Amsterdam, Netherlands – Indie developer Alexandra Mazurina today is pleased to announce Smart Coin: Currency Converter 2.0.4 for iOS, an update to her best-selling app that has reached the Top 50 in the Finance category in every major App Store globally. Displaying the results of financial calculations in 4 different currencies simultaneously, the app’s built-in calculator includes an input window that accommodates 20 keystrokes. Users can choose from a scrolling list of 175+ currencies, and exchange rates can be updated manually or automatically. In-app purchases allow the user to add currency fluctuations over time displayed as a graph; calculations based on past exchange rates; calculations based on hypothetical, user input exchange rates; and special PayPal, MasterCard, and Visa exchange rates.

Currency exchange apps are a competitive niche in the Finance category, and best-selling Smart Coin, first released in early 2012, has distinguished itself by reaching the Top 50 in all the following App Stores: U.S., UK, Germany, Japan, China, Russia, South Korea, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and Sweden. Apple has cited the app in its Finance – What’s Hot section in 100+ countries.

Smart Coin is the work of an independent developer, who has built an outstanding reputation for updates and customer service. The app’s success can be credited to five key characteristics:
* Simplicity – with up to four currencies displayed in horizontal bars above, and a standard calculator keyboard below, operation is quick and intuitive.
* Flexibility – where most similar apps calculate the exchange rate between two selected currencies, Smart Coin offers up to four selected currencies simultaneously.
* Authority – at startup, the scrolling list of 175+ currencies is updated against any currency selected as a reference – users can alter the reference on the fly, automatically updating the currency list.
* Capability – with no optional additions, Smart Coin offers: currency text search; favorite currencies; Country/3-letter Currency Code/National Flag tabs; choice of 18 free rate services, like Yahoo Finance, the European Central Bank, and the Bank of England; 17 built-in language localizations; offline or online operation; a four-function calculator with auto-calculate mode to convert formulas; and easy copy/paste and expand/contract gestures.
* Expandability – one of its greatest strengths is the absence of extraneous information, yet the app offers optional, in-app purchases, which expand its feature set beyond daily conversions and into arbitrage, currency speculation, and trans-national credit card commerce.

“After many updates and revisions, Smart Coin 2.0.4 is a highly refined app that works flawlessly,” commented indie developer Alexandra Mazurina. “Start with the basic app that contains all that most users will ever need.”
