Astute Currency Analyzer 2.0 Released!

Dink Software is pleased to today announce the release of Astute Currency Analyzer 2.0.

Astute Currency Analyzer 2.0 replaces the existing Dink Software currency converter software, Astute Currency Converter. Just to be clear, Astute Currency Analyzer 2.0 is a new program replacing it, NOT an update for the now unsupported Astute Currency Converter.

Astute Currency Analyzer is a small application which makes currency conversion a breeze! With it's easy to use, minimalist GUI, Astute Currency Analyzer is simple to use and easy to grasp yet powerful and feature packed enough for professionals and everyday users.

Astute Currency Analyzer 2.0
- Features the top 35 currencies and their exchange rates
- Exchange rates are updated automatically daily
- View all exchange base rates against the currency of your choice
- Currency conversion is instantaneous; results displayed as you enter the amount
- Options to change the default currency to transfer money from, default currency transfer to transfer money to, currency to view exchange rates against, and how often the program will check for updated exchange rates

Thanks must be said to all those who helped beta test Astute Currency Analyzer 2.0.

Geography Trainer, New Project

The next release of Geography Trainer is under development currently. It will be a bug fix release (and hopefully not introduce too many new bugs ;p ). If you have suggestions or any comments, please post on the Forums. Geography Trainer 1.3 has been downloaded close to 1000 times now so keep spreading the word!

Another project is in the early stages of planning, while we may release another project some time into the future which has been shelved for a long time.

Dink Software is now hosted by Web Hosting Pad.

Redesigned site & www.dinksoftware.com

As you have surely noticed by now, the site has undergone a face lift to make it easier to access and use, a full explanation for the change is posted here on the forums. As well we have now acquired the domain name www.dinksoftware.com and have also moved webhost's to HostHelpers. Oxyhost was a great webhost, however they seem to have an unacceptable amount of down time. The old site address will redirect you to the new domain and webhost.

We've also got a short, still under development text RPG game by Chris C. which can be found in the downloads section.

Don't forget to check out the forums also, including an interesting concept point and click game by Jeremy Howell...
