eSteem server upgraded

12 days ago

This is short notice of recent upgrades on notifications, image upload and other services running behind the scenes.

These servers slowed down due to growth and increase in concurrent operations from eSteem.

To give you better mobile experience with eSteem, this weekend worked on server code to separate logic between notifications and other services. It will allows each service to grow separate from each other and eSteem to stay performant on backend. You probably will notice upload times and bookmarks, images, drafts faster than before as of today.

Next release of eSteem has also improvements for better usage and performance. Before we roll out upcoming release, we had to fix major hiccups so we can continue to scale and allow more users to enjoy their eSteem experience.

Stay tuned for more news about some other changes that is coming...

Steem On!

Very good work! One thing is still missing, that I find rather important. I can't use the slider when upvoting someone one esteem? Or am I just being a noob?


You can tap and hold upvote button for 0.5 second to get slider, also you can use Settings page.


I didn't know that too.
Is the slider available for only those who has more than 500SP ? I can't check that because I have more than that.




Ok, I was just being a noob then! Ok, I'll keep that in mind. Thanks for replying so fast!
That's some service.


thank you for the information, I hope this esteem application can continue to improve its service, and can run well.. success for esteem and you @good-karma


didn't know this... thx

Thank you so much @good-karma

I also couldnt figure out how to use that slider, thanks to you.

Excellent application))) Thanks for your great work done))) My husband enjoys using)))

Esteem is my favorite ios app.
Cool to know.

Good to know, you are doing an awesome work. I had trouble uploading pictures on slow network last week. Hopefully that is history now.

Upvoted from esteem 😆. It's a must have app, it's getting me through this morning waiting for this interview.

So here I am on esteem mate! You are absolutely right, its more rapid.
Thanks so much for this man!

Great work friend! And yes, it seems to go faster now.

Yup, it works a little Better, cuz sometimes it uploaded comments and posts for like 2-5 mins, now it's faster, thank you ;)

ESteem is now faster than what it use to be a month back. But then it still needs to be fast. It often freezes and on several occasions I had to restart my mobile.

Uploading images was a pain, let me check now. Hope the next repease will solve all our problem.

@good-karma It always does this on first go, than I enter again and no problem. Is problem my android or esteem app?


Parfait! C'est juste ce que je cherchais. Esteem fonctionne parfaitement!

Thanks for all your work to make steem mobile app be a good experience.

Great news, I can see much improvement!! On my IPad now :) keep up the best work


Many thanks for all your work on this. It's now a lot less buggy than it was when I started 3 months ago.

Thank you for the good work and keeping us updated 👍

there lots more to improve. keep it going .

Good work, thanks!

Great job sir, your contribution towards the growth of steemit is second to none. keep up the good work. Steemit taking us to the moon soon.

thank you for the information

waiting for new updates .

Great post

my app keep crashing

U jenius

Just getting aquatinted with the community, really, but look forward to the next release of eSteem. While I do still prefer to access the community via my laptop's browser, an upgraded mobile application could definitely change that.

What's the best way for us to communicate our preferences or suggestions fir future design and features?

Cheers, and thanks for your efforts here in Steem!

Thank you very much. Recently time problems appeared. I use eSteem every day.

Good post. Visit my post in my blog @auliasiddiq

Absoutely great work!! Appreciate your efforts! @good-karma! Thank you! ☺

Thank you for updating @globetrottergcc

Thanks for upvote

The system design better but one question sir im from Nepal dat it server so slow why can u give me answer the reason about to slow hope I ll get my answer

Nice, good performance needs time to implement so that we could use steem on our way. Thanks for the update

thanks for the upgrade. love the app..

@good-karma thankyou for this information sir this app is wonderful

Thanks for your application

Hopefully the next launch of eSteem will soon go smoothly ..
eSteem is very accomplished and very useful for eSteem users ...

eSteem best application

Great news dear sir. THANKS @good-karma

I'm using the browser instead of the app, because the app can become quite tedious and slow. I understand that steem is still very in its early stage. Maybe in a few years steem won't look the same as it looks now. App upgrades are very welcome, the app has a friendlier user interface. So I hope with time it will become faster and that we all can have a smooth experience.

