Hi everyone,
I have been working on supporting double entry accounting on GnuCash for
Android for some time now.

I would be grateful if you can beta test the new functionality and send me
your thoughts on my interpretation and implementation of double entry

The app is properly signed and should install cleanly over any installed
versions from the Play store. (see attachment)
*WARNING*: Make sure to back up your data before installing the app. If you
have critical data, do not install the beta version.*

For those who compile the GnuCash app themselves, there is a new branch on
GitHub <> named
 "feature/double_entry" from which the beta version has been built. You can
check it out and compile yourself.

*In order to activate double entry accounting, go to Settings ->
Transactions -> Activate Double Entry*

When creating a new transaction, the option to select a double account will
be given. The feature is off by default because I feel the majority of
users who install the app will not need it, and those who do can find it.

OFX exports have also been modified to include double entry account
information. Let me know how the import of the OFX to GnuCash for desktop
works for you.

There are also many other small features which have been tweaked, but the
focus is on double entry accounting for now.

Looking forward to your feedback. Thanks.
