eSteem - Feature Set #13 (Voting slider, PIN code)

in esteem-features •  last year


In this series of posts, We will present current feature set that eSteem is offering. And details and usage of presented features. Each post will include gif animation and its explanation to guide reader through the process of using it. Note that these features are being improved constantly, you might notice some changes/addition in future releases.

What's eSteem

For those who find eSteem related post first time and don't know what eSteem is: It is mobile and desktop application for Steem! eSteem is offering some of the unique features (Bookmarking, Post Drafts, Image upload/capture, Personal Gallery, Notifications, many more) for mobile users! Evolution of eSteem desktop app is under development.

eSteem supports multi-currency where you can see post rewards in any currency you like (BTC, USD, EUR, RUB, GBP, JPY, KRW, INR, CNY etc.), multi-language (44+) where you can use app in any language you are familiar with, multi-account where you can add more than one account and easily change between accounts, multi-chain where you can use both Steem and Golos chains, multi-notifications where you can get notification for your multiple accounts for following activities Vote, Follow, Unfollow, Mention, Comment, Reblog, Transfers, Scheduled post publish, etc!

  • Animation #1 - In this animation you can see how to control your voting weight/percent with 2 different ways. One by tap and hold, other one is by changing it from Settings menu. Changing voting weight doesn't have any limitation in app, but note that you might receive messages from blockchain if your voting power is low or percentage has not correct values.

  • Animation #2 - Having PIN code gives your app and funds extra security. If you lost your phone or someone else has physical access to your device, you can easily have extra secure layer which will ask PIN code everytime app is active. Animation shows example how to set and use it in action. After 4 attempts of incorrect pincode your account will be logged out.

Thank you to my brother @pjo for helping out with recording animations!

Its the only app for steemit. It's very handy and easy to use. Today downloaded it and its awesome. :)

The app has so many features that we cannot get on steemit site. Like it give very much accurate values (upto 10 decimal) of all numerical data and that's cool. It also shows the voting power and provides notifications on out about updates in steemit and that's very much helpful.

It provides voting slider also for new users, that's a great feature.

The app is being updated frequently and regularly with new features added, that's amazing!

These new features are super awesome.

Thanks @good-karma :)

@good-karma welldone. A lot of people do not know this especially minnows whose SP is below 500 in steemit who are not privileged to have voting slide.

eSteem is the only way out for now for all the minnows out there crying over inability to adjust their voting strength like others thus are almost always forced to vote at 100% or abstain from voting.

This is the main cause of the decline in voting observed in the whole community because people in this class are more in number.

If only they can read this post and gravitate towards eSteem to correct this anomaly; that will restore upvoting activity back to steemit.

@good-karma, I want to use this opportunity to implore you to hasten the windows version as alot of people feel more comfortable to post from computer than phone.

Thanks once again.


Thank you! Doing what I can to bring desktop and webapp as soon as possible, even if it means to release ready parts of the app partially...


Great work @good-karma :)


It will be greatly appreciated. Welldone for the good job.


Yes, everything in steem is all a win win philosophy


@good-karma is it possible to apply the voting weight adjust on desktop?

Do you tell me about the logic?

I just trying make the tools for voting adjusting but steemit's javascript is not working with localStorage logic.



Wow, that will be cool. :)
Thanks for your hardwork bro. Your apps are very much helpful to all the steemians and are very much appreciated.

@good-karma can you add material UI to your eSteem android app? We'll love that.


Ohh, waiting for this! I currently only use Steem on desktop so I'll certainly try it out if you bring a browser version online. Also, is that a drafts feature for posts I see in the gif up there? If so it'll be awesome if I can save post drafts for later! You can save one post now, but sometimes I like to log ideas, and that would be super helpful. ^_^




Thank a lot,I get knowledge

Sometime when i vote i forget to change my voting weight, but now with this tap and hold it become easier.
I cant wait to see more updates in the future.
thank you


Sounds like that will make a number of lives easier...great suggestion, sir.


Thanks for this

Another great overview helping the newbies fully understand how steem really works. Man I love the way you guys put details into explaining the ins and outs of this platform. Hands down this has been an awesome experience and I'm grateful to be a part of it. Keep on steemit

I do believe eSteem has great features, but it's still very buggy on my Galaxy S7. Every time I click on a notification on eSteem and then try to navigate in the app, it simply doesn't respond. There is still a lot of bugfixing to be made. At least for the Galaxy S7.


