The Good: KFH just released a Blackberry application that covers all KFH news and promotions and is also a currency converter. The Bad: It doesn’t cover any real banking tasks such as account balance, bill payments or installment status.

If you want it, can click HERE, add your mobile number and they will send a link for you to download the application

    I would hate to get more advertising messages but I think the currency converter thing should be great since I can’t find one on my BB even though I had it in my two previous nokia phones! Any ideas why that is?

    Do you need internet for the currency converter to work cuz most of the time you need that is when you’re abroad and using the data services there can be costly?

    1001Nights, yes it needs Internet to get the latest currency updates.

    Thanks Mishary. Can you suggest any application for BB that does currency conversion without internet? The ones where you can just input the rate once and then use it?

    I prefer the Bank of America application which tells you all your banking details! I wish banks were as advanced as BoA with their online services and presence!

    1001Nights, I think there isnt any program that do conversion without internet connection, its whats the point of it if its not connected to the net and get you the latest exchange rate.

    Mishary, when I travel for a week or so I used to input the exchange rate on my Nokia phone. When I’m abroad and want to buy things I can convert right there on the spot because it’s unlikely that the rate will change significantly within a week. If I had to use the internet every time I bought something it will cost me. It’s unnecessary since the rate will not change in a big way. It was an excellent program to have on my Nokia and it came without me installing it. It also had other conversions like weight and I think weather and even distance if my memory is correct. IFor the exchange rate, I just had to put in the rate once and then I can change it if I travel many months later. But the point is it made shopping experience abroad much better than using the calculator each time on my phone.

    1001Nights, then the only way is to remove the internet setting before you leave Kuwait then it wont download anything 🙂
