SteemWallet 1.0.1: enhancements, new features & translations now live for iOS and Android

in utopian-io •  5 months ago

When, the fast, secure and open source wallet for the Steem blockchain, was initially released about 2 months ago, I was already pretty occupied with SteemFest, but just had to finish an initial version of the project.

It is actually my first open sourced consumer oriented project and it is really inspiring to see that straight after open sourcing it, pull requests came in, both for enhancements as well as translations. Additionally the project has seen quite some feature requests and although I had reviewed and merged most of the pull requests I just did not find time to build, test and submit new versions to the appstores.

And although I have been very busy with SteemFest coming up next week (yihaaaaa!) I felt I should minimally complete a build with all accepted pull requests as well as trying to fix some bugs and easy-to-do feature requests. So I did and after a flawless review with Apple the new v1.0.1 is now live (google might still be processing).

Here is what shipped in v1.0.1 of

  1. Bugfixes & layout enhancements
  2. Added the QR-code scanner to the 'memo'-field too. Now you can for example scan that number from Binance. Suggested by @heimindanger
  3. Localised translations in French, German, Spanish and Romanian by:

Thank you contributors!

After SteemFest the will get (way) more attention from me to make it a robust app for signing all kinds of Steem related transactions with your phone. Should you encounter any bugs, or have any feature requests, feel free to open an issue on the github repository!

This looks interesting but I don’t quite understand how it’s different from partiko or another Steem front end. I’m sure I’m missing something.

Most current apps for Steem are focussed on the content consuming & creation part. SteemWallet in no-way tempts to address that feature of the blockchain.

SteemWallet is a plain straightforward "wallet" app for sending and receiving steem & sbd to encourage the use of the 3-second fast confirmation times for transactions of economic value. Its like an bitcoin or ethereum wallet.

Next to this SteemWallet will be expanded into signing all kinds of transactions (requiring an active key for example) in near future updates (after SteemFest), but will not become a content creation and consuming app like all those other frontends.


That would be the correct move.
Focus on the wallet itself. Include the market to check on the steem and sbd prices.
Improve the GUI, the design. Keep the app fast, as the transaction is fast.
I will be very much excited to see the next update on the steem wallet.

And goodluck on the upcoming SteemFest.

Thanks for the heads up! I've been looking forward to the iOS wallet for a while!

Its a amaizing opportunity to wait for us.we are really happy as a part of the way i use on Android so now i update this and use this features.. Thanks sir @roelandp

Nice project.

Hi @roelandp

I have a quick question which I couldn't see answered on the app page.

Can you use SteemWallet to easily send steem/sbd to external exchanges like bittrex or binance?


sure. you can send to anyone including exchanges. it has built in check against common typo squatted usernames using the “badactors list” so in case you make a typo and the user you falsely typed happens to be a bad actor (a typo username from an exchange for example) you wont be able to send.

very good sir @rolandp. your project is really amazing. i really want to be happy as part of steemit, with the way i use it on Android.

@roelandp, I've been using the Steem Wallet since the beginning of September. Should I update mt wallet or it updates itself automatically?

Posted using Partiko Android


idk how your phone does software updates? if automatically it should come in automatically or visit your appstore app and look for updates :)


Thank you!
