[Android NXTWallet] Second beta version 2.0.2
« on: July 16, 2014, 03:59:10 pm »

Here's the second beta version of my Android NXT Wallet.

The project is still closed source and the app works against the NXT mainnet.

There is no way to add an account secret for an existing account. Only new wallet accounts are created with the account secret generated by the app. If you transfer NXT into your wallet account to test the app, please limit it to small amounts (<100 NXT).

Also, please use the backup function, keep the the encryption password safe and verify your backup!


If you've installed a previous version, please completely uninstall it before installing this one.

Download

Download link: NXTWallet_v2.0.2.apk

SHA256 checksum: 1A19275B18ADF2374A0A40D7369727F8BF372E9DDFFBCD6265C1EF1FC88F2CEC

QR code for the download link:



Virustotal scan: https://www.virustotal.com/de/file/1a19275b18adf2374a0a40d7369727f8bf372e9ddffbcd6265c1ef1fc88f2cec/analysis/1405528699/

Changes for v2.0.2
* Fixed a startup problem

Changes for v2.0.1
* Implemented account creation
* Implemented encrypted backup and verify/restore through QR codes
* Implemented sending NXT
* Implemented "Request NXT" using a QR code
* Data is now saved in the app home path (not readable for other apps); Log files and encrypted backups go to \Download\NXTWallet\
* QR Droid is now supported in addition to the ZXing Barcode scanner
* Tapping below a list entry now does not open the currently selected item
* After adding a new account its balance is now updated faster
* Made the notifications consistent  and better to read (one notification for every account showing the balance difference since last time app was in foreground)
* Added a splash screen. Unfortunetely I have to show two splash screens with a small flicker in-between for technical reasons. I've tried to make the problem a feature and made a monochrome->colored effect. The duration for the b/w splash screen won't change. The duration the blueish splash screen will get shorter over the next releases.
* The app picks a public node address to connect to only once now and uses this as long as it is reachable.
* Made deleting accounts and contacts a bit more intuitive
* Correctly handing balance fetching for unknown accounts now
* Significantly reduced the amount of transfered data (in/out byte counters are on the debug page)
* Log files older than 7 days are now deleted from \Download\NXTWallet\log
* Remove log viewer for performance reasons
* Implemented warning message for backups/verifies/reading of security notes
* Implemented retrieval of NXT/USD, NXT/EUR and NXT/BTC prices and display of there currencies




Some further hints and comments (PLEASE READ):
* If you want to test, please enter yourself and your device at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bcsi6ytEXzdNlDWEbWP4Kl0CLeX55DSYL6xA28TU9Wc/edit?usp=sharing
* For the project roadmap, please check https://nxtforum.org/nxt-wallet-for-android/project-roadmap/
* To install the apk package you need to allow installation from unknown sources: http://www.teamandroid.com/2012/04/01/how-to-enable-installing-third-party-apps-in-android-phones/
* This is supposed to be a mainstream app. The goal is that your mother and grandfather can use it. If you are interested in seeing the signatureHash of an alias assignment transactions, this is app is probably not for you.
* The GUI design is not finished. Especially the design of the transaction and message list is currently more like a stub. These will be prettified later.
* For QR code scanning you need to have the ZXing Barcode Scanner app installed (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.zxing.client.android)
* I've developed against a screen resolution of devices like the Nexus 4/5, S4 or HTC One. I still need to handle the layout for devices that have significantly lower screen resolutions. Also, it looks kind of horrible on tablet devices.
* Payments and messages (technically transactions) are not saved between runs for debugging purposes. I will likely change that later.
* The app will check if Internet is available and if so, connect to a public API node in intervals. If you don't exit or kill the app, it will download every 15 minute in the background. Please keep an eye on your allowed bandwith when you don't have wifi. When in background, notifications about balance changes and messages will go to the Android notification center; when in foreground toast messages are shown
* Some hints and tips:
        You can tap the icon on the drawer to get connection infos.
        If you don't give an account a name, it will use the account name from the blockchain (if one is set). For contacts you always have to enter an account name.
        Tap the QR code to enlarge it.
        The QR codes generated and recognized are in deep link format: "nxt://address/NXT-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXX". Generate QR codes here: https://www.the-qrcode-generator.com/

The Wallet does not start if the /Download/NXTWallet directory does not exist. I removed it manually (renamed it, to be precise) after uninstalling the previous version, because you told to uninstall completely before installing the new test version. The new version does not create that directory. After restoring that directory, the wallet starts.

I will test the rest later

Bug report is on spot. Thanks!  Will fix and release 2.0.2 within an hour or so.

 I requested a payment. There is no QR code generated which could be scanned. Also I can't see any QR codes in the app at all. Device: Huawei Mate  :'(

Also i miss the refresh button?! Is it needed? or will i receive any notification that i have received a payment via push?

My "Back" button doesnt work. I have to click on the back button within the app. Maybe it can be fixed?

Try this: long tap on the app icon, app details, then force close. Then start the app again.

