New ADAMANT Messenger for iOS: improvements, updates and in-chat Lisk transfers

Apple device owners are the first to test the new feature of the ADAMANT Messenger: Lisk token (LSK) transfer in chats. We’ve added this option in iOS app update 1.3. By the way, now ADAMANT Messenger works on iPad too!

Main news — Lisk integration

LSK transfers are the major innovation in this release. These are platform tokens for open source Lisk decentralized applications written in NodeJS / JavaScript. Lisk is one of the first to use the Delegate Proof-of-Stake (dPoS) protocol which after some improvements formed the basis of the ADAMANT Fair dPoS consensus. Now large IT companies including Microsoft are interested in Lisk.

It is just as convenient and safe to store and transfer LSK in ADAMANT as in the Lisk Hub native wallet. As in case of ADM and ETH transfers that were added in the last release for iOS, only you own the private keys to the wallets.

Transferring tokens in the ADAMANT Messenger iOS app is simple and intuitive. You can either transfer it to the another person in a chat or withdraw it to an external wallet.

Currently Lisk transfers are integrated only into the iOS app. PWA and Android will support Lisk later.

Improvements and fixes

We’ve added some details that make the iOS app more convenient.

  1. Avatars for contacts. Now each account has its own unique automatically generated avatar picture. This makes finding contacts visually easier.
  2. Comments for ADM transfers: you can add notes in the relevant field that will be displayed below the transfer amount.
  3. iPad support. Now Apple tablet owners can also use our app.
  4. Other improvements affecting messages sending, QR codes generation and general app stability. These changes are internal but they make use the app more comfortable. Less errors, faster speed.
