Why back this app?
Aside from what was mentioned above, Currency Banknotes truly is a first of its kind. There is no other currency converter app that lets users view images of what they're converting. In addition, while the app is officially filed under the Finance category of the App Store, we believe that it will fit in well under Travel, Utilities, or even Entertainment. We have a lot of feedback regarding the usefulness and convenience of Currency Banknotes, but at the same time, we've been told the image gallery of the app is also very entertaining. Turns out, people are really fond of viewing different currency images because they provide a glimpse of foreign cultures through their paper bills.
What's the Funding For: Funds generated from the app will be used to update and add more features to Currency Banknotes. Due to its current success, we're also planning to include some in-app purchases that enable users to download additional currency images. For instance, in the future, if users wish to download an image of the very first banknote of the United States, they can do so through the in-app purchases of Currency Banknotes. In-app prices will vary depending on the rarity of the banknote or currency image.
