Coinbase, one of the world’s leading Bitcoin exchange and Bitcoin payment system providers, announced today that they have acquired Andrew Vilcsak’s iOS application and taken over the development of it. The application will become the official Coinbase app, using Coinbase’s open-source code base.
Coinbase will be releasing an update to the application shortly, but customers can already download the existing version now, which has the features one need. All you need to find the app is to search for “Coinbase” in the Apple App Store or use this link to get started.
This is great news for those who wants to be able to use their mobile for Bitcoin use, without having to trust an unknown company. Coinbase has proven to be one of the most trusted Bitcoin exchange sites in the world, having avoided any hacking and cash out issues throughout their history.
