Amethyst v0.77.0-alpha: Amber Support

Amethyst is a free and open source Nostr client for Android while Amber is an Android Nostr event signer.

Amethyst v0.77.0-alpha: Amber Support
  • "Today marks the beginning of a new era for Nostr Android. A native signing app (Amber) can now store the keys while every other Nostr app focuses on their own use cases. The time of inserting your private key in every native app is over."
  • "Well, at least technically over. Consider this a test release. Bugs are expected."
  • "We hope other Nostr apps for Android follow the same path and stop storing a private key with their own databases. And, hopefully, iOS apps will follow soon."
  • You can download Amber here.
