We're holding up the international release for a little while to make sure we're export compliant.  I'm almost certain we are, but I want a definitive answer to avoid any legal liability.  The app is still available in the US for the interim.

I'm still anxiously awaiting the official Play Store app  ;D

Will install and test it when it's available!

Hank,
I think it would really set us apart if we implemented something like this in the Android litecoin client.

A series of beeps get played over the air waves or podcast, Then a user can hold up the app to listen to the beeps (like you do with Shazam or soundhound)

Like an audio based QR code.

Here is an article I found where someone achieved it using chirp.io But it would be great to have something like this in the wallet app.

That is an awesome idea! It's kinda like the old internet, where you had to hold your telephone to your computer and get an internet connection: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG9pJB_dkfA#t=173

But some people are asking questions...
Can you (Warren, Hank...) answer them?

Well, the conversion to BlackBerry 10 went fine, and it runs in the emulator like a champ!



Syncs with the blockchain rather quickly (~25 blocks a second in the emulator), confirmed a transaction I sent, backup worked.  I'm going to release this now.

Update: Waiting for BlackBerry to verify my Driver's License ...

Once they're satisfied that I am who I claim to be, it will be published.  It better happen tomorrow.

I just sent 2 LTC to the development fund - thanks again for your efforts on getting it ported to BB10!  I encourage anyone else posting feature requests to also contribute if possible.

Hank, any chance you might be able to upload a signed .APK file so I can manual install and test right away?

I've tracked down the information I needed for export compliance. 

[Removed unnecessary detail]

I'll get the Blackberry version posted shortly.

Within the app Menu > Disconnect shuts down the app entirely until you run it again.

thanks Warren that worked , perhaps renaming it to "Quit" would be easier for noobs to understand.

It can be renamed.  Only trouble is correcting all of the translations.  Our translations are currently copied from the Bitcoin app.  It would be a bit of extra work to setup a Transifex workflow for Litecoin.  In the vast majority of cases we will want people to submit translation fixes to upstream anyway, but it's difficult in these minority cases where we want to deviate from upstream's design decision to not allow quitting.
