I'm brand shiny new to Dogecoin - I discovered it just last week, got curious, registered with the tipbot, downloaded myself a wallet onto my phone, and have spent a little while just mooching around the subs trying to learn how it all works - no dogecoins acquired yet.
The wallet I've downloaded is "doughwallet" from Code Frosting UG, on an iPhone 4G...and I've had nothing but problems with it so far.
It takes about three hours to reach about 97% syncing, and then just sticks - the doughwallet twitter says they know about the problem, and are working on fixing it, though, but it does seem to be taking an awfully long time, for something that says it's the official Dogecoin wallet on the Dogecoin website. I've never yet managed to get it to sync completely.
It also crashes out of the app about one in three times, after a short while, for no apparent reason.
And, for something that says it's the official wallet, I've never seen anyone mention it around here. Is that because it's kind of a given that it's being used by everyone, and the only ones that warrant mention are when it's something different? Or have I gone drastically awry and tried to use something obscure and unreliable?
Maybe it really is just a glitchy bad patch and I've had a run of bad luck...or maybe I'm doing something terribly wrong...so I don't know whether I need reassurance or setting straight from someone more experienced, but either would be very much appreciated! (And, as mentioned, I have no doge yet, so I apologize that I can't tip anyone for their help, but know that I love you!)
TL;DR - new to doge, trying to use doughwallet, am I doing this right?
