thank you jan!

...and please don't get hacked in the next time....
it seems to a virus or something like this travels around

 Cheesy

The beauty of this split wallet method is that even if the main BitcoinSpinner server is successfully hacked, this does not expose the users to theft.  This is what makes BitcoinSpinner different and why I use it so much these days.  Well done, Jan; well done, indeed.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Another great thing about Bitcoin Spinner is that its the only wallet app, that runs on older versions of Android. It runs perfectly on my Android 2.1

Thanks for a great piece of software Jan!

I think he was implying we're buying you out somehow, which is still sorta technically possible but pointless.

Soon enough we can announce what is actually happening Smiley

Isn't it obvious?
Bitinstant integration with Bitcoinspinner; go to Wallmart, deposit cash, see the bitcoins appear in Bitcoinspinner.
That's what I would go for anyway Smiley

Perhaps also the other way around, even, although I don't know what that would require technically. But I read you were working on it Wink

Now let's go local bitcoin traders!

Not really sure if this has been addresses but forum search didn't find anything (as it is usual) and I didn't read through all the posts. My preempted apologies if I'm dupping here.

Using p2pool I tried using a spinner address for the miner, which obviously works fine just like with any other valid address except BitcoinSpinner doesn't see the mined funds at all. First I thought it was the 120 block confirmation but now I it has been long confirmed and is still missing from the device. The funds are there, importing the address to a fat client sees the funds just fine.

Bug, RFE?

Thanks

The server side is based on BitcoinJ, which currently does not support coinbase transactions (the ones that generate newly minted coins). However, Jim Burton is working on that for MultiBit, and in the process of merging it into the main branch of BitcoinJ, where I guess it will be available in version 0.6. It will take some time before it is available in BitcoinSpinner, but it will eventually be supported. Thanks for bringing this up and good that you could export the private key to a fat client.

Thank you. I thought it could be something server side but was really hoping it was just the client not requesting all it needed... client side is always faster to resolve, if only because the test cases are much more limited.

I'll wait it up, it's not something I need just something I decided to try out.

Not really sure if this has been addresses but forum search didn't find anything (as it is usual)

the search box is broken most of the time and doesn't find anything.

try clicking "search" menu item and search from there. that usually works for me.

The thing to remember is that the search box works differently depending on where you are. If you search while you have a thread open, it only searches within that thread. I think the same applies to when you only search within a specific section instead of the whole forum. It still could use a lot of improvement though.

I have a minor bug when I run the app on my Matsunichi (Le Pan) TC970 tablet.  When I open it, I get a mostly blank (black) screen with just the BitcoinSpinner title bar at the top.  When I press the Back button, the main screen then appears.  Edit: this behaviour only occurs when switching to the app when it's running in the background, not when first launching.

Also, not a bug but a nice-to-have feature is landscape mode for tablets.  It's a nice app all around though, and I'm going to start using it instead of Andreas' Bitcoin Wallet app as the latter keeps locking up on me during blockchain downloads.

I have a question about how to do a wallet backup with this app.  When I choose backup wallet, and confirm the action, a QR code is generated.  Then I copy to clipboard.  However when I paste this anywhere to save it, it pastes as a numbers/letters..ect.  Now when I go restore from backup the app expects a QR code.  How do I restore from the backup if the code is not pasting as a QR code in the initial step of taking a backup?

Your help is appreciated.

Thanks!

There are basically two ways you can do backup/restore

1. Take a picture of the backup QR-code with a secondary camera and print it on paper.
2. Copy the text value of the QR-code to the clipboard, and use an external tool to generate a QR-code from it.

When doing a restore, just scan the QR-code.

I have always used option 1. Copying it to the clipboard makes it available to other apps on the same device.

I agree that this could be somewhat easier, and I have been considering to add the option of writing the QR-code as an image onto the SD card of the device. However, so far I have avoided this as it would require BitcoinSpinner to have privileges to write onto the SD card. I am very focused on limiting the required privileges to the bare minimum, right now BitcoinSpinner only requires:
  • Network Communication
  • View Network State

This makes it easier for me when I have to defend BitcoinSpinner from paranoid users claiming that it steals contacts or tampers with your SD card etc.

I am open to suggestions.

Thanks for this info.  It's exactly what I needed.  By the way this is a great app!

There is an update of bitcoinspinner in the android market today. Amongst the new feature, there's this one: "Buy bitcoin (using bitinstant)".

How awesome is that!

When restoring from backup, why not just have a text field as well and accept the same text that was generated when backing up?

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use! Sign up in seconds to try it!)

The idea that deflation causes hoarding (to any problematic degree) is a lie used to justify theft of value from your savings.
