Poor user experience. Took a lot of tries to get it to sync. Maybe underlying electrum server issue but should detect and switch or it becimes useless. Anyway, after finally got a balance then tried channel and to buy coffee. Tx never went thru. Channel closed. Balance vanished again and seem to now be on stuck server again. An experience like this will destroy any hope for LN.
This is pretty amazing! I would just make it *much* more clear you can swipe on the main page... I'm not sure how, but it was very very not apparent how to open a channel at first. It should have some kind of "nudge" like MacOSX icons in the bottom jumping when they need something. A Bitcoin symbol should jump from the left side saying "send me some $$$ to spend!" and the right side should have a lightning bolt annoy you to open new channels :)
Love the gui. I'm not sure if this is the best place for feedback, but I couldn't find another. 1. Can I request a payment from a peer? 2. Can I send an LN payment to a peer who is also running this app? 3. Bug... When sending BTC on chain, I clicked the fee setting button and it changed to Low. There was no way to change it back to High. I was able to manually enter a fee. Looking good so far, and a great way to help people understand how LN will work for day to day buying.
Looks good. Trying to buy a coffee on starblocks however I can't seem to open a chanel when selecting 'paste a node uri'. The auto connect node gives me an error no route.
You guys have really done an amazing job but you should really think about opening it up to a mainnet alpha. You can cap the number of users and make sure there is a sign up process so that everyone knows funds can be lost given the experimental nature. I just really think there is nothing like real life bug bounties for software like this. Everyone that's excited about what your team is doing would be happy to potentially burn 100 bucks to make your LN app better.
A+. Would be neat to view all transactions associated with a particular channel. Tap a channel to get a drop-down of all previous transactions in that channel. How about an explorer to see if your friend is connected to you through the network.
