>> Download the MEW wallet app HERE

Also, check out the ‘What are DApps’ article for a Deeper dive into all things DApps.


Exploring DApps on your Android:

Interacting with DApps is seamless and available directly on the MEW wallet Android app, with the additional option of connecting to external web DApps that support WalletConnect.

If you’re an iOS user, please see the 'Interacting with DApps on MEW wallet iOS’ article for more information.


Use DApps via the in-app browser

Step 1. Go to the Browser tab.

Step 2. You should now be seeing the featured DApps page.

Step 3. If you’re looking for a specific DApp, try searching it in the search bar. Otherwise, feel free to try out some of the DApps shown in the ‘Featured’ section. Recently browsed DApps will appear in ‘Recent’, and users can also mark DApps as favorites so they’ll show up in the ‘Favorites’ section.

The in-app browser allows you to visit any website, much like a desktop browser. When you use the MEW wallet browser, you are visiting third-party websites. They are not affiliated with MEW. Being able to visit a site in the MEW browser does not mean that MEW knows about or endorses that site.

Step 4. MEW wallet will connect to most DApps automatically. If not, select MetaMask, Trust, or Browser/web3 wallet to connect.


Earn on MEW wallet Android

MEW wallet has integrated certain DApps for staking and yield earning right into the app. Go to the Earn tab to explore. For more information on these DApps, see the following:
