The Lisk Mobile project was initially announced in June of this year, as part of the overall strategy to develop a different user interface to facilitate the adoption and use of Lisk.
In a blog post, the Lisk team announced the official release of the app on the 4th of October, 2018.📱🚀We’re pleased to announce the release of #Lisk Mobile.

The app is available to download both on the Apple Store and the Google Play Store. The development of Lisk Mobile is a great step towards increased adoption as it allows users to have a Lisk wallet installed in all their smartphones. The app has been developed focusing on offering “a limited feature-set with a special focus on immersive user experience”.
The app allows users to create and sign into a Lisk account, transfer, receive and request LSK, get an overview of your account activity and explore individual transactions.
The team also released a one minute video to learn more about Lisk Mobile:
