I'd like to announce today that I'm working with a fantastic freelance developer to build a mobile app for the steem blockchain. This mobile app will include features that I feel are missing from both steemit and esteem. This includes things like:
- a twitter style feed containing posts from people you're following
- direct messaging via chat
- push notifications, which will be used when you're tagged by a user (like this @vaporapp).
I'm deeply concerned about the mass adoption of the steem blockchain, and given that these features exist on modern centralized social media alternatives, I feel that these are the biggest barriers keeping regular users off of the blockchain. However, I'm also very interested in hearing from the community about feature requests, which is why there will be a support form built directly into the app. Also, of course, feel free to chime in on the many posts I'll be making over the course of the development cycle with any suggestions!
Here are screenshots from the latest demo given to me by the developer. Can't wait to get this technology into the hands of users!
