Abroad! is a suite of three applications: Currency Exchange, Unit
Conversion and World Clock, and a powerful Country Information
Database, designed to help you when you go "Abroad!".
Imagine you're travelling in Japan and you decide to have dinner
at a sushi restaurant. Currency Exchange will tell you that your
delicious "Tokujou Nigiri Set : 5,000 Yen" will set you back US$44,
or the equivalent in many other currencies, and if you order 1 "gou"
of sake Unit Conversion will tell you know what you're letting
yourself in for in US pints, Imperial pints, litres or whatever.
And when should you call your family back home to wish them
pleasant dreams?" No problem! World Clock will tell you the
time wherever they are in the world.
In addition, the Country Information Database provides you with
country specific information on over 260 countries and territories
world-wide, just a stylus-tap away. It includes each country's
location on the world map, the nation's capital city, official
and common languages, currency (name, code and rate to US dollar),
time (current time, time difference from home country, variation
from GMT, DST period) and local telephone information (country code,
area codes of major cities, international dialling prefix, ATT
access number). Naturally, you can search the information by keyword.
