Hide decimals feature

aticon57 atficon57 If anyone uses the hide decimals feature in Account Tracker, would you mind getting in touch. I would like to understand exactly what you use it for. Thanks!

    Hey Graham. I am using that feature because my primary currency is Hungarian Forint and we do not have any smaller units than the 1Forint unit.

    I have a very serious issue since I upgraded to iOS 9. Maybe a little example will help:
    • Previously, before iOS 9, I used to enter amounts in Hungarian Forints without decimals, 1234 Forints for example
    • Since I upgraded to iOS 9, that amount became 12,34 Forints
    • If I turn on the hide decimal feaure, it becomes 12 Forints

    So, basically, all the amounts I entered before iOS 9 are divided by 100 and the app is useless. Could you please direct me how to fix the issue?

      Hi, this is a fundamental change made by Apple (without warning). They have decided to reintroduce decimals for the HUF currency, I don’t know why, especially since they haven’t been used for a long time. Unfortunately it isn’t easy to fix. A simple workaround is to use another currency with no decimals. Examples are AFN, ALL, AMD, BIF, BYR, … etc. However that won’t work so well with exchange rates.

        I cahnged to JPY, but I switched back because of the exchange rates. Now everything is in HUF and I manually changed the amounts for all the transactions, however …

        • when I view things in ATB Viewer, every amount in HUF is 100 larger
        • when the Account Tracker (on iPhone) is calculating the exchange rate, it treats 123,00 as 12300, so the exchange rates are incorrect again, but the amounts are displayed correctly.

          That’s right – Apple have only made this fundamental change on iOS 9, not on other iOS versions, nor on OSX. My app has a built in assumption that there are no decimals used with the HUF currency, and that affects the exchange rate too. As I said, unfortunately it’s not an easy fix.
