A dual currency display option would be nice - like the one at EasyWallet.org. It eliminates the need for mental math currency conversions. Glad to see you are devoting resources to keep this alive. As I've mentioned elsewhere, banner ads and/or corporate sponsorship seem like good revenue models.
We're working on alternate designs for Instawallet, dual-currency display will be part of it.

Davout, if I understand it correctly, you are also developing the Paytunia ewallet. Out of curiosity, can you explain your motivation for developing two ewallets simultaneously? Would InstaWallet be your "simple" product and Paytunia be your "deluxe" product?
Both are deluxe Smiley

Paytunia is a more integrated approach, it integrates seamlessly with Bitcoin-Central.net, it gives you full account history and a bunch of additional features. It is mostly intended for long to medium term storage of funds, and mobile usage through the Android and iPhone app.

Instawallet is focused on "just working", you visit it, *boom* you have a wallet, you can access it on the go with FriendlyPay (released on the AppStore, and soon on Google Play). It gives instant gratification, you send funds to it, it's updated immediately with a comforting cash-register sound. It's targeted to newcomers, and paranoid advanced users (it's very lightweight, making it perfectly suitable for Tor access).

The big plan is to integrate these tools (and others to come) very tightly in order to provide a seamless experience for anyone who want to do business with Bitcoins or keep them as investment. There's gonna be more on all this soon Smiley

May I ask you to put at least the information that can be found in this thread also on instawallet.org? I would find it appropriate to see more than just an email address that doesn't even specify if it's the admin, the owner or his uncle's friend. "An original idea by Jan Vornberger" pretty clearly indicates that Jan is not taking any responsibility, so who does?

I'm not sure about how the footer looked like when you posted your message, but now it says "Paymium".

Also if you use Instawallet on a regular basis and have an iPhone you'll want to download our iOS app Smiley

Too late ! Friendlypay was pulled from the appstore today by Apple's bitcoin-cleaning patrol..

You can still find instawallet for android in Google Play !

seems the only viable option is to use html5 like easywallet.

it seems to me the vendetta is actually limited to bitcoin only. square, paypal don't appear to have these problems.

...or maybe the interest in obtaining Instawallet was as a way to fund someone's retirement?
