What's eSteem

For those who find eSteem related post first time and don't know what eSteem is: It is mobile and desktop application for Steem! eSteem is offering some of the unique features (Bookmarking, Post Drafts, Image upload/capture, Personal Gallery, Notifications, many more) for mobile users! Evolution of eSteem desktop app is under development.

eSteem supports multi-currency where you can see post rewards in any currency you like (BTC, USD, EUR, RUB, GBP, JPY, KRW, INR, CNY etc.), multi-language (35+) where you can use app in any language you are familiar with, multi-account where you can add more than one account and easily change between accounts, multi-chain where you can use both Steem and Golos chains, multi-notifications where you can get notification for your multiple accounts for following activities Vote, Follow, Unfollow, Mention, Comment, Reblog, Scheduled post publish, etc!

Check out this blog @good-karma for more related posts and latest announcements.

What's new

  • Schedule posts - you can now schedule posts through eSteem. This feature requires permission of posting on your behalf by adding esteemapp account into your posting authority. To allow permission you should be logged in with your main password or have posting and active private key during advanced login. This feature is only available for Steem users (not Golos). You can move scheduled post it to draft then reedit or reschedule or remove scheduled posts from Schedules page from left side menu.
  • Push Notification when scheduled post has been published.
  • Android permission fix - when you download images from posts some Android devices didn't get proper permission, that issue is now fixed.
  • Mute and Unmute feature - initial features implemented, expect more improvements with future releases.
  • Bandwidth saver - you can find this feature on Settings page, which gives you control over your internet usage. You can choose to download images or disable them by default. This way you can tap on image placer to download individual images if you want.
  • Nsfw filter improved - dark overlay replaced with image now all images are replaced with placeholder when you disable nsfw content. Expect more improvements to handle nsfw text filter in future releases.
  • Beneficiary reward changed from 1 to 5% after initial 30 days period.
  • Finnish language added
  • Thai language added
  • Urdu Pakistani language added
  • Bosnian language added
  • Korean language added
  • Hindi language added
  • Header buttons spacing adjusted
  • Fixed night mode coloring on some pages

Thank you Craig for the compliment... :)

I am sure there will be many mobile apps on top of Steem soon, but happy to be the first! And with eSteem desktop and continuous development of mobile app, eSteem will contribute to the user growth and bring more utilities, like marketplace, exchange, entertainment, etc...

·
·

If I was going to develop a mobile app, and first looked at esteem, I would feel intimidated, and see 1 year of work ahead of me just to reach where esteem is now, and by that time esteem will be 2 more years ahead in development, you're a mad scientist :)

·
·
·

He is a Elon Musk on Steemit @craig-grant😊.....check my non-techy post Becoming Sandy Wexler at your free time boss!

·

I am just getting on board with it now. I am a relay user for reddit. I hope esteem is as good as it sounds!

·
·
·

Thank you very much for this post.
I have followed and upvoted, please do the same thing for me to help each other.

Keep up the good work @good-karma! You're doing a great job! i'm enjoying my experience using eSteem app and recommending it to my friends! :)

·

Appreciate the comment brother! Glad that eSteem is helping with your experience... :)

·
·

Indeed! Especially since my friends are signing up ive been recommending esteem all the time! :)

Looking better and better every step of the way! Thanks for sharing the updates and namaste :)

·

Namaste Eric! 🙏

How can anyone possible type their unwieldy Steem password into their phone? Serious question! Is there a work-around for this?

·

There is, check out this post for more details. You can login with Advanced option.

·
·

Yeap that's how I use it... Logged in once and that was it...I don't quite understand there while complicated password thing though

·
·

Thank you, i appreciate the help. @ironshield

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

  • Upvotes - Ranked 2 with 737 upvotes
  • Comments - Ranked 2 with 140 comments
  • Pending payout - Ranked 1 with $ 1350,7

Advanced login does not work. I scan my post QR, active QR, enter my username and it says the password is incorrect

·

Advanced login has 2 password fields, one for private posting key and one for private active key. Please make sure to scan accordingly, if it still doesn't work... Could you please share screenshot of the error message? Thank you!

·
·

Oh my bad, forgot to press show private key, nevermind, awesome app!

I love the app and for me is the best and it will get better and I believe it will be just like @craig-grant says.

nice...resteem and upvote for your post....

Filipino Translations Updated. 13/13 done well. :) Glad I was able to contribute.

