In an announcement Xapo Bitcoin Wallet said that its services are now available for iPhone users as they can now download the mobile app in the App Store. The company says that this is a step towards bringing a convenient, seamless way to secure and manage Bitcoin from iPhone to the users who wish to have safe and secure Bitcoin storage.
According to a source from the company, the Xapo app combines the convenience of an everyday Bitcoin wallet with the state-of-the-art security of the Xapo Vault. He said, “We believe our industry-leading security should be accessible to everyone, and with our new iPhone and updated Android apps.”
He further said, “We put the Fort Knox of Bitcoin storage directly into your pocket. The apps marry our deep commitment to security with our ongoing mission of making Bitcoin more accessible for all via an intuitive and easy-to-use app.” Coming from the company that believes that Bitcoin’s ultimate success will be based on trust, this is a welcome gesture.
The company says that now both iPhone and Android users can easily send Bitcoin to any address (with no Bitcoin network fees), move Bitcoin to and from their Xapo Vault, and connect directly to their Xapo Debit Card (where available), all with Xapo’s bank-level security. Thus, transferring Bitcoin would not just be easy but fast as well.
Building Trust is the Focus
According to a Xapo representative, the app will also feature opt-in real-time SMS / push notification alerts of activity as well as real-time Bitcoin pricing. Transactions are synced across devices in real-time and support second factor authentication. He says the company is proud to continue to help lay the infrastructure for global adoption of Bitcoin with its secure, convenient mobile apps.
He further added that the apps are available for free in the Apple App Store and Google Play. As the firm believes that Bitcoin’s ultimate success will be based on trust whether individuals trust the digital currency’s stability and whether they trust the industry’s security, the firm is all set to make decisions that help users.
Xapo believes that as it has assembled a team of financial services and security experts to build an entirely new Bitcoin storage experience and offering two distinct products i.e. an easy access wallet and a locked-down vault, they’re marrying the convenience Bitcoin users want for everyday needs with the security they require for confident Bitcoin saving.
