I have a problem with images on eSteem, some pictures in the posts are not displayed. Instead appears a massage "image not available"

·

Yeah, unfortunately some users use temporary links! But Steemit.com caches them that's why you still see them there...

I will look into using caching as well, thanks!

·
·
·
·
·

Yes it did, thanks!

·
·
·
·

No problem.

Thanks for the app it's really nice.... I have HTC 10 android phone. The app overall is sweet, elegant, easy to use, with all the features needed. But it seems to drain battery quickly, lags sometimes and heat up my phone. I believe that it could be something with how it uses wifi or/and signal. I say that because when I first downloaded the app and used it, I immediately had wifi connectivity problems and phone heating in which I did not have prior. I restarted the wifi router and connectivity issue was fixed but heating still occurs. It doesn't get super hot but I noticed a considerable increased of temp.

With that said, I appreciate your work. The app is awesome. It makes using steemit alot easier. Keep up the awesome work 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾

·

Thanks Billy for valuable feedback! I will check out connection issue though this is first time report of connection issue not sure if I can replicate that. Please do let me know if you notice it again and perhaps steps to produce such issue. About heating I think it is because app is using you fastcache or ram which is needed in order to process some operations, am looking into improve those memory or computation hungry functions 😉

·
·

I will definitely let you know if anything. I am grateful that there is such a smooth app already because it makes everything much easier. Thanks again 😁

Great job Brother, I was looking forward to this update. Will update today.

·

Thank you! Please, do let me know your feedbacks on this version... 😉

·
·

I did installed it yesterday but upon opening the app, it does go beyond the esteem logo. what's that?

·
·
·

Can you check Google Play and see if you have latest version?

·
·
·
·

Thank you, i updated the app, it opens well now but i can't seem to upvote or post. It gives me a broadcast error pop up

·
·
·
·
·

Are you using latest version, please check Google PlayStore?
If you are on latest version still getting error, you might want to try to uninstall and install fresh...

·
·
·
·
·
·

I did uninstall it then I installed it yesterday again and i'm still confronted with the same problem. "Broadcast error, Try again! undefined"

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Ok thanks! Fix is coming soon stay tuned! 😉

Good job ! I use almost your app to create my contents.

Really happy you've created this app it still has flaws .. but the way its going its going to be better then the website

·

Thank you @deez, with each update its getting better! ;)

·
·

😎 keep up the good work @good-karma

We do need an app for steem to blow up even more

Didnt really have time to complete translations, sorry about that.

·

No problem @eirik! Join http://translate.esteem.ws if you haven't and translate whenever you can. Once language is done and reviewed, we will add it to next release of app and add you to next reward queue...

·
·

I still added some translations now so it doest look like I am stopping!

The screenshots looks so inviting. Congrats to all of us :)

·

Haha thanks 😊, feel free to share screenshot of eSteem on your devices...

a friend of mine that i got to start using steem has been trying to use your app is having trouble getting the app to open. do you have any trouble shooting suggestions?

·

What version of app is being used?
What is device and OS versions?

I would suggest to install fresh copy of the app or clear app data to see if that resolves the issue.

eSteem has support for almost all devices, but it might work slow on some due to hardware limitations. Also v1.4.2 had issue on some iOS devices during start-up, but previous version 1.4.3 should work fine.

·
·

Just installed version 1.4.4 on a Google Pixel XL running Android 7.1.2, unable to get past the initial eSteem load screen. Thanks for putting in the time for such a great idea, il keep checking back for updates.

·
·
·

Hey @niehaus,
I have just now pushed small fix, it looks like some devices were having issues. Please check Google Play for update and let me know if it works!

Thank you!

·
·
·
·

Now that was fast.. its fixed and loads up perfect, thank you so much for looking into that.

·
·
·
·
·

Great, happy that it is working now... feel free to report issues or suggestions ;)

Good stuff, but for security issues: could you or any other Steemian give me a good advice to handle security?! How do I deal with smartphone theft? How can I prevent that someelse steels my steemit identity/ master password? Is there a remote block via my Email? Thx in advance.

·

Hey felix, Yes security is utmost importance in everything we do! You have option to enable PIN code from Settings of the app where everytime app launches it asks you to confirm your pin code. In case of loosing phone or someone else lurking around wouldn't be able to use app without pin code. This is extra layer of security and there are other measures as well, like keeping your funds in Savings account, backing up your passwords, etc.

·
·

thanks for the fast answer. You seem to be on top of the game!

Look most elegant appearance, i have just updated to lastest version last night.. this version fast loading and more stable than 1.4.3. Good work @good-karma

·

Glad to hear that you noticed improvements, hope stability will get better from here on out! ;)

·
·

That is what we expect. good work @good-karma

@Good-karma Thank you.
It has the ability to send steem.
I would like to add a steem reception function.

·

Thank @leesunmoo for your comment!

Do you mean request payment or save recipients as contact or confirmation of transaction (receipt) ?

Great App!

I'm learning from you! Thank you for the info!

·

Glad to hear that! 😊

Thankyou so much i will be updating again :)

Downloading the app now. I will provide the feedback soon.

·

Great! Looking forward to it, you can also suggest new features... ;)

I just wrote big reply, app crashed. Sent crash report.

·

Thank you, just reviewed crash report. It doesn't say much but it looks like device had memory fault that caused crash. I will check if this can be handled from app side.

·
·

Can you please explain what kind of fault in memory? I didn't understood that.

·
·
·

Crash report doesn't say much except why app has crashed. This was the report, fault in memory address.. it looks like one core library might be causing this. I will see if I can get you custom built version for testing bit later.

signal 11 (SIGSEGV), code 1 (SEGV_MAPERR), fault addr 0x0
