*Edit: ok so was great, but now im 48 hours into trying to update this and it's still at 6% scanning. Oncw this updates im out. This is ridiculous.* Better than Unstoppable for zcash blockchain syncing.. good but slow. First loading of wallet takes many hours to first sync and scan, subsequent opening of the app provides faster load times for the wallet but still 3-5 minutes. Not for fast trades but safe and secure if a little slow!

I was trying this out to experiment working with the z cash on wallets I have frequent problems with uploading the blockchain to check my balance on iOS on Android if there was a desktop app that was much more stable. I probably return back to this.

Maybe more robust settings options like lock with fingerprints or a pass code. Maybe a big green button under the send Zcash for a recieve Zcash button. Don't like the side shift button where something more useful could be, like a switch between USD/ZEC balance view, that would be HUGE(same for sending, ; visual $$ amounts will help interface.) These are tiny nags, tested small amounts a couple times, it works like a wallet should, privacy is a must!
