How to convert currencies in Safari with Stacks 2.0

You’ve likely come across many situations when you open a web page to buy something, but the currency isn’t the local one. Stacks 2.0 has a really useful Safari extension for iOS 8 that converts the international currencies to the local one, within the web page.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Purchase and install Stacks if you don’t have it already from this link ($2.99).
  • Open a website like Amazon.com that has currency displayed.
