I am happy to announce next release of eSteem mobile. This version has some of the neat new features as well as performance improvements. Features like, claim rewards, beneficiaries, new language additions, performance improvements, bug fixes. More detailed changelog info is given below.

Translation contribution

If you want to translate eSteem app to your native language, or review app and let us know what words/phrases on translations can be improved, please join direct link for translation team: http://translate.esteem.ws. We have also rewarded Russian and German, Polish and Greek, Spanish and Chinese (traditional), Hungarian and Bulgarian, Chinese simplified and Swedish, Indonesian, Malay and Ukrainian contributors with help of community, other language contributors will also receive rewards with next translation update post.

What's new

  • You can claim your outstanding rewards from Wallet page
  • Beneficiaries, from this version eSteem mobile has esteemapp account as a beneficiary for every comment/post made through it. As a trial run for next 30 days, 1% of the reward is shared with esteemapp and used for further development of the project. I hope Steemit will also introduce beneficiaries to bootstrap competition among different Steem apps.
  • Arabic language and contributor has been added
  • Long waited, right to left UI support is implemented for Arabic, Hebrew and Persian language users.
  • Czech, Portuguese, Indonesian, Dutch, Serbian languages received update.
  • Overlay for nsfw tags by default (Due to AppStore and Google Play regulations, overlay will be enabled always by default)
  • steem-js integration
  • Fixed posts title wrapping
  • Fixed back button exiting app on Android
  • Login improvements when chain is changed
  • Upvote option for new post creation
  • Currency update bug fix
  • Many improvements on navigation.
  • Performance improved, I am quite happy with new performance improvements on this version. I hope you will feel them as well. But don't just take my word for it, try it out yourself ;)

Thank You to all contributors and translators! eSteem supports multi-currency, multi-language, multi-account, multi-chain, multi-notifications!

Thank you for posting @good-karma.

Appreciate your diligence in keeping Steemit up-to-date with regard to eSteem. It is an important part of the Steemit experience.

Thank you for your work in this endeavor.

Wishing you all the best. Cheers.

great job!
since the Steemit Marketing Team said that a mobile app is one of the priority for Steem, are you in touch with them?

·

Thank you!
The more mobile apps and alternative clients we have the better it is for community. I am in touch with Steemit Inc team.

·

Thanks @klye! New version might take couple hours until Google PlayStore indexes it to all their servers. 😉

·

Yes! It is released on Google PlayStore, if v1.4.2 is not available yet, it might take couple hours, depending on how fast Google will reindex it to your country.

You can also download APK directly from Github:

Hey brother,
I am working on eSteem desktop app which is completely new design and user experience (no eta at this point, but shouldn't take long). I wanted to take time to build it right and have easier entry point for any user... Next week will share some screenshots and sneak preview of the new desktop app. Stay tuned 😉

Wow, this is looking better and better and I'm very glad to see a 1% portion going to the esteemapp for further work. Good for you, good for us all! Congratulations on a very good product on your pursuit of excellence. Namaste :)

Great job! especially for implementing the beneficiary feature. Will tried it out on eSteem. It's time to start voting or posting from my phone.

·

Thank you @pnc! Appreciate the support, feel free to reach out if you have suggestions, feature requests etc. 😉

·

It is initial implementation of that, please do report issues when you spot them, I am sure there will be alot... :)

Please report them here with screenshots if possible: https://github.com/esteemapp/esteem/issues

Thank you for your contribution on Arabic, I am sure many new comers will be grateful!

Great, this version has good transitions compare to previous version (while opening and closing post). Gonna check other features soon.

Meanwhile, Can you check Steemion please? Its also great and specialy I loved the UI of it. If you can take some things from it that would be awesome.

For features no doubt esteem >> Steemion but for ui Steemion >> eSteem :wink:

·

Thanks for feedback! ;)

I have checked that app in early days, what part of UI you would like to see improved on eSteem?

I am thinking to apply some material design elements and slowly transition to material design and effects.

