Introducing Steemia - A new mobile app to access the Steem Blockchain!

in steem •  5 days ago
Hello Steemians,

We just released the Steemia mobile app on Google Play Store

Steemia is a social networking app built on the decentralized Steem Blockchain that reward users in Steem and Steem Dollars Cryptocurrencies.

The goal of this app is to give the Steemit community (steemit.com) a mobile app where they can carry out their daily activity on the Steem Blockchain (access steemit.com smartly using an app) while earning rewards (getting paid) in the process.

This app will provide users robust experiences in addition to features typically found on other social media platform including a peer to peer chat and push notifications; it also gives users the ability to watch various cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum.

Features

This app offers a simple and attractive interface with an aesthetic and robust user experience. Here is a short list of some of the features present in this app:


  • Publish your articles and earn rewards by engaging with your blog viewers as well as gain followers.
  • Fully control in how much rewards you allocate when you upvote an article so you do not always vote at 100% power.
  • Get notifications from the app on transfers, follows, and discussions (comments) you are involved in.
  • Personalize your profile.
  • Bookmarks to save your favorite articles for later use.
  • Track of your external BTC, LTC, and ETH wallet.
  • Image upload from gallery and directly from the camera of your device.

Is my password/private key secured with this app?

This app relies on SteemConnect which means that your information will be always secured and will not be shared with us or any other party other than SteemConnect itself. In addition, we add an extra security layer. This application encrypts the token received from SteemConnect which is for certain broadcast actions in the blockchain.

In short, there is no way to get your account compromised by using this app since we do not store your private key nor your master password. In fact, the token received from SteemConnect is stored and encrypted on the end user device which means that the only device capable to decrypt it is yours.

Does this app take any beneficiary reward?

We do take a 15% fee from each post made from the app. This 15% is breaking down in the following:

  • 10% to cover Steemia’s server and/or cloud storage for assets.

In order to maintain the application lighter, we need to take care of all the data in backend as well as all the images uploaded through the app.

  • 5% to power up our bot voting account to support our users.

We want to growth with you! We will support our users by giving upvotes with our voting bot.

Is Steemia open-source?

We believe that a blockchain project should be open source and transparent, thus we have developed Steemia with this idea. In this regard, our developers received the greatest support from @utopian-io. Utopian gave a great support to Steemia and more countless open source projects. You can access all the source code of Steemia app via Github.

Contributions are always welcome!

You can always contribute to Steemia via Github or Utopian. We attach great importance to the ideas of the community, therefore if you noticed an error/bug in Steemia or you have an idea for Steemia you will honor us by reporting it on Github or Utopian.

Special Thanks

We want to take this moment to give a thanks to @oups for this amazing logo and to @podanrj for our amazing splash screen and all their support in this project. In addition, we want to thanks all the contributors because they really did an amazing job showing us their contribution to this project. We do appreciate you all guys!

In addition, we want to thanks the @busy.org team which did an amazing job with SteemConnect and the notifications system which works excellent in our app! You guys rock!

Also, a very special thanks to those who vote and follow our content constantly 🙂

We don't really know how to thank you for this great support 🙈we got speechless when we saw this comment. THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS! we do really appreciate what you guys are doing to support new projects in the ecosystem ❤️

·
·

I confirmed open source of this project. I fork and played their codes.
Still learning.

Well done job @jaysermendez and @hsynterkr

·
·
·

Yehey! Thank you so much for your support :D

·
·
·
·

We all need all the support out there.

·

How does this compare to the esteem app?....honestly?

·
·

Hello @freethink,

We've developed Steemia with an easier and faster UI in mind. eSteem is great, but we feel like it is missing something.

·
·

It's not easy i think

·

Wow awesome

·

very noble

·

Wow! You guys are awesome!

·
·

Thank you :D You are awesome too!

·
·
·

I was talking to @devfund actually, but you guys rock too! lol Looking forward to trying out your app. Hopefully my junk phone will be compatible :) I'll be back with feedback as soon as I have some to give ;)

·
·
·
·
·

Sweet, Thank you

I have not and will not give out my owner key due to the near quarter million I have in my account. Well over a million will be there if the price goes near where it was pre-crash.

I can't change the main key if someone decides to peak in the server and power me down/ lock me out of my own account. Steemconnect needs to show how the key is transmitted, who can access it and how we are supposed to trust them when our accounts are holding lots of crypto.

Pardon my skepticism. I would put my keys out there if it were $5,000

·

SteemConnect code is I believe thoroughly reviewed and trusted. The problem I have with this app is the built in browser to sign with SteemConnect. It should launch an external browser which we can trust.

I agree it should be usable with a posting key only.

·
·

The browser launched by the app is owned by Android device. It actually uses the native browser engine in order to render the website inside the app. In addition, the url is shown for security purposes so users can confirm that they are really at SteemConnect.

While it is possible to open the browser in an extra app, it will be less intuitive and will add more steps to the UI. In addition, is nearly not possible to have a callback from the native browser application. The way that SteemConnect works is by using callbacks. In our case, our callback will redirecgt back to a dummy localhost address which is used to capture the accesss token and close the browser renderer at the app.

While for websites it is suitable to open another tab with SteemConnect because you can use the callback, it is impossible on phones since the callback cannot redirect you to the app.

Also, all the source code is there for audition. The plugin used to launch the browser in the app is itself a component of each Android device.

Waiting for iOS version...

·

We will be working harder in the iOS version to release it as soon as possible 💯

·
·

Hope directly. since I just use IOS

·

Me too!

