This is a known issue.
It's a HUGE issue! The app became very useless for me within the last few weeks. It's very very slow and crashes a lot.

- Galaxy S4
- Cyanogenmod 11.0
- 11 Addresses
- 500+ Transactions

The limiting factor is not really the total number of transactions. What's more relevant is how many people are being paid by one transaction. A standard Bitcoin transaction only pays you. Mining and gambling payouts tend to pay thousands of people at once, and that is something we didn't really plan for. We're working on it.

I am using this android wallet now for a 2 months and it is surprisingly fast in transactions, almost instantly. That is also the question I have, how can it be so fast? Does it have special well-connected nodes in its list?

Now I also noticed how 'slow' my bitcoin core v0.9.1.0-g026a939-beta (64-bit) on my desktop pc (kubuntu) is when I send a transaction. It takes almost a minute before the transaction shows up on blockchain.info, where using the android wallet it shows up instantly. I already used addnode= command in the bitcoin.conf file to add five 'fallback' nodes from here https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Fallback_Nodes.

It always queries the DNS seeds at startup so it gets a list of online nodes very fast. Core tries old nodes for a while that may have gone offline.

It became even worse...I can't use the App at all because it crashes after 3 seconds. I can't send anything and it displays a wrong amount of BTC. I tried to restore the backup but I got an error in openssl because the file wasn't readable because of a bug in an older version of the app...so I had to download the latest version of the app, create another backup, which was pretty annoying because the app crashed all the time...and then, finally I was able to load the new backup file in openssl. But the output file is unreadable.....god damn...this is the most annoying wallet ever -.-

Edit: Sorry, I was pissed off...the wallet is annoying....but it's also the one withe the best unser interface...just...please fix these problems Wink
Edit2: I was able to import the backup into the Mycelium Wallet...a very stable Android Wallet btw...

Is this wallet still available? I can find Andreas Schildbach's apps on Google Play, all but the actual wallet.

I have the same question too. I see that there are few updates. Is this wallet ok to use? Besides having a problem when having lots of transactions is there any other big issue with this wallet?

Is there another decent/better Android Wallet?

Thank you. I haven't read anything about Android wallets and when I started my research the information seems to be a bit scarce.

I think Android and iOS should have their own separate sub-forums for an easier access to information because when you enter the Alternative clients forum I saw the Android word and went straight there.

This is not true.  I have this wallet and use it almost every day.  Great wallet.

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!

I've used this wallet for sometime as a day-to-day "hotwallet".  I do have a feature request, or possibly I just don't know how to use the wallet.  I have more than one address in the wallet, and sometimes I'd like to sort the btc received based on which address received it.  I haven't yet found a way to see which address received a payment without clicking "browse" and opening up a particular transation in a block exploring website.  Is there a way to sort "received" based on address?  Or just to show, for each received, which address received it?

I did not implement anything like this. Generally it is not recommended to manage addresses manually.

Hmm, I thought that was one of the main reasons you might provide "names" for addresses.  If I give you an address to pay me on and I name it "payments_from_AS" then if I want to see how much you've paid me or if you've paid me recently, I want some way to see only the payments to this address, right?  What other reason do we have for "naming" addresses in receiving addresses?

That's right, it used to be like this. It works because most clients still reuse addresses (including Bitcoin Wallet). In future, addresses will not be reused, so there is no point in labeling them.

Information about who and for what you paid will be attached to the transactions themselves, or in the far future payment objects that bundle 1..n transactions.

I'm sure when we're at that point there will be ways to search, e.g. for payments to a specific merchant.

I think you're actually saying that "it is still like this" but that you predict a future in which case addresses will not be resused. It seems like for the present, in which we can label addresses in our bitcoin wallets (including the android Bitcoin Wallet), it would be useful to be able to sort our list of "received" based on which address did the receiving.  We already have the labels and we already have a list of received, we're really just missing the sort functionality.  In bitcoind there's a command to list all received by address.  Is there no easy correllary in bitcoinj?

Speaking of the future, it seems like as long as people want an offline node for "cold storage" of funds, they'll be some folks reusing addresses, right?

Thanks for the wonderful software, by the way! For the moment, I can click on each received transaction one at a time and see which address received it by looking it up in a blockchain explorer.    So I can eventually tell which address received a particular transaction listed in the wallet, it's just a little annoying to have to go to a web-browser for this.

Are you sure there's no easy way to modify Bitcoin Wallet to allow us to see which address received a particular transaction?

Can you elaborate?

What are you talking about?  I've been using this bitcoin wallet for nearly 1.5 years, I have no problems with it.  I'm running android 4.4 (there is no newer android at the moment).

I'm talking about the fact that we can and name multiple addresses but we can't sort transactions based on which addresses were involved.  It's a feature request, not a bug report.

Greetings,

  Hopefully im in the right place..

  I have a minor situation on my hand.

  Maybe the community can help a young fellow out.

 Some how i managed to send Mastercoins to my andreas btc App

On my android smartphone but i dont have a SD card slot on my phone.

 Ive contacted the MasterCoin team about the matter and this the reply:

 Yes, your private key is inside the app.
 I downloaded and set the app up it does
 allow you to backup/export your private keys
 via email or drop box unfortunately it looks like
it forces encryption on the backup. I am not aware
if we can decrypt the encrypted backup but will try to
 look into it.

  Contact developer to determine how to export an unencrypted private key.

Maybe the DEV can PM... dont wont to take up to much of your time.

Regards
