UPDATE 24th September 2015: Great news! CurrencyFair have released an official app for your iOS and Android devices. It provides all the features you need to transfer money online and overseas on the go.
However, they don’t seem to have two-factor authentication enabled just yet within the app. If security is high priority, you can still use their responsive website on your smart phone.

Original CurrencyFair App Post
This section is outdated due to the release of the new iOS and Android App.
Let’s cut to the chase. There is no official CurrencyFair app for iPhone, iPad or Android. I found an unofficial App on the Amazon Android Marketplace, however I have no intention of ever trying it out. It makes me nervous. If it hasn’t been produced by CurrencyFair and it’s not an official CurrencyFair App, then I’m not interested.
The Good News
The Good news is that you don’t actually need a CurrencyFair App for your mobile device or tablet. The CurrencyFair website uses a ‘responsive’ design. This means that the website adjusts itself automatically for your screen or browser size. For example, have a look at the screenshots of CurrencyFair website from my iPhone. It looks like I have a CurrencyFair iPhone App!
You can see that instead of the menu being on the left of the screen, it is now a dropdown menu at the top. CurrencyFair’s responsive design works very well across different screen sizes and adjusts on the fly for a smooth transition. To watch this in action, you could log on to CurrencyFair on your laptop or desktop and resize your web browser. It’s like magic!
As you can now see there is no need for a CurrencyFair App to be produced by CurrencyFair. Their responsive themed website does the job perfectly and works well across all all browsers and smart devices.
To make this feel more like a Currency Fair App, why not add the website shortcut to your home screen on your iOS or Android.
What about CurrencyFair Security? Most web browsers these days, including the ones on your phone or tablet, offer to remember website credentials. I use CurrencyFair’s security features to secure my logins with Google Authenticator. This can also be done with SMS (text message) codes. Read my article on CurrencyFair Security to learn more.
