Resteem and mention notifications - you can now receive notification when someone mentions you in their post, comments. Also if your post is resteemed by others you will be notified of that as well, which I think is great way to know if you are involved in other discussions, if your content appreciated by other with resteem, etc. Remember we already had notifications on Vote, Comment, Follow.
Post types - you now can make post with 50%/50% default, 100% power up, 0% declined payout type of posts on submission page.
View posts types - you now also can see which post has which type of payouts right in front of post title there is an icon of Steem which indicates 100% power up, if there is an icon with Steem and declined text on top which means that posts have declined payout. All default posts without icon.
Blockpay payments, eSteem now supports Blockpay payments so you can do test payments in upcoming SteemFest. Blockpay terminal generates QR images and with eSteem you can quickly scan the QR and make a transfer, it is that easy to pay for coffee, tea, snacks, hotel, etc. anywhere that has Blockpay terminals (POS - point of sale). Blockpay uses @blocktrades for transfers!
Profile page design and functionality improvements.
Image handling - as you may know, posts rely on image servers, once it is inaccessible or service/server is down post literally doesn't show images, caching also has limits at some point. So to solve this, eSteem now has default image placeholder, if image fails to load you will see that default image. This way, application can continue without doing extra requests to try to reach image server which I noticed slowed down the parsing of the content.
Markdown parsing improved
Performance improved drastically, you should feel it in every scroll, every action. Although, more newer device is recommended to get much smoother feeling.
Many more improvements that you will find out once start using app, you won't regret it, this version indeed improved a lot. :)
Google PlayStore - Android
There are a lot more functionality that users have not discovered yet. I would recommend you to use it as often as you can and try clicking any place, try swiping right, left, up, down. If you find any issues or would like some new features , feel free to reach out directly at https://steemit.chat/direct/good-karma or comment below, I will make sure to add it on todo list and bring that feature in next updates.
