Uniswap is the world’s largest decentralized cryptocurrency exchange by cumulative volume processed Over $1.7 trillion worth of trades since its inception, according to data from DeFi Llama. Most trading is done via a web-based application. However, the team launched a mobile app for iOS on April 13. Before this date, the team had complained that Apple was holding up the launch of the app in the Apple App Store. Even after getting the green light from the App Store, Uniswap still doesn’t have a dedicated app for Android devices.
According to an announcement on October 12, a new beta Android app allows users to choose coins in different chains without switching networks. It automatically detects the network the coin is running on and switches to that network without the user asking. It can currently be used on Polygon, Arbitrum, Optimism, Base, and BNBChain, with more chain compatibility scheduled in the future.
The wallet also routes Ethereum transactions through a private pool to help avoid front-end and sandwich attacks, although this feature can be turned off if the user prefers. Additionally, it automatically detects most currencies that have built-in conversion fees. These fees are displayed in the interface, making the user aware of them.

The announcement links to an email waitlist sign-up, which he said will be used to roll out copies of the app to early users. The team also plans to release the app’s open source code in the coming weeks, as part of a security audit with Trail of Bits.
Uniswap is not the only decentralized exchange offering a mobile wallet. In 2021, 1Inch launched a mobile wallet for iOS, of which there was an Android version published in October.
