We are proud to present to you a truly open source project called SteemApp
From today on, SteemApp is open source published on GitHub waiting for Utopian.io support. This project is and will always be free for all Steemians who want to post content, view their feed, interact with other Steemians by upvoting and commenting. We have put a lot of time and effort to make this happen.
We believe in the power of "open source" and the way it will shape the world together with open blockchain projects. We are looking forward for everyone who is interested to contribute to this project by helping us implement features faster and for testing this app and posting it through Utopian-io.
What is SteemApp
SteemApp is a community funded and community developed mobile application which allows you to seamlessly post content through your mobile phone on Steemit Blockchain, to interact by commenting and upvoting and to browse through your blog posts and post of other Steemians. Feed functionality is being tested right now and is currently in beta. You can access all the new features by signing up as a beta tester: https://steemitapp.com/beta-testing/ you can find detailed instructions below in the "How to contribute" section.
What is different about SteemApp?
We have found a problem in Steemit. There is no mobile application out there for Steemit which is fast, native and open source. Most of the projects use React Native, which has a big compromise and that is speed. By working with Swift on iOS and Java on Android we want to build a native library to interact with the Steemit blockchain and the mobile phone so that everyone can use it in their own apps and projects. Mobile is the future and let's build it Natively together.
Our goal is to kick-start a community funded and community developed a mobile application for Steem that is pleasant and convenient to use every day. We want this project to grow and develop into the best, most secure, most comfortable mobile application for Steemit. That is why our team will continue working on the app to make it better and better every week, while constantly adding new functionality. We would love for you and everyone in Steemit to join the private beta testing of the Feed functionality.

For Android we use SteemJ to interact with Steemit Blockchain.
List of libraries used:
Our development team has put a lot of work into making this app native (without React Native), fast, and secure. We are always looking for ways to interact with the Steemit blockchain as natively and securely as possible, that is why we build iOS and Android app separately. Even the design and the workflow looks slightly different in order to make it more habitual for iOS and Android users.
FAQ: How secure is the app? Can I trust it?
We have set security as the highest priority. Private key will be kept locally on you device's keychain. This private key will never leave you device in its original form. It will be used for signing posts and will be hashed in a way that it proves that you have it, without actually showing it. We have decided to ask users only for their private posting key, that way you can be sure that your funds are all safe.
FAQ: Is it free?
Yes, absolutely free to use the app as much as you like. Our development team receives 0% from all your posts make through the app. There are no beneficiary rewards, no adds not in-app-purchases at all. This is a community funded mobile application. We are getting our funds only from post upvotes and most importantly your Witness votes.
We don't want to stop there. We would like to make the app functional, simple to use and with good modern design. Here is a list of functionalities we will be working on in later releases after 2.0:
- Ability to add custom beneficiaries for your posts
- Ability to delegate Steem Power through the mobile app
- Make custom footer templates for your posts
- Make and save drafts of your posts for later use