Excellent work and keep it up my friend @good-karma can't wait to upgrade and get busy Thanks!

Looks like steemit has become more great and exciting through this app, I didn't knew there was an app for steemit, I was Using it in google chrome till now, but after reading this, I will download It and enjoy steemit more as It looks like the app is packed up with a lot of features, just I want one more feature If it is in your hand to split the blog post and resteemed posts so that I can resteem more posts without any doubt. Great work there. Resteeming this post.

·

Sure, it is possible. I will add this to next release todo list ;)

·
·

@good-karma Thank You 4 Your work... I'm 9 days new but I will be a witness 4 You as soon as I figure out how to do it. Thanks again @good-karma

UpVoted, Resteemed & Following for 6 days... please consider following me.

           ~~~ STEEM On !!! ~~~

Finally! I'm downloading this app right now. I will let you know how the Urdu translation holds up. Also waiting for that desktop app!

Great job, keep up the good work.

·

Typing on it now. More snappier then the previous build I was using. Postings would hang and top of the feed would be blank now it's smooth! Thanks again for working so hard on building this app!

Could the schedule a post feature allow upload of a text file? Is that a possible improvement? Love the way we will be able to embargo content with this!

·

Yeah, It is possible although on mobile you rarely work with text files but for desktop version of app it makes more sense... Would you use upload file from your mobile ?

·
·

Only until the desktop version had the feature! (Because I am not aware of any other way to 'schedule a post' ) :) Thanks for the reply!

with a platform like this, it is much easier to convince everyone to join steemit...great job!

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't the steemit blog said something about a mobile app in their 2017 marketing roadmap post? I would not understand if they put effort in their own mobile app as we already have a pretty great mobile app called esteem 👌

Wow! The UI looks slick!

Plus ability to schedule posts?

Missed it on Steemit...

Now I am SOLD!

Downloading eSteem on my Android device.

Can't wait for the desktop version!

감사합니다. 굳 카르마.
나는 이스팀앱에서 스팀과 스팀달러 받기 기능이 지원되었으면 좋겠습니다.
스팀 받기 기능이 지원된다면 이스팀은 개인간 상거래의 결재앱으로 작동할수 있습니다.

Thank you. Good karma.
I would like to have the ability to receive Steem and Steem Dollars from the Is esteem App.
If Steem Receiving is supported,esteem app can act as a payment app for inter-personal commerce transactions.

·

Hey @leesunmoo!
Of course, now we have Transfer page. I think we can also implement request payment feature, need to think some details on how it would be really helpful. Perhaps have notification when someone request payment and also have notification when someone sends payment?!

·
·

제가 생각하는 것은 다음과 같습니다.
지불요청기능은 상거래를 위한 기능입니다.
대면거래입니다.
상인이 5000krw 를 청구하면 상인의 이스팀 지갑 계정에 5000krw에 해당하는 스팀(예,5.2스팀) 또는 스팀달러(예,4.2스팀달러)를 큐알코드를 나타내줍니다.
소비자는 상인의 큐알코드를 인식하고 지불합니다.
blockpay 같은 사용자 환경이면 된다고 생각합니다.

What I think is:
The payment request function is a function for commerce.
It is a face-to-face transaction.
If the merchant charges 5000krw, the merchant's wager account will show a wager of 5000krw of steem (for example, 5.2 steem) or steem dollars (for example, 4.2 steem dollars).
The consumer recognizes and pays the merchant's wake QR code.
I think it can be user environment like blockpay.

·
·
·

Yes you are right 👍, if merchant wants to accept Steem and Steem dollar, it would be easy, but usually they want traditional cash/money, for that we will need gateways. Btw, Blockpay integration still works on eSteem, you can pay with eSteem if merchant is using Blockpay. :)

Thanks for all the hard work you've established so far. I look forward to Future versions. Unfortunately my pixel doesn't work too well with your app. :(

This app helps with exposure though. Keep on going!

·

Hi @jubedube, thanks for your comment! Can you elaborate on what do you mean by pixel, please?

·
·

Sorry, referring to my Google pixel phone. Specific issues I am having are unable to upvote, unable to post comments. I am able to view stuff fine, but I didn't use it for too long. It uses Android OS.

·
·
·

Oh I see pixel is device name 😊, have you updated app or was it fresh install?

·
·
·
·

Fresh install

·
·
·
·
·

I see, when you get chance please feel free to make suggestions and bug reports here or to our github so we can improve with next releases 😉

·
·
·
·
·
·

Okay, I'll look into the app further and see if I can replicate errors.

