amazing updates

Thanks kings!

I'm glad I made the switch form Partiko. Much happier with esteem. Going to check out the desk top soon. - thanks esteem

Stay tuned for v2.2.0 releases for mobile app, new version is blazing fast as well as filled with new features and experiences! 😉

I have not tried Partiko so far, but I am happy for the new post promoting and post boosting with eSteem Points (ESTM) feature.
I am currently using eSteem Surfer 2.2.0, and I have not used these features so far, but I will try at least one of them soon. Most likely the boost feature.
The eSteem Surfer 2.2.0 desktop application is currently looks so promising with these features that I will maybe switch from to eSteem Surfer. I love the fact that we are earning eSteem Points (ESTM) literally with everything. Even for simply using the application.
But my favorite is commenting, of course. Users are earning 5 eSteem Points (ESTM) for each comment, so this also encourages real, human interaction.
The eSteem Surfer desktop application (and the eSteem mobile application) can be a real community builder in the long term.

We are working web version of Surfer and will roll it out slowly as well, so mobile app, desktop app and web app all will work in harmony.

About boosting feature, we should note that boosted posts will go through review of our human curators if doesn't meet quality criterias then refund happens within 24 hours automatically. Also initially we are rolling out boosting of posts which is made via eSteem apps, if you boost your post you submitted from steemit or other interface, you will likely get refund within 24 hours.

Of course, the posts need to meet some quality standards. It is totally/absolutely understandable. But can we read more details about these quality criterias? Just to know what are these quality criterias exactly. If the description is well detailed, then the users will know what to boost, and what not to boost.

Yes, of course. We have discord group where our moderator can answer about criterias. We have posted in a past about them, will consider publishing them again soon. Thanks for feedback!

Two questions - why did you switch from Partiko?

What is the advantage of Esteemer over Partiko.

As you would notice, I use Partiko hence asking.

Good morning @oivas
I think it would be much easier to link a few posts for you then explian it all. Plus I am still working on my first cup of coffee :-)

Here's one by @chekohler who prompted myself to make the switch.

reasons to swith from partkio to esteem

and one I wrote explaining the time we waste on collecting partiko points

my last partiko post

Have a good day.

Ask not what esteem can do for you, but what you can do with eSteem mobile app! @oivas you can take our word for it or you can download it and enjoy a mobile steem experience that is so far unrivaled

Hey @chekohler, read all your posts about eSteem and maybe will try it too.. But wasn't there talk about Partiko going to launch an exchange by 2019 end? What if that happens? It may not happen also, but just curious.. Anyway. 😊

LOL I don’t deal with ifs I live in the right now so I’m going with eSteem and their token it could be a mistake but as for superior experience I’m already sold on this app!

My engagement and joy of the platform has gone up 10 fold and to me that’s more important

Thanks to @janton I have been using esteem for a while now and really enjoy it! Thanks to the esteem team for continuing to update and improve this app!

Thank you, our team worked tirelessly on upcoming v2.2 mobile release, we should be rolling it out soon as well. You will be surprised for sure 🙂

Have not tried out the mobile version yet. I think I will wait for the 2.2 update then go for it!

Thanks for the mention sir simms50, esteem is totally amazing!

Reblog count and list of people reblogged 👍

Right now I newly installed esteemapp exe file on my desktop. And strart surfing steemit blogg again. Also installed on my android phone. Totaly inspired by the ESTM token. long live esteemapp and estm token.

I think most of steemit users like this great apps!! Because the new update bost options is very useful to us! I am very happy to see this options!! I really like this version!! We are very happy...!! Thanks for this beautiful app!! All the best!

Awesome updates! I'm new to esteem and steemit, and I'm glad I was intro'd to your app early on. As a newbie, I'm super excited to utlized the new ESTM promo/boost features to help amplify my content.

How can I get to the desktop surfer? I tried to download it but am not sure how?

Check the Github page of eSteem 2.2.0. Scroll down to "Assets", then select the proper file to your operating system. There are files for Mac, Windows and Linux. And the source code is also available, because eSteem is an open source project.

