Per-subscription currency #18

Open
opened 12 months ago by TheLastProject · 7 comments

Hey,

Pretty nice app :)

I was just wondering... would it be possible to have per subscription currency? I am asking because I have subscriptions to both EU and US services, which means some are in € and some in $. While I could currency convert myself, it would be nice if that was more automatic so I could also have a better idea of the expected cost of all subscriptions combined as currency fluctuates.

Thank you for considering.

Hi! Thanks for your suggestion, I think it could indeed be very useful. Do you know an open API for currency conversions? How often / when could the conversion be calculated?

Would in the future maybe make an "advanced" field when creating new subscriptions where "foreign currency" could be integrated. I would like to leave the UI as clean as possible :-)

Definitely kept in mind.

There is an app on F-Droid that deals with currency conversions: Currency Converter (Currency exchange rates) - https://f-droid.org/packages/com.hykwok.CurrencyConverter

This app uses the data on http://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/exchange/eurofxref/html/index.en.html (which offers an XML file) and despite the app not having been updated for 7 years it still works so that source seems very stable. I would think it wouldn't need to be updated often, but I am not sure what would be best.

I was personally thinking of a simple dropdown like other fields have that just defaults to the selected currency in settings, but it is your app :)

We also use the ecb API in our office. It works for years now.

That API looks nice! Will also think about how I could implement that as privacy aware as possible. Currently the app doesn't use any network connections.
I could e.g. hardcode these exchange rates on every release and or make it opt in in the settings to query them once a day or something like that.
I'm not aware of how users react for new internet access permission necessity.

+1 for this request, with manual opt in/out for network access. Hardcoding the currencies would also work (missing DKK in my case :))

Hi, I would love if I could input different currencies for different sub.
I wouldn't even mind to input my own conversion rates. Right now, I have to put my original amount to title and make manual conversion to EUR and then fill the value. You can see how if you just add possibility to fill conversion rates manually and then set different currencies already improves my case so much.
