Thank you brother! Looking forward to receiving your feedback and suggestions, as usual 😉

Thanks for the update! Not sure if you remember, but I guess I was the first one to review the iOS app on the website :D

It's awesome that you're regularly updating it, although I haven't been regularly updating it myself. Thrilled to check out the new features :)

No crashes until now (on iOS)! Iuuupiii!!!

Currently writing with Android version. This is the best app on Google Play, period. :)

I have a nokia lumia 1210 i like steem and i like to have the app on my phone will you devlop for lumia too

Is it windows phone operating system?! Which AppStore do you use to get apps?

@good-karma man you did a killer job on this man, Just made my first post from esteem today, worked allot better!

I like this update :) Now it runs much smoother and some bugs were fixed. You did a great job! If I find some bugs I will write you a comment :)

And the list of updates goes on with more incredible amounts of work and dedication to quality! Great job!!!

Thanks for the updates and namaste :)

Good work :) Really happy to see constant progress being made on this app!!

It's only 2 hrs since I downloaded the app. Great User experience and easy to navigate. Congratulations are in order @good-karma

Just downloaded this for the first time with an S7 - very fun to take Steem mobile !

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

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

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. :)

Glad that it worked ;)

I'm going to test soon the result looks very good.

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.

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)

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.

Uhmm that seems good... have to try it! :D

Good work :) already installed!!! Really happy to see progress :)
Upvoted and followed !!

I am loving the deluge of notifications from the eSteem Android app.
Every notification is money in the bank!

Good looking out.

Yes, if you have enabled Vote notifications, you might get dozen vote notifications 😁


Notifications are the best :)

Wonderful updates, I'm gonna update it right now. Thanks for such an amazing work!

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

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...

Thanks for the post !! recently started!! learning so many things...... Thank you so much for sharing!!

Welcome to Steem! ;)

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

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...

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.

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... ;)

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)

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...

Great app by the way, kudos from fellow android developer!

Nice Info @good-karma, i would like to inform that steemian who use android version 4.4.2 get some troubles (Unable uploading, post comment and claim reward). I hope you could tell us how to solve it).

My phone runs well in marshmallow version.
Thank u for your attention.

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

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!

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.

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

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.

Thank you for getting back!
Did you have this issue with 1.4.4 or 1.4.3 version?
What iPhone and What iOS version you are on?

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

Great, thanks for details! I will do some tests and release minor version update if necessary ;)

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!

Yeah, always appreciate the feedback...that's how we can improve ;)
That's voting power indicator...

why the aplication of esteem dont support. I used Samsung galaxy A3

What do you mean, it should work for Samsung Galaxy devices? Do you get any error messages?

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.

Hi Jake, thanks for suggestions and feedback! Will consider this for sure, you are right though app has dozen features that is condensed and some features are left for users to explore and find 😊 will improve usability step by step

Just want to note its not booting up on my iPad2 for some reasson.
Cheers for the amazing app, using it on android.
P.S the profits on PC and The app are different.

Hey @vangelov, do you have any errors, perhaps can share screenshots?! Thanks!

Hello my friend @good-karma ... i am also part of Esteem user .. my complaint is not much different from @curiesea. And sometimes i have to post post because it can not loading .oke thanks for your explanation that try the power saving feature .I know Esteem from @curiesea. Because I use Redmi4A smartphone.

Hey @zikri, Could you help please check Google PlayStore if you see update for eSteem? Because we have pushed minor release yesterday right after 1.4.5.

I updated to last version, fastest than 1.4.4 on page load

Writing my comment on Android pixel. I reinstalled and restarted my phone. It works better after a restart. Issues I had before like unable to make comments are gone. You should advise others to do the same if they have issues on your post. Thanks for all that you do!


Great, now i can upload my image over this app, thanks @good-karma for improvment, a few days ago i cant upload an image over comment box, this ia what i hope on this app

Thank you. Be nice to see a back swipe added to iPhone app. To easily access settings or go back.

As requested, we have added back the feature 😊 you are right it is easier to navigate that way

Amazing, I did not know about eSteem Mobile. Great work!!!

Good job for eSteem and Steem...
I like it, Upvote & Resteem
Thank you @good-karma for sharing ^_^

Such a useful app, great job and appreciate the effort.

A useful program! :)
I need to establish myself!

Oh nice. The one I use now doesnt really work well. I hope this works fine

Thank you for your comment! Give this version a try and let me know what parts doesn't work or have issues... You can also report issues or suggestions here:

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 :)

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 :)

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?

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

I get this message now,

When trying to add a profile pic :/ restarting the app has not helped:(

Thank you for your report, It looks like we will release update soon with those fixes!

Wow! Thanks for such quick and helpful attitude:) can't wait until it works, I am so glad someone goes trough all this trouble to make the app top notch! :)

hi again, this is totally weird but oh so nice, I just tried again today without updating the app even, and now I managed to get my profile picture up and posting trough the app, without even updating anything, amazing :)

@good-karma mine is giving me this error message now on my iPhone 6 Plus ... worked awesome for the first month, but just tried to make a post and it's giving me this message. Just finding this post. I restarted my app and my phone. Any suggestions? Really enjoyed using this app so far, I'm bummed that it's not working right now.

this problem has occurred on several occasions for me, but sometimes trying again using a different WiFi or using 3g will help, other times I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall the app. But most of the times you just have to try at a different time.

It might help to switch the server used under settings :)

thank you for this info!! looking at the server under settings, what would I change it to? sorry, kinda new at this ;)

@brakan there's a new update that I just got that seems to fix this issue! ;)

Yes! Great news! You can expect a review on the App Store!

Appreciate that 👍

This is awesome I have been wanting a good app this looks great, Thanks for the info keep on steeming

I just updated the app. Look forward to using the bandwidth saver and the schedule post feature. Awesome!

These adjustments rocks! Cant w8 to try!

Awesome work and great additions to keep the platform growing! Thank you!

Cheers for the awesome work :) Use it daily to check steemit!
