Bitcoin Payment Apps
This isn’t just about making payments with your Bitcoins (ok fine, one of them is) but rather more about retail and the Bitcoin community in general.
The BitPay personal app is on the surface of it is a Bitcoin wallet, but it also has a great options for Bitcoin payments. You can load the BitPay Visa Card with cash from your BitPay personal wallet in seconds, which you can use at any VISA-accepting retailer or ATM across the globe. You can also buy Amazon giftcards
The flip side to the BitPay wallet, the BitPay Checkout app allows retailers, restaurants and businesses to accept Bitcoin payments. Available on both iOS and Android devices, the BitPay Checkout app allows users to accept Bitcoin payments which convert directly to their local currency. It can be easily customized to accept tips and pairs with the BitPay software on PoS systems.
Spare allows bitcoin holders to turn their bitcoin into cash quickly and conveniently. To do so, they go around the ATM system. Users request cash and they get a barcode that they can take to a local shop close to where they are. The shop keeper scans the code and gives the Spare user cash in exchange. Spare also works with traditional currency, eliminating the need for an ATM altogether.Read our full Spare review.
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. The app is not available on either the Google Play Store or the Apple Store, but you can sign up and start using the app via their website.
Bitcoin Wallet Apps
Finally we have the place to keep and access your Bitcoins from your mobile device. These are some of the best Bitcoin wallet apps out there today.
This is the Bitcoin wallet from the company with the most digital Bitcoin wallets and a great track record of security. You can send and receive Bitcoins, view transactions, access 22 different currencies – it’s all open source and incredibly easy to use. The app can even scan paper wallets and browse for Bitcoin merchants nearby.

Bitcoin Game Apps
We had to finish with something fun, and what could be more exciting than a mobile game that actually helps you earn Bitcoins?
Bitcoin Billionaire is a ‘tapping’ mobile game based around mining. The goal of the game is to make it big with Bitcoin. Create your character, mine Bitcoin by tapping the screen, and upgrade your mining equipment and office as you progress. You cannot actually earn any Bitcoin form this app, but its creative, fun and addictive. You know it’s good when a listed feature is ‘unlock achievements by being awesome.’
The Free Bitcoin app is a Bitcoin faucet that allows you to claim up to 5000 Satoshi every hour by playing a simple game and watching ads. While the app’s website claims you can make 3000-5000 Satoshi, from our experience it can be anything as low as 1 Satoshi. Nevertheless, this game works and comes with good reviews on the Google Play store. Hook up your Bitcoin wallet to withdraw the Satoshi earned. Developer Website
Bitcoin Aliens is an addictive little game that is much like a classic Nintendo game. The bonus? You can earn small amounts of Satoshi for completing stages. Each stage has 8 levels which get progressively harder, and each level gives you 5 attempts to complete it. Failing is no big deal as you can always try again after a short advert and your progress will be saved. The drawbacks? The app a little difficult to navigate and the only way to withdraw any Satoshi you earned is limited to Coinbase. Dont expect to become a Bitcoin millionaire playing this, but if you want to play a fun game and be rewarded in Satoshi, go for it!
