great good news.  iCurrency Plus is the must downloaded application in the Finance category in the recently released Mac App Store in Japan!

Why are we so excited?  Because this is our home country and we did not put any efforts in making the app multi language which is an extremely important requirement to be successful in the Japanese market.  But after this great news today, we have made a commitment: we will release an upgrade of iCurrency Plus with multi language support, Japanese included, within a month.  So Japanese users, please be patient and thanks a lot for your support so far!

The application can be downloaded via the new Apple Mac App Store, and can be found here.

We are present in the Mac App Store from day one!

Today it has been an excited day for us: Apple Mac App Store opened and we are proud to be among the first 1000 apps present on open day.  Not only that, we are the only application in the store that can be found under the keywords FX, currency, currencies, exchange, rates … no other currency information application is currently present!

We have got hundreds of downloads so far.  We are proud of it because we decided to put the OSX application at exactly the same price of the iPhone version, so it is available for almost every single pocket out there.  At the moment this post is being sent, we are the third most downloaded application in the Finance category.

So what is different?  What would make you download this version as well?  To start we have a bigger interface where more data is displayed just in the first screen (customizable)

We have also added a unique functionality: you can select one pair and get its value in the menu bar!  By doing this your favorite pair of currencies will be always available to your eyes.

As you can see in this sample, it shows right next to the icons of Dropbox, Logmein, Growl … etc.  The last functionality is related to notifications: Growl!  We integrated with Growl so you can still get notifications to your desktop of the must important changes that occurred in the pairs of your choice.  Needles to say, that equivalent to the iPhone app, all these notifications are customizable!

We are happy indeed that this moment has finally come, we hope you enjoy this version and continue to support us by rating us in the App Store and telling friends about the amazing features of the application.  Best regards from the iCurrency Plus team and Happy 2011 to you all!