Very true! but for what it is and how fast it has been developed i can't complain! :D

I just started on Steemit and I was wondering if we had something like this:)....We need some way to access the content on an app...Compete head to head with Instagram.

Hello @good-karma. You are doing great work and I think you deserve to know it. You maybe have heard it before but I believe you need to hear it again. Good work should be more valued.

Every time I use eSteem it gets beter and beter and I believe are giving much of your time to improve the app.

Your name is well chosen: good karma : you encourage new users, your work benefits the community, ...

Thank you for being who you are.
Keep shining the way you shine.
Bright blessings.

Oh! It is very nice! Thank you for your effort again and again! You are making a very great app for all of us. The use experience it keep increase version after version! It would like to be the best steemit platform in the furture I think! Also support you!


The Dev Team is doing their best to make America great again #maga!

Thanks for the post, been using app now for about a week now on ios, it's really great much better than steemit from browser. I have had a few regular freezes and slight glitches here and there.


iOS v1.4.6 is coming soon which should improve performance and solves few bugs. We are testing it right now before release... Android 1.4.6 is already out and available, work on 1.4.7 has started :)


That's greats news, thanks again! love the app!!


Sometimes I noticed the freeze on my android 7.0 too. I usually close and restart again. I hope you equally consider improving on that in the next release.

Woop woop.. Amazing new features as always :).
The app is expanding so fast that it amazes me all the time.
Thanks foe the effort and support yoy are putting in the community man it really gives an enormous boost in everything :)
Cheers and all the best from me🍻


Forgive me, but when I saw 'thanks foe', I thought you were actually calling the dev an enemy. I also thought that perhaps I'm getting old and don't know the new 'lingo'. I sincerely fail at life.

Good day, sir.


I always feel very happy after seeing your post, feel motivated to make a post like you, there is something new, help me to be able to learn more in this steemit, I always follow the posts you make .. many already the interest I know

Maybe you don’t have time, maybe you didn’t mentioned my message, maybe my message was not interesting enough, maybe for an other reason you didn’t react to my message.

My apologies if I bother(ed) you … I won’t do it again. I sent you a message of support believing it could make a difference and bring some positivity.

The absence of answer hurts … It’s not the first time and it will not be the last time it happen to me. There are worse thing in life and I want to relativize … Doing my best to survive is one of the most important thing for me and I won’t let put me down.

I want to remain positive and won’t say anything bad … Why ? Because negativity and indifference brings misery in our world. There is enough misery and I am trying not to take part of it.

I still wish you the best even if you ignore me.

Blessings are still from Europe.

Thank you @ good-karma, i have been using esteem app since i joined with Steemit maret 2017, initially I always get vote automatically from @ good-karma everytime my post using esteem application. But now it's not there anymore, I do not know why.

Waiting for eSteem Desktop version. Thank you for your good work @good-karma. I love to browse and write from my phone.


Me too! That will help me a lot to post more and to post better. I was using my phone and/or iPad exclusively but boy does that slow me down. Now I am logged into my Windows Desktop with two monitors and a nice mechanical keyboard and it is like night and day. I can't wait to post what I am working on. In the time it took me to write one decent post I already have about ten waiting to be released at the right time and invervals. Release the Kraken!! 🤓

@good-karma it is really amazing article.
Hope you like my new post - A complete Case Study of For New Users.
Post Link:

@good-karma I'm using esteem app for Android and ehen I'm reading a post i can't navigate back to home in the new version. Could it be a bug? But overall i like the app

Any chance to improve the speed of the app on IOS version?

I find mine is very slow (ipod) although all my other apps run at a good speed. Otherwise, love the updates and the app.


iOS release of 1.4.6 is coming tomorrow. Announcement post will follow soon, once it becomes available, would you mind trying it out to see where else performance can be improved...?! In this upcoming version 1.4.6 we have fixed number of issues that were slowing down app, you should feel some improvements, but any feedback is appreciated... Thanks!


Yeah - that's great to hear. I use the app all the time when not next to my computer - It's just the speed that was causing me to not use it as much. I'll let ya know :)


Sir good karma I want to ask

How do I see the post key and active key in the Esteem app?
In App eSteem I can log in, but I can not open it on the website because the password is incorect.
I am very confused. In the eSteem app when I follow, commenting, replies and upvote errors happen ...

