I could really use some help!

Hey guys, I developed an app a few months ago and seeing some good reponse. However the app was created in English (American) using American dollars. Its a business tool that the user inputs data such as products and services and calculates rather values such as sum, total, and etc.

 

The problem is that it works great for U.S. Consumers however if the user buys this app in another country with different currency, the app becomes useless. Is there a way for me to have the app automatically read the currency and convert to the relative currency so that it can work using the user's currency figures?

Yes you can. You will need to subscribe to one of the various currency providers on the web.

You can find a few with a Google search. It all depends on how much you want to spend and the interface API that you can write to.
