Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the widget not available on macOS 11 (Big Sur) anymore?
Apple decided to remove support to prior macOS 11 widgets entirely. The new widget system does not allow text fields anymore (simply buttons are possible), which makes it useless for this app. They are still available in versions prior to macOS version 11. Since Euler’s Unit Converter version 2.0 a menu bar widget has been added to compensate for this issue.

How often are the currencies updated?
Currencies are provided by Fixer and FloatRates, and updated once a day.

Why the name Euler?
Leonhard Euler (1707 – 1783) was a Swiss mathematician born in Basel, which is also the hometown of the developers.
