There’s great news on Steemit today. A week ago @jm90mm launched bSteem for IOS and Android with the goal to ensure the best user experience on the Steem blockchain. When I first started in Steemit, this is something I was really looking for – a mobile app where I can access my Steemit account securely and easily since I am always on the go. In fact, according to statista.com, there are actually 4.93 Billion mobile users worldwide. Surely, this kind of app is really needed for the Steem Blockchain. Fortunately, @jm90mm designed and already released this amazing bSteem app for Steemit users. I immediately downloaded it so I can try to experience and learn what’s in it for us in using this app.

Here’s a walkthrough for the app.

First download the app through the following links:

IOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bsteem/id1354894604
Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bsteem.bsteemapp

Downloading the app was easy and fast. You then login using SteemConnect, including all authentications. bSteem will never ask you for your password/private keys.

My first impression, bSteem looks remarkable and very promising already. For busy users like yours truly, particularly those who don’t have the time to login on your laptop or desktop, this app is perfect for you since it allows you to create and post content, make a comment, upvote posts/comments, and even resteem on your mobile phone. You can do similar actions done on steemit.com or busy.org.

In creating a post, you can easily see post preview and save draft of your post. You can even customize the rewards as well to 50% SBD and 50% SP, 100% Steem Power, or Declined. A main advantage of the app is that it makes curation a lot easier as well.

Viewing other posts is also very easy since the app supports the sorting of posts by trending, hot, active, and newest. It is easy to press a tag to take you to its respective feed and to sort it. You can also save a tag and create a customized bSteem feed.

You can customize your feed with your favorite tag, post, or user’s profile, by clicking on the star icon. The saved content screen can be seen by clicking the star icon on the top right of the home screen.

Searching content and viewing images is also easy. If a post has an or multiple images, clicking on it will bring you to the image gallery where you can view the images only or share the image within Steemit or through your other social media apps. You can also share your post to other apps by merely clicking on the share button or copying the post URL through the post menu.

Another impressive feature from recent upgrade is you can customize bSteem as you like it. The app runs a user-friendly design for a richer user experience as you can choose between dark theme (for night viewing) or light theme and many other themes. If you are bored with the current color settings, you can choose from a list of preset themes or create your own theme by picking out and adjusting the different color settings. It makes using the app a more pleasant experience.

You can also enable NSFW posts, compact view, voting slider, and default vote percentage in the settings. In compact mode of posts, you can only see the title and preview body of the post.

You can also easily see your upvotes from the long list of voters on a post. There is an option to sort the list by Vote Value, Reputation, Username or Time in just one click.

80CC240F-59E4-44B6-B199-5D1FEA382592.png

Another interesting feature of the app is there is the personal messaging feature integrated with it. You can easily send messages to any user with one click of the “Send Message” on a user’s profile. This is very useful for better communication and interaction within the Steemit community without needing to go to other messaging apps like Discord, Viber, WhatsApp or the like.

Most impressive for this app is that unlike other apps, bSteem is absolutely FREE! Whenever you create a post on bSteem, no rewards are taken from its users or from the reward pool. It is said that bSteem is made with its users in mind and focuses on pushing technology advancement forward rather than seeking profit. With the goal of bSteem to be the best mobile app on Steem, all feedback and feature requests are welcome and the app is constantly upgraded with new exciting features. Some exciting future features are push notifications, video uploads, photo editor and a lot more!

With this kind of app, I can see Steemit being easily propelled into mass adoption. Because of the user-friendly interface and interesting features, it makes the navigation of Steemit easier to the newbie or even for the advanced Steemit user.

I am truly grateful that JM Myers @jm90mm personally contacted me regarding his release of the bSteem app. In case you’re wondering, he is also presently working on busy.org.

For any questions / inquiries and any other feature requests for the app you can easily email the developer at [email protected]

Since the app is relatively new, in case there are bugs or any issues with the app, you may submit here: https://github.com/bsteemapp/bsteem-issues

You can also join the bSteem discord here: https://discord.gg/TRhbd9Z

Go ahead and try bSteem yourself there’s nothing to lose.
Let’s also support @jm90mm for his great initiative for the steemit community we need more people like him that would really push steemit to another level.

Enjoy!

I did it!. The download was pretty simple, and apart from being a newbie and not having the password already typed and saved in my phone somewhere, the longest part of the process was typing in my password. It did take a while to login in though. Maybe I was being too impatient. But thank you so much for creating it @jm90mm and @janicehung for sharing it.

