Kiva by Panok – version 0.3.2

Version 0.3.2

Get it on Google Play

What’s new?

  • Bug fix for clearing encryption storage.
    On “Logout” and “Exit” the encryption storage for your credentials will be reset.
  • Increased minimum Android API version to 10.
    Seems like only ~5% of total Android market goes below API 10, so I decided to drop them.
  • Some UI improvements.
