It would be nice if we had an option to keep it running in the background.
I noticed it shuts down whenever the app doesn't have focus anymore.

Receiving coins while app is closed is definately on my roadmap. However, it's not easy to do this without wrecking the battery.

It shuts down when all app activities are closed, which means using the back key. If you just send it to the background (home key), it should stay active.

You might want to consider using Google's C2DM service for this. I am planning on hosting a modified blockexplorer fork to allow my Android app to get asynchronously notified when a payment is made to one of a set of addresses.  I open source all my stuff so if I get it working you're free to fork it for C2DM notifications to your app too.

I really like this app, great work!

Yesterday i ran into a problem, starting the android client. It just started syncing the block chain as usual and then crashed without any interaction.

I just started to generate bitcoins from mining via eligius mining pool. This "generated" payout from this pool thems to kill the Android Bitcoin Client.

If Goonie is around, this is the address from my wallet: http://blockexplorer.com/address/1JRH4EnxLVcMGxx951pm9jApJ7cYH3oSvV

Just check the last transaction.

At this time, those bitcoins seem to be lost, because i can't access them anymore. Hopefully, i will wait for an update or a possibilty to extract the wallet.dat.

Can you send me the crash report? I'll have a look into it.

Sure, just sent the Google Crash report. I hope you can access over the android developer console.

Thanks for support!

Unfortunately, I cannot isolate single Google Crash Reports, because they are highly anonymous. Can you sent a report as generated by the app itself, when starting again?

That crash with "Generation" transactions is now fixed in Version 1.31 of Bitcoin Wallet.

Hi Goonie.

Firstly, amazing app. Thanks!

I am having an issue, however, that I hope you can help me with.

I made a transaction approximately 30 hours ago which is simply hanging in the app. It is not showing in blockexplorer and has not arrived at the recipient's address. It just shows as grey (unconfirmed) in the app but has been deducted from my balance.

Is there a way to either force it to resend or to reclaim the coins?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Did you assign a fee?

You can reset transactions + blockchain in Options Menu -> About. The app will need to re-download the blockchain afterwards, this will take some time.

No fee.

I did the reset and it just came up as a hung transaction again. If I delete the app and redownload it will my wallet file still be there?

Nevermind. Transactions came up fairly quickly but it took several more hours to update the blockchain. While that hung transaction still showed, my balance in the end was restored. I sent the coins again and they went through just fine.

Thanks!

The minimum recommended fee is BTC 0.0005. Below that, all the other nodes might reject your transaction, which is what is happening in your case.

No. You should read the safety notes.

Is the wallet stored unencrypted on the SD card?

If so, that would be pretty dangerous, since any app with access to the SD card can read any of it.

"Hey; try this game.  It stores its graphics on the SD card and publishes scores on the internet. (and reads and copies bitcoin wallets to an anonymous server in Russia)"

Of course it isn't.

The location of the wallet is documented in the README:

http://code.google.com/p/bitcoin-wallet/source/browse/trunk/README

(No, this isn't wallet.dat format!)

Good.  But it's not such a daft question.  Your competitor wallet on android was/is storing the unencrypted wallet in the cloud.  Gulp.

I tried to send with no fee but the send button was grayed out so I couldn't click it...

So it's forcing me to set a fee, but I was able to set it to 0.00000001 and send it successfully.

I've noticed that too. It doesn't require non-zero value, simply a value. Zero works fine.

Not for me. Zero wouldn't work fine, the SEND button is still grayed out, which is why I had to enter 0.00000001 instead.

Nevermind, I see you are correct.
