Lisk Mobile has Been Released: Learn More About the Official Lisk Wallet
Lisk Mobile is online!
The Lisk Mobile project was initially announced in June of this year, as part of the overall strategy to develop a different user interface to facilitate the adoption and use of Lisk.
In a blog post, the Lisk team announced the official release of the app on the 4th of October, 2018.

The app is available to download both on the Apple Store and the Google Play Store. The development of Lisk Mobile is a great step towards increased adoption as it allows users to have a Lisk wallet installed in all their smartphones. The app has been developed focusing on offering “a limited feature-set with a special focus on immersive user experience”.
The app allows users to create and sign into a Lisk account, transfer, receive and request LSK, get an overview of your account activity and explore individual transactions.
The team also released a one minute video to learn more about Lisk Mobile:
The basic features in this first release will be complemented by new updates of the app, introducing more features in four main categories – mantaining a strong focus on security and user experience.
- Access via biometric authentication
- Continuous sign-in
- Backup of the account’s passphrase
- Increased test-coverage
- A more elaborative welcome screen
- Dynamic on-boarding
- Tooltips and support from anywhere within the application
- Incognito mode (to hide LSK values and/or Lisk IDs)
- Night mode
- Notifications for confirmed outgoing transactions
- Notifications for incoming transactions
- Bookmarked accounts
The team plans to have Lisk Mobile as a fully-featured app in 2019. Their final plan is to have an app that supports localization into many languages, market and price information, the possibility of acquiring LSK, and a major design overhaul. Details about major changes will follow in the next year.
As specified by Max Kordek, the team is working on two bullet points of Lisk roadmap: Access via biometric authentication and Continuous sign-in, as you can see in the project board on GitHub. That means you won’t need to type in your passphrase all the time anymore.
Here are some screenshots of the app:
