The Distinguished Difference
Rate Alerts, a new feature added in March 2016, further distinguishes XE Currency from other currency apps. A user can specify a desired exchange rate and XE will monitor the markets in the background and automatically alert the user on their mobile device or smartwatch if their desired rate is reached.

XE Currency has been featured on a number of news outlets including the BBC, the LA Times, and CNN. It has also been highlighted on the iTunes App Store multiple times and is a top Travel and Local app on Google Play.

XE thanks all of its users and would love to hear their feedback and ideas to help make XE Currency even better.
