Currency converter app for Euro

Currency rates can be confusing at the best of times.

Using a currency converter such as XE Currency is an excellent way to convert your currency to euro or sterling (and back again).

The XE app even works when the internet doesn't. Wifi isn't readily available off the beaten track in Ireland so this feature can come in very handy!

It's an essential for tourists traveling from outside the eurozone.
