    Currency Converter Pro Version 2 Released

    With a little hard work the BlackLight Mobile team has finally released version two of the fabled Currency Converter Pro. For those of you who have already bought the app, you will be pleased to know that the update includes five new features. One of the features has been suggested by our users and the others well... we thought you might like them.

    One of the most prominent feature added is the favourites section, from now on you will be able to save, select and delete your most used currencies so switching between them will be a lot easier.

    Another feature added, one suggested by our users is to be able to use the last recorded rate when no data connection is available. This will be especially useful when traveling to other country's and getting hit by those connection charges.

    For those of you who always want to see up to the minute rates we have added tile and tost notifications. The tile notifications allow you to see the latest rates without even entering the application, and the tost notifications notifies you whenever your selected currency goes below a selected limit.

    The final feature is to be able to view charts of your selected currency.

    To get a good insight into all the features check out our video walkthrough or why not just download it by selecting the link below.

    Mike Ormond Shines Light On Currency Converter

    Mike Ormond the Microsoft Windows Phone 7 representative and tech guru shines light on our Currency Converter Pro.

    "When Rehan Saeed contacted me to say he was building a currency converter application for Windows Phone 7 I’ll admit that initially I felt a little underwhelmed by the idea… until I saw his app that is…"

    Being at the very cutting edge of almost everything relating to Microsoft Windows Phone 7, Mike has been a valuable source for Windows Phone 7 developers.

    After having played about with our app, Mike found the time to create his own video walkthrough. Stating "Apart from looking great and having up-to-date rates for every currency under the sun , it has three other features" Mike had praiseworthy things to say.
