Localization support

The support of multiple languages was one of the most requested features by LOBSTR users for a while.

Today we are very happy to announce that LOBSTR mobile apps are translated into five different languages with the latest v4.6.5 release on Android and iOS platforms.

You can now set English, Spanish, Korean, Russian or Thai language as the default one in the Settings of LOBSTR mobile apps. Keep up with the prices, send funds, trade on SDEX and enjoy other features in your preferred language.

The localization of LOBSTR apps is currently being actively worked on. We’ll continue improving this feature and updating the translations in the upcoming releases. We are also looking to add support for more languages such as Chinese and French in the future — stay tuned for more announcements.

There is some good news for web app users as we’ll roll out the support of localization for LOBSTR web app in the upcoming months.
