Kuranz is a currency converter that can automatically detect which country you are in, and set the appropriate currency. It also works when you are offline, so you can take it on your travels without paying for an expensive data plan.

Kuranz is a HTML5 web app, and can be run from any smartphone like iPhone or Android. Developed as a part of the beta program for the new Firefox OS, it has been thoroughly tested on the Geeksphone Keon.

Open web standards

I created Kuranz to prove that mobile apps could be built using only open web standards. With localStorage, app cache and geolocation APIs, the app works well offline and can access the GPS hardware in the phone. Building a UI that feels native on all platforms is a challenge, but keeping things simple and using basic touch events, CSS transforms and transitions can get you pretty far.

App store

Download it now from the App Store, or go to kuranz.com in your browser (can be bookmarked on your smartphone).
