Bright Boson 2.3, iOS — Release Notes

Beam Privacy
Jul 7 · 2 min read

Release date: July 7th, 2019

This release focuses on usability and aesthetics. We’ve implemented many of the features, justifiably requested by our customers in the April 2019 community survey. Just look through the features and improvements list and tell us what else do you need to transform our wallets into a full-fledged financial workstation :)

Features

  • Send/Receive screens were redesigned, so that simple actions will require even less clicks yet to allow advanced settings for a greater flexibility
  • When sending Beam, allow searching for the address to send from (or create a new one)
  • When receiving Beam, allow searching for the address to receive to (or create a new one)
  • A category can be assigned to any address for better readability and bookkeeping.
  • 3D touch and swipe for quick access to various functions from within the app and as well from the launcher
  • Repeated transactions will save your time when sending Beam: choose it, re-edit amount and comment and send!
  • Securely Show Owner key: when connecting to your own node (and your own node only), deploying the wallet owner key will allow the node to monitor all UTXO sent to any wallet generated from the same seed phrase. Don’t share your owner key with others as it allows to see all your funds!
  • Graceful undo of transaction and addresses: when unintentionally deleting an address or sending funds you’ll have a chance to undo it from a snack bar with a nice countdown
  • “Where to buy BEAM?” button is introduced (this handy feature should be used with awareness as switching out from the wallet to the web server is a privacy risk, therefore, every customer will need to explicitly approve the feature before actual use)
  • Laid out a necessary infrastructure groundwork; in the next release the wallet will “speak” other languages than English (contact us if you’d like to help with translation to every language)

Improvements

  • “Send all” is supported when sending Beam to avoid coindust
  • When deleting an address all the related transactions can be optionally deleted
  • Seed phrase words will be autocompleted at most after 4 characters
  • Addresses can be shared using the system dialog
  • Link to Kernel ID of every transaction in blockchain explorer (this feature also should be used with awareness as switching out from the wallet to the web server is a privacy risk, therefore, every customer will need to explicitly approve the feature before actual use)

Fixes

  • Long amounts are displayed correctly
