I have to debug some problem with utxo maintenance in explorer code, that affects PoS transactions, and then some more tests with Lichtsucher. Then it will be a matter of hours to publish it.

Nevermind the 211 version, just take the one in the link, it's the last one.
I've downloaded latest version and I have still there "Bitcoin Nodes" in advanced settings, but after clicking on that there is "Biblepay Nodes".
So I don't know if it is still bug, or I have bad version.

The version you have is fine for testing. The version with the label fix is still in develepment, I will wait until the paper wallet sweep is ready to publish a new one.

Private key imports tested with Licht's test explorer. As soon as he considers it's worth moving to Live explorer, we release the Android wallet!

I sent it for release but it's better to wait until explorer is ready. And I would prefer Rob to do the honours and the announcement  :)

MIP this is really awesome. I deleted your "beta" version app, then install from Google Store and recover.
All without problems. Awesome. Thanks a lot.
Importing key is not working for me now, with message "The private key is empty". Will be waiting for explorer :)

Yep... That's the reason. As google play might take a random time to publish the app, and I'm leaving for a long journey tomorrow, I preferred to publish it today. Surprisingly it became searchable in less than 2 hours.

I sent Rob the badge for download section in the web and I leave him the honour to make the official announcement. Import will be available as soon as Licht's explorer is upgraded next sunday.

Great job on the app, MIP! I have a suggestion.

Would the app work with a lower minSdkVersion? I'm worried that Android 6.0+ is probably not what most of the unbanked population have on their phone.

Furthermore, according to https://developer.android.com/training/basics/supporting-devices/platforms , Google recommends as a good practice to support about 90% of the active devices, while targeting your app to the latest version (targetSdkVersion).

Here is a nice pie chart of the version distribution: https://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/

So 90%+ would include 4.4, but I know that's a drastic difference in OS, so if the app doesn't work on 4.4, maybe you could at least include 5.0-5.1, since the OS is basically the same as 6.0, so the app should work, and that would increase the app penetration by a whole 23%, which is around 500 million users more. :) And probably a lot of the unbanked would be in that 500 mil.

This was commented and explained before. Android under version 6 lacks the security measures to protect the wallet keys against a theft or root attack, because it has no built in  encrypted storage.

And i fully agree with them. Why create an unsafe wallet thar can be tampered easily and you can lose thousands? I don't want to be responsible, even morally, of that.

Let's hope Androids under version 6 get outdated soon as tech advances and become more affordable.
