What people are saying about the print version of this app:
"Pariser's updated, expanded third edition of his Barbados book is compact in size, pertinent in fact and loaded with offbeat suggestions for tours and activities. The book includes useful tips and charts, dining options from gourmet to vegetarian, colorful details on Cropover and other festivals, and loads of Web sites and e-mail addresses. The author dispenses blunt, practical advice which is a welcome change from some other guidebooks.... This book is a welcome addition to any travel library." — Gay Nagle Myers, Travel Weekly

Even if you don't know the difference between a LEK and a LARI, a KIP from a KYAT, Travel FX knows the currencies in use in over 250 countries, and can tell you the real value of that money compared to your home currency.
Not just a simple exchange calculator, Travel FX keeps track of the hidden costs of foreign exchange such as the service charges ATM networks, credit card card companies, and currency dealers charge you to perform the exchange transactions. It even maintains notebooks for you to record all your purchases and expenses.
No charge or hidden fees for currency market data.
Tracks over 160 currencies used in over 250 countries. You don't even need to know the local currency, just select the country you are traveling in and the application sets itself up automatically to use the right formulas and currency.
Maintains notebooks which let you record all of your expenses in any country or currency with added entries giving the cost in your home currency. Perfect for both pleasure travelers and business travelers on expense accounts.
The notebooks can be emailed in PDF format.
Not only calculates costs using current market rates, but also calculates in any transaction fees that your dealer, card or network has charged you to give you real costs. You might find that a particular credit card will save you over 5% if you use it to pay your hotel bill instead of using cash.
Converts from any currency to another.
Will track the service charges for two credit cards, two ATM networks and over 500 local banks, local currency traders or local Bureaus de Change.
Will calculate service charges you don't already know by comparing the amount you traded against the amount you received.
