Currency Converter Application
Develop a mobile application that quickly converts the prices on tags between different currencies.
Axmor has developed a mobile application that allows travelers to use their mobile device cameras to quickly convert price tags from one currency to another. The mobile application is available on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
Selecting the Currency Pair
The mobile application enables users to choose currency pairs manually or to use GPS to automatically identify the country and its currency.
Capturing and Recognizing Price Tags
Users can point their mobile device cameras at a price tag or a receipt to capture a price. The mobile application recognizes the price thanks to the use of third-party text recognition components.
Immediately after pointing users cameras at the price tag, they can see the price right on the screen in the current rate of the currency they selected. Currency conversion is enabled through integration with an external currency rate service. Users may also manually input currency rates into the application.
Saving Conversion Results
The user can save the conversion results to compare prices in different stores.
Axmor integrated the mobile application with an external online service providing up-to-date currency rates. When an Internet connection is available, the application gathers real-time data on currency rates. If the mobile device is not connected to the Internet, the application will suggest the latest downloaded currency rates be used.
