WebserviceX.Net which Financisto uses by default to download exchange rates is having difficulties lately, so in 1.6.4 I’ve integrated 2 more providers:
Flowzr – Thanks to Emmanuel Florent, based on Yahoo Finance API. Pick it up in the preferences, does not need any additional configuration.
Open Exchange Rates – offers free and paid service. To use it in Financisto you would need to register a free personal account and specify your App ID in the preferences.
This individual ID gives 1000 requests per month for no cost.
In the future, integration with Open Exchange Rates would allow users with Pro accounts to download historical rates as well.
1.6.4 also adds an option to download all current exchanges rates for all configured currencies at once. You can access it by using Menu button from Exchange Rates screen.