Wow! This is really interesting! I immediately downloaded the app, thanks to your advice. So far, it does look very promising indeed! I haven't posted anything yet but I will use this app for my next post. Thanks Ms. @janicehung! Kudos to the developer @jm90mm as well! Thank you for making Steemit more accessible and user-friendly!

·

Wow - this app sounds perfect!!
I'm gonna download it now.

Wow - this app sounds perfect!!
I'm gonna download it now.
Thanks for reviewing for all of us @janicehung!!
More and more people are on the go, and the developer saw the opportunity
to create a app for these people!! Way to go @jm90mm!!

Thank you for this review! I will be downloading this app today!

this is very helpful especially to those us, who are always travelling. thank you for this sensei @janicehung 😊
this is a huge help and awesome innovation @jm90mm
kudos to your sir! 😊
i'm going to resteem this so that other steemians may also benifit from this. 😊

Thanks for this!! Running bsteem now. Way better app!

This looks really promising. Esteem has several problems on IOS and Android. Currently i'm using both versions and on both platforms freezes occur regularly, which makes the user experience really bad. The Android version seems to less problems than its IOS pendant .

I am pretty unsure, if the posting key is logged on the system or on the server of bsteem, nothing mentioned here.
Keep up the work.

Just one thing, which we all need to consider now or later. We cannot develop several apps/front-ends to improve the user experience, while the real issue is the backend and its flows.

You use steemconnect to log in. Try so you can see.

In case you’re wondering, he is also presently working on busy.org.

I was going to assume b stands for busy.org because of the look and feel of the UI, downloaded few minutes into your post :)).

Dark theme for us with eye pressure issue is a plus and the 'send message' feature oh yes, finally some more engagement. Excited to play with it.

Resteemed @janicehung

·

B stands for “best”. Goal of bSteem is to be the best app on Steem 💪

·
·

Awesome.
Keep up the good work @jm90mm

This is great Janice. I had no idea anyone was working on something like this but like you, I have been waiting on a great mobile app. You are right , this will help us reach a critical mass of users that we need to sustain this thing.

Good effort dear..... Really impressive post and happy to hear about this....Thank you and Good bless u :)

Wow this is perfect I was trying to make a similar app myself and just couldn’t get the functionality I wanted but this has everything I’d imagined! The only way from here is up!!

I think this apps will be very popular. I liked the feature of sending a message directly to a person.

awesome new app new feautures incredible

Thanks for share great news @janicehung madam. I much appreciate your work. Wish you avery happy and bright future.

a great share. I will try it now. I agree with you. thanks for this nice info @janicehung

Simple and easy. I really like the apps #bsteem. Thank you for information @janicehung.

It's really awesome app. Go to download it now 👍🏻

These are great news, I used sometimes ESteem app or a browser for Steemit on my mobile. With ESteem I was never really satisfied, I will test the app for sure, thanks for the good news.
I will resteem your post @janicehung and if you would like, I repost it on my Steemit-promotion website and blog:

@busy.org great, great!!

·

Yes go ahead and try it. The best about this is that the developer is easy to reach lets also be patient for all the future updates and development. But at least we do have now better option for steemit 😊

·
·

I repost your post on https://steempress.org/....
Ok?

·
·
·

Thank you so much 😊

Great app

Really cool ,I just recently download the app and I’m still navigating to it ,it’s seems really cool and user friendly ,@janicehung thank you ,I will post my review and thank you for recommend it to me ..and @jm90mm keep up the good job ..we need more developer like him and Thank you ..

Wow, it's a really nice app!!! What I love about it is the messaging button, now I can say that Steemit is the Real Deal Social Media Site.. Thank you on this.

I just downloaded it ms @janicehung. Thanks for the wonderful review. You and @jm90mm are such a great asset to the steemit community. Can't wait to explore this app.

thanks for introducing this to me, I haven't heard of this app yet, I will have to try it out

Good, i loved this post, very good.
@calitoo

So when I use this app to make a post , what % of the rewards are deducted by the app ?

·

It doesn’t deduct anything. It’s Free. It will not get any percentage from the author.

·
·

Tks for the reply , so how are they supporting the development efforts (if you know )?

·
·
·

It’s self funded by me. I work for Busy.org and I use what I get from Busy to fund the servers and I use my own time to write and develop this app. Right now I have no monetization strategy. I want to deliver the best app possible on Steem. I’m hoping to monetize later through other means like maybe a marketplace section, where you can buy and sell using crypto like Steem and sbd, and we can take a small percent, but that’s in the future...

