Thanks again for the quick reply Jack (and Dawid et al),

 From what I've seen people wouldn't often want to fully delete an 
account once it has been used a while, as that would get rid of a lot of 
things like transfers to other accounts, sending them out of balance.

Closing accounts is the safer option as it will retain the history.  Its 
a great idea to report the consequences of both actions though if that 
can be done.  Cascading the action would also be terrific.

Great work you are doing by the way.  (I didn't actually know the app 
was still being maintained).

I'm going to raise another query btw, regarding the version numbers, as 
I can't seem to get the highest one installed.

keep safe and have a good Christmas.
