I actually enjoy your application, very useful.
As we discussed, did you look into also tracking the account ledger, for example to show received asset dividends which are not represented as incoming transaction ?
Keep up the good work !

Looks great! :)

I don't think there is a decent wallet anymore for android to send nxt, last I tried mynxt.info android wallet it still needed the old public id or something and was big hassle.

Great to see new apps for android being developed! :)

Checking asset dividends sounds good, adding to TODO list. Regarding the account ledger - as I said earlier - I don;t like that, because it's not implemented through all server versions an in that case you need to have two implementations of checking account balance.

Actually what would be really cool is if you can implement offline transaction signing for Android. This is already implemented in the client wallet but requires an offline laptop with camera so not very useful. If you can make this work on Android then we can run it on low end Android phones or tablets that would be much better.

Basically, when you submit a transaction from the online wallet you choose the "Do Not Sign" option.
You then read the unsigned bytes to the phone by scanning the QR code or receive the unsigned JSON somehow (Skype message, What's up, SMS, NFC, Bluetooth, NXTTY, email) sign the transaction on the phone using the account passphrase  (the phone is offline of course) and send back signed bytes using QR code or signed JSON (somehow) to the online wallet which will then broadcast the transaction.
I think this is relatively simple to implement once you got all the Android environment setup and know how to read and generate QR codes which I know you do.

A good idea and necessary application.

It is need a possibility of deleting account and adding account manually, not only through the QR-code.
Also, it does not always correctly updated balance index (green numbers) after the 1440 confirmations. Can you make a manual force update with pull down?


–°ould you make a similar application for Horizon coins?
I think the developers and the comunity are very interested in Android applications for Horizon

This sounds as an idea for another application - wallet watcher is about simplicity and security - no need to insert your passphrase anywhere. Adding to app-TODO list, thanks :).

Deleting account will be added in next version, I think it was you who rated app on gPlay, I already answered there. I will look into that non updating balance, also fore refresh with pull down is planned future release ;).

I am afraid I can't do it for every coin, I simply have no capacity for that - I also have to earn some money to buy food and stuff :D

Hey Shmoula

Congrats, nice, simple and clean app. I Like it.
Suggestions for further improvements:
* Add a possibility to name the accounts manually, I know, account names on the blockchain are shown automatically, but it would be nice to name untaged accounts, locally on the device only.
* I'm not sure if the swipe to left for additional options is very intuitive. Yes, you show a hint in the beginning, but If you miss that, you won't find this "hidden functionality". Maybe a long-press context menu is better?
* The arrow at the top left on the main page does not make sense. On Android you don't need a special button to close the app. On the detail page of an account this button is very good, and works as expected to go back one page, but on the main page it is confusing.

Hey cc001, thanks for trying it out and many thanks for your feedback!! Let's look at it:

I've been thinking about that, so if it's not just me, I'll add that!

I'm not sure if the swipe to left for additional options is very intuitive. Yes, you show a hint in the beginning, but If you miss that, you won't find this "hidden functionality". Maybe a long-press context menu is better?

Just yesterday I've been reading an article about UX mistakes and this one was one of them. To choose context menu or swipe was long brainstorm, before implementing that functionality. Many people just don't know about long tap, many does not know about swipe (mainly those without ios or tinder). So this is the topic I'm thinking about since yesterday again :). Maybe the best solution will be to add animation, which "bounces" all rows to reveal that button for a second on every enter that screen with list? What do you think? I want it as much intuitive as possible!

Yes, you are right! That button must go!
