I'm proud to announce that version 2.1 of Bitcoin Wallet for Android is released.

New features:

- advances on the Holo UI, uses ActionBar and ActionModes
- changes how the P2P network stays connected (disconnect in the overflow menu actions!)
- supports sending and receiving of address labels via QR code or NFC
- is based on the freshly released BitCoinJ 0.5

You can either
update via Google Play
or
download from Google Code

As soon as encrypted private keys are supported by BitCoinJ, Bitcoin Wallet will support it as well.

Wonderful that it now has the "Disconnect" option. Thanks for the good work!

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

Great update, thanks, still the best mobile client imho.
When can we expect a wallet 'export' or 'backup' function?
With the update my old wallet got screwed up and i lost some BTC in the process Sad

if your bitcoins are not showing up after update, do not worry (yet). wait until the blockchain is back up to date the coins will then show up. i had this problem, too.

Yep, you're right Smiley Seems it had to download the entire blockchain again, took a bit of time Smiley

Some background info: Due to bugs in earlier versions, some wallets contained inconsistent transactions. I decided to simply rebuild these wallets from scratch (using the existing private keys of course).

I'm all for making this as simple (and secure) as possible.

Yes, testnet2 has become quite rough during the last months, AFAIK mainly due to the mining rules change. How is the prodnet version doing on your phone?

testnet3 is not (yet) supported by Bitcoin Wallet, and I'm thinking about what a good transition would be. Certainly I do not want to maintain three flavors of the same app.

I just downloaded and installed the prodnet version and it crashed at startup =) Two reports sent. But now it's currently downloading the blockchain and I'm gonna test more tomorrow.

Btw, I translated the app to swedish at transifex to 100%. so I hope we get it in the next version.

One thing I noticed is that on the main window when I scroll from Both to ether received or sent the background gets gray if it don't have any transactions. I got that bug running Android 2.3.7, rom CM7.2 on my phone.... I don't have that on android 4.0.3 on my tablet.
