The testing period has officially ended. This means that after the upload of the App to Google Play the developer will be eligible to get paid for this work which I’m more than happy to do given the quality of the work.
The developer also send me some responses to questions we had in the last week or so:
Return to home
For the suggestion of returning to the home page, the way it currently
works is to run through the stages of submitting a transaction, and once
it is broadcast it displays the information of the broadcast
transaction. After a successful broadcast it displays “Sent!”. It could
be changed if desired, though I would have thought myself that the
current functionality makes sense. This way you can also take a
screen-shot of the transaction details if desired, before returning to
the home page.
Addressbook receive addresses
The addressbook can show receive addresses if the code is brought in
line with the current bitcoin code. This is something that would take
some extra work as I mentioned in my previous email. I would suggest
another future release* to do just that. Also if the app is updated in
line with the latest bitcoin code, it would also allow one to copy an
address by touching the homepage QR code.
Notification on synchronisation
When you start the app for the first time it does not give information
in regards to synchronisation, but it should be possible to change this
behaviour in a future release* as well.
*future releases are not part of the current contract and will require a new custodial grant.
Bluetooth, NFC etc. limited with Shapeshift
When requesting a non-NuBits payment with bluetooth enabled, the NuDroid
app will not allow one to send via bluetooth, but you can initiate a
regular ShapeShift transfer. If using BIP0070, the NuDroid app will to
recognise the input, as it does not follow BIP0021 URIs. In this case
BIP0070 should not be used when requesting s ShapeShift payment from
those using NuDroid. NFC using other apps will not work. To clarify what
- Manually inputting address
- QR code of address
- QR code of BIP0021 URIs
- BIP0021 URI links
Google Play release
The updated App includes number 4 on the list and fixed a bug. Matthew will upload this in the next days or so to Google Play.
Still waiting for some marketing artefacts to come back. But the banner looks great, will just keep it secret for now.
Also talking to CMC and Shapeshift about the advertising in the next month.
Has been a bit quiet in the email over the weekend, hope the end of the Monday (today) in Europe/USA brings more news. Stay tuned.
