This past week we've released Version v1.1 of Steakwallet which comes with a lot of new functionality and officially takes the iOS app out of Alpha and into the Beta version. This quick post runs through the most important updates.
We are still in an early stages and the focus of Steakwallet remains to simplify staking across all major blockchains. We're adding support for more and more tokens and are working on improving performance across all functionality within the app.
We've also removed the waitlist feature, as the app is into a Beta stage — giving more people easy access to the easiest way of staking your crypto. We're also excited about launching the Android Alpha of Steakwallet.

We happy to have launched Steakwallet for Android. Now everyone on Android can also stake their favorite crypto in the simplest way out there, multi-chain and mobile-first. This is an Alpha version of Steakwallet, but we're working hard on bringing the Android app in line with the iOS version.
