    Before I release the New Version of the Android App on Google Play and sort of "force" 1600 users to upgrade, I would like to get feedback on how it works and looks.

    https://github.com/HashEngineering/darkcoin-wallet/releases/tag/v4.18r3

    Let me know your feedback. If it's positive, then I will update Google Play.

    Changes include:
    Dash Rebranding
    InstantX support (sending only). Can't yet spend received InstantX transactions until 6 confirms.
    Donation feature will be removed.

    If you care to participate, let me know about these items:
    1. Icon and color scheme
    2. Can you send coins?
    3. Can you receive coins?
    4. Can you sweep a paper wallet?
    5. Can you send with InstantX?
    6. Can you see the value of your Dash in local currency?
    7. Can you upgrade from a previous version of Darkcoin Wallet.

    Receiving InstantX transactions may still be problematic. They can be received, but not spent until 6 confirms.

    Good Luck. Use the software at your own risk using a minimal amount of DASH. Backup your wallet/keys before installing this or install it on a device that doesn't have the Darkcoin Wallet for android.

    Once we get enough feedback and fix the bugs, we will update Google Play.

    Great work love it.

    Tried a send/receive and IX
    All work.

    When requesting Dash, the Copy function doesn't seem to work though however the share functions work.

    Also what does the Disconnect button do?

    Nice! A mobile wallet is a necessary feature for DASH, I hope you can eventually get a fully-functioning program on Android.

    It's already more or less fully functional.

    This wallet should be fairly functional. It is an upgrade to the current android wallet. Of course we want to make sure nothing broke during the upgrade.

    I tried the pre-release Dash Wallet Beta 4.0 Update 2 on the instantX setting, it worked fine (no mixing available yet).
    Anyone want to confirm this? :cool:

    A guy in my chat tested it out as well (as I have no android) and he said the same + smoother running than the 1st version

    I am surprised how little data usage it has used or requires as I'm on a low rate and its hunky dory.

    Sub-Ether thanks for the notification. I tried downloading this but it never showed up on phone. Google stated it was compatible with my Samsung. I guess I'll wait a day and try again.

    I downloaded directly from Hash Engineering's github releases via PC and copied the file via USB, but it shouldn't make any difference should it really.

    Google Play can be annoying! I also downloaded and copied, etc. and it seems to be working fine. I am in the process of sending coins to it to work with. See my post in the Testing thread regarding QR codes.

    Hashengineering - Dude! Really nice work! You need some serious trophy points for this.
    So far I have been able:
    1. Receive coins
    2. Change default exchange rate (not sure the upside down teardrop is the best icon for making it default)
    3. Limit to trusted IP, my masternode on Mainnet
    4. Emailed a payment request.
    5. Backed up wallet to SD card
    6. Sent payment via InstantX, less than 2 seconds before popup window displayed on desktop

    7. Sent payment to Desktop without InstantX and showed up in less than 2 seconds also. Desktop wallet is cold wallet for Masternode, so that may have something to do with awesome speed.

    Thanks for this feedback. On this basis, I will consider upgrading the android Wallet to the new version soon. I also need to update the icons.

    I don't have plans of adding mining. That is lots of work and I doubt anyone would donate to me for this feature!

    It is not easy to import keys to the PC from the android. The safer way is to transfer the coins using a regular transaction. Nevertheless, you can read this link: https://github.com/HashEngineering/darkcoin-wallet/blob/release-4/wallet/README.recover (beta version of the app)
    https://github.com/HashEngineering/darkcoin-wallet/blob/prod/wallet/README ( version 1.x)

    I agree with HashEngineering - it's highly doubtful that mobile wallet could ever compete with mining farms to mine some meaningful amount of Dash so it's basically a waste of time and other resources for both developer to implement this and users trying to mine on mobile.

    The googleplay installer still has "Darkcoin Wallet" on the splash page. :sad:

    I sent 1 DASH to the mobile using non-instantx. Something obviously went wrong, it took 4 seconds to show up. :D

    Yes, Google Play and the app still has out dated graphics and icons. These will be updated soon.

    The copy function works for me. It copies a Dash URI to the clipboard, which means that the text copied starts with "dash:"

    Disconnect is supposed to close the app and disable the background service.

    The "Important safety notes" are displaying full of formatting codes (<b>, </b>, etc.)

    Under the settings menu if I try to "Disconnect" it doesn't appear to do anything. Does the "Disconnect" function work?
