It's very good, and one of the most secure simple to use on Android, however the battery usage is insane. In 50 mins I have gone from 100% to 80% and battery usage shows breadwallet as the highest drainer by a LONG way. I haven't opened the app at all today, the only way is to force close the app to stop whatever is happening in the background.
App no longer hangs while syncing. Still prefer Mycelium, which is ugly but (so far) rock solid. I recommend this to all my less tech savvy bitcoin converts 😁
Syncing often gets stuck at 100%. EDIT: It's better now, but frequently fails to start sync upon opening. So far no more hangs at 5% or 100%.
Forcing a screen lock = not cool. I keep my phone with me at all times, just like my physical wallet, and I don't want to turn on an annoying screen lock just for this app. Having me enter a secure passphrase only when starting the app is sufficient to encrypt the private key. Look, I get it, most people need to have their hand held through the process of securing their stuff, and adding an extra layer of security is covering your own behinds. But there needs to be an option for advanced users to not use the Android built-in encrypted storage, and use an app-specific one instead. This is how my password manager works. Heck, I could do it for you. Just implement PBKDF2 and enforce a minimum password length and salt the remaining bits. Encrypt the private key using that. Boom. Just please don't force overbearing (and redundant) security features on users who don't want or need them.
Continually gets stuck in a loop where it keeps asking me to confirm my pattern. Edit: removed lock and reinstalled, works fine now.
Worked great but now when i open the app it doesnt respond to any touch input. Im unable to see my balance or do anything.
