Jouke, can you report bugs in the issue tracker?

Otherwise, chances are that they get lost in the noise.

I released version 2.37, answering to lots of your constructive feedback. Those of you who experienced problems should try out this version.

A merry christmas to each of you! It has been terrific year for Bitcoin, thanks to the community.

I'll be at the 29c3 in Hamburg. If anyone cares to meet in person, please drop me a mail.

So I'm confused, is there currently a plan to make this work more like the satoshi client so you can spend your change with 0 confirmations? I'd like to use this to show my friends satoshidice, but it doesn't work very well when you have to wait for a new block after each bet.  Undecided

I believe this question is addressed here:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4384.msg1329542#msg1329542

But maybe not.  I am confused as to whether the above post applies to the spending of the change or not.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

Making change spendable is already done in MultiBit and doing it in bitcoinj (so Bitcoin Wallet can benefit) is pretty high up my todo list.

I think i asked this a long time ago also, but can we expect any security features any time soon? like wallet encryption or just a password/PIN requirement before sending funds?

Once Jim completes his wallet encryption work for MultiBit and syncs it with bitcoinj, it can be integrated into the Android wallet. So the answer is it's being worked on, but don't expect it soon.

That said, you can encrypt your Android phone and put a screen lock on it. In the absence of local root exploits, this is equivalent.

Getting the MultiBit encryption work into bitcoinj is my main priority now.

Today I pushed version 2.39 to Google Play and to the downloads page. It does a much better job at describing transaction confidence states, and it is also based on the recently released bitcoinj 0.6.1.

I recommend to update as soon as you can.

Edit: I did not see the thread about spending your own change before posting this. Sorry!

Thanks for the excellent work! I really enjoy using this client.

It would be nice however to be able to spend your own change. I'm using version 2.39_test right now on a galaxy nexus ( google phone ) with android version 4.1.1. I sent 50 BTC (testnet) in one transaction to my android wallet. I can only send 1 transaction per block right now because all of my bitcoins are blocked as change Smiley Of course, I can send multiple transactions to my android wallet so that not all coins are used as inputs of a new transaction.

I know this issue has been raised here, just adding my own experience. Otherwise, great job!

Cheers,

Strange...my android phone today suddenly said "Bitcoin: Package is invalid". It usually autoupdates in the morning after I turn it on, so it may have happened then. When clicking on the alert, it shortly shown Play store with BitcoinWallet info, but Play app immediately crashed with "No connection".

On second attempt Play launched and I was able to update the Bitcoin Wallet. All seems ok now, so I don't really have anything to report, just wonder, was it attack? Or just botched update?

Good that i keep only pocket change there (if 1BTC is to be considered pocket change haha).

When updating, there is a short time where the app is in an undefined state: The app directory is there (including the app data) and the launcher knows about the app, but the app itself is uninstalled. If you try to start the app in this state, you'll get errors (depending on the launcher).

"Package is invalid" sounds like a problem with the Play Store app. It is being updated to a new version at the moment, it's possible the glitch was related to that.

Had an issue on 3.0 with screen rotation when scanning QR codes, a crash error pops up but I was a long way from sober and the reporting tool confused the hell out of me.

If you can reproduce that, I'd be happy if you tell me the email you used for reporting and if you open an issue in the tracker.

Couple of suggestions. Show fiat value when entering amounts and/or allow fiat values to be entered.

Already implemented since two years. It's hidden behind the edit button on each amount field. Was going to change it to inline (have code for that on a branch), but I am not convinced its currently the right thing to do.

Big drunken idiot proof buttons for send and receive, address book, QR or enter address on next send screen,

There not a lot of space for big buttons. Can you separate this out a bit?

Quote
last amounts and labels on receive screen etc.

Whats the receive screen? What does last amount mean?

A lot of folks are asking me about Bitcoin and nearly all of them have android phones, so far 3 have bought coins off me there and then. The blockchain updating was a bit of an irritation to them but it was more or less enough time for a cup of coffee so not bad.

Version 3.0 will do away with initial blockchain download. You can try already:

Changing the pencil icon to a $ sign would help with discoverability a lot. I've been encouraging Andreas to hide the fee widget behind an advanced button or something, that would free up some space to make both fiat and btc equal partners on the screen.

$ is a nice idea, however has got the problem it does not work so well for Euro and other currencies.

I agree that the fee field has to go, but think that first proper fee rules need to be implemented so that users have no need to adjust.

The current fee should always be high enough, I think.

I think $ communicates the idea of "other currency" pretty well, even if it's not technically accurate for the currency you selected. BTW, it's also still not really obvious how to change that currency, imo. There's no visible indication you can tap the balance.

Is there a way to export the private key unencrypted? I need to see it, so I can import it in another client, like the desktop clients. Also, is there a way to import your own private key?

I used Titanium Backup to import keys in MultiBit, but you need to be root.
Make a backup of Bitcoin Wallet, look for the archive
de.schildbach.wallet-SOME_DATE_HERE.tgz
open it, look for data/data/de.schildbach.wallet/./files/key-backup-base58

Moving private keys around is a discouraged use-case. There is a lot of thing that can go terribly wrong.

That said, you cannot export unencrypted because on Android there is no shared storage you can trust. But you can export encrypted and decrypt using openssl, see this readme:

http://bitcoin-wallet.googlecode.com/git/wallet/README

Importing keys is also possible.

If you're root, you can just as well pull this file from the device directly, without taking the Titanium detour.
