Time for another *cough-semi-cough* weekly Mycelium feature demo, as well as update on what's going on behind the scenes!


Setting up a Watch-Only address in Mycelium:

First, make sure that you have enabled Expert Mode in Mycelium by going to Settings in the drop-down menu from the main screen, scrolling down to ADVANCED SETTINGS, and turning on the check box next to "Expert Mode."


This will enable key management in the section to the left of the main screen. To get to it, swipe left-to-right. You can set up a watch-only address in one of two ways.

If the address is not in your wallet yet:

After swiping to the KEYS section of the wallet, find and click the Add Key icon at the top right of the screen


If you have a paper wallet, hit "Scan" and scan only the public key. Or if you can copy/paste the key from your phone, select Clipboard to import it. This will import only the public key, creating a watch-only address. You can tell which addresses in your wallet have private (spendable) keys and which do not by the key icon next to the address. As you can see, the key imported in this example does not have that icon, and thus no bitcoins can be spent from it.


Whether you have Aggregated View enabled or not (more on that next time), simply highlighting the address in the list selects it as the default address, allowing you to receive payments to it (note the "Send" button is now missing).



If you already have a bitcoin address in your wallet, and want to make it a Watch-Only address:

(MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP OF THE PRIVATE KEY SOMEWHERE BEFORE PROCEEDING)

In the list of keys, find the address you wish to make Watch-Only, and highlight it. The bar at the top will change to blue, adding options such as Label and Archive. This also changes the functionality of the dropdown menu (the three vertical dots). Click the dropdown menu, and select Delete


In the menu that pops up, asking if you wish to delete the private key, turn on the checkbox for "Keep as read-only..."


Once you click Yes, and confirm, the address's private key will be deleted, and you will be left with only a watch-only address, which you can select as the default receiving address in the same way as in instructions above.



This option allows you to add addresses you wish to keep an eye on to keep track of balances, carry secure addresses to receive payments on that you don't want to get stolen, or even do things like allowing waiters and sales staff to accept payments from customers on multiple devices, without worrying about any of them having direct access to the received funds (yes, we're discussing about future POS options too).


Now, for the Things We're Working On Now updates:

The next release will include pricing sources from Bitstamp, BTC-E, Kraken, BTC China, Coinbase, and Bitpay. These have been added to the beta version, and are undergoing testing. Note, MtGox is now gone (apologies to those who will miss it). For now, we believe having it there will only confuse newbies.
Message signing has been added and is undergoing testing as well.
We've added Hebrew, French, and Korean translations.
Finally, exchange rates will be MUCH faster at showing up and refreshing, thanks to an upgrade to our servers on the back end.

Progress on Local Trader is also progressing nicely, with Jan and Andreas working diligently on it, and we still expect to have the beta version out some time within a week. HD Wallets (BIP32) is another major feature that has been heavily requested (not just in Mycelium), and last week Jan and Andreas spent most of one of the Berlin Conference days discussing how to implement and standardize it with the head developers of other major wallets. So, there is definite progress on this, though the most we can promise at this point is that it will be implemented "at some time." Hopefully soon.

As usual, if you want to see any features added, or have any concerns or questions, please let us know!

This may have been asked before.

How do I add the wallet address to my address book? - I like to top up the wallet directly from a paper wallet but I can't add my own address so I have to create a QR code of the address separately and scan that in order to top up the wallet.

(minor matter - I did this today and it's continuously showing 0 confirmations, though I can see the transaction on the blockchain - I'm assuming this is just a temporary server problem)

Edit - wallet now showing correct confirmations

It won't let you. When try to you add a wallet address to the address book (via the clipboard), there's this message:
Quote
This address is already part of your wallet. You cannot add it to your address book.

The next release will include pricing sources from Bitstamp, BTC-E, Kraken, BTC China, Coinbase, and Bitpay.

Bitpay is the only one of these doing some sort of average, right? There's more "averaging" services, like:


All of them offer different currencies and some (all?) of them are configurable regarding choice of exchanges.

I must say I am currently satisfied with the choice of exchanges and current plans.
But perhaps with all those "include this averaging service and include that averaging service" there is a room for yet another improvement (available in expert mode) and that is "custom price". It would work as weighted average over user-selected (checkboxed :-)) exchanges.

When you click Send and enter the Enter Recipient Address page you can click Address Book. In there you can select the My Addresses tab. This will give you a list of all your addresses including those without labels.


Mycelium let's you hold your private keys private.

I was already enjoying the watch-only function. I have a few paper wallets that I like to keep tabs on, and despite all those other "Watch your balance" apps and sites, I find Mycelium's to be the best, and it's already integrated with my wallet. But the ability to reorder the addresses in the list would be very nice, because they're kinda stuck in the order that you add them in. Alphabetical or handlebars to drag and rearrange would be very appreciated.

As Jan said, just select "Address Book" and swipe to the left for a full list of your own addresses. I didn't even know that feature was there before, since it doesn't look very obvious Tongue

Agreed, and it's on our to do list.

Yep - I didn't notice that. 
I think the problem is that at the point you scan your private key it's unclear what the next step is going to be.

Next release will feature Coinbase, BitPay and Kraken as exchange sources (in addition to Bitstamp, BTC China and BTC-E). MtGox however is going out.
Would you be upset if MtGox is no longer available?



I know it is kind of black humor, but ... Well, we have what we voted for in your little survey. Smiley

I'd just like to say how well this wallet is designed. I use it nearly everyday but I just now found out you can send USD equivilent to people instead. A handy feature, especially for in person transactions. Since you already have the QR generatir with the amount filled in for the URI, why not add more functionality with the other fields? (Label specifically). Also, when a QR or URI is clicked/scanned with a label, is it added or promoted to be added to the address book?

Awesome! If I had access to some coins I would try it out, but I suppose now would be a better time than ever to help with beta testing the message signing. How can I get beta again?

do two things:

to be eligible for testing you need to join the g+ group at

https://plus.google.com/communities/102264813364583686576

to get the latest bleeding edge versions go to

I downloaded the beta, and I can confirm that I did a test sign and verification on a Samsung Galaxy SIII mini.

A feature that should be implemented if it's not already, every month or other interval, mycelium should remind users to verify their backup again, and if they can't to create a new backup. This will ensure that users always have a working backup and won't forget to keep it up to date, even though mycelium reminds them when they have un-backed-up keys.

EDIT: Also, something after using the wallet for a while that I would find useful, a button to turn on the QR scanner right on the main balance screen instead of having to go into the send menu first. Not sure how others feel about this.

having the qr code scanner more accessible makes sense, has been suggested already. https://github.com/mycelium-com/wallet/issues/20

i am not so fond of that other suggestion, for many reasons.
