Pros & Cons:
Converber is a good alternative for a free unit converter complete with a currency exchange category.

It is stated that the currency rates are updated daily in some of its features. If you note that the rates are not updated on first run after installation of the program, you might need to click on 'Help' and 'Check for Updates', or enable the option to check for updates.
Besides running in Windows, the program has a version built for the iPhone but it's not free.
