Proposal description

This proposal will be to fund the Maintenance and Support for the Dash Wallet for Android for 3 months (May - July, 2017). 

Fee: 13 DASH per month for 3 months (Total:  39 DASH).
10 DASH/month ($610) for the main developer (Total: 30 DASH - $1840)
1.33 DASH/month ($81) to fund a backup person for tech support (Total: 4 DASH: $244)
1.67 DASH/month ($102) to cover for Proposal Submission Fee (Total 5 DASH: $305)
** Conversion rate of $61/DASH as of 12 April 2017

More summary information to be added here by 16 April 2017, but the PDF below contains all the information.

This app is at:
  Google Play:

We have been maintaining and updating this app since 2014 (nearly 3 years).  InstantSend was added in 2016 (over 1 year ago).  During that time we did receive some donations, some of which came from masternodes for part of a year.  We are not part of the Dash Core team, but work with some of them.

In recent months the usage of the app has doubled from 4000 to 8000 active installs (Google Play stats) and the amount of bug reports and user issues has also increased significantly.  This proposal will fund maintenance, updates, bug fixes and user support and give the Dash Wallet for Android priority over other projects with which Hash Engineering Solutions is involved.

In the future do you have plans to implement instant or privatesend?

To be clear I already voted yes, just a question for future reference.

InstantSend is already supported not sure about privatesend.

Thank you Roman for giving the correct answer regarding InstantSend. It has been supported for one year. This app implements InstantSend nearly the same way as Dash Core, with notifications for both sending and receiving as far as whether or not the masternodes approved of the transaction.

Privatesend probably not due to the simple reason that the Android wallet does not mix

Thank you Dworf. It is correct that this android wallet does not have a coin mixing feature and therefore PrivateSend is not supported. I thought heavily about adding this feature, but my current understanding is that the Android wallet would need to keep an open connection with a specific masternode until mixing is complete. This cannot be guaranteed. The app itself is not always on the network (it will disconnect after a certain amount of idle time), but more critically, a mobile device's IP address changes based on which cell tower or WIFI network it is on - thus breaking the connection to the masternode. In the future it may be possible to resolve some of these issues if the user is required to stay on the same WIFI channel, for instance, until the mixing is complete or the mixing would be cancelled. Regardless of the reasons, this proposal does not cover adding a new feature such as PrivateSend.