Thanks for the help

Tested now the promotion thing! Any clue if it will show on "" (and when, if so)? I know you guys are not responsible to know it, but just in case you know more...

Does it take time due internal token conversion? Or will this only be shown inside esteem app?

We would love it if you'll make a Steemit app on android or iOS.

Wow! This is really a nice update from the team, i can't wait to see the v2.2 mobile release. Good work @esteemapp

This is fantastic update team and I am going to update my surfer app for Mac and excited to have android mobile version soon. eSteem rocks
❤️ eSteem ❤️

Great features. ESTM transfer to upvote is awesome.

thanks for this app

Great! Recently, at a discord, I asked why these points are needed, and here today it is an update! Thanks guys!

I have a question about eSteem points. When I shedule my posts with use of a draft, I don't have points for posting. Is it ok?

Yes you don't need points for posting. Scheduling and everything works out of box, points are extra rewards you can mine using eSteem. And you can use ESTM points inside eSteem, for promoting post, boosting post, you can even gift ESTM to any other users.

Nice update!
Unfortunately I'm still on the move right now.
I can't wait to try this release on my MacBook!

Awesome job guy's , the interface looks great, usability is great and the new features are realy awesome... Thanks !!

Parece atractivo

Great bunch of features launched. Super excited for mobile version. Hope to get it soon.

After a gap of two day of absence from Steemit when I came to post today through Esteem, that was the first prompt shown that - NEW VERSION IS AVAIALABLE - down load now. Infact I was and am happy as from my first week in steemit onwards esteem was my favorite.

Hope our life becomes more easier and convenient with this new version.

Congratulations and All the best for all the brain behind this.

I wanna try this.
But I am mostly using your app and I am still switching between yours and partiko's app x)
Will the app by update?

This is some huge update! Bet i should jump back to using esteem since there is an incentive to using it

I had troubling to sign in ,post and vote on eSteem Surfer. Why? Please, Can you help me?

Great work team, I am really impressed by the quality of application that you have created. The introduction of estm is also another milestone achieved I hope that there are plans in making that at some point we will be able to change them for Steem.

Congratulations @esteemapp!
Your post was mentioned in the Steem Hit Parade in the following categories:

  • Comments - Ranked 9 with 54 comments
  • Pending payout - Ranked 1 with $ 142,07

A good update. But the esteem team should endeavor to make the mobile applications enjoyable like the ios version.

I am currently checking the 2.2 surfer now.I must say it is awesome. Fast and efficient and many useful features. This will definitely my condenser of choice especially when exploring and interacting with the steem blockchain. 👍 👏

I've just installed it on Ubuntu and looking good. I did notice on the points tab the tip on the post icon is the same as the one for share. I'll look out for any other issues. Just exploring what I can do with boost and promote.

Esteem app is very glitchy. I think you guys need to update it as opposed to directing your efforts to something else.

Quality unread of quantity.

Wow the new app version is so much better. It doesn't lag as much and seems lighter like Partiko. ❤ I use both and now I will still use both. Hehe. Points/tokens here and there and everywhere! 😆

Why don't I make sign in?

Well done and keep up the great work! Will keep supporting the project

Hello, can anyone help me? I already updated to eSteem Surfer 2.2 but when I try to publish it says Error SDK: sc2-sdk error.

Hola, alguien puede ayudarme? Ya actualicé a eSteem Surfer 2.2 pero cuando intento publicar me dice Error SDK: sc2- sdk error.

I am currently using the esteem app v2 (early access) with this comment. I assume I did got that right. There were two similar apps of esteem, the other one has "mobile legacy" in it if I'm not mistaken. I installed this one to see what's in it using esteem app once again. I tried it before and it was all over the place. It was probably the previous app.

With this I've seen some improvements though I still saw some cons and hassle to user experience but most were comprehensive. I think, it needs to be more responsive as it should provide better user experien

New release is scheduled to come out this week, try it out. We will announce release from this account soon.

Thanks for the post.

Wonderful update. i am waiting for it...

Nice update!
