It’s no secret that cryptocurrency is really big at the moment. More and more people are starting to get into trading, investment, and mining cryptos of all kinds.
A smartphone is an easy and convenient way of accessing the crypto market at all times.
In today’s article, we will be looking into mobile apps that offer services for the crypto user. Some are mobile versions of exchange platforms, wallets, portfolio trackers or managers, and third-party apps/platforms which connect to exchanges.
BTC.com – Bitcoin Wallet
BTC.com is a wallet app which has been lauded for its simple design, strong security, and convenient transfer fees. It is easy to use, making it ideal for Bitcoin beginners and experts alike, and it has features that make it useful. For instance, users are able to transfer Bitcoin via QR code. Users can purchase Bitcoin directly from their wallet, and a master seed backup ensures that the wallet’s data is fully secure and can always be recovered.
This simple tracking app gives you access to the prices of various cryptocurrencies in 14 fiat currencies. Prices are shared in real-time and supplied by CoinMarketCap, ensuring the prices are updated at all times.
The interface is designed based on Google’s Material Design, and though it might have a small number of features, this Android-only app is still a great choice for anyone who just wants a simple app for tracking crypto prices.
Blockchain Wallet is a cryptocurrency wallet app for mobile users. The app includes 20+ currency conversions, the ability to make Bitcoin payments, two-factor authentication, PIN protection, support for 18 languages, QR code support, and TOR blocking. This free and open source wallet is also Material Design and features a relatively simple user interface.
Investing.com has been around for more than a decade, being a favorite among expert traders. The app offers expert advice regarding investments of all kinds, so it makes sense that it would move to cryptocurrency as well.
While the app does not feature wallet functionality, it has one of the amplest databases for tracking the prices of 1,300 altcoins, real-time and historical price tracking, and a full portfolio that allows you to quickly and easily track your earnings.

The Binance mobile is simple to use and it lets users buy, sell, and view their trade history, open orders, and crypto holdings with their total corresponding value in US dollars. Many traders that have used the Binance platform find the app resourceful. However, the app does not feature all the settings and advanced functions that are available on the website.
