Uniswap Labs Launches Android Wallet App for Decentralized Exchange
Uniswap Labs has made a significant move in the world of decentralized finance by publicly releasing an Android mobile wallet app with built-in swap capability on the Google Play store. This new app allows users to make swaps through the decentralized exchange (DEX) from within the app, eliminating the need for a separate web browser extension.
The app was initially released in a closed beta on Oct.12, but it is now available to the general public for the first time. An iOS version was released in April, marking a significant expansion of Uniswap’s mobile capabilities.
Uniswap currently boasts over $3 billion of crypto locked up in its contracts, solidifying its position as a major player in the decentralized finance space. The DEX was developed by Uniswap Labs and is governed by the Uniswap decentralized autonomous organization, UniswapDAO.
In response to user feedback, Uniswap has made several improvements to the app, including changes to the location of the wallet address display, making it potentially easier for users to cut and paste their address. Additionally, the app now supports multiple languages and allows users to view the value of their crypto in their local currency.
Uniswap vice president of design Callil Capuozzo emphasized the high demand for an Android app, stating, “We’ve been hearing from Twitter replies and our community — they’re always asking ‘When Android? When Android?’” He encouraged users to continue submitting improvement suggestions, indicating a commitment to ongoing development and enhancement of the app.
This move by Uniswap Labs marks a significant step forward in the accessibility and usability of decentralized finance, bringing the power of the DEX directly to users’ mobile devices. With the release of the Android app, Uniswap is poised to further solidify its position as a leader in the decentralized finance space.
