Ripple-backed XRPL Labs releases XRPayments on Playstore and App store
The Ripple-backed startup, XRPL Labs had been working on various technologies to develop the ecosystem. One of these technologies, XRPayment, was in its testing phase and has been finally launched and made available on the Google Play store and Apple app store.
Wietse Wind, the developer of XRPtipbot and one of the developers at XRPL Labs, informed the XRP community about this on his Twitter. Wind stated:
“Right on time! 🎉 🎉 🎉 Our XRPayments app was just accepted by Google and Apple. You can get the app now from the Apple iOS or Google Play store, and start accepting $XRP for payments in your physical store!”
The application received a lot of traction, especially from the XRP enthusiasts, however, one of the users pointed out an issue he encountered while using the application. Twitter user @almost_summer_ asked Wind:
“hi Wietse great job! just downloaded it, if i open the coinbase or uphold wallet app i can scan the QR but it does not auto fill in the amount of XRP to send. the XRPay web version did fill in the amounts. is that supposed to be like that?”
Wind replied to the user saying that the team wanted users to think about the amount they and perhaps tip the service. He also added:
“Some wallet apps can read a pre filled amount, and the web version implemented that, thus breaking support with some other clients. For this app we wanted 100% support, so we left out the pre filled amount feature for now.”
Wind and the team are also working on a ‘signing platform’ which will enable the users to sign and approve transactions from an application or the web application from any developer, without sharing their mnemonic, through a push message or QR code.
