For full details of the changelog and new changes, please read below.

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.

  • 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

When I try to submit a story with Esteem the "post" button is dim and not clickable or touchable. I can't post.

·
73

Maybe check if you have, not more than 5 tags ?

·
·
50
  ·  3 months ago

well. I had 5 tags, but between 2 of the tags I had a double space... changed to single space and I have the post button. Thanks. :)

This is exactly what I was looking for a steemit mobile app. It's going to be great to blog using the photo roll on my mobile and not have to wait to get in front of my laptop to post. Thank you for the great work. downloaded and followed.

Busy downloading can't wait to test. Keep up the good work you are doing.

57
  ·  3 months ago

I was just thinking about this!, but i am a little afraid of carrying my steemit account in my cell phone (that can get stolen in any moment)

·
73
  ·  3 months ago

You are right to be concerned! So that's why eSteem designed such a way so that your keys never leaves your device. And you can enabled extra security level by using PIN code you can find from Settings page of the app. Also you can only use your posting private key that is only responsible for posting and voting, no money can be transferred out without active key.

Thanks for the post, I just downloaded it and sent the developer an email with an issue I had upvoting. Other than that the App is awesome and has some pretty interesting features.
@victorvazco please upvote,resteem,reply and follow because you're awesome

@good-karma ,Esteem yes and no doubt. But for us in Aceh which is average using Sim Card internet network, very slowly, maybe this little complaint from me. And wasteful internet quota

·
73
  ·  3 months ago

I understand, try out bandwidth saver feature, which doesn't download many images. Go to Settings and disable Fetch images that will limit image downloads and save your internet quota...

Have you added refresh button? Was not able to find it in previous version. (Refreshing new, followed tab etc)

·
73
  ·  3 months ago

Thank you for your comment! Refresh button on which page, perhaps we can add it with next release? Front page has pull down to refresh and every time you change feed/filter posts are refreshed. Followers and Followings page also does refresh with new data every time you visit...

·
·
51
  ·  3 months ago

Would be nice to have pull to refresh capability in every place where one would like to update content. So we would not have to switch between new/feed etc.

·
·
·
73
  ·  3 months ago

Yes, as I mentioned... New/Feed page (or front page) has it already. As for all other pages, pull down to refresh is not proper because those pages are for reading, transferring funds, uploading profile picture or cover picture, etc. Will consider this on blog page though, it could be very useful there as well... ;)

·
·
·
·
51
  ·  3 months ago

Can't see that function working on my galaxy 7 edge. Nothing happens, I suppose there should be at least an animation (like fb pull to refresh has)

·
·
·
·
·
73
  ·  3 months ago

Oh you are right, I just checked. It looks like we have disabled it in this version. Will re-enable with new release, there is also plans to improve caching of posts which should improve performance greatly...

Try restarting app to see if it solves the issue. For some users it did solve it.

57
  ·  3 months ago

Hello, i downloaded the app.
And i could log in, to my account and everything was good.
But when i want to upvote a post, then i get an error message.
Like this

Broadcast error, try again!
"Sinzzer""posting"

After this i try again, and same thing.
There is no problem with my network connection, because i can do everything on my Iphone.
And its a Iphone 5s.
Did i do something wrong or something?
And it doesen't matter wich post i want to upvote, same error.

·
73
  ·  3 months ago

Could you try restarting app to see issue gets resolved? For some devices it seem to help

·
·
57
  ·  3 months ago

Hello, thanks for your answer.
Unfortunately i already did that, when i saw your post about the app.
But after this replied, i did it again and now i got this message.

Hi thanks for the fast reply.
When i go the app store, then i only have one option for esteem.
Before i saw your topic, then i had the app for a week, and had the error problem.
After i saw your topic, i removed that app, and downloaded the latest version.
If am correct.
And after your reqeust to remove it, then i did and downloaded again.
Then i got the error message, what i posted in the last picture.

I got an Iphone 5s version 10.3.2,
The esteem version i got is v 1.4.5

To me it's not a big deal, but i saw it happened.
There for i thought , you need to know what is going on.
I can say, yeah yeah it's good, it's good, while i get that error message :)
Nope not me, i got to be honest and straight! Thats me!

Beside that, everything else is more then good.
Because i can also see the percentage of my reputation, i cant see that when i open the site behind my computer.
I mean those numbers between my post numbers, and my followers number.

Those numbers can motivate you, to even be more creative.
Thats very nice. Keep up the good work!
Cheers

I love the Esteem app. I would like to recommend a few things though. When your looking at your personal page i would like to be able to post something new from there. I'm using the android app to. I had to look around and it took me a little bit to figure it out the first time. And another thing, Some of the options like friends breakdown list would be handy to. And finding out who looked at each post. Maybe i just don't know how to use it totally but i like some of the options of the computer platform because it'll be accessible to more and more people when it's on a phone app. I understand it's a new thing and i uploaded it when you first published it. Thanks for sharing and asking us for feedback.

58
  ·  3 months ago

Awesome app @good-karma. Question though; does the app on ios have to be running to be able to post the "scheduled posts" or is it posted from some external server or something that will function 24/7?

·
73
  ·  3 months ago

That's the purpose of scheduled posts to be able to post while not using app or away, plan your posting time, etc. Once you schedule the post, that's it, because you have given permission, eSteem app will take care of publishing your post.

56
  ·  3 months ago

Great job on the new update. As someone who uses the Pin Code function, In future updates it would be nice for the numbers to be spaced a bit further apart, especially for those of us with larger fingers or Touch ID functionality :)

·
73
  ·  3 months ago

Thank you for suggestion, I will surely consider adding extra padding and bigger sizing to allow better visibility... Touch ID unlock is in todo list, will come with future updates :)

52
  ·  3 months ago

I can use the esteem to read and navigate, but evrytime I try to upvote or post, I get an auth error, this is on an iPhone 6s if that helps, tried to uninstall and install, and have newest OS X, anyone know what it might be?

·
73
  ·  3 months ago

Could you share screenshots please? Also restarting app seem to help for some users...

·
·

E steem was working for me yesterday, I was able to upload stories but today the POST button is not posting for me - it appears to be activated on touching it but the story does not get uploaded. I have tried saving and going out and coming back again but still the same. Any ideas?
