Today I am pleased to announce the latest version of the Peercoin Android Wallet. This release offers many new features. To support this release I am taking donations (thank you) from Peer4Commit: http://peer4commit.com/projects/129/distributions/405. I am also using an affiliate deal with Shapeshift to support this release and future developments.
You can now use use your Peercoin to pay in multiple cryptocurrencies. Simply copy an address or scan a code for a supported coin. The app will show you the rate, and the amounts in both Peercoin and your chosen destination coin. All you need to do is enter an amount and press send; the app and ShapeShift will take care of the rest for you. If you specify an amount in the destination coin, ShapeShift will also pay that exact amount, meaning you do not need to worry about exchange rate fluctuations. It couldn’t be easier.
The supported coins in this release are: Bitcoin, Blackcoin, BitcoinDark, Clams, Counterparty, Dash, Digibyte, Dogecoin, Feathercoin, GEMZ, Litecoin, Mastercoin, Mintcoin, Namecoin, Novacoin, NuBits, Potcoin, Quark, Reddcoin, Shadowcash, Startcoin, Storjcoin X, Swarm, Tether, Unobtanium, Vericoin.
[size=12pt]Trusted Server List[/size]
In previous releases there was a hardcoded server which helped the app to validate the blockchain by providing block hashes. Now you can set your own servers of choice. By going to “Settings” and then “Trusted Servers” in the menu, you will be shown a priority list of servers. You can rearrange the servers as you like. The highest priority servers will be tried first. If all of the servers of the same priority fail, the app will try the next priority and so on. By pressing “Add New” or “+”, you can add new servers. By default I have the existing server in New York, but I’ve also set-up a new server in London.
Servers must implement the getvalidhashes API. I have created new server software for providing this API which makes it easier to set up servers. You can find this software here: https://github.com/MatthewLM/valid-hash-server. The new London server uses this new software.
[size=12pt]Transaction CSV Export[/size]
By going to the menu and pressing “Export” you can now export your transaction history to a CSV file which you can then load into spreadsheets as desired. The app will provide the date, label, amount, fee, address, hash, and confirmations of each transaction in your wallet. This can be useful for book-keeping.
I have updated the seed nodes to include the real-time DNS seeders found in the Peercoin client. This makes peer discovery practically instantaneous, and therefore improves the reliability of the app.
[size=12pt]Bugfixes and Improvements[/size]
I’ve gone through and made numerous bugfixes and improvements. The app should be smoother and more reliable.
I hope people enjoy!
