Been using the app since January and find it tends to lag and sometimes hang when loading Wallet. Also, when claiming Rewards (although it completes the process despite the jam). I have to close the app and reopen and it's back to normal. Doesn't happen all the time though! Just an fyi :) Great work so far!

·

Thank you for the input! You are right, I have received numerous bug reports and mostly it looks like device is running out of fast memory when it crashes. I am working on performance improvements with next release so new release won't be rushed, will only be published after thorough tests.

·
·

looking forward to the next release! just got a new phone and it's fresh with memory :( but i'm sure you'll figure it out. and thank you!

·
·
·

Of course, after next release, please feel free to reach out if issues are still persistent. Btw, with memory I mean fast memory (RAM) where most of the application operations are being kept during usage. 😉

I cant wait to see eSteem be the most used android app in app store. This app will make you a billonaire, mark my word. I just want to be part of the success story. I wish I can partner!!!

·

Thanks! :)
You are partner, every user who is using eSteem is the partner and contributor to the network. By promoting and helping network to reach more mainstream adoption, growing user-base ultimately will help us all!

·
·

Please I am patiently waiting for the promised update that can make me use eSteem only. Now I cant upvote, follow or unfollow with mine. I believe I am not the only one this is affecting. You can resort to doing peace meal update instead of waiting for many bug correction before you update. That will keep more people to use eSteem.

·
·
·

You are right, that's why next week release will come addressing bugs reported by users, proper error message handling, new language updates, additions and couple new features...

·
·
·
·

You said it can be used on desktop how? Is there a window version? If yes where can I download it?

·
·
·
·
·

eSteem desktop v1 is available and should be functional after changing websocket address from Settings page to wss://steemd.steemit.com.
But v2 is in progress which will be announced soon with initial beta release...

·
·
·
·
·
·

The simpler it is built, the better. Remember that everyone here is not a tech geek. Keep it simple. The issue of changing socket now is not sounding simple to me.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

As I said, it is outdated version wouldn't recommend using it unless you cannot wait v2 :)

Nice add ons... by the way I forgot the site to send bug alerts to... so I will quickly mention that the sound on embedded videos in posts do not work. However the issues I had previously have been taken care of by downloading a new app. Thanks for your dedication to the app.

·

Thanks @kyusho! Could you clarify what type of embedded video sound is not working? I have just checked youtube video sound is working...

·

Thanks! ☺️

Even yesterday, eSteem was a good companion on our Father's Day walk, as I have already reported. Only the app still crashes sometimes, and closes by itself. Also your tip I took into account and made a complete reinstallation. But the result remains the same. Nevertheless, the app does what it should and is an excellent means to always be up to date. Thank you for your excellent work my friend!

Nice to see an app being developed and improved continuously for steemit users.

I have a idea for the iPad version. It would be nice if you can add a split view feature. Nice app and I hope the dark mode comes very fast :)

·

It is already available, night and day mode is working on existing version! But thank for suggestions I will see what I can do 😉

·
·

How can I activate the night mode in the iOS version ?

·
·
·

Top right corner you have menu where you can change theme to Day mode or Night mode.

·
·
·
·

Thank you that menu was heavy to find. Maybe it's a good idea, to add an option to the settings. Because I was searching this option there. For me it's logic to search the option in settings 😂

I also have found a bug for the night mode. This looks not so nice but isn't important to fix.

Thank you for your help and have a nice Sunday :)

·
·
·
·
·

Thank you!

You mean you had difficulty finding Search menu?

Yes this issue was brought to our attention and we have already fixed it and upcoming version will have those fixes ;)

Congratulations @good-karma!
Your post was mentioned in my hit parade in the following categories:

  • Upvotes - Ranked 5 with 609 upvotes
  • Pending payout - Ranked 4 with $ 778,81

Amazing app! Will try to use it daily and give some feedback. Keep the good work.

·

Thanks, looking forward to it... 😉

·
·

Ok, trying to be helpful here. Since most of the things I identified are already reported here (data consumption and crashes due to loads of increase of memory cache for the app).
The app looks stunning, and it has an amazing flow to explore content from posts (one of the things I value most is how fast something allows me to learn). I would even enhance it with a customised selection of topics added to some swiping functionality to move between topic groups.

Other cool features to add:

  • (Android) NFC "follow me" and "resteemit"
  • (iPhone) AirDrop?? "follow me" and "resteemit"
  • Posts around me (allow optionally GPS to inform about your location and also discover who's arround posting on Steem)
  • More swiping (like going back and forward on history) and fewer menu jumps (I believe it's something I like.. so this one is personal).
  • Fingerprint unlocking (additional to pin unlocking)
  • Read post (synthetic voice reading the post)
  • Write from voice (ability to write using voice)

Anyway.. I am actively promoting this around my friends. Amazing work.

·
·
·

Thanks, great input! I will put these in our github as an enhancement suggestions.

Upvoted for the hard work you put into this!
Also I know you already heard but also having issues with lag of logging in it just keeps on spinning. This app can be very useful and makes easier to interact with when on the go looking forward for the new update!