Genial, felicidades por esto! Ahora podemos compartir con la comunidad de Steemit desde cualquier parte y en cualquier momento.

Hello brother @good-karma, This is a good app for Android smartphone, but I have a similar complaint @curiesea. Because im use xioumi smartphone note 4, maybe this complaint because I use a smartphone that is low quality. So I think that, for the latest update of Android esteem, to be suspect for all smartphone models. Thanks for attention!!!

·

Hello @foways, Can you try to restart app, it helped for some users? Also are you using latest version, please check Google PlayStore?!

·
·

Is the bandwidth saver on the iphone version? That would really help! I sometimes find myself in low cell connectivity areas.

·

This release is about Android, but in few days it will be available for iOS users...

·

Yes it should, although not sure about performance for older devices but we do support them, try it out and let us know 😉

I've been using it for a few weeks and it's really nice. Only thing that doesn't work for me are error messages when replying and upvoting. I haven't tried to post a blog post from my phone, usually do that complex stuff on the PC.
The update hasn't fixed the inability to upvote / reply for me.

·

Thanks for comment! What error have you received when voting and replying with this new version? Perhaps you can help us identify the issue, what happens when you try to vote, device version would also help...

·
·

Thanks! I just tried to upvote your reply, made a screenshot of the error message. After that I tried to post that screenshot as a reply, made a screenshot of that error message too. Uploading from PC now:

·
·

That's indeed unexpected and strange error. Thanks for following up, one more question, how have you logged in, with your main password or posting private key through Advanced login option?

·
·
·
·

I got the same problem, logged in with short password; How do you log out ???

·
·
·
·
·

You can log out from menu under your reputation there is extra menu, once you click/tap on it, it will open extra menu options, like Profile, Follow, etc and bottom you can find Logout option, let me know if you could find it...

·
·
·
·
·
·

Yes I found it, thank you; So you have to log in with your active key to be active !

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Are you still receiving error message? If so can you try this version https://www.dropbox.com/s/ii5ezat29bj74od/android-armv7-debug.apk?dl=0 ? You should uninstall what version you have installed and install from above APK to test, if this fixes the issue, I can then release minor update to Google Play. Thanks!

·
·
·
·

I don't know anymore. How do I find out? I just forced the app to stop, started again, but didn't have to login again.

·
·
·
·
·

You can try to log out and login back to see if issue is resolved.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I restarted the phone, started the app again but didn't need to login again, weird. Still the same:

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Have you tried to logout and login back again? I will try to reproduce this error to find out what's happening

great going @good-karma . honored to be a part of this project thorough the translations. your dedication is inspiring!

Thanks! I have it on my ipad for now but I have problems with it not being able to log me in. I will try the new Android version on my phone.

·

A quick update: It works fantastically well on Android and I realized what I did wrong trying to log in on my ipad: I tried entering the @ in front of my username. Oops 😜 May there be a way to filter out the @ if somebody enters it by mistake? Just a suggestion 👍

Nice! good to know there's a mobile app for Steem. Will make life much easier while out of house/office. Thanks for letting us know.

Nice I've just downloaded it in Android and it looks good.

Thank you

The integrated post-schedule tool is a game changer, I'm definitely snagging this!

Hope this new version solves the upvote and comment problem my 1.4.4 experience "broadcast error."

·

Yes, it should. Please let me know if it doesn't. Also error messages are handled better, you will get more reasonable message if you receive error.

Great with improved features👍 I have been using eSteem app alot and its great! Keep up the great work. Full Steem Ahead!
Best regards,
André

Great work!
I downloaded it yesterday and did have a few issues though. Any time I try posting something I get "broadcast error"

·

Please try new version if you see available update on Google Play. It should solve that issue, if not, let me know... ;)

·
·

Sure, thanks!

Looks great!
I am posting this comment from my android on eStreem right now and I couldn't expect any better.
Thanks

·

Great! 👍

OHHH MAN this is what i was just asking myself the other day I hope someone makes a scheduled posts!!!!

I just updated the esteem mobile version. Im one of steemian who is faithful with this app. You've worked hard step by step to satisfy all Steemit users especially those using Steemit on their smartphone. I really appreciate and appreciate your hard work. Thank you so much @ good-karma.

I am already a regular user of eSteem and love the platform.

Good work, keep it up.

esteem app looks truly incredible ... with some advanced features makes it even more user friendly. esteem ROCKS!

