What are the options to use Ethereum on my mobile (Android) smartphone? Is there a "mist for mobile"?


Not yet. You are referring to DApps running on mobile devices, I think.

There are apps available which offer ethereum-related services like [1] but they certainly query some nodes via RPC which removes the decentralization aspect.

As of today, there are no light clients for mobile available yet. A mist for mobile has yet to be implemented.

    Mobile clients builds are available for both Go and C++ clients, though they are experimental – Taylor Gerring Jan 23 '16 at 14:16
  • There are experimental iOS & android Geth builds available here but running a full node on a mobile is probably a bad idea best to wait for a light client. – JackWinters Mar 24 '16 at 13:04
  • for info: Geth with experimental light client support can be found at github.com/zsfelfoldi/go-ethereum/tree/light-stable. I don't however know if/how builds for mobile can be created from it. – didi_X8 Sep 14 '16 at 21:03

Check this out! https://github.com/syng-im

Syng is a mobile client for ethereum it is an initial release of the Syng client. Mainly to demonstrate proof of concept and encourage developer contribution.

I hope its what you are looking for.


BlockApps provides a RESTful interface to build dapps on Ethereum. You would interact with a deployed strato node just like any other rest service.



WallETH aims to fill this gap - but we are not there yet. http://walleth.org
