ECOMI APP Version 2.2.0- What’s New?
The latest ECOMI app version has just released, and with it, a number of updates have been made as we move forward with our development plans. The latest app version will be available sometime this week on both Android and iOS, and it is imperative you keep your app updated with the latest security features and functionality. So what is new in the ECOMI app, and how do you take advantage of the new features?
1. Pin Code Security
In case you missed it, the current ECOMI app update (version 2.1.0) has created an additional layer of security by allowing you to create a pin-code. To take advantage of this, simply hit the ‘settings’ icon on your home screen, and then hit ‘add PIN’ as indicated by the red arrow in the image below (left). You will then be prompted to create a 6 digit pin code and must re-enter the same pin to confirm it.
Once this is done, your pin code will be set and you must use it to access the ECOMI app from now on. Of course, you can always change your pin, or remove it from the app by accessing your settings and selecting one of the options (as indicated in the image below right).
2. Multiple Card Support
The newest app update (due out this week on Android and iOS) has also added multiple card support. This means you’ll be able to pair more than one Secure Wallet to the ECOMI app, at the same time, simply by accessing your settings page.
This feature is designed to offer users more flexibility when using Secure Wallet. For example, you may use one Secure Wallet for long-term cold storage, and another for everyday transactions.
Further down the development timeline, the ECOMI app will also become a cross-platform application, with mobile, desktop and browser functionality. Multiple card support is a necessary step in the development of the app, to offer users more functionality, and particularly as we push into the mass market with the release of ECOMI Collect.
As you may be aware, the ECOMI Collect Digital Wallet is due for release in Q3/4, and by adding multiple card support we can ensure that collectors are able to access both their crypto-currencies and their digital collectibles (as non-fungible tokens) from the ECOMI app. This also ensures collectors are able to maintain the highest levels of security and access using ECOMI’s cold storage solutions, cross-platform, from the device of their choosing.
Moreover, as the Digital Wallet will be distributed in a retail starter pack, we are also able to redesign its appearance to create limited edition wallets using the content/licenses we have acquired. At a retail price point of $29.99- and with a rare collectible included- it is likely that collectors will use more than one wallet, and as such, multiple card support is a vital step in reaching this market sector. See the ECOMI Pitch-deck for more information.
3. Other Updates
Aside from these features, a number of other updates have been made to the ECOMI app:
- Secure Wallet firmware update
- Implements a more stable data source for balances and transaction history
- Makes the header on coin detail pages scrollable for better UX on small devices
- Adds a backspace on the enter pin screen
- Standard bug fixes and minor UI changes
What’s Next for the Secure Wallet and ECOMI App?
Thanks to the countless hours put in by our development team, the Secure Wallet is not only the most secure cold storage device available, but it is also the most functional device for everyday use. As of writing, the Secure Wallet can currently store Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple and Bitcoin Cash.
However, after huge anticipation, we are happy to announce that ERC20 support is next up on the development rollout!
ERC-20 is a token standard used for smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. It is used for creating and implementing tokens specific to a project/company, and by adding ERC-20 support, you will soon have the option to store your private keys for more than 100,000 new tokens, securely and offline on the Secure Wallet. ERC-20 support is expected to be functional and fully available by the end of the month, so keep an eye out on our blog and join us in Telegram to stay up to date!
