what about private keys? Still stored on your server?

·
56
  ·  2 months ago

Yes (encrypted). Feel free to join the discussion in steemit.chat regarding the canonical signatures to help us bootstrap moving key signing to the client side.

·
·
64
  ·  2 months ago

Don't store users' keys.

·
·
62
  ·  2 months ago

steemconnect v1 can be used to establish this. the tool is already functional in this way.

·
·
·
56
  ·  2 months ago

There's no .NET version of Steemconnect.

·
·
·
·
62

Then you will have to wrap it, asking for peoples private keys is simply irresponsible. I use your software but it is no way my recommendation for others to do so. You simply cannot guarantee the security of your system.

·
·
·
·
·
56

There is another much more suitable lib to wrap and that's what we're working on right now.

Steem community needs libraries in as many languages as possible so that developers all over the world could write as many Steem clients as possible.

·
·
·
·
·
·
62

That I agree with. Nice work on the lib btw!

·

Sounds risky

Are you planning on integrating IPFS with this app? - so we can have "decentralized' photos when posting to the STEEM blockchain? - or is this something that will require a blockchain hardfork?

·
56
  ·  2 months ago

Yes, we do and the integration with IPFS is already set and tested on our servers. A link containing a hash of the image can be safely stored to the blockchain so no hardfork is required.

However, there are two main reasons why we still use non-IPFS centralized cloud storages for image hosting:

  1. IPFS protocol never guarantees you that the image/file is going to be received by the end user that requested the photo.
  2. Based on our tests it may take up to 20 minutes to fetch a photo by its hash through IPFS, while the upper bound we can allow ourselves for robust user experience is a few seconds.

So yes, we are planning the integration with IPFS but we keep looking for solutions for the issues described.

·
·
56
  ·  2 months ago

This is a great vision. Keep up the work brother thank you.
I hope the issues with IPFS are worked out soon. That way we can really advertise SteepShot as an app that can enable decentralized photos not hosted on a central server.

·
·
·
56
  ·  2 months ago

Thanks. IFPS integration should also provide a way for photo creators to technically prove their authorship by storing image hash into the blockchain post. So we're very excited about this technology.

·
·
·
·
56
  ·  2 months ago

This is really exciting, thank you for the information. Im looking forward to more updates in regards to SteepShot. - are you using steemconnect for private keys? - how are keys being stored?

·
·
·
·
·
56
  ·  2 months ago

Unfortunately there's no SteemConnect for C#-based apps, so we're writing our own lib. We'll release a new update soon and then integrate it with Steepshot.

Short term solution is - we're asking for user posting key only and store it encrypted on the server for transaction signing.

Yeah this looks sick! I'm gonna check it out on Android!

56
  ·  2 months ago

Nice, I will take a look thanks.

59
  ·  2 months ago

Very cool! I love it!

One thing that I wish there was an improvement for was the ability to not have SteepShot photos show up in my Steemit.com feed if I wished. They're a little too austere for a traditional blog post and make the feed a little messy. Same with Busy.org. Is there a way to do that?

·
65
  ·  2 months ago

This feature would be great for all the new Steem apps that are showing up. I would like to post my science posts here while posting photos on Steemshot without them cluttering each other.

However, I think the best way to do this is by creating an alternative user account to use for the other services.

·
58
  ·  2 months ago

That's probably not possible as they are built on the STEEM Blockchain, on the other hand may it is entirely possible simply with a lot more filtering of the Blockchain data coming into the apps. Can anyone anwser this for us?

·
·
59
  ·  2 months ago

Yes! We're just talking about filtering certain data, not restricting it on the blockchain. :) But what do I know?!
I'm just a humble user.

·
56
  ·  2 months ago

The content that the blockchain client is showing is up to the client (steemit.com) that shows the content.

·
·
59
  ·  2 months ago

That's interesting. Okay. I guess someone is gonna have to write a suggestion post on Steemit! :)

·
58
  ·  2 months ago

Probably we should have another application to have only display "longer" blog posts. So let Steepshot for photos, the new app for blogs, (and Zappl in the future for microblogs).
Steemit remain as everything.

52
  ·  2 months ago

Hmmm. So just testing it, the "description" part should be placed in the post body as opposed to the post title. There should be an extra field for the post title :)

Also, the adding of hashtags automatically to the tags seems to fuck things up when viewing the post on other Steem platforms?

46
  ·  2 months ago

what is this for? How can I use it for steemit?

·
58
  ·  2 months ago

This is a Instagram-like application for steem blockchain.

·
·
46
  ·  2 months ago

Fantastic! This is a great app! A instagram app for the steem blockchain! Yes!

46
  ·  2 months ago

Yeah, I just downloaded in my phone (android),but it was early access.
It was fantastic! Nice

58

This is what I am waiting for! Thank you

So Steepshot pays from the steemblock chain similar to steemit? Looks great. Excited to used this on android. Hopefully has a share button so i can pull in peiple from fb.

52

Going to install it now, will give it a test drive over the next few days and see how I get along with it!

#IntagramKiller Could this really become a viable and popular Instagram replacement...Ask yourself, how much does Instagram pay you for making them rich with YOUR content?

Can you make money by posting pics? If yes, how?

hey there, i like it, i'm interested to know if you will add support for the body of the post, i'd like to give a little blog post there all from the phone, it will speed up making my little blog posts on the go with my wireless keyboard, please say you will add that and the ability to add the five tags.

58
  ·  2 months ago

appears the wallet is showing the wrong data thou, can you confirm that is not working yet? because my partner tried it on her phone and she had a figure in her wallet and she's only put up one post :) - also, she had it crash a few times on an iphone 7 plus. i tried it on an ipad2 mini and it worked perfectly fine. just giving feedback. thanks!

thank you for good posting

59

Is this like an Instagram for Steemit? Wow, looks amazing! I'm going to try it out and probably do a review! :D Thank you for this!

I have a question though! When you post a picture from this, does it show up on Steemit as a standard post, or is this a completely different platform just for sharing pictures?

Which iOS versions does it support?

Sorry if you've already answered this, there are a lot of comments to look through :-)

60
  ·  2 months ago

Is this based on Steem? Kind of like an app for it? Or the Instagram version of it?

Hi @steepshot, good post! I'm a new Steemian and recently joined the platform. It would be great if you could check out my blog and follow me if you like my content. Thanks!

Playing with it now! Reminds me a lot of Instagram. I agree with a previous comment about having a TITLE and DESCRIPTION section separate. Would be a nice feature :)
