As programmers and companies move into the market to meet the growing demand, we will have the latest reviews and the best bitcoin apps listed right here for you. Our analysts will take them for a spin and give you all the insights into this incredible developing world. Just scroll down and start picking the ones that fit your needs, read the descriptions and follow our links to download.
Major Bitcoin payment website BitPay is aiming to bring “one-touch” Bitcoin payments to mobile devices, and achieved that through its Bitcoin Checkout app. This app has even allowed Bitcoin users to send BTC donations to the Red Cross in Nepal.
The ultimate mobile Bitcoin marketplace. Send and receive messages to individuals or within groups, put up items for sale and purchase items all from your mobile device or desktop computer. Beyond just a payment app, Gliph aims to revolutionize the mobile cryptocurrency marketplace.
Another app that we checked out recently, and one that is bringing major retailers to Bitcoin. Fold allows users to pay at such stores as Target, Starbucks and Whole Foods using their Bitcoins, right from their mobile device. Overall, the app is still in the process of adding retailers, but once it does, this will be the next big thing in mobile payments.
Finally we have the place to keep and access your Bitcoins from your mobile device. These are some of the best Bitcoin apps out there today.
This app allows you to send and receive Bitcoins in just two clicks. There are absolutely zero fees to use the app, and you can store and access your Bitcoins very easily. Xapo also is the “only fully insured Bitcoin storage solution.”
And we have the Blockchain wallet app – from the company with the most Bitcoin wallets and the incredible security behind it. You can send and receive Bitcoins, view transactions, access 22 different currencies – and it’s all open source. The app can even scan paper wallets and browse for Bitcoin merchants nearby.
All three of the following apps are very cool, innovative and exciting from a Bitcoin community point of view, and they could not be more different.
With Blockfolio you can keep your finger on the pulse of the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency markets. Its many features include detailed price information and alter notifications when the price crosses a certain threshold. This is a perfect tool for anyone keen to follow the cryptocurrency markets in detail, and indispensable if you want trade on them.
As a Bitcoin investment app, Lawnmower aims to help you earn Bitcoins by investing your fiat currency. You login to the app via your Coinbase account, sync your fiat bank account and then it goes to work. The concept is that the app rounds up your purchases to the nearest dollar and takes that pocket change and converts it into Bitcoin. Now instead of dropping a few pennies in the tip jar, you’ll be putting them towards earning cryptocurrency.
The app that pays you to text people. While this app deals with GEMZ as opposed to BTC, the currency is similar in that it is a decentralized cryptocurrency. What is does – whenever you refer someone to the app and that person becomes a new participant, you earn 25 GEMZ, which is roughly equivalent to $0.25 (which could be put into Lawnmower by the way…). You can also transfer crypto funds via the messaging service within the app.
We had to finish with something fun, and what could be more exciting than a mobile game that actually helps you earn Bitcoins?
“Tapping” mobile game based around mining, this particular app is all about making it big with Bitcoins. Tap the screen to earn more coins, upgrade your mining office and become a Bitcoin Billionaire! You know it’s good when a listed feature is to “unlock achievements by being awesome.”
Availability: iPhone and Android
Currently still in Beta, this fighting mobile game pits two fighters against one another for a prize of wagered Bitcoins. You can play via the mobile app, or wager Bitcoins on the various fighters in the tournament from the app’s website. A great feature is that this game is provably fair.
