    Tiny quibbles:
    When making a send transaction, the current balance is not displayed at the same time.
    Number of confirmations of last transaction is not numerically shown (the green chompy pacman symbol is a nifty idea though)
    Changing from 2 decimal places to more accurate 4,6 and 8 digits in denominations settings results in a truncated 4th digit when phone is upright.
    Can NOT change back to default setting of 2 decimal places in denomination settings (stuck with truncated,or microdash or milli dash)
    (milli and micro dash settings appear ok)

    Reasons to be cheerful:
    Normal send/receive : Success
    InstantX send/receive : Success
    upgrade from previous version with wallet intact and menu update : Success
    transaction defaults to darkcoin exployer with correct address : success
    blockchain reset with details and balance kept intact : success

    Not checked:
    Pin and wallet backup with complete restore : untested

    Thanks for the feedback. The disconnect function will be removed. It was removed by the Bitcoin Wallet developers last year and I added it back to make some users happy. At this point, I don't think it's worth while to figure out how to get it working again.

    I will have to look into formatting that Sub-Ether points out.

    Samsung phone resolution is only 480 x 800 pixels so it may be alright on your higher def version.

    Thanks for all your hard work!

    So wait you are coming to the community to ask for them to help you do more testing before forcing an unfinished piece of code into the wild? I really like this concept and idea. You might fit in better if next time though you push the code first and then ask for help fixing. This way your can make your release days really fun.

    Since people have money tied up in these apps, we better be careful with updates. Luckily the Bitcoin Wallet developers have done much of the needed legwork as far as updating, but I still have to make some adjustments to their code!

    I have posted this new version of the App to Google Play.

    The google play listing still will have some old graphics and screen shots. Those will be updated soon.

    Upgrade to new version and short cut replaced : checked
    Display : all digit settings result in truncated 4th digit now apart from the 2 digit settings (on 480 by 840)

    Receiving coins: I sent in 4 small transactions... although the total balance is showing correctly, one of the incoming tx is missing in the list and the transactions have still not been confirmed in the phone after 40 minutes.
    I reset the blockchain and the entire balance was wiped out(previous version kept it?) thought I'd lost it but 10 minutes after, its come back and the missing 1 transaction of 4 has now appeared and all appear but all are still unconfirmed.

    Conclusion

    More glitchy than version 2, don't like how I sent a transaction and it was added to the balance but did not show up.
    After 1 hour, the transactions are still showing as unconfirmed!
    I would like the disconnect button brought back somehow, how are we to shut it down otherwise without going into the apps settings somewhere.

    Something about this version my phone does not get on with, I would prefer to roll back to previous version(r2), in fact I may delete this version!

    Added: finally confirmed after 1.5 hours, the phone appears hot, don't remember that before!

    These results are very interesting. The only difference between Release 2 and 3, is that the options menu does not contain a "Disconnect" button in version 3. No other code changes were made. I will repeated the same test and all four of them have started confirming.

    "Disconnect" was removed because it doesn't work reliably, in fact it was removed from Bitcoin Wallet over a year ago for the same reason. I go to the app switcher to close the app by swiping it off the screen. Any android device with a version higher than 4.0 has this feature. I do this to close many other apps that I use on my devices.

    The bug you are reporting is common among Bitcoin Wallet and all of its clones due to the underlying bitcoinj (Java Library). It has a weakness in that sometimes it misses transactions. After this a blockchain reset is required. Resetting the blockchain requires a lot of power, since it is verifying every block that comes through in a short amount of time and other users have reported that their device gets hot. This is a problem that I hope the bitcoinj developers will fix soon, it is currently beyond me.

    Thanks for the support. I won't be leaving, a new thread will be started for future update testing for the Android wallet.
