There are two tweaks to be done, that I've noticed:

BTC, instead of DASH:

Refering to 20USD as a "high amount":

Thanks for the great app!
This has been fixed and the update will be on Google Play soon, if it is not already.

I suppose raganius that as it takes BTC as a default probably 8,52 BTC is quite high for carrying..... ;)
I changed the warning to appear at about $1000 (USD), which is about 350 DASH.

No "disconnect" menu in this version, why? How can I turn off dash wallet?
If you need to stop it, there's the possibility with Android. Select at your device's menu:
"Settings" > "Applications" > "Application manager" > "DASH wallet" > "Force Stop"

HashEngineering, some more small bugs report.

Even though the app has been working great for me, my device gave me this feedback message:



I'm on a Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920I), Android Version 5.1.1, kernel 3.10.61-5499188. My Wallet App version is the 4.40.12c.

TBH, I do not notice any slowdown on my device's performance (but, indeed, its battery decharges very quickly - after about 17h stand by + normal usage it is already on 10% power and asking for a recharge).

The thing is, it's a "boring" message, and could "scare" some (more sensitive) users. It would be nice to not see this anymore.

I have also noticed, when helping a friend with his backup, that when the App (Portuguese language version) asks if we want to send a copy of the backup file by e-mail, the "Subject" field of the e-mail message says "Bitcoin", instead of DASH.

And, a suggestion: Is there some way to include a (clear) sign for the user that shows that the wallet is not yet fully in sync (still syncing the blocks)? Because when the user has got the app's blockchain late, at first there's a message "6 months late", "3 months late", etc. And it shows no balance. Great. But there are occasions when (I guess after "1 month late") it shows a (not updated) balance, and there's no clear sign of it still being updating. And some users are getting scared not to see some recent transactions.

Of course, it is possible to check the syncing status at the "Network Monitor" option, by comparing "Peers" with "Blocks". But most newbies do not know about it. Now, after I've seem a couple of similar cases, I have been explaining people about blocks and how to check the wallet's network monitor. But still, if possible, it would be very convenient to have a "nooby-friendly" sign at the app's dashboard...
... something like this, for example:


Thanks again for everything.

Forgive me, I'm not a user of this app but I think the no-copy-to-clipboard excuse (not a "safe function") is a bit lame.

If I put a public receiving address on a website, the website might get hacked.. If I send it in an email, the email might get hacked. I mean, where do we draw the line... surely at some point we just have to accept that each owner has to take some responsibility for their own security? It is, after all, a PUBLIC address.

At the very least, you could put a warning before it is copied or shared.

Seriously, now that we have an official iPhone app with support here, we need to create something similar for Android.

An official Dash wallet with easy to find support. This guy has too many other projects on the go and is not here regularly.

I totally agree
but then with Evo coming , is it worth changing all that now or better to wait !?

Just tried to install this wallet to my old android (2.3.6) Samsung-smartphone (GT-S5830) (to use this device specially and only as mobile wallet) , but Google-play says "device is not compatible".

Bitcoin and Litecoin wallets are installing on this device with no problem. :(

I have been "heavy using" this Android DASH wallet (almost like my main wallet, with many daily transactions) for quite some time, and I haven't got any issues whatsoever.

We need to understand what is going on with each new complaint, to try to be sure if it is really an app's software problem (because it can also be "cluelesness ?" from the part of the user... for instance)

But one thing is true, as stated by alex-ru, it is not compatible with "older" Android devices.

Another thing is true: it is a voluntary initiative, so I fell like we should refrain from "attacking" it.

I believe it is related to the Android version they are using.

Normally, i guess, the Play Store does not allow installing the wallet app in older devices, but it seems sometimes a user is able to install it even on incompatible environments.

I once "forced" the installation of the wallet in an old Galaxy Tab, and, indeed, it was not able to sync (as it is possible to check with the wallet's "Network Monitor").

We need to know if it is possible to have the app also compatible with those older devices (like the bitcoin and the litecoin wallets are, as reported by alex-ru).

The current version of Dash Wallet only is supported on Android 4.0 and above (as it is based on Bitcoin Wallet 4.+). While previous versions of Dash Wallet exist on my Github that would install on Android OS before version 4, those wallets (which are called Darkcoin) won't work with the current Dash Network (due to protocol changes).

The Litecoin Wallet for android is based on Bitcoin Wallet 3.30, which is compatible with pre-android 4.0 devices.

The current version of Bitcoin Wallet 4.44 should also require Android 4.0 and above, but previous versions can be downloaded from the developer's Github, which does support earlier versions of android deviced. Unlike with Dash, Bitcoin protocols do not change much between versions allowing much more compatibility between old and new software, especially with SPV clients.

Victims of our own success... how ironic.

Well, it's a good problem to have, and eventually we will have a stable protocol to build apps on top of, and the DAPI offers boundless opportunities that could render these wallets moot anyway.

Yes, I agree there should be an official Dash Android Wallet with support. You are right, I don't have enough time to help everyone.

I totally agree

The silly app isn't suppose to wait 30 minutes to send, but it should be sending transactions right away. If something like this happens then "Report issue" and I might be able to find the cause. Perhaps there were no connected nodes or something like that.

I know a lot of people don't like this missing feature. Many complained when it was taken out of Bitcoin Wallet.

I have a quick question. When you uninstall the app, does it remove the blockchain as well?

Everything is removed, including the blockchain (only 1 MB), log files, support files and the wallet file.

Be sure to back up your wallet. It only needs to be done once, regardless of your usage. If you uninstall with coins in your wallet, without the backup, then the DASH will be lost.

We have been working on adding InstantX back in (send only). Testing is showing successful results.

Other planned updates for the App include:
Changing to a different exchange to get price information.
Updating to the latest Bitcoin Wallet.

This is a test version. Install it on a new device (ideally). Test with small amounts of DASH.
https://github.com/HashEngineering/darkcoin-wallet/releases/tag/v4.40.12c.ix-b

If you test this, let me know about your results. We plan to publish to google on January 20. This is to coincide with the DASH Drink Vending Machine program.

You mean, it happens on the Play Store?

Have you checked if this problem happens when you try to install any other app from the play store, or if only with HE's Dash wallet?

If it's a play store issue, it might help if you clean its cache (Settings > Applications > Manage Applicatiosn > All > Google Play Store > Clear cache) and then, restart your phone. (you can also try "clear data" if "clear cache" did not solve it)

Another possibility: you might need to update your version of the Google Play Store, or even your phone's system (but it usually happens automatically when you connect to a wi-fi network).

Also, check (if you've got some kind of antivirus, malware blocker, any kind of blocker not "standard" to the Android system) if it is blocking the installation of new apps.

Or, maybe, if your device is running out of free space for the apk to be downloaded and installed.... (... but usually the system complains in such case)

If none of these are the cause to your problem, then I don't know :/