·

This is about the 12th steem app I've seen for IOS and all of them are CRRAAAABBBAPPLES!

this is awesome. the more the merrier. I am installing it now and will start using it and see what happen. But it looks really good by the way. great worl @steemia-io

·

We agree with you :D

Good to see a project that is upfront about fee and i like that . A lot of people will hate 15% fee cut but i think its a strong sustainable point . Imagine the server and config requirement when 100s of millions of people tries to access at the same time . The cost will be huge and 10% should be nice incentive for the project to go extra mile too. Thumbs up .

·

That is what people don't understand. They think it is 100% free for us to maintain the app running fine. We do need to maintain the cloud storage for assets and the server delivering data to the app. What people don't know is that most of others apps/websites take even more. They just don't know it.

·
·

thats just the market . It is how it is . For long mughal like facebook has injected poison . You need to keep doing the right way . Of course there is Sunshine at the end.

Good to see another mobile app for steem. Hope to see IOS sooner.

·

Yeah...that's great idea

steemia is another great development that make steemit more efficient platform and to make competition to speedup, this will give the users an option to use an app for their own preference. :)

aww yea, sweet

I'd gladly switch from eSteem if not for this 15% commission. It's like you will not have enough support from community without it. Alas, but nope.

·

Hello, most of the applications here does take commissions. However, those are used for the development of the project (which costs money to maintain (for instance, servers and cloud storage for assets)) and as well for our voting bot which will give upvotes to our user to compensate them.

·
·

Does eSteem do it too? Come to think of it I never post from mobile anyway. Maybe I should give your software a shot, after all.

·
·
·

Hello,

if you check at https://steemd.com/@username you can find any information regarding beneficiares. For instance, some applications take even 20% while others take 10% and 15%. In addition, others also take beneficiary from comments (which we consider an abuse).

·
·

Either way, 15% seems high for simply accommodating a post.

·
·
·

We want to invite you to check our repo Steemia Repo and realize that we don't "simply" accomodate a post :). In fact, we are accepting monthly donations to cover servers in exchange of removing the fee :D

Impressed so far! My first try out shows posts don't seem to separate in paragraphs on the app, and the headings don't work. Much of the markdown seems to not function such as

and so on.

If that gets cleaned up, My browsing game will change big time!

·

Hello, thanks for pointing out this bug! We will fix it as soon as possible :D

·

@mobbs what about this now? 😏

Screen Shot 2018-04-18 at 5.13.35 PM.png

We will be releasing it with the next update ;)

·
·

This looks great!

However

I've no idea how feasible it is, but the original was written with <div class = text - justify> which looks absent from this screenshot. Am I right to think images that are also 'pull left/right' will also not apply? how about other niche markdown features like tables and < div class = phishy > and so on?

I think if it's just presentable as your screenshot already is, there's no real problem for me =)

·
·
·

I will need to check the post on my laptop and see how it is formated and try to deliver the same exact format in mobile devices :D

this is rad and awesome cant wait to try

·

:D feel free to try it :D

awesome cant wait!

looks great i will try it

Congratulations on your launch and I wish you great success. A suggestion for one of the intro screens would be to change the word "tracking" to "track".

·

Nice finding! I will fix for next update :) Thanks

·

It is now fixed :D

Goddamit, and this is not on the trending page?

Keep it up guys!
D.

·

Already on trending page :D :D :D :D

·
·

Yes, as it should!
Keep it up!

·

Hello @andrewharland ,

5% of the fee will be used to give back what we take from the community. We will use these to power up our bot and give upvotes to our user. The rest will be used to cover maintenance fees of the servers of the application.

·
·

could be good

another great project especially for mobile. thanks a lot

·

Cheers! I bet your will like it

Good to see these types of projects, congratulations

·

Thank you so much 😎

nice app, awesome.

Welcome to more competition. I've used eSteem a little bit and I came to the conclusion that actually using the browser and loading up steemit.com or busy.org is more practical than the app. Let's see if Steemia manages to offer a better UX than the good old browser ...

·

We will love to hear back your feedback about this new app 😏

I've been testing it out, I have to say it's long overdue!

i love it, steem slowly to da moon, you guys are the real crackaz. s.error

·

💯💯💯💯

yayyyy time for download.

·

Download Download! But don't forget to come back with your feedback :3

·
·

yooooo don forget to buy me a mobile first of all :D

We will give you an unicorn as your birthday gift 🦄

Okay this looks promising. bSteem and Steemia might be the big players at the end for the steem front ends. I like your clean UI, which might provide some more convenience for new users coming from other big social platforms. Good Work guys and girls

Steemia and steemit any difference?

Steemia will allow you to use Steemit (basically) in your mobile device without needing to access the browser. In addition, you will receive notifications directly in your phone (thing that is not possible accessing Steemit from the browser).

Thanks for this app we will support as user as we can

·

Thank you for your support 🔥

Nice lookig app, would love to try this out but i dont like to have Google Play intalled on my devices.
Since the app is open source would you consider releasing through F-droid too?

EDIT
F-Droid is an installable catalogue of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform.

·

Sure, I will investigate more about how F-droid work ;)

·
·

F-Droid is an installable catalogue of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform.

Would give the app extra boost to list on F-droid. And the app would be the first Steem related app to be listed there. Good luck.

·
·
·

I was looking how to submit an app to there. I learned how and will be doing it today :D

No @domdae this app is not free at all. They charge 15%, haven't you been reading the post? I agree this is a nice project, the fee is a little much for me. Maybe...in time when I get rich...wish ...i wish...i surely wish...Anyway, have a lovely day.
