Summary0007350: user complains about confusing error message "amount invalid"
DescriptionAfter entering an amount of < 1 satoshi, the Android wallet said "amount invalid", which confused the user (so many zeros...).

We should give a better error message, maybe something like "amount too small", when an amount is smaller than the smallest denomination, and maybe something similar if it is not a multiple of the smallest denomination (like if someone tries to enter Pi as an amount...).
TagsNo tags attached.

Where exactly did the user enter the invalid amount? The wallet UI doesn't know about the smallest denomination, thus I suspect the error message coming from wallet-core.
