If you like mental calculation as much as I do, you may not be at ease with prices in foreign currency. I get lazy when I have to convert prices. Smartphones have changed my life here. It is now ridiculously easy and quick to convert money with an app.
Which one on the market is the best? I don’t know! I haven’t tried many apps for that. I found YAC! (Yet Another Converter) a few years ago and it does all I need so I did not look for anything else.

Why do I like YAC?

  • It can’t get more simple
  • It is a calculator too: no need to switch
  • Rates are updated automatically when I am connected to the Internet
  • I don’t need to be connected to the Internet to use the app
  • The recent tab makes it easy to do conversions with multiple currencies
