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

On the App Store this provider makes no claims about the app being non-custodial or source code being public but on their website we find:

The safest wallet
With Melis you have the complete control of your bitcoins and private keys, you can define spending limits policies and make use of two or more factors authentication.

which is a clear claim but the multi factor authentication is a bit worrying as that might rely on giving their server power to inhibit your transactions.

We also find:

Melis is open source, published on GitHub.

but none of the repositories there has an obvious mobile wallet name. If the source code is somewhere then this is probably an unfortunate way of getting the verdict not verifiable due to lack of source.

Verdict Explained

Few users
This app has too few users for now to be reviewed in detail.

This app still needs to be evaluated but before that, gain some users. In the Play Store there is an infinite list of "wallets" and we focus on those that have the biggest impact if things go wrong.
