Great updates, as always appreciated for their quality and clarity. Namaste :)

Brilliant!!! I already recommended some of my friends to use esteem, whom I asked to join steemit a couple weeks ago. I am a proud owner of a $30 smart phone so i don't dare using esteem yet. But eventually I will switch once I buy a decent phone I guess. Thank you for the constant effort and will spread the word. Cheers!!!!

Been using esteem for almost a month now, I find it very hand to check on replies and my wallet while I'm on the go.

@good-karma Thank you very much for your kind contribution. I received the SBD you sent for the translation. CHEERS!!!!!

It's almost one month that I'm using eSteem on iPhone and it changed my life as Steemit did, it's a great app indeed, almost perfect. I just would like to be notified with sounds that I can personalize.


Thank you @thenightflier! We are happy that you enjoy your experience with the app and Steem community. There are some improvements coming this week...stay tuned... About notifications: I think you can personalize your phone notification sounds that should change it for eSteem as well, because eSteem uses system defined notification sound by default.


exactly, I would like if eSteem does not use the defined notification sound, in order to distinguish the eSteem notifications from the other notifications or the sms.

Ooh like the sound of some of those features especially bookmark.

Much Appreciation and Respect.
Thanks @good-karma

Steem On,
The Dream is Live

Well done .. I guess the multiple account feature will help some guys a lot 👍

I like these new features in the app, it getting better

awesome! But some bug i wanna report to you! When using the esteem app on iphone6. It always cannot roll up or roll down. Its a trouble to reboot the app. Hope you can improve the app!;)

Good post as always! Sorry for low quality animations for this post. I will try my best to make it as good as possible! Anyways, upvoted and resteemed!


Looking forward to see improvements with next series 😉Good job! Thanks!

Thank you for the heads up on the features. I have tried it out and may have to check these now.

today i tried this app ,looks good ,need little bit time to understand all things . but i couldnt upload photo there, dont know why


To upload pictures you might need to mess with some app permisions. Try doing it manualy. If you don't know how and if you use an android phone. Please let me know. I'll try my best to help you.


yup ,its android phone , it would be very nice , if you could help me . :)


Ok! But first, which android version are you using?


Usually, you go to settings/applications/application manager. Find esteem, press on it and then you should see two buttons on top: uninstall and force stop. Well dont mind those. Below them there is information: storage, notifications and permissions. You press on permissions and allow everything.


Hey ,everything works now. Big thank you brother . Now I need know what kind of privileges are here 😇

eSteem is going to be one of the best Steemit App, with all these awesome features in it....

Wow. I don't even know there is a app for steem! Thanks for the tips

Been trying the app for a few days, some cools features, a bit slow... I should ask some questions later, there are a couple of things i don't understand...

I've been waiting for this. Amazing! It was about time we got these QoL improvements.

I wanted to ask where can we see details on the upvote system and will it stay for a long time or is it just temp for some days ?


I think its an amazing initiative towards boosting the content being posted. and an extreme help to the minows.
Maybe we should have more options like it to boost productivity.

I am getting "Broadcast error try again. First argument must be string, buffer, array...


Hi @damla, Could you check if you are using latest version of app also restart of app seemed to help for some people? Permanent fix is coming with new release...


Hi @good-karma. I have restarted app and now it is working for me. Thank you :)

Great the way, eSteem App is not working in my Iphone 4s with ios version 9.3.5. It just show
bellow display for long time...



Thanks for reporting @bibek! Will check before next release is out to make sure to include a fix 😉


thank for the reply...hope fix soon and able to use in my phone..appreciated your works...

Awesome post as alway @good-karma But how do you write on the right of the picture? it may sound childish but i'm new in this website:(

is it really the official app of steem, we need to use our password of steem there ?


If you are that scared you can just use the private posting key :)


Yes that is what i did


what is private posting key ? where I find it ? in steemit or in the app ?


Then you click show private key.

If you use the private posting key nothing can happened to your wallet or money. Posting key is really for that.. posting and upvoting :)

Out of interest, do many people use multiple accounts? Isn't it difficult to make more than one without getting flagged as spam? Speaking as someone who tried to make a second but it didn't get verified! Thanks for the update!


