Want to take Lightning Network for a spin?
For Android: Download the Eclair Wallet for Android
Use your Android Eclair app. Go to your RIGHT by swiping.
Just go to the Lightning Network Explorer on your Android, and do the same, click on a circle/dot, and right below the QR Code you can COPY the Node URI
Then, instead of selecting "Scan Node URI", you would select "Paste Node URI", and the Eclair Android app will grab the Node URI from your clipboard for you, and then you proceed as usual, by entering your channel amount (150mBTC for me) and click "Open".
After that, you will need to WAIT for the channel to be opened, this happens on the blockchain. which means anywhere from 10-20 minutes for the channel to be open. At first it will say something like "WAIT_FOR_FUNDING_SIGNED" in yellow letters, and when the payment channel is finally open, it will say "NORMAL" in green letters.
Scroll to the bottom, you can copy the jumble of letters, or if you are on your Android, and have the Android Eclair app, (which now you do) you can just click where it says "OPEN WITH YOUR WALLET"
**IF you want to try it out on a Windows 10 Desktop PC:
For Windows PCs: Lightning Desktop App
For Linux: If you have Linux, I am going to go ahead and assume all you need is a link ;)
