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.
Keep a track on the Bitcoin price wherever you go with Bitcoin Ticker. The Bitcoin Ticker displays the current Bitcoin price in the converted to the currency of your choosing. You can customise it further by selecting a refresh rate and there is a host of different display options available. Also supports Litecoin (LTC).

Sweatcoin cryptocurrency fitness app encourages you to exercise and earn free cryptocurrency as you do. The app tracks your activity using your phone’s GPS location, and converts your steps into Sweatcoins. Sweatcoins can be returned for a wide range of activities and products, from gift cards and yoga classes to Apple watches and magazine subscriptions. The Sweatcoin app is currently available in the US, UK, and Ireland, but if you live outside these countries you can signup on their website to be notified when the fitness and earning app is available for download in your country.
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.
Coming with a ton of downloads and a 4 star rating on Google Play Store, this Bitcoin mining app allows you to earn BTC in return for displaying advertisements on your phone in your downtime. You control when the app is active, and then it begins mining bitcoin. Noted that you will never get rich with this earning bitcoin app, but you maybe be surprised how well it works. Currently only available on Android devices, but checked back for updates.
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.
KryptoGraphe is a cryptocurrency portfolio manager which integrates with your cryptocurrency exchange accounts. Available in 13 languages, KryptoGraphe includes portfolio performance insights, cryptocurrency news, metrics, and market updates. This is a useful tool for anyone who wants to get an overview of the market on the go while keeping on top of their exchange accounts.
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.
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.

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. Get $5 now with promo code : BITCOINCHASER.
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.
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.
The SpectorCoin mobile bitcoin wallet allows you to easy trade, send and receive Bitcoin on the go.

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.”
The Bitcoin exchange app from the company that just secure more than $50 million in funding from companies like Goldman Sachs. Circle allows you to store, access, send, receive, and convert your Bitcoins from your mobile device. You can even create your own QR codes.
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.”
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.
