Hi!

The reason for this is the bug I mentioned in my other post. The exchange rates for the GBP do not get loaded in the current version.

Version 1.2.1 will fix this.

I can't get the automatic updating of the 34 major currency exchange rates!
What am I missing?
Can you help me?

Hi!

What is your home currency? Automatic updating works only when this currency is in the list of 34 supported currencies.

BTW, the currently is a bug where automatic updates don't work for the British Pound GBP. The bug fix is on the way.

My home currency is EUR.
I only see whole numbers. For instance, 1,00000 EUR = 1,00000 USD or 1,00000 EUR = 156,00000 JPY.
I have net access and other converters like "Converter" work quite well.
Any idea?

Thanks,

Hi!

Wow! You found quite an ugly bug!

The problem is caused by having the iPhone set to use the comma as decimal separator. As a temporary workaround, you may chose to use the "United States" region format: Settings -> General -> International

I currently already have an update in Apple's review pipeline. I will not be able to submit a bug fix until that update is released. I expect that to happen about a week from now. It will then take another 2 weeks for the fix to this bug to become available.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello Pierre,

Now I'm using the "United States" region format and all is working OK.
Thank you!

I am not able to auto-update US to Canadian.

Is there a way to force the update?

Hi!

You may force an update by disabling and the re-enabling automatic updates.

The current source for exchange rates unfortunately is not the most reliable. We will soon update ACTCurrency to use a better source of data.

I have the the latest version of the software, and i am set to USD. My system has never updated in more than 2 weeks. I have verified the rate, as suggested in FAQ's on the houdah site. The rate that i am getting on the iphone is definitely off. Based on Google and on other rate sites, the rates have changed basically every day. On this app, the rate has never changed. I can see it is connecting to the internet. My connection is actually great. I have forced an update as well, as suggested. But, nothing ever updates. Or, at least the rate is consistently wrong. What needs to happen here?

Hi!

You should be able to tell if the rate was updated using the timestamp in the list. By default, it does not update more than once in 6 hours.

We are hard at work on a new version of ACTCurrency which will allow you to force updates as often as you like. We will also use a different source for the exchange rate data. The current source is not as reliable as I had hoped.

Hi!

That is really odd.

Please be patient. Work on the next version of ACTCurrency is about 90% done. This will be a great update.

Ok, thank you. I did just remove the app from my iPhone, restart and add it back. It does seem to be working now finally. It at least worked for the first update, which it had not originally.

ACT Currency update started to behave strangely since the last update. USD doesn't seem to update at all any more (update stamp = never), and some currencies show update stamp for tomorrow (!). Today is 17.8.2009 (0530 GMT/UTC), but ACT Currency says CNY is updated 18.8.2009 at 09:30. Some other currencies were last updated on 13.8.2009.

I have tried to re-install ACT Currency but it didn't solve this problem. Switching auto update off and on doesn't help either.

The firmware of my iPhone 3G is 3.0.1.

Hi!

In the current version, USD always shows an update date of "Never". This is despite the fact that its value is indeed updated. A bug fix has been submitted to Apple and should appear in iTunes within the next few days.

The update date comes from the source where we get the exchange rate from. Some currencies and sources are updated more frequently than others. That's why you see different dates.

I'll have to check why some currencies show future dates.
