Hi Ngewi,

I finally got around to installing this. It looks great - the homescreen 
widgets are a real bonus.

A few (very) minor points:
- As somebody else noted on your blog, I had to uninstall the previous 
version first
- For 99% of people, the currency will only ever be their own currency. 
It would be good if you could hide the currency per account and by default.
- On the settings screen, the current setting of the default currency 
should be shown (so you don't have to click on Default Currency and look 
for the green dot)
- On the Export OFX pop-up (on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 running Android 3.2), 
the buttons get half chopped off the bottom of the box.
- On the same pop-up, the button labels are chopped off to "Canc" and 
- The program doesn't appear in the Android Task Manager or Running 
Programs list (the Android overlapping rectangles button)
- When entering a transaction, it would be nice to have a Done or Save 
button on the keyboard so you don't have to go up to the Save in the top 
right corner.
- When I imported the OFX file into GnuCash on my desktop, the expenses 
came out as credits and vice-versa. This is very possibly something that 
I've done wrong.
- The imported transactions had crazy dates - today's date become 
14-Dec-4163. Again, maybe my fault.
- This one is definitely nothing to do with your code, but an 
enhancement request to GnuCash: it would be nice if you could drag and 
drop an OFX file into GnuCash to get it imported. Then you can use 
GnuCash Mobile to email it to yourself and drag it from your mail client.

But, overall, an excellent job. Thanks very much for it - I'll be using 
it extensively.