Please help sir
thank you

Amazing i love it, dont forget view my post , now i upvote and follow you, follow me back thanks bady

i wait for esteem dekstop, thanks @good-karma for your contribution in this community.
and thanks for all developer.

wow. really?


yes sure


Ok. Tell us why he should follow you. Do you have great content? Do you have answers to questions he might have? Fill him in.


that not jus for him


Oh. So you want to get on HIS post, and ask everyone to follow you without writing your own post? Hmmmmm. This is very bad manners. Others might consider flagging you if you continue.


No, do not get worse

nice. I am a beginner. Need to learn a lot from

I'm thoroughly thrilled to hear about the slider! I really missed that XD

I've found my app was glitching a bit when switching to posts from notifications and would sometimes completely freeze when I had the pin code on, don't know if it's just me though. I'll try it again with update and see how it rolls.

Thanks :D

great post. very helpful thanks

Hey guys please follow me back

Nice post

U or good :* plz support me upvote back me :)

Great work karma that help me alot thanks :)

Amazing work! Thank you.

I was checking your app @good-karma is there a way to check for you up-voters?

we ve been chating a bit a steemfest Amsterdam not sure if you remember me. cheers mate


Hey @skapaneas, Yes there is. You see number of votes, just tap on it to open window where it shows who voted, their reputation, voting percent, etc... Let me know if it works! :)
Hope to see you at SF2 too, if you are coming...


Trying my best to be there. Keep up the good work man.

That's greats news, thanks again! love the app!!

upvote me ! :)

I just started and I didn't know we had these options because I thought its only for Windows. But I hate my laptop and I love my phone so I will get this now 💖 thanks this seems so amazing

That's good features that we can control voting power on individual post as i didn't know it and i will use that slide for vote because i generally useing that setting from setting option but now i will use from post so its easy that we can change voting power on different post by giving at different voting power and its more essy

Trending is Useful
The trending page is now more useful than ever. Now that payouts are daily, the trending page shows the highest valued posts. It will probably be made the default page soon.

Payout Time Sort Order
We added a new payout time sort order that allows you to see which posts are about to be paid out. This should give everyone one last chance to up/down vote a post before payouts become irreversible.

New Downvote Button
Downvote button has been replaced with a flag in the top right corner of each post. This makes it clear that downvotes should be used to flag content for abuse more than to just push someone else down.

Payout Status
You can now inspect a posts payout status by clicking on the pending payout amount. It will tell you when a post is scheduled to payout and how much it has been paid in the past.

I'm happily reading this on eSteem. I prefer it to the steemit website.

Can you post on how to read/review comments and replies on eSTeem?


It's a little tricky took me a minute to find it myself- you have to navigate to the left tray where you see your profile pic- and tap the little white arrow- then you'll see a whole new set of options that pertain to you and your account- hope that helps!


Once you're there you can tap on your username and get to your "blog" page like on desktop 👍🏻


Thanks, I had never clicked on my profile before. That's the trick I was missing.


Yep just found it literally last night after a week of using the app 👍🏻


I suppose you mean reading/reviewing your own comments and replies? You can access your comments and replies from your profile page, open side menu and click on your profile picture to open your profile... check out other feature set posts to learn more about other features...


Thanks, I had never clicked on my profile before. That's the trick I was missing.

I don't see it on mine. when are new feature available on ios?

Voting slider is great, good job. Keep it going!

es una genialidad!! acabo de $$$ hare los mismo con quien comente de debajo y me siga $$

Great post and thanks for share

Excelente informacion, gracias por compartir.

Thanks for the support. Nice Apps & Android app has to upgraded little bit as it works slow sometimes

Thank you for the post :)
Didn't know about this app but thanks to you I will be using it :)

Thank you very much for the knowledge and information provided. However I have 3 obstacles that I experienced while running the Esteem program.

  1. when i have mengaplod 4 pictures, and want to forward to the next picture I found the obstacle, pas aplodnya already seen 100% screen, the picture failed diaplod.dan new can diaplod again if we save the file first, wait a while, and program esteemnya Opened again, can only diaplod.dan this thing I do not find in google chrome.

  2. I before giving comments usually read the post first, then I also read each post comments other people first, because I also do not want, either ask or give suggestions and comments the same thing done by other steemit friends. The problem is I hard to see comments friends steemit first and must see in google chrome program first, then I can comment.

  3. This is not included in the esteem program. Why the value of an existing vote could drop to 50% until the seventh day.

