Uniswap launches Android wallet app with built-in swap function

The Uniswap Android app has finished beta testing and is now publicly available.

Uniswap Labs has publicly released an Andriod mobile wallet app with built-in swap capability on the Google Play store.

The 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, Uniswap Labs vice president of design Callil Capuozzo told Cointelegraph.

The app was released in a closed beta on Oct.12, but this is the first time the Android version has become available to the general public. An iOS version was released in April.

Uniswap currently has over $3 billion of crypto locked up in its contracts. The DEX was developed by Uniswap Labs and is governed by the Uniswap decentralized autonomous organization, UniswapDAO.

Capuozzo said after hearing user feedback, the team changed the location of the app’s wallet address display, making it potentially easier for users to cut and paste their address.

Capuozzo said Uniswap added support for new languages and now supports English, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, French and Chinese — both traditional and simplified — and added a setting that allows users to view the value of their crypto in their local currency.

Capuozzo added that Uniswap’s Android app was one of the most requested items the team has been asked for and is expecting demand to be high.

“We’ve been hearing from Twitter replies and our community — they’re always asking ‘When Android? When Android?’” Capuozzo said. He emphasized the team encourages users to continue to submit improvement suggestions.
