The Czech National Bank’s first official app, called Czech Money, enables users to view Czech banknotes and coins and their protective elements in detail on iOS and Android devices. An extended version of the app including the exchange rates declared by the CNB and a calculator is available to users of Windows 8 tablets.
The app offers detailed pictures and descriptions of all valid versions of Czech banknotes and coins together with a backlight function and viewing under UV light. Touch screen control and recognition of changes in the speed, direction and spatial movement of the device (using an accelerometer) imitate the actual behaviour of the banknotes’ protective elements.
In addition, the app for Windows 8 tablets features an up-to-date exchange rate list showing the FX rates declared by the Czech National Bank every working day. It also includes a practical calculator.
The Czech Money app is available in Czech and English. It was developed for the Czech National Bank by Zentity.