Great improvement for android, and jow about iOS ? Thanks @good-karma

·

iOS update should be ready tomorrow... Stay tuned!

·
·

Thanks @good-karma, waiting for it

Amazing App, Esteem is going very well and i'm enjoy the new updates.

Scheduled Posts. I was about to request that functionality and BAM you just included it. I love it and the Data saver thing is Awesome. It was killing me hahaha I'm glad it was updated. I'm updating it right now.

Just downloaded the app - looks good. Thanks for the effort!

Just voted as a witness for you @good-karma
Keep up the great work my friend. I am so happy to have finally gotten esteem to work on my phone. Thank you for all you do! Cheers

·

Great Post!! I am new to Social Media stuff, and yes, need to post my first Steem article (in the making as we speak!!). Keep up the Good Work!! Much Success-Scott

·

Thanks @scotte35 and Welcome to Steem! :)

It's great I Love it. I do use my pc at home, but when out and about it's eSteem. :)

This is awesome, got my up-vote and review on the google store. Nice job!

·

Appreciate the review @currencycrypto! ;)

·
·

Anytime, i appreciate the app.

Thanks for the heads up, that's awsome news. I put up a post with it on my android phone and it works well. I'll keep my fingers crossed that everything is fixed. Thanks for sharing.

A surprising result for eSteem, reaching 1000 more than your post.
This is amazing.
Good job @good-karma

I remember when this first came out,it was awesome with a few bugs. The latest realize so far seems amazing!! Good work!! PS I wrote this comment from esteem :)

·

Glad to hear that you are still around and using app @gre3n... Yeah, app improved a lot and came long way since start :)

That's really a lot of extra features. Mobile users will really find them useful.

This is superb. Great news. Translating to so many languages is undoubtedly a smart step towards globalization. Hell lot of an effort i can see. Cheers!!!!

·

Yeah, all because of our wonderful contributors and their effort to make app better... Thank you!

ive just install it.. brilliant. keep on progress. make steemit wild!!!

Hi every one im a newbie so pls help me to incease my repution and pls advice me something so i can create good posts ply i ll be wating for your tips and advices

·

Your reputation starts with 25, it looks like you were spamming and someone flagged you comment causing decrease on reputation. To increase reputation you should get upvotes without spamming, try to engage with people and comment topic related stuff you should be fine.

Really find esteem handy and my friends are asking if there's an app whenever I introduce steemit to them. Glad I was able to read about it. 😊

Awesome stuff! I need to check out this App for my android phone

Just downloaded and trying out. Um, is voting working for me?

·

Great @bbrewer, let me know what error you are seeing if it is not working... ;)

·
·

I am not seeing an error message. Just not seeing the vote count go up and no change in the upvote arrow. Also, tried to post multiple times but nothing seemed to happen. Using LG G6 phone.

·
·
·

Hmm that's odd, so after login, is it not working on all pages or specific page only? There is front posts page, there is individual post page with comments and there is profile page where you see your blog posts, you can vote from all these pages.

·
·
·
·

On each of the above I am now seeing the blue spinner very briefly but no change after that. The vote count is not going up. Oh, and yes, I am logged in.

·
·
·
·
·

I will do few test for Android 7 users, it looks like there might be some bugs for that devices/users

It's a mobile port of steemit! Brilliant! What we all needed!

Nice App, i'll download later, thanks for that.

Awesome

Post a good post is not easy but this one I liked, continue doing good post, follow me and I will follow you

wooow amazing

Great progress.. I didn't checking is Croatian 100% translated ?

Can't wait to try it. BRB :D

I have installed it and happy with it.
One issue though, I typed a story and when I hit submit the 'loading' whirlygig popped up and disappeared but the story didn't get published. Didn't go to 'Drafts' folder for later submission, it just vanished.

·

Hmm good point and strange issue which nobody else seem to report! I will add functionality to automatically put each post to draft before publishing or give user a choice to add it automatically! About issue though, might have been network issue. Investigating more... 😉

Buen trabajo. ahora podremos trabaja en cualquier momento y lugar.

thank you for sharing...what are your views on 5G coming and crypto currencies please?

Thank you! Please keep these coming.

Oh my goodness. Thank you. I didnt even know there was an app for Steemit. So glad i saw this. Im just started and only have my phone at this time so having the app will make my learning curve a lil better.

You Killed It On This Blog! Great Information a huge Double Thumbs Up, Keep them coming!
