The new newness
1. Sometimes you want to get to a know a crypto better before starting a hodling relationship with one. News articles, CoinCap asset metrics, and more has been added to BTC, ETH and numerous other assets. Now you can learn more about an asset so you can confidently swipe right or ghost the asset completely.

TL;DR: Improved UX & UI

The Details:

- Transaction History Blockchain URLs: They are now dynamically generated, boring but useful for those who had a broken link in their history previously.
- Address Autofill: If you tap the Saved Address button for a new transaction and you only have one address saved for that coin we'll autofill it for you, saving you yet another tap.
- Address Save Button State: The SAVE button will now say SAVED if you're using an address that's already stored in your address book.
- UI Bug: Fixed an animation in the specific amount setup.

Version 1.1

-You can now view your Order ID inside the current transaction view as well as from the transaction tab, helpful for if you have any questions for support!

-Speaking of transactions we now give you more details in the history like when a transaction has started but is awaiting a deposit from you and the exact number of seconds a transaction started, heck we could even through in milliseconds if we wanted, fancy eh?

-In a very matrixy move you can also view the status of your transaction on the shapeshift website from inside the app in the transaction history tab. This way if you start a transaction and then restart your phone, drop it into a lake, or some other mischievous thing you'll still be able to figure out what's going on with your transaction!

-We've updated the app to work nicely with iOS 11 and maintained support for iOS 10. iOS 9 and below, you're on your own!

-Improved Speed & UX

We have a lot more tweaks and additions we want to add but we wanted to get this update out to everyone first!

- Monero outputs now show the Payment Id if one is provided.