My my very slick. :) one suggestion. When I open the menu top right corner I have to click the same button again to close it. Is it possible to make it so clicking any where outside the menu box closes it? Will this app eventually support AE? Nice job very cool app.

martismartis reported previously that this happens on his Android TV stick. It might really be device dependant problem.

To pinpoint this: Create a backup of the wallet through the menu at the top right of the Dashboard. Then open the created *.png file located at /Download/NXTWallet/backups/  in an image viewer. Do you see the QR code?

Also i miss the refresh button?! Is it needed? or will i receive any notification that i have received a payment via push?

Refresh happens every 30 seconds when the app is in foreground, every 15 minutes  when it is in background and whenever the app goes from background to foreground.

Is this limited to certain screens or does it happen on all screens of the app?

I've put that on my todo list now.

It's not on the roadmap (https://nxtforum.org/nxt-wallet-for-android/project-roadmap/) and I don't plan beyond that right now.

Just the original download in there, which is on the SD card. No log files.

Hm... is your Android rooted, so you can get access to the Android log files?

Also, could you list yourself in the testers sheet please? https://nxtforum.org/nxt-wallet-for-android/(androidwallet)-beta-testers-wanted/

EDIT: One more idea: Try to create the directory /Download/NXTWallet/log manually and try to start the app again.

Updated doc. Seems i have an old version these days. Did try to manually update, but returns latest/current version for phone.

Can you direct me to something better than Astro to navigate?

In my opinion there still is a big issue with performance in several aspects:
* The startup still takes about 8 seconds on a Nexus 5!! Yes, you have some kind of splash screen, but that doesn't make it much better. What does take so much time? It should start immediately. There is no fancy graphics, no intense CPU work to do, nothing special that would need so much time to start. Do you know the Bitcoin Wallet from Andreas Schildbach? It takes less than a second to start.
* After every start it takes a lot of time to show all the payments from one accounts (I guess it would be the same with the messages..?). I assume you read it after every start from the blockchain again? (I'm just guessing...) Why not store it in the datebase once the blockchain was read? It is a very bad user experience to wait that long. Again, Andreas Schildbachs wallet shows all payments immediately...

Sometimes the app doesn't startup properly and hangs on a black screen.

Don't get me wrong, I like the app, but as an experienced Android user, nothing is more annoying (and gives a bad user experience) than slow apps and long waiting times. And I'm sure, your wallet could be very fast, because you don't have to do work that needs a lot of cpu power (except parsing new blocks, which should not happen very often) especially on powerful devices.

So, is that only a problem of the early beta stage or will it stay this way also in the official version?

Is it possible that you are German?  ::)

I came up with a couple of answers:

1.) I've just started the NXT Wallet on Windows 7 and it took 3 minutes until it asked for my account secret. => It is 22 times faster to do a payment with my Android NXT wallet!

2.) Comparing with Andreas Schildbach's bitcoin wallet: You loose 8 seconds, put NXT block time is 2 minutes instead of 10, so payments with my NXT Android wallet on average will confirm 4,68 time faster than with the bitcoin wallet! And that is even without TF being implemented...

3.) Overall user experience is what will count. I have an app that I use at least once a day and that takes 30-45 seconds to start. I do it, because it is worth the wait. If you disagree, I urge you to write your own Android wallet! If you run a fundraising, I'm in with 2000 NXT. (Seriously.)

So, is that only a problem of the early beta stage or will it stay this way also in the official version?

Regarding, the transactions not being saved between runs, this is for debugging purposes and will change with the next beta.

Regarding startup time of the app: It will stay like this or even get worse.

Marcus

I don't want do code a wallet by myself, I'm trying to help to improve yours. I know you have a lot of experience with the blockchain and sending and receiving transactions, which I don't have at all. It seems to me though, that you don't have a lot of experience with coding Android apps, have you? And that's where I'm trying to help you a little bit.

Of course paying with NXT is much faster than with BTC because of the faster blockchain. What I try to say is, that the app itself (independent from Nxt or BTC or Dogecoin or whatever), could be coded in a way that makes it much faster and smoother. Even heavy apps like GPS Navigation, Google Maps, Google+, Calendars, Games, File managers, etc... don't take more than 1-2 seconds to start. Btw: what app do you use that takes 40 sec. to start??? Of course it needs some time to download and parse the blockchain, but that is no reason to need that much time to start, that can happen in the background after the app started.

Yes, even with the 8 sec. start, paying with NXT is faster than paying with Andreas BTC wallet. But why shouldn't we try to combine the advantages of both? having 1 sec to start and only 2 min to pay? I don't like the argument "we are already faster than the other, we don't have to think about being even faster..." Yes, maybe it is 22 times faster than the windows wallet, but why not being 180 times faster, if it is possible?? We should be as good as it gets, not only a bit better than others. And we could be absolutely much better than every wallet out there right now!!

Good to hear that you store the transactions, so that is no issue.
Only the start-up-time left ;)
