I've just catched the release for my old iPhone! Working fine for now and looks more clean here and there. Haha! It's fun to see my friends feed is flooded with my "No image" images!

I would suggest to change that pink cover image overlay to something neutral (maybe original eSteem blue color will suit but a 50% saturated to gray?)


You mean profile page cover image overlay? Yes, 1.5.1 will have that change, some were also suggesting that


Yes, I am about that. Great news :)


Please support the legend's brother @good-karma 🙏


I have iphone 4 , will it be working fine?


Depends what iOS version you have, we are thinking to deprecate support for iOS 9.3 and below


Thank you sir!


he follow and upvote I follow and upvote back


Super! One oldie here too :)


That would be great!!


Nice comment !


I actually like the image overlay idea.

Looking forward to giving it a try.

I wish you could work on enhancing the notifications as well, then it’s perfect


Hey @journeyoflife, would you please elaborate or give some details if you were having issues with notifications and what parts you want to see improved? Thank you!


Thanks for your response , I was having trouble getting notifications for upvotes, comments, etc. if this can be made possible for a change, then everything would be perfect

The new app looks absolutely fantastic! Thanks for all your good work.

thanks good-karma post is very useful for steemians community.
we aceh await the next news of good-karma about steemit.


All he does is surely for the betterment of this community.

Is this the reason bout my log in failed


May be, but waiting for the best version is the best!


Could you elaborate more, log in eSteem ?


I'm trying to login using the advanced setting by scanning the posting bar code. The app just hangs forever once I press login.


You should make sure that you are connected to alive server. Settings page and see if Server field has green check if not, change to the one which has green check and save changes. Try again login!


Problem is on the Steemit side. Bar code does not change when private key button is pressed. I assume the bar code only works for public key. Once I copied and pasted I was good.
The settings and advanced login screens are buggy. Both jump the cursor down a line after typing so the cursor is no longer in the text box.


I see.... What iOS/Android version are you in?


best regards mr. @good-karma
I come from indonesia, follow me @rizkisyahmaulana
I just use my auxiliary esteem application, help me and vote me.
thank you @good-karma.

I will be trying this!


I sure will also.

Hi @good-karma! I'm using the eSteem app and it works well overall. Question: @exyle did a post the other day saying never to log in with your master key, only your posting key and the active key when transferring funds. Then the master key is just for if you want to change the keys. I'm pretty sure I wasn't able to log in to eSteem with just the posting key, unless I got it wrong. Is it possible on eSteem (I can try again later)? And what do you think of that as a security measure overall? Thanks! (I'm on Android btw)


You have option to login with only Posting Private key, please select Advanced login option... Application is opensource and can be audited by anyone and I have made posts in past about overall eSteem security and how to make sure you are using correct version and how to keep your funds safe, etc.


Ok, thanks for clarifying!

Nice!! Looking forward to seeing this new version in action :). Especially like the status check upon nodes. Best of luck with your project and I greatly appreciate the effort that you are making.

Couldn't the serves be changed automatically in order to give the best performance, it's kind of a hassle to change them by hand. And a lot of people don't know about this and say the app is working badly.


That's something to consider in future releases. If selected server failed to return results select next available server...

Congrats on this new version man, checking it out straight away!


Thank you brother! Hoping to get releases organized this year, so we will try different things and constant improvements!
Good work with Steemify, I was going to request if there is possibility to add ignore list where you can ignore notifications from certain users...


can we widraw via app as well?

This is do nice.. I think that without this app I didn't succeed on continues steem involvement. THX again

@good-karma While it is always good to see an update, I am sorry to report that this update does not fix the performance issues.

The app continues to be painfully slow on iOS.

Let me know if you need any help testing the app performance. I'm glad to help out.

Also, it stopped working on my secondary iOS 9 iPad. While the update was available for it, launching the app brings just a empty white screen.

Waiting patiently for the next release.


Hi @apostolou, thank you for your message. As I mentioned in earlier comment, we are thinking to deprecate support for iOS 9.3 and below due to outdated device api and security measures. We can reconsider with next release if we find proper solution to evaluate some changes...

Looking good already. Just download it.
It looks stunning. I can feel the speed and all.
I used it everyday.
I know esteem is a life savior all over the world cause of its mobile app.
Keep on steemit.

Nice post!


Hi I am following to u and your articles are very interesting good going best of luck to you. I am new to steemit follow me and upvote me.

very nice post and very help full to me thank's

Sounds good

The great news about eSteem App, and the programmer behind it, is that he's somewhat a perfectionist... (even if he doesn't realize it).

When he codes something, he feels the 1,000's of users using the app, and waiting for its next update. He does it because he can, and he enjoys when people use his creation.

He is even happier when people appreciate the work he's done, by downloads, upvotes, or even just compliments in comments.

I don't know good-karma in person. But I don't have to.... he gives a large portion of his life for others.. in what he does.. the long nights he spends doing what he does.

He's an app developer that talks to the users. He's not hidden behind a wall. He's approachable.

App developers like good-karma is someone I treasure, and we need more people like him.

Just look at his website:

He even puts a link:

Who does that? --- A sincere developer, who is happy and interested to connect with the users of his hard work. This is rare.

Hi @good-karma! You have received 0.1 SBD tip + 0.02 SBD @tipU from @dswigle :)

Check out new tipuvote! feature :)

There he is again! The cutest whale of all! <3 Thank you for your awesome work.

i see new Aplikasi From Playstore, the name is STEMION. this legal or not @good-karma

Ni is the latest application of mr. @ Good-karma, I come from indonesia, follow me @ zallina, help me in using the help app and choose me, thanks mr. @ Good-karma

I have used esteem extensively on my commute and love it. However, recently, it struggles to load. Iam operating on a 4G signal and not Wi-fi admittedly but I have no issue with the browser version of my device. For me it’s key that esteem is light enough to operate when out of Wi-fi range.

Specially created Activity manager.

Thanks @good-karma for providing this amazing steem app...

Hey @good-karma thanks for the update! If you need some help on the UX/UI approach I’ll be very glad to collaborate to the project! Best!

Nice. I just created an account. Couldn't sign in on mobile, go to the AppStore and BOOM! There's an update! How synchronistic!! 🤗

Amazing update for ios. Thank you @good-karma. I was unable to sign in into application because of limited server selection.

Great news👍 Will download it right away😁 Very nice features!

wow... i love Esteem app...

Thanks 🙏I was waiting for this.

I didn't know about esteem when i saw it while looking for steemit app but now I know.. I was using browser on my phone to reply a comments and read some article but so slow.. thank you for letting us know about eSteem its more faster and cleaner.. makes everything more easier to communicate to the community .. I'm on android and working well.. Is there a post promotion in this app I can't find it maybe not in here..
Anyway thank you so much it helps me and many others :)

awesome work! Thanks for the dedication!

he follow and upvote I follow and upvote back

Incredible thanks to @good-karma for this offering.
Frankly, I'm really looking forward to the eSteem update for the android version, because the last few days I was very difficult to interact with eSteem service version 1.5.0 even though have tried to replace the server as recommended @good-karma in the previous post.
I hope with the emergence eSteem 1. 5.1 android version will soon give ease of access, because I already love to die with eSteem.
I am very overwhelmed when I have to post via STEEMIT web version.
Best Regards

Haha..I've just keyed into the new experience o the iOS mobile app and it's a whole new experience ..I sooo love it .yall should try this !❤️❤️
