The following Analysis is not a full code review! We plan to make code reviews available in the future but even then it will never be a stamp of approval but rather a list of incidents and questionable coding practice. Nasa sends probes to space that crash due to software bugs despite a huge budget and stringent scrutiny.

Do your own research!

Try out searching for "lost bitcoins", "stole my money" or "scammers" together with the wallet's name, even if you think the wallet is generally trustworthy. For all the bigger wallets you will find accusations. Make sure you understand why they were made and if you are comfortable with the provider's reaction.

The Analysis

Update: As the app is not available on Google Play, we assume it is defunct now.

Their description claims:

Guarantee your exclusive control over seed words or private key of the wallet.

which probably means non-custodial.

But we see no word about its source code.

On their website we find a link to GitHub but nothing about Android there, so we assume it is closed-source.

Verdict: This app is not verifiable.

Verdict Explained

This app is no more. The provider removed it from Google Play and/or stopped supporting it.
