I just recently got a Droid and I downloaded this app to it. I was able to receive bitcoins on it but now I'm having difficulty sending them back out. It appears to want to use a QR scanner to get the bitcoin address to send to. I used a qr code generator and input the text of an address but when I scan it, the app says it's "not a valid address". What am I doing wrong?
I think this may be a problem with the scanner in Bitcoin Android. Only a grey screen is displayed. It picks up the four corner dots and says not a valid bitcoin address. Has anyone else experienced this?

I have figured out why mine wasn't working.  The sleep mode was interupting the download.  If you are having this problem, plug your phone into it's charger, open the app, select 'refresh' from the settings menu, and then set the phone down near your wifi router and go to bed.  DO NOT hit the button to sleep the screen.  The app should have marched through the blockchain by morning, and daily updates only take a minute or so.  Also, after downloading the blockchain and finally seeing the coins that I sent it, I sent it more.  It took less time for the phone app to see the transaction than it took me to pull my finger from the mouse and pick up the phone.  Less than a second.  It was "pending" (not unconfirmed, I think that I like that description better) of course, but it knew that it was there.

if your phone sleeps automatically you can setup so that it stays on when charging which i dont think is the default

Settings>Applications>Development>Stay Awake

I've been waiting for this:

Hope the app will run.  If so, this could make a real difference.

Ok. So it looks like I'll have to manually get these btc of my phone. Does anyone know how that might be done. From what I read earlier in the thread, I may have to root my phone to get access to the file. That may be a problem. Any suggestions?

Bump

This thread needs to be moved out of the Newbies section.


I've been running bitcoin-android on my Droid 3 for a few days and it works great!  Just playing with small amounts still, but IMHO this has huge potential for being a driving catalyst for greater adoption.

Thanks very much for putting out this Android app. Looking forward to having a "slush fund" bitcoin wallet separate from the desktop wallet I'll want to encrypt and project from trojans and such...

Curious to know if the wallet.dat file on the android itself is obfuscated or encrypted? I'd hate to have it snooped out by some totally unrelated nefarious application and mailed back to the mothership...

With several bitcoin android clients available now, is there any good comparison table somewhere?

If I can avoid reading 6+ pages of thread on each and every implementation that would be good.

Does this one store the blockchain on the phone?

You should get Bitcoin Wallet on the Android Market
