Currency Converter: Android App

This is my first attempt in making an Android Application for release on the Google Play Store. The main aim of the app was to take my Java Knowledge and apply it to Android Development using the design principles laid out by the Android Development team, which includes the Holo designs and Tablet interfaces.
It is a relatively simple application which uses the exchange rate provided by Currency Layer to convert currencies. It is available for free at the Google Play Store.

The code for the project is also available on my GitHub page, https://github.com/richardtan/CurrencyConverter
