Android wallet with notes?
Hey boys and squirrels.
I'm looking for a wallet that would allow me to write personal notes to each transaction. For example if I send Bob 1 BTC as a gift, I would like to add "gift to Bob" in my list of transactions so I can recall later on what specific transactions were all about.
Is there such a wallet?

Actually there is a feature on electrum wallet that you can add an description on the transaction that you are making or taking in which you can add the description that you like before you send the money or bitcoin to the other wallet, but it is just a choice in which you can also denied it if you are not comfortable on putting a description to the transactions that you will do, it is just a matter that there is an additional features whenever you are making a transaction.



BIG WINNER!

You can have it on mycelium as well aside from electrum, the different is you need to make a transaction first before you can add a label on the Transactions tab unlike on electrum that you can add description/note/label right before you make the transaction. Just tap that icon beside Show details and a modal like will appear where you can add the note.




Also, blockstream green wallet can do it as well.

Wow!

I was not aware of it. I have been using Mycelium wallet for the last six month and did get confused a lot of time while trying to identify the transaction. Just now added few labels after you showed it in the picture.

They get added as a label below the transaction details. This does help you when you are tallying them on an excel sheet. Thanks for sharing.

I would suggest trying Bluewallet, you can leave notes and it's also a very good wallet to experiment with the lightning network. And If you are interested in a multi-coin wallet with a great UI, there is Exodus (closed source).

Good that you mentioned the code is closed source, and that's one of two reasons why I don't use Exodus--the other reason is that I can't stand the GUI for some reason.  

Anyway, there's a obvious difference between being able to label transactions on your own end and sending a note to a recipient.  Are you guys saying there's an option to do the latter with these examples?  

I haven't used an Android wallet in quite a while, but I don't remember that ever being an option (though I wouldn't have used it anyway).  Nor do I think I can send notes with any desktop wallet like Electrum or a hardware one like a Ledger.

Edit:

For example if I send Bob 1 BTC as a gift, I would like to add "gift to Bob" in my list of transactions so I can recall later on what specific transactions were all about.
Oh crap, I misread this the first time around.  So I'm assuming there really isn't a wallet that lets you send a note to someone on the receiving end of a transaction, right?

No, the label/note is only stored on your device. If you only backup your seed/mnemonic words, the label/note will be gone.

As far as I know, there isn't; at least for non-custodial wallets. This feature could easily be implemented by a centralized service though I presume. Having such note feature on-chain with Bitcoin will probably use too much unnecessary block space(feel free to correct me, more-technologically-literate people).

Technically it's possible with OP_RETURN, but without standard which used by many wallet and 80 byte size limit, i doubt we'll see such feature.

I already was using Blue on Android. And I just checked again. If there is a way to leave a note, I can't find it.

You can't add a note/label to the transactions you received, but for sending, there should be a "note to self" textbox just under the address field.

Yeah, I get it now. Wirh Blue I can add a label to an outgoing payment. But it can only be done with outgoing payments, and only while sending. I'd like to be able to edit or add labels to all my transactions, incoming and outgoing.
I just switched to Electrum and it does that very well. Though Electrum is rather limited with very few other features and options.

So far, my favorite wallet is Samurai.  It's built on privacy, it allows you to send and receive various options of legacy and Segwit payments, and I like the GUI.
But I wish Samurai would enable labels like Electrum, be LN compatible, and have an option for fiat currency display.

They intentionally remove feature to show fiat exchange display[1]. They still evaluate whether to support LN[2], but there's no response for transaction/address labeling feature[3]

Yes, I was already aware of that. That's what they explained to me on their Telegram chat. And I think it's rather stupid to try to force you and I to use our coin the way they think is acceptable. And they do this by actually regressing and removing features.
Frankly, I was flabbergasted when they explained this is how they want me to think of Bitcoin, and that they are actually removing a popular feature to attempt to shoe horn people into their way of thinking.

I hodl Bitcoin because I think it's sound money, because I believe it's part of the revolution against banksters and government. And I also hodl as part of my investment portfolio. But the Samurai team decided that it's unacceptable that any of their users can also use Bitcoin as an investment?

[/quote]

That's new to me. About 2 months ago, I was told on Telegram that the devs are not considering, ever, to add support for LN. Which is hard to understand since LN payments are far more anonymous than on chain ones.
But if they are considering LN support now, all the better!

Edit 1: the link you provided has not been updated since 2018. And I haven't found anything else since 2018. However Samurai recently partnered with Nodl. Still, there seem to be no recent efforts made to have Samurai support of LN.

Edit 2: I contacted Samurai on Telegram. Here is my post:

Hey guys. I just read this: https://github.com/Samourai-Wallet/samourai-wallet-android/issues/92
Apparently Samurai devs were considering LN support back in 2018. But no recent update. And Samurai recently partnered with Nodl. Have Samurai devs abandoned LN support? Or is interest in LN revived with Nodl partnership?

And here is their reply:

Almost certainly not happening at this point.

I think the real question is what Bitcoin wallets don't have that transaction note functionality in there apps? Because even custodial wallets (3rd party wallets) like Coinbase and Freewallet have one, it's like a basic feature that they include that comes in all Bitcoin transactions we have so I don't think that even 3rd party wallets are trying to exclude it in their services. The only wallets that I can think of right now that don't have one are found in crypto exchanges which I don't think you can really count as a wallet.

Well, I probably tried over a dozen wallets on my Android platform. And so far, the suggested Electrum is the only one that has that feature.

Samurai doesn't have it, neither does Blue, BRD, and a few others I can't recall right now.
