Mark your calendars, Apple fans, as October 4 (that’s a Tuesday) could be the day that Apple unveils the much-anticipated iPhone 5. According AllThingsD, their sources have reported that Apple is expecting to hold its next major media event on that day.

The post by AllThingsD continued that, “While Apple could certainly change its plans anytime, sources said that the Oct. 4 date has been selected by the company to showcase the iPhone 5. Sources added that the plan is now to make the new device available for purchase within a few weeks after the announcement.”

Rumors about the iPhone 5’s launch have been circulating for the longest time, with initial speculations that the handset will be released on September. However, since September is practically out the door, it’s safe to assume that that report is false. There are more talks and guesses about the iPhone 5; will it have a bigger screen? Will it support 4G? Is it really coming to Sprint? Obviously, no one has confirmed or denied any of these speculations, but we’re thinking that all will be revealed on October 4… maybe.

On a slightly different note, aside from the much-awaited phone, a lot people are also anticipating the keynote speech of Apple’s media event. Steve Jobs used to be the main presenter in their events, but with him stepping down, it would make sense that his successor, Tim Cook, would be the one taking the stage this year. So Will Cook deliver a compelling presentation? Will Steve Jobs even make an appearance at all? Again, all will be revealed.

If you can give me a currency app cooler than this, I’ll eat my smartphone.

We here at TechiXoft are proud to announce that we have a latest addition to our app family!  Our most recent project, Currency Banknotes, is very much alive and kicking in the Apple App Store, and it’s on sale too, in commemoration of Labor Day.

Currency Banknotes takes currency converter apps to the next level as it is the ONLY currency converter that lets you see images of banknotes worldwide. Users will not only benefit from having real time exchange rates for over 150 countries in the palm of their hand, but they’ll also be able to see pictures of banknotes from all over the world.

Currency Banknotes can convert currencies as quickly and easily as any other conversion app in the market. The kicker though, is the app’s very special feature that showcases banknote images together with the conversion rates. Truly a first of its kind, the Currency Banknotes app displays a total of nearly 1000 currency images, including rare and hard-to-find banknotes. Users can even zoom in and out of the images to see the paper bills in full detail.

Another distinct feature of Currency Banknotes is its “Top 10 Currencies” tab, in which users will be able to instantly calculate the exchange rates of the top 10 currencies of the world, all with one tap of a button. The app displays rates of the world’s 10 major currencies, saving time and effort, and allowing users to quickly go about their day.

TechiXoft aims to make Currency Banknotes the go-to currency converter in the App Store category. It’s useful, it’s eye-candy, and we believe that it’s an app that a lot of iPhone users will benefit from. After all, everyone needs a converter app in their phone.
