App version 3.8.5 now available for iOS and Android


Update Antenna and Gain Improvements

Several users have noted that submitting the antenna and elevation was not working as expected. Through testing, the team discovered that the keyboard’s “Done” button can dismiss the entire screen erroneously letting users know they had submitted the transaction. Secondly, we found that users tended to enter a value for dbi first and couldn’t because the app required a selection from the antenna dropdown first. We’ve changed this to allow input first, and defaulting the dropdown to “Custom Antenna”.

• When updating a Hotspot antenna, tapping the done button will close the keyboard, displaying an “Update Antenna” button to submit the transaction.

• When updating a Hotspot antenna, tapping dbi field to enter a number will default the “Select Antenna” dropdown to “Custom”

New Account and Import Account UX

Updates import and create new account experience to use all capitals to prevent misspelling of seed words. Also updates seed phrase challenge to re-enter all 12 words when creating a new account.

Deeplinking and Transaction Signing from the Helium App

We’ve added support in the Helium app to sign transactions on behalf of Maker apps (or other apps) to reduce the amount of times a user will have to re-enter their seed phrase. This also ensures no private keys are leaked to apps unofficial to the Helium Network.

Bug Fixes

• Fixes a bug for newly added Hotspots when you tap on the name on the Home screen, and nothing happens