·

For weird reason, Steemion is not loading any content today. So I will put what I can remember.

  1. Yep, material design.

  2. It shows type of fish based on user's steem power. For example, for me it shows 'salmon', for you it shows 'shark' with little fish icon by side.

  3. Imo Steemion's color combination is more eye catching. (you can check on google play link below).

  4. On right sidebar (or whatever it's called) it shows popular topics / tags based on steem power . I think this would help users to decide tags for their stories and they would be easily able to navigate through topics interested.

English is bit weak, hope you got the point.

I like color of our SteemFest app which is similar to what Steemion uses. I was thinking about coloring aspect a lot lately which is one of the first requirements or catchy part of material design. Right now eSteem has tag search, but was thinking to have list of tags by default. Will add it to github so I can track this. Thanks for input and suggestions ;)

To think that this post is barely scraping by 65$ is remarkable really when 6 months ago you wouldn't have found content like this on Steemit without rewards of at least 500$

Awesome!

There is definitely a much smoother experience as compared to the previous version. Personally i am in the same opinion with Steemit dev team that mobile apps will be the main interface to the internet as compared to laptop. and so with eSteem's case. I wont be surprised to see the day mobile users surpass web users.

Good job and I cant show you my appreciation enough for creating an app that solves my problem (need for mobile).

·

Thank you @awesomianist!
Appreciate the feedback, yes we put much effort on this version to improve performance and overall user experience. There will be improved eSteem desktop app for laptop/pc users. ;)

·
·

Bonus wonderful news!!!

As Steem needs more content creators, what you and other awesome coders and devs did was make it easier and easier for the content creators. growing the community in EXPONENTIAL terms!!!

·

Hi, thanks! yes next translation update post is coming soon! there will be few new phrases just before that! i will add Filipino to the list of rewards for that post ;)

Wow , this is truly great and i'm excited to download it and use it! Steemit is getting better and loving it more now, a fantastic way to do things wherever we go while chilling in our comfort. Thanks a lot for sharing. Steem on! :-)

·

It is getting there, we as developers working to bring simpler use cases...and your feedbacks are crucial, feel free to checkout app and let me know if you have any issues, suggestions, feature requests

·

Thanks and welcome, hope you will enjoy your Steem experience here ;)
Sure give it a try, it offers some of the unique features, push notification, bookmarking, post draft, image gallery, etc.!

·

We have Day and Night mode for reading! Having more comprehensive theme changing will come later on, but it is on todo list. Thank you for suggestion! ;)

·

·

Yes, it is available on Android as well. Every feature we try to provide in both platforms so that users won't feel much difference.

after the last update - yesterday - eSteem seems not to work anymore on iPad mini. do you know if there's any problem with the iOS version?

·

Hi @paolobeneforti, Could you try to reinstall or check if you have latest version 1.4.2 ?

I will make an announcement post about iOS release soon.
It is working fine on my end, perhaps we can find what is causing it...

·
·

I'm reinstalling it...

·
·
·

it's still stuck on the first screen

Awesome! Really love the app!

Claim rewards is a really cool update😄.. Will you work on the translation in Hindi language?

·

Hi, thanks! Yes, we had couple contributors but so far language is not fully done yet. Feel free to join and help is review translations so we can add Hindi to our next release 😉

·
·

Sure, happy to help in that..

Can't wait to try it!

I can't post or claim rewards. It says broadcast error.

·

Hi Rahul,
Are you on latest version? Have you tried to logout and login back or reinstall app to be sure? Couple others also mentioned this error after upgrade, perhaps we can find a fix... Let me know. Thanks!

·
·

Yes I updated it today and also tried logout/login still does not work. My android version is 6.0 if it helps.

·
·
·

Thanks for version clarification, yes it helps. I have Samsung with Android 6.0 as well, it seem to work. I will try on different device to see what might be causing it...

·
·
·
·

Okay. Best of luck fixing it.

·

Server got stuck, should be okay now... please try again ;) thanks!

·
