Money converter getting current rate from web service
Actually useful, and illustrates some more advanced topics: textual scripts; obtaining data from the internet using etoy scripts; xml handling.
Nice use of retrieving information from the internet.
What I like about this project is that it shows how to capture and use, user keyboard input.
It also demonstrates how to detect changes in text input.
This is a good basic "Etoy Tool" "to program/create/discover with" and "to think with"
Can I remix this to add some instructions and explain how this could be used in a class or for kids projects (probably, by adding some challenges that require using the methods demonstrated here).
Sure, remix all you like :)
An interesting reminder of the availability of up to date information via internet.