·

Thanks, yes feedback is very valuable and help us to find issues quicker and bring you more and more stable and feature full app 😉

I recently started using eSteem on my iPhone 7. It's buggy here and there and has an occasional crash, but I'll say this is what will drive Steemit. Most of my friends who would not try steemit.com are giving eSteem a try. Thanks for the updates and the hard work :)

·

Thanks @framelalife! Will continue to improving it 😉

Have been using this app for quite sometime. Thanks

eSteem is Awesome .. i always using eSteem and enjoying.

I'm waiting for the new version with expectation

What a great resource! I have saved this on my computer to refer back to the different links. Thank you!

After I downloaded the eSteem app and opened it, I could only see the logo and it just stayed there.

·

Hey @htliao, could you please give details of your device (Android/iOS, version of operating system and eSteem app version) ?
Thanks!

·
·
·
·
·

Great, thanks! Will test it before releasing new version ;)

The app is nice. However it does need work. For instance for the iOS app the quick slide used to quickly go back needs to be implemented.

·

From post page to back to feed page or across all pages? We had users reporting that it caused unnecessary go backs during surfing. Now considering to enable that feature back because we have improved navigation quite a bit.

·
·

Well from post page to feed is now working. Or back to home, since update...But would be nice at home page to slide from left to pull out the menu bar/settings. Just a thought. Instead of having to reach to top left you know. Thanks.

·
·
·

Thanks for suggestions, sure will consider it with next release 😉

The app is fantastic! One the crash bugs are fixed it will be alot more painless, but its nothing to relauch the app and a great start to get steemit on the move to compete with the likes of facebook/twitter. I'm wondering if there is a better way to display the tags, or where is the best place to see the roadmap/what is being worked on or future features? Trello would be cool to see bug process and development. Just my thoughts and thanks again for your work! :)

·

Thanks! You can check and report issues to our github: https://github.com/esteemapp/esteem/issues

You can open Search from right top menu where you can search tags and see all other tags as well. It will be improved with time 😉

Whoa, night mode is something that this site needs for sure... Will be giving your app a spin :)

Thanks a lot for your gesture for the transfer of 28 SBD for the translation. :)
It's this gestures that show the human qualities of the Steemit community.
Keep on the good work of the witnesses that bring added value to Steemit and deserve votes from the community.

·

Thank you @charlie777pt for your help with onboarding Portuguese users through your translation contribution ;)

wow this is a very good guide , well updated version and features :-)

How is the project financed? Volunteer?

·

Project is financed/supported by community in general and witness fund also contributes to those developments of other apps like SteemPoll, SteemMonitor, SteemFest and few other not announced ones. Also eSteem is using beneficiaries feature that with time hope to create self-sustaining model. There are more than 130 people contributed to the project for translations and logo designs and other means, mostly voluntary basis, but also receiving reward/support from the community.

·

From post earnings probably

Great inprovement @good-karma,

I still cant upvote post in the app..why?

·

Have you logged in with your password or private key?

·
·

Yess it some times freeze at the logo too

·
·
·

New version is scheduled to release coming week, stay tuned and please let us know if you have any other issues or screenshots of error messages! ;)

·
·
·
·

Sure will..thanks for your time👍

It's very good. Thanks my friend @good-karma

Hello @good-karma!
Nice work on the app, it only brought up a BIG problem that made me uninstall the app. The app used up all my mobile data. After I first noticed the problem I uninstalled, and thought maybe a fresh install wouldn't have the problem :p
I was wrong :p
Could you look into this?

I now have to hop from hotspot to hotspot for more than a week. I really need mobile data this weekend :')

Good luck fixing this shitty bug.

·

Thanks for screenshots! I am thinking ways to control image downloads, from my tests I can see that image downloads are taking up majority of the traffic usage. Because people add different sized images and some of them are higher than 1mb or in some cases 10mb which exhaust mobile internet usage. Caching seem to decrease and limit re-download of images, but longer term solution would be to manually download each image. Rest assured I am on it ;)
Btw, you could try using Compact mode instead of Card mode, it should help while you are surfing through posts, but when you open post it will downloads the images.

·
·

Thanks for the reply. Some extra info: I've only logged in to your app. It used all data in background without me doing anything.

·
·
·

That's something very abnormal though!
So you opened app and logged in and after quick surfing, closed app and that's all? Rest of the data is from background data and notifications? Hmmm

·
·
·
·

It seems like it. Maybe it was loading the news feed in background the second time I installed the app since I could not log in due to lag. It used 2.2GB on my WiFi.

It used the data in background, because I was far from home and had not touched the app.

I hope this info helps.

·
·
·
·
·

Yes it does, thanks! I have now implemented to disable API fetching when app is in background. Also working on Setting where user can choose to enable auto download of images or manual downloads to which user has to tap on image to see/download that image. ;)

·
·
·
·
·
·

Nice! Really like what you're doing!
Also one small thing annoyed me a bit: When images are still loading you're not able to scroll.
Thanks for being awesome!

I just downloaded eSteem, cant wait to dive in and try it out. Sweet!! Thanks for creating what I believe to be a labor of love. Cheers!!

So anyone else experiencing a freezing/crashing app after leaving a comment?

·

Some have reported similar issue and I have fixed it, next version will have that changes ;)

Cool ... :)) I hope this app soon ok

Is it possible to turn off NSFW overlay?

·

Yes, next version will make nsfw overlay optional from Settings page.

the esteem apps is the best. and very beneficial for me. thanks you. I always support you @good-karma and esteem apps.
Regards @ijoel
