Backup and Restore in Aurora 😍

Latest New Compatible Emoji Set, Wallet Backup and Improved Battery Performance in Aurora

Let’s get the bad news out of the way first: Users on this newest version will not be able to transact with users from earlier versions, and vice versa 😱 So everyone will need to update to the latest version.

Why? Well, that’s the good news part. The emoji set Aurora uses for Emoji ID addresses has been updated to fix an issue with platforms that have a habit of breaking pasted Emojis by changing their gender (and in turn the underlying Unicode).

For details on which emojis got kicked out and which new emojis got added, check out this update.

iOS 0.2.0 release notes

You can now back up your wallet, enabling you to secure your testnet Tari (tXTR). Hit the gear icon on the profile screen to back up your wallet to iCloud, so you can restore it onto a different device if your phone gets lost or broken. Unless you decide to betray Apple and switch to Android, in which case you’re currently SOL.

The complete list of updates:

  • Updated emoji set

  • Cloud backup and restore (iCloud)

  • Improved Emoji ID extraction from clipboard

  • Improved reminder notifications asking you to open the app to accept incoming tXTR in the event that your phone fails to accept it automatically

  • Other minor bug fixes, performance, and UI improvements

Android 0.2.0 release notes

In this day and age, there’s one thing people of all political stripes seem to be able to agree on: battery life. We want more of it. Aurora’s new low power mode should help deliver just that. If you’ve had issues with Andriod battery performance in the past, let the community know if you see improvements with this latest version.

Also, you can now back up your wallet to secure your testnet Tari (tXTR). Hit the gear icon on the profile screen to back up your wallet to Google Drive, so you can restore it onto a different device if your phone gets lost or broken.
