It's still not as good as a traditional hardware wallet (Ledger, Trezor, KeepKey...), but it's definitely a step in the right direction. I'm still not sure how exactly this will work out, but looks like a phishing website still can put their own QR code on the user's page, making him connect his wallet on the hacker's end.

Also, it's only an android/iOS app. So there are no real downsides on trying it out (you don't have to buy anything).

Probably the app double check the address, and only allows pairing with myetherwallet.com
