Importing an OFX file is not supported. Don't bother trying. :)
No you shouldn't be able to get to the Settings screen (not yet). But you
should be able to view the list of accounts and list of transactions.
Except if you mean something else with the Account screen.

The currency currently derives from the phone locale, but I plan to make
that user-changeable in the future.
I also do not think you can change it in Android individually, you can only
change the whole system locale.