I apologize for the inconvenience that I have to say. I'm just trying to say what I feel.

Thanks for your continued work making the platform better. I can't wait to be able to use this on my lap top.

Wow~~ Thank you for your nice information.

Great app so far. Improvements from daily user:

  • notifications for New feed
  • when I click on comment notifications I sometimes can't open the comment.
  • fees option dissappeared. I only can use trending, popular in search mode.

Interesting concept. Would like to see the changes to graphical user interface when it comes out of beta.

Thanks for the new functionality!

Nice post, I enjoy reading it. Check out my post on some Fun Facts It's a new series i'm starting and want to know your opinion. Have a nice day!

thanx from this newbie :)

I got this for my iphone for the notifications. So far, I've found using it beyond just getting notifications. It's been great and it is getting better! Thank you!

Thanks for the post

fantastic. downloading this app.

Thanks, I'm trying the app and it works quite well. Is it possible to receive a notification when there is a payment to redeem?
I received one, from a payment from a user but not when I had credits to redeem

Thank you.

Esteem is the greatest, thank you so much for all your hard work.

As always very informative. Thank you for sharing my friend!

Thank the post

Hi, Great post, thanks. I have been using the app basically since I started and I love it. it has a few little bugs etc. but nothing you cant work around and it really does make it a lot more convenient being able to post from your phone...

Very nice, I am going to use that, got a lot of good features!

I love this app thank for this.

Very good post :)

Thanks now I can also post rhe content when I am somewhere outside.This app is very useful

Just installed it! Thank you developers!

through this app we can do more and more , thanks for sharing this information
you are really making hardwork and may god bless you because i think its better to post one's rather than several posts but that one post should be for all community and you are doing that work , really appreciable , thanks for this great work

Love the new features! Thanks for your hard work, upvoted!

That's greats news, thanks again! love the app friend!! @good-karma

I learn a bit more about steemit every day. I haven't been more excited about a new opportunity for a long time.

Good master

Being using it for a while, and as i stated before, overall the app is a bit slow, specially loading the comments and the wallet page...

It is very slow and often crashes! I'm on IOS

I have been using since the day I joined steemit, 20th June this year. It is really awesome to steem on the go. It is really a Good Karma ( Good Job), literally!

oh thanks good karma , first time to know about the esteem , i didnt know steemit has an application ! Its kinda hard sitting all the day using the laptop,, Resteem for this post for sure !
and also the links you put at the end are so useful , Thanks again and good luck

Very helpful post for newbie like me. Thanks for sharing.

Downloading the Android app now,Steem on the go is the way to go for me as im a very mobile person.

ThIs post is very good, I always feel very happy after seeing your post, I always follow the posts you make .. many already the interest I know, ini feel very interest, thank u very much

I have tried app on iphone last three days, doesn't worked at all, tried to upvote or comment posts..."Broadcast error,try again"

Been trying for days, no thanks!!!

But on the other hand friend of my using all the time and it works ok, with lags but works !


Have you checked this post about your issue or commonly what other users experienced?

You can find solution there. Also iOS update is coming within couple days which have some improvements.

i just joined steemit.
hope you inspire me by upvoting me

Thanks @good-karma
Using this via your info and love it!
Cheers mate

Thank you so much for Information :) Upvoted @good-karma

Good work @good-karma! Thank you for your hard work!

Hi @good-karma! Nice to see new updates but I have some PROBLEMS and the main of them is that I can't upload any image from today's morning, because of "upload error" upload failed.
Next bug: no share buttons for external applications like Viber or Discord. They were some days ago but now I can't share any post because I can't get its link to copy it.


Thanks, image upload is fixed now... About sharing post, it is not a bug, we have introduced eSteem invites where you can share links via email and sms. It looks like more alternative methods will be added back with new release, due to request from users like you... Please check back image upload


Now fixed, thanks!
And please, bring back sharing buttons, I miss them:-)
Now sharing via email and SMS I can send only this
(I sent email to myself to see how it works).


It does navigate you to that particular post (click on Join), if you don't have app installed it will offer you to download the app (very convenient to invite friends). After hearing feedback from users like you, we have decided to add back sharing option with next release for Android. For iOS it will already be included with tomorrow's release...

  1. Unfortunately, not fixed.
  2. I'm not sure that I share Link in this situation, because I don't see "link", only words like "check my post on Steemit" and my contact list. I think much better would be to give user the opportunity to copy his link and paste it to where he wants.
