The most popular Ethereum wallet interface MyEtherWallet (MEW) has announced the launch of the MEWConnect App, which will offer support for iOS and Android devices.

In the new app, an encrypted version of your private key will be stored on your device completely separate from the browser. Now, instead of entering any private data, users simply scan a barcode with the apps QR code scanner on MyEtherWallet.com, which opens your wallet account via a p2p connection.

As with the desktop version of MEW, you will still be able to verify the amount and receiving address before signing a transaction and broadcasting it to the network.

The app also offers additional state-of-the-art security features. No phishers or malware will be able to obtain your private key, as onboarding, restoration, connection and transaction signing are exclusive to the phone environment.

Much like the Ledger Nano S, a 24-word phrase allows you to retrieve your backup key if you ever lose access to your accounts if you get a new device.

MEWConnect is scheduled to launch the beta-version of their free and open-source smartphone app in a matter of days and plans to roll out the full version by September.