Once we make registration scalable I believe more people will have multiple accounts, just like on other social media sites, personal, business, community type of accounts. Spamming is different issue. As for usage, many people have 2 accounts one for themselves one for family members or perhaps one for their brand/business...

that #1#2 is easy to let us know. Nice post . thank you

Amazing....eSteem moving to number one in google app market soon.

thanks you very much @good-karma. it's a very good work. thaks

it's very good app for android mobile , i used it, thank you good-karma 👍

There's a desktop app?! [scurries to install it]

Thanks for all the work on these things! :D

Thanks for the update @good-karma, I was wondering what the secret menu was for and specifically the Add Account, now I know.

I'm working on documenting a handful of issues on iOS right now and will post soon, the app is pretty buggy at times unfortunately. Hopefully I can help get it into better shape.


Thank you! Looking forward to read report 😉

always inovating!! good one. I like the idea of esteem, thanks for sharing

Is there a way we can get notifications for certain users posts? We all have favorite authors that we want to know as soon as they post something.


We have that on todo list 😊 will consider implementing this soon as follow user or feed notifications...


That would be so awesome

awesome idea! i was hoping a semi steemit app would come out, i believe it wiil be a big success(:

This very unique post again menyispisrasi me to continue forward in this steemit community, and this post became my greatest motivation, once again terimaksih has become my motivator

good news I think to use esteem features

IT is very intresting.. that i have try. but it have lagged recently. i know perhap u will improve it.. thanks.

I just downloaded esteem onto my android phone and im posting this as a test. So far everything seems to be working ok, except my phone is old and i need a new phone.

The app is amazing. I am still enjoying the upvotes feature and its lovely to see more features being added. The eSteem app is constantly increasing posts which is really amazing to see ♡

Thanks for the headsup anď awesome work on the app, some things are new to me, adding multiple accounts is for sure an appreciated feature by some users.

This post is very useful for me because I always use mobile device to use steemit and esteem provides a good platform for me to use steemit more efficiency and I think this application is really user friendly and I could frequently use this application to post, upvote and comment.

WAW !!!

Thanks for the update @good-karma, I am very happy to use this app. I hope also for the latest update should be added #chating person. Thanks !!!

Thank you! Hope my translation helps. Multiple account function looks cool but I have only one xDD Keeping following :)

I really love your app and I'm just using it for about a week now. It's really great to have all the Steemit functionalities available on the go. As I'm often working on a laptop I can't wait for the desktop app to be released 😊 Thank you for developing all this @good-karma😃

Sending this from the eSteem app. Apart from some bugs that are being fixed speedlight fast, it's overall a legendary app that I hope to get more attention on Google Play and iOS, thank you @good-karma and the others.

Have to say that the app feels great 😊 just downloaded and i'm leaving a comment from the app! Thank you ❤

That's awesome.. I really enjoy the app.
@good-karma you might as well think of making g the font similar to the web interface. It'd be awesome

yesterday i was trying to search official app for steem, thank you so much @good-karma for help...

I Used eSTEEM for the first time yesterday, It looks great!

I have been using it for a while now also. Quite like it except that I'm not able to write new posts for some reason and also if I want to add picture I have to always first download it and attach it, can't do the links directly. But I'm sure those glitches will be taken care of. Keep up the good work!

This is great.. And i love to try..

Thanks @good-karma
I really enjoy your App. :)

Thanks for your answering.

Good jo @good-karma!!! Im really liked this application. Thanks

I'm brand new to steemit and I'm trying to find ways to make sure I don't burn myself out too quickly... I have a lot to share when it comes to photos and travel anecdotes, but I don't know the system well enough yet to keep us with everything going on. I'll give the app a try - it sounds like the right sort of thing for me to grow with. Thanks!

Newbie Karishma here! Omg, I just read your post. Can't wait to download the app on my mobile. However, I am an iPhone user. Is eSteem mobile app also available on iPhone or is it just available on Android phone only? If not, Do you have a timeline when it will be available on ios platform?
