Hi folks,

I have released the Aegis Bitcoin Wallet for Android:

Here is the official site: http://www.aegiswallet.com/
Here is the Play Store Page: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.aegiswallet
Here is the GitHub Repo: https://github.com/bsimic0001/AegisWallet

I made this wallet because I didn't think there was a secure wallet solution for Android. The project is free and open source forever. Contributions and pull requests are encouraged and much appreciated.

Here are some features that it provides over other wallets:

  • Keys are encrypted on the device at all times
  • You can use an NFC tag or a strong password to encrypt/decrypt your wallet
  • If your phone is lost or stolen, your BTC is safe due to encryption
  • New user interface that is easy to use
  • Import of private keys
  • Watch addresses
  • SPV node built using BitcoinJ

Here is a screenshot of the main page:

Any and all feedback is much appreciated. Feel free to get on Github and submit an issue for features or bugs. New features are being worked on every day.

Thanks everyone!

I have a quick question for you, having just browsed a bit of the GitHub repo. Are you using the Nymi SDK? Do you know what the licensing terms for it are? How redistribution of it works? I can't seem to find any info on their website....

Thanks.

The NyMi SDK is free to use as far as I know. You just have to register as a developer and use it. They have an emulator that is available that you can use.

Hope that helps.

Added some new features that I think you guys will like.

1. SMS

Now if you don't know a person's Bitcoin address, you can just put in their mobile number and they will receive an SMS telling them to reply with their Bitcoin address. Once they reply, Aegis will take the address and ask you to confirm.

The Aegis Wallet app does not read your SMS messages or send them to any place. You can view the source code on GitHub.

2. Android wear support.

App allows for android wear notifications, receive address, and balance.
New watch face.

Any thoughts on using a smartwatch for 2-factor? I've heard some say this would be a good idea and others pay it would be pointless.

I don't think it's pointless. The watch has the same sandbox restrictions as the phone and it's being used as a valid 2 factor method. It is actually one of the next features I plan on implementing.

What is the reason for not checking the entire blockchain for UTXOs for my watch addresses? I find this very annoying in an otherwise awesome wallet.
