Abstract

This chapter, as well as the next, shows you how to use Android Studio in the context of building an app called Currencies. The purpose of Currencies is to provide a convenient way to convert between foreign currencies and a user’s home currency. The typical use-case is that a user is travelling abroad and needs to either exchange money or purchase something in a foreign currency. Currency exchange rates are always fluctuating and may even change from one minute to the next, so it’s important that the user have access to the most up-to-date data. The Currencies app fetches the latest exchange rates from a web service hosted by openexchangerates.org.
