I love traveling, but converting prices while keeping track of my spending was never easy. I designed monetico for this week's challenge. Monetico is a simple-to-use currency converting app that allows the user to keep track and save any conversions they want. Finding Problem: Most currency apps function like calculators, with a one-time conversion purpose. They also include features that may not be necessary for all tourists that want a quick way to convert prices to their own country’s currency, such as rate charts or money transfer. Further, expense tracker apps can track spending and convert it to my country's currency, but these apps are generally meant for tracking daily expenses. Solution: Monetico includes 3 main functions: 1) convert currency, 2) smart search, and 3) track expenses. In the convert page, I wanted to design the conversion interface unlike most common currency converting interfaces. By simply clicking on the flag, users can change the country's currency. Recent activities would appear below, and users can edit, save, and/or delete these conversions. For the smart search function, I used a big dollar sign coin - the $ which symbolizes for search - making it easy and quick for users to search and add any favorite currencies of their choice. For the track expenses page, I wanted to design a simplified version of existing expense tracker apps, and focus mainly on the category of their expense and conversion.

Nice Idea and Problem definition, the splash screen is good. Nice colors by the way but try and make the functional screens simple and have a good looking UI, and also use intuitive Icons
The design is seriously nice! I love the colors 🥺
Best teacher eve!!
What a great idea!
Hi Anudeep, thank you for your feedback! I will keep in mind the font size, visual hierarchy, and the amount of info in the card design. Thanks for recommending "Design Pilot!" Their videos are great for learning UI fundamentals.
Great idea! I travel often and have problems with the existing exchange apps. Good job!
Hey Isabel, The text and information isn't legible and hence, not useable. Very small sizes of font have been used. You must bear in mind that it's going to be in the size of phone screen. This is where Visual hierarchy has to be established clearly between information, arrange them and present it to the user in an intuitive way. The cards designed seem to have way too much information. Also, carousel(3 dots in the bottom screens) are generally used for a different purpose. Here you might want to use something like a progress bar. I highly recommend using "dribbble" for inspirations so that you can get started on how mobile components have to look and feel like. Learn the rules perhaps initially, and then happily you can break them when necessary. FYR: "Design Pilot" on YouTube has crazy playlist on UI fundamentaIs, you must check that out. Its free and a gold mine of knowledge and can get you started on Visual hierarchy and other fundamentals
What a great idea! Great for people who travel often. Hope this app is built one day so that I don’t have to waste so much time tracking my expenses!
Vert clear and clever way of addressing the currency issue with a thoughtful design interface. Functional, direct and easy to understand for users!
Great design for keeping track of your traveling expenses.
