When Apple updated their App Store review guidelines, it send a massive shockwave of positive energy into the cryptocurrency community, as the guidelines now stated that it was now allowed to use virtual currencies in applications. While at first it was uncertain if it would include the Bitcoin, it was still a major step forward compared to when Apple simply banned all app's involved in cryptocurrency.
Now the first application that uses Bitcoin has been allowed back in and it's the Coin Pocket app, which is a Bitcoin wallet where users can send and receive Bitcoins from their mobile and thus use it to pay with at merchants accepting Bitcoins as a payment method CoinDesk.com reports.
Included in the application is of course your balance, your addresses and saved addresses of users you send coins to on a regular basis. Furthermore the app can access the camera and use it to scan QR codes to easily make payments with merchants or send funds to someone else without making any mistakes in the address.
It will be interesting to see how many more Bitcoin applications and wallets that will emerge in the Apple App Store now, after seeing that Coin Pocket has been allowed back in by Apple.
