Even if you've used Koala Wallet for a while, there may be shortcuts or features that you didn't know exist. We'll go through some of them below:
Send Dollar amount
Instead of entering the amount of an asset to send, you can directly enter the equivalent Dollar value and let Koala figure out how the equivalent number of coins. Tap the asset symbol to switch between setting the asset amount and the equivalent Dollar value.
For several reasons your device may lose connection to our servers and show an outdated balance. To force a balance refresh, swipe down on the main screen of your wallet.
Likewise, you can force a refresh of the transactions of a certain asset by swiping down inside that asset's wallet.
For privacy when you want to show off your wallet to others or check transactions on a crowded place, you can hide your balances and transaction values by pressing the "eye" icon above your total balance on the main screen.
You can scan QR codes directly from the main screen. If the QR code also encodes the asset type, Koala Wallet will automatically send from that exact asset. No need to open the asset's wallet and press "send". It can even warn you if you appear to be sending the wrong asset than what's encoded on the QR code. Koala Wallet always encodes the type on each asset's "receive" screen, and can also encode the chain and amount you want to receive.
