A BIP-0032 compatible Hierarchical Deterministic Groestlcoin Wallet

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.
