Blocky

Blocky serves a simple purpose. It adds your Bitcoin Public Key QR code to a place it belongs, to your quick settings!

Because it lives in the System UI you'll never have to wait for your bitcoin wallet app to load ever again.

And even if you don't use a mobile wallet you can still take payments!

How it works

Blocky leverages the CyanogenMod SDK in order to create a custom tile that contains your public key QR.

It's implementation is also rather straightforward. We take the public key on the App's Launching. Once you add it you're done!

When you put in your public key we make a network call to the Blockchain API to generate a QR image that propagates the RemoteView that you see in the drawer.

Requires

  • CyanogenMod 12+
  • Any Bitcoin Wallet Public Key
