TronWallet Guide: Using Multiple Accounts, Address Book & Storing Contacts?
Tron Foundation has added two most in-demand innovations to its newly unveiled TronWallet, namely, multiple accounts and an address book to store contacts.
You can now split your operations with multiple accounts and create addresses based on your contacts with @TronWalletMe! The application is already available on Android and soon on iOS. Thanks to the community that helped make it happen! https://t.co/0GnK9CZZew $TRX #TRON

Users can now split their operations into multiple accounts. For those who are conversant with the app, the look has totally changed. While significant data is still intact on the platform, the screen is now considered as an account. There, the controls for Multiple Accounts are possible.
The card you see on top of the screen indicates which Account you have selected. At first, there will be a single card only but as you start using the app and create new accounts those will show up to the right and left of it and you will be able to select which will be active by swiping to that account.
To begin using that feature first tap on the top right button on the main screen. This will create a new account and automatically select it as current. Every time you swipe to a different account (dragging the screen to the right or left of the card in the center) your list of tokens, Tron Power, Bandwidth and the rest of the information will change to reflect those of your selected account.
While your newly created account is automatically given a name, this release also comes with a new feature that allows you to edit your accounts as well as save your favorite addresses as contacts in a new tab called Address Book.
On the tab bar at the bottom of the screen, the third button from left to right will be your Address Book. Tap it and you will be taken to a screen with two tabs: Contacts and Accounts. They operate in a very similar way, listing your contacts or accounts and allowing you to manage them by tapping on the item you wish to interact with. In the case of contacts, you will find a floating button at the bottom of the screen that says Add Contact.
If you have a specific address from a transaction that you would like to store, simply go to your transactions screen, find the one you want and tap on it. You will be taken to the transaction details screen and the address (if the transaction has any) will be displayed at the bottom.
Tapping on one will open a modal where you can select if you would like to simply copy the address or directly save it as a Contact. Both will work but if you choose to copy the address and return to your address book form, tap on the paste button and with the name you have already provided, you will be ready to tap on the ADD button which will then add the Contact to your Contacts List.
Both tabs (Contacts and Accounts) look and feel very similar, with the sole difference that an account can’t be deleted. This contributes to a familiar feeling when using the new features. As well, the new wallet comes with over 100 bug fixes and now translated into five languages: Spanish, Chinese, French, Portuguese and Dutch.
At the moment, the team behind the TronWallet are still doing some evaluations. They are planning to add premium features, a liquidity network with smart contracts, p2p exchange, cashback and rewards programs using a utility token.