Great news to hear! I've enjoyed the esteem experience since the first release and it has shifted my usage of steemit! Thanks good karma for helping the community grow :)

thank you very much

Great post .thanks@good-karma
have a nice day.

Nice you..

Thank you for his announcement of the upload in the gadge. I feel there is a disruption in my submissions evocative since yesterday, but I've found the cause after reading your writing.

Thank you for the information. It can at the right time for me. I am just getting to learn about steemit. Please when you have more information do not exitate to post. Once again thank you and well done. More gresse to your elbow

Just another question. Is there secure to put our password in this sort of applications? Is it open code to be verified by people?

Thank You for the continuous improvements. I have been using it lately on Android and iOS and have to say that the Android version works way better than the iOS one.
on iOS the app is still really slow, a lot of bugs, and keep closing by itself. I don't know if You are aware of it.
While on Android it runs pretty fast and no bugs at all :D

Awesome, I'll have to check it out.

Better is always a good idea :)

Today, l i try hard to post, and when upload image succes, i can't see the preview. I hope the update make #Esteem better for future. Thanks @good-karma and team


hi, @good-karma , after the esteem update, i then try to use it about 1 full hour, maybe more. overall upgrade makes the esteem so much better. but on my smartphone, for an hour of usage I encountered a problem for three times, the problem occurred when I opened the page people then do click follow. here two times I experienced a sudden stop app, and one more time when I tried to load feeds on the home page. I do not know for sure if this is because of my smartphones or the effects of the app. thank you for making this app better. regards

This a some screenshot when the app stop (you can see the time in background) :

First stop

Second stop

Third stop


hi, i tried it again, and the preview problem is normal again. the upgrade also fixes the tag column, usually I'm having trouble seeing the tag I'm writing, but now it's better. thank you

Here is what i got after update :

Screenshot for tag column:

And the image upload is better now, awesome, thanks again @good-karma and team

Short message but very usefull...thanks @good-karma

Great info! Very nice. That means steem is at least planning something or developing something to have a brighter future in the world of cryptocurrency. That should be a good news for all of us steemians.

Thanks for upgrade eSteem. My eSteem yesterday error image upload.

good post good-karma ...
but can you help me, how to get lost account password.
please give your explanation.

OK. Let me just say my mind now.
That app still have a long way to go. The gui still has issues and it crashes occasionally.
It drains data too, and to me, a browser wrapper inside an apk is better that this.

The developers should work on this.

Upvotes for the developers tho


Good job men

Thanks for this wonderful information about a great tool we used for steemit mobile access. Been interesting using this cool app and looking forward for this interesting update and performance.

watch this funny vid

I started to use eSteem yesterday and it works quite good! Keep on the good work :)

Hey @good-karma! Im very new to the steemit community. I found the mobile esteem app but for some reason I have never been able to get it to open on my iPhone... I put in my username and password and the screen just goes blank... it get a white screen... I've deleted the app and reloaded but still i can't get logged in... any suggestions?


Have you tried to scroll up and down to see if screen shows up? Screenshot would be really helpful, also would suggest to try Advanced login option where you enter private keys.

i have some questions about your application . so if i download the app will my password and account information be encrypted ? im curious , but anyways is esteem the same as the actual steem site ? or are there some differences ?


Everything is kept locally on your device, eSteem doesn't send any private keys out of device. Project is opensource and source code can be reviewed. Steemit is one frontend and eSteem is complementary mobile application offers some unique features.


ok thank you

I am new to steemit. Hope i learn soon enough so that i can catch up with all of you. Have a great day.

@good-karma This is great news. Nicely carried out!.

That's why it worked a bit slow these days maybe?
Also, should i reinstall the app or update because today hasn't worked at all. I bearly can read one post then is stuck there. Doesn't go back to the list :-(.

Or wait few more days till you finish updates.

Anyway, thanks for the app.


Thanks for doing great work for us.
