I downloaded HIVE and started using it based on your simplified and logical permissions.  I don't like how my balance is truncated by the icons to the right.  It's a minor thing but I think in satoshi now and I'd like to see my entire balance even if displayed at BTC.

You are right, the balance display code needs to better handle larger numbers. It's on my list of things to improve.

Also, is there a mistake on the wiki for android hive?  It says the transaction fee is set at .001 bitcoins, do you mean .0001?
https://github.com/hivewallet/hive-android/wiki/FAQ#how-much-do-you-charge-for-every-transaction

Good catch, that was indeed a mistake. I just fixed it, thanks!

What is the source for the USD exchange rate on the wallet?  The USD rate always seems to be a bit below the coindesk rate.

Thanks again for a nice app!

We are currently using the same source as Andreas Schildbach's wallet, which is a 24 hour average from https://bitcoinaverage.com/ . We are planning of switching to something more real time though, so I think that gap should go away then.

Thanks again for a nice app!

Thanks, glad you like it!

We're pleased to announce, that Hive is now also available for Android in a beta version.

Hive Android is a standalone Bitcoin wallet. No external server or cloud service needed - the keys to your bitcoins are stored on your device.

      

Features

- Initiate transactions in various ways:
  * Scan a QR code
  * Click Bitcoin links
  * Touch-to-pay via NFC
- Support for payment protocol (BIP70) for increased security, reliability and speed in making payments
- Hive app store offers close integration with the rest of the Bitcoin ecosystem. Apps available for LocalBitcoins.com, Bitstamp, piiko and others.
- Works offline: Stores transactions for later sending or transmits them via Bluetooth
- Amounts displayed in BTC, mBTC or µBTC with exchange rate info alongside
- Add contacts based on your address book (information from your address book is solely used for the autocomplete feature - no address book data ever leaves your device)
- Notifications for incoming payments
- Encrypted backups

Technical details: Under the hood, this wallet is a fork of the "Bitcoin wallet for Android" by Andreas Schildbach. This means it's also a SPV wallet based on bitcoinj. The software is licensed as GPLv3 and the source code is available at https://github.com/hivewallet/hive-android/ .

This software is beta! That said, the beta tag applies mainly to the look and feel of the app, which will be overhauled before the first official release to better fit the overall Hive brand. We are building on top of a very mature codebase, so while bugs can never be ruled out, we feel that security-wise this app is in very good shape and will protect your coins adequately.

Frequently asked questions

Q: Is Hive Android open source?
A: Yes! The GPL-licensed code is available on GitHub.

Q: Is Hive Android available in languages other than English?
A: Not yet, but we are working on localization support. Translators will be able to help us via Transifex once that is ready. Your help in translating Hive is much appreciated!

Q: Is it really safe for novices to use, right now?
A: We think so, and we are using it on a day-to-day basis with real Bitcoin ourselves.

Q: How can I build an app for Hive?
A: Please see this forum post.

Q: Will you support Windows or Linux?
A: Not unless an exceptional developer steps up. Please contact us if you have the skills and would like to be involved!

Q: Will you support iOS?
A: Native iOS support is probably off the table due to Apple's general despotism. Try hive-js for an alternative.

Q: How do you make money?
A: Our plan is to take very small fees for transactions that happen within non-charity apps in the App Platform. At present this is not implemented.

Hi!
Do you intend to support Namecoin also ?

I wish to know if the transaction fee is taken from the amount I'm sending or from the amount remaining in the wallet.
For example, let's say I have 1.5 btc in the wallet.
If I input to send 1 btc, will 1 btc or 0.9999 btc be delivered?

And what if I input 1.5 btc (i.e. the total amount of the wallet)?
Thanks

It's taken from the remaining funds in your wallet. So when you enter 1 BTC, then 1 BTC will reach the recipient and your balance will be reduced by 1 BTC + transaction fees.

And what if I input 1.5 btc (i.e. the total amount of the wallet)?
Thanks

The send screen will then inform you, that you do not have enough funds to complete the transaction (since the transactions fee cannot be paid). It will offer to send "everything" instead, which will set the amount to "all funds in the wallet - required transaction fee".
