Hello,

recently I played a bit with paper wallets and the way to spend the balance stored there.
Due to the lack of a webcam I used the android app from blockchain.info for scanning the private key.

The app offers to "sweep the balance" if you are scanning a new private key.
So far so good, but there is no way to tell where to send after you pressed OK.
In my case it used the first address in my wallet, which is only a watch-only one without the privkey!

Fortunately it is the one of my Qt-client, so I have that key, but what if I had some other adresses in my wallet?
what is the sense of sending to addresses where the privkey is unknown to blockchain wallet?

You have posted in the wrong forum. This is for the Bitcoin Wallet Android App.

I'd post in the "Alternative Clients" forum.

Don't watch addresses that you don't have the key to ?

I prefer this functionality because it allows me to quickly move coins to cold storage.
