Community News


elastOS Version 1.1 for Android comes with several new features including a sleek and enhanced UI/UX. Read about all the new upgrades and download today in the Google Play Store. https://news.elastos.org/elastos-version-1-1-official-release-on-android/


Community Announcement: Trinity Tech Ltd., the team responsible for the development of elastOS and its integral technologies, would like to provide an update on the current state of iOS integration. elastOS has progressed to Apple’s testflight, an important milestone in the iOS App Store’s publication process. However, because the elastOS app currently contains a webview wallet, it does not meet the criteria required to advance to publication. In the interim, Apple has validated elastOS for testflight while a native wallet is developed. In order to implement the necessary development adjustments, Trinity Tech has conservatively set aside two months. In the meantime, while development is underway on the native wallet, all community members interested in providing feedback and contributing to the testing process are encouraged to email the team directly at contact@trinity-tech.io.

Thank you for your patience and continued support.


Two new dApps have been released on elastOS: The CR Council Members Voting Capsule and the ElaNodes Capsule, your go to resource for all things supernodes. Find them both here: https://scheme.elastos.org/app?id=org.elastos.trinity.dapp.dappstore