So yeah as of now I’m getting nothing out of this. And I’m using all my free time to deliver the best app possible.

·
·
·
·

Thanks @jm90mm

Appreciate you taking time to reply to the comment.

·
·
·
·
·

No problem let me know if you have any other questions / feedback / suggestions.

Goal of bSteem is to be the best app possible and we can’t do that without user feedback

·

·
·

0%. This app will never take any of your rewards.

·
·
·

Tks for reply.

BTW, I don't find anything wrong with reward sharing for a service , as long as it is obviously clear what the breakdown is going to be.

·
·
·
·

Yeah me either, I understand development of apps take time and resources.

But I don’t want to focus on monetary aspect, I want to focus on technological advancement for Steem apps

  ·  last year (edited)

Just gave the app a download on my Android Pixel 2XL. Had it crash once, but other than that it's been awesome! The UI is far superior to eSteem.

If you could possibly work on the UI a bit more this app would be perfect! Integrating notifications and better integrating the wallet/wallet features would be awesome! Also, adding support for saving drafts of posts if that's not already possible (sorry, haven't checked that out yet).

Great work!

·

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah you can save drafts, next to the “create post” button you can click on the save icon when you’re on the create post screen. You can view drafts by clicking on the top left icon at the create post screen as well.

I need to get a few android devices, I mainly test for iPhone’s :( so sorry if there’s any bugs but I’ll try to fix any Bugs ASAP

·
·

Do you have a Github setup for this project? If I come across any Android bugs I can report them there so you at least know about them.

It only crashed once when opening it right after the install. Other than that it's been fine so far.

·
·
·

Yup right here - https://github.com/bsteemapp/bsteem-issues

Thanks for the feedback!

·

The developer is working on that to fix all issues with androids lets all be patient but this is a good start. Now we have better option for a mobile app 😊

hey Janice, thanks for the post.
lot to learn.

Looks like it can do a lot more compare to some of the other apps.

Finally, a great app for steemit users! Thank you Ms. @janicehung for sharing to us about this! I downloaded it and started using it. Thank you also @jm90mm for developing this app. 😀

Great app

Thanks!.. That's really good information, i likes for you post!

great to get this information that "no reward will be taken from user". I download it since first release but didn't use it because I need full reward for my growing. thank you @jm90mm for your excellent work to develop this app

Fantastic!!! Thanks. I look froward to downloading it

This is awesome! I’ve been using the steemify app to keep track of my account while on the go but it’s not that great when it comes to acting and responding to those notifications! I’ll definagely be checking out Bsteem

I'm going to check this out I don't like just using chrome on my phone to access steemit

se ve muy buena esta app desafortunadamente mi dispositivo no es compatible con ella lastimosamente no la podre usar . gracias por el aporte

This app is broken. DOES NOT LET THE GREAT ME ACCOUNT POST DOES IT!? I DELETE!
BLEH! MUST FIX.
WHY do you do this to me? I wanted to be your friend and you wrong me? <E?

·

What’s wrong? Can you explain your issue ?

·
·

IT WOULDN'T LET ME POST ANYTHING AND SAID YOU CAN ONLY POST ONCE EVERY 5 MINUTES! LIES! DECEIT! DECEPTION! HULLABALOO!

·
·
·

lizlog.jpg

Your app has ruined this lizards day. :(

·
·
·
·

You should try logging out and logging back in, there’s usually some errors with Steem connect

·
·
·

But it's true that you can only post 1x every 5 mins, same as you can only comment 1x per 20 seconds, and upvote 1x per 3 secs.

gracias por compartir la informacion, la descargare para probarla. saludos.

Congratulations @janicehung!
Your post was mentioned in the Steemit Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Pending payout - Ranked 9 with $ 244,9

wow this is amazing, the app looks way better than the one I've been using in the past month (eSteem) - had some bugs and doesn't let me customise.
I've just found you on steemit and saw this post!

finally got an app for Steemit , Good work will definitely give a try . hoping lots of features will come in near future.

excellent publication. I loved <3

Wooow! There is an app for steemit?
That is incredible! :) I was waiting for this for quite some time now for the same reasons. Most of the time I don't have my laptop with me and it's hard to post things as often as I would like to.

Great walkthrough the app as well :) Makes things clear and easy :)

Steem connect might be down. Could you tell me your device and android version ?

This is just a first impression though. Good work!!!
