Android wallet 4.46.2 released
« on: March 22, 2016, 09:12:45 pm »

A BIP-0032 compatible Hierarchical Deterministic Groestlcoin Wallet

After a measure of hard work adapting the latest Bitcoin wallet (v4.46) for Android to Groestlcoin, the Groestlcoin Android wallet beta (v4.46) is ready for testing.
The app allows you to send and receive Groestlcoins on your device using QR codes and URI links.
When using this app, please back up your wallet and email them to yourself!  This will save your wallet in a password protected file.  Then your coins can be retrieved even if you loose your phone.

Changelog Groestlcoin Wallet 4.46.2 :
• Automatically close send coins dialog if payment was successful. This can be disabled in the settings.
• Adjusts to the new network fee rules imposed by Groestlcoin Core.
• Now requires Android 4.0.3 (ICS) for all subprojects.
• Hint to enable storage encryption.
• Allow raising the fee of an unconfirmed transaction. Uses child-pays-for-parent (CPFP).
• Pay the default fee for sweeping paper wallets.
• Setting for own name, to be added as a label/memo to payment requests.
• List animations for network monitor.
• Migrate build from Maven to Gradle. This should make things easier for Android Studio users.
• In-app payments integration (integration-android) now available on Maven Central and jCenter.
• Nice slide-in animation for sent payment.
• Tint incoming transactions in green, outgoing in red.
• Tint action bar labels.
• Material design for list of transactions.
• Update android-maven-plugin to 4.2.0, so we can use AARs.
• Use action bar submenu for filtering wallet transactions, rather than a ViewPager.
• Speed up transactions list.
• Update QR-code scanner to ZXing 3.2.0.
• Show derived addresses in address book under "your addresses".
• Show "to addresses" of received payments, rather than "from addresses".
• Speed up blockchain sync.
• Improve entry of password in backup wallet dialog.
• Share current wallet address by tapping on it.
• Update dialogs to material theme on Lollipop devices.
• Show and share extended public key. This can be used to grant read-only access to your wallet. The new option is available in the diagnostics settings.
• Record fiat amount for sent payments.

It is appreciated if feedback of the following is provided:
1.  Can you receive coins? (small amounts to avoid losing them)
2.  Can you send coins?
3.  Can you scan a QR code from another phone.
4.  Can you request coins via email or other android service?
5.  How long does it take to sync the blockchain?
6.  How much space does it take up on your phone?
7.  Does it calculate exchange rates properly?

If the app crashes you can send the report via email or another method if your phone allows it.  Reports of errors can also be posted in this topic.
To close the app, simply press the back button until you reach your home screen.  The app will close itself (there is no need for a disconnect option).
