The ScreenCloud Currency app allows you to share the latest currency rates from around the world to your digital screens in a visual display. Share the latest Pound to Dollars rates, Euro to Chinese Yuan and more at the click of a button. This makes it easy to keep your office, lobby, store or school viewers up to date with the latest exchange rates through your digital screens. 

With the ScreenCloud Currency app you can:

  • Choose from over 100 different currencies
  • Select a base rate to compare
  • Show one or multiple currencies
