A currency converter on your Android device can come in handy in many situations, but which one should you choose? Well, you can't go wrong with nanoConverter. This app has the virtue of doing one thing, but doing it exceptionally well. Like any currency converter worth its salt, nanoConverter supports multiple currencies, and you can choose currency pairs on-the-fly. Using the app couldn't be easier: select the currency pair, enter the desired amount in the Amount field, and behold the result in the Results field.

nanoConverter supports multiple exchange rate sources, including the Central European Bank and Forex. The app doesn't require an Internet connection to work, a boon for those traveling abroad. Obviously, nanoConverter must be connected to the Internet in order to update exchange rates. By default, nanoConverter is set to update exchange rates manually, but you can configure the app to update the rates upon launch or in the background. nanoConverter is released under an open source license, and you can read more about the app and peek at its source code on the project's website.
