Cryptocurrency keeps pervading many aspects of human lives, be it big or small. Payment systems, e-wallets, blockchains used in real-life institutions like healthcare and such – all of it becomes a new reality for us. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that cryptocurrency expanded on mobile apps either. After all, most people take their phones everywhere they go and spend at least some of their time on the web via them.
Knowing that, most crypto developing teams decided to expand their platforms beyond the desktop and to iOS and Android. And we are here to inform you about them and to help you choose the one that would be the best for you. To do that, we’ve compiled not one, but TWO lists of our picks for the top 5 best crypto apps for mobile devices, for Android and iOS respectively. All of that neatly combines in a Top 10.
Now, without further ado, let’s dive into apps that we’ve found for you!
Top 5 Crypto Apps for Android
It is widely believed that Android is a good mobile OS for both tech and crypto enthusiasts, as it allows for a wide variety of modifications to be made. Add to that a big audience, and you’ll have a recipe for great success, to what the following best cryptocurrency apps can attest to. Now, let’s take a look at what we have on our list.
#1. Coinbase Exchange
Coinbase, without a doubt, is one of the most famous cryptocurrency companies out there. So it shouldn’t surprise you at all that they have an Android app, as well as a desktop one. It allows you to sell, buy, and exchange your crypto, be it a Bitcoin or another one from more than 120 coins that they have on their roster. It also allows you to close your account should your device be stolen, wish is a great security addition. All in all, Coinbase is one of the best cryptocurrency apps out there, and for a good reason too.
CEX.IO is another great mobile crypto app, that also comes in a desktop variety. It allows you to buy, store and exchange your crypto at a reasonable fee, as well as to buy crypto for fiat currencies (USD, GBP, Euro, and Ruble). While it might not be as versatile as Coinbase, it holds itself good and is definitely an app to take a look at.
Sure, you might think us a little biased in regards to our own mobile apps, but as it happens, Changelly offers both good service and a wide array of available assets. It doesn’t work as a wallet, being strictly an exchange platform, but it allows you to buy, sell, and exchange 150+ various cryptos and tokens. With those numbers, it is one of the most versatile mobile apps on our list, with even Coinbase not being able to keep up with it.
Coins.ph is the first full-on crypto wallet mobile app on our list. Basically, it allows you to store your cryptocurrencies in peace, but it also comes with some features allowing trading, as well as buying gift cards from merchants and paying your bills. Currently, it has 120+ options to choose from, and supports Bitcoin (BTC), Etherium (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Ripple (XRP). As you can see, while it is a crypto wallet, it also combines in itself quite a number of features, and that number keeps expanding constantly.
This mobile crypto app is something that every serious crypto trader will want on their side. It doesn’t specialize in a single one feature, opting instead to include a wide variety of them. Among these features are: storing more than 140 cryptos, exchanging them in quick order, and allowing its users to embed their widget on their websites so that they could receive payments in cryptocurrency. As you can see, Criptonator is a good app for users who closely works with and receives payments in the form of cryptocurrency.
While even the best crypto apps had difficulties at first on iOS, those times have long passed. Now, Apple devices have a wide range of applications for every crypto enthusiast out there. Do you need a wallet, a payment app, an exchange, or something entirely else? Chances are, you will find something for your iOS device.
#1. Coinbase Exchange
As it was mentioned in the previous section, Coinbase is one of the most popular cryptocurrency apps in the market. This statement holds for iOS as well. Currently, it holds the second place in the AppStore search for ‘Cryptocurrency’, stepping down only for CoinCap. As an iOS app, Coinbase offers the same range of features as its Android counterpart: you can buy, sell, and trade multiple cryptos through it (there are 120+ available on the list), it has the same security, which adds to the already formidable one that Apple devices share. All in all, it is a solid choice of a mobile crypto app no matter what device you use.
While this app takes the first place in the AppStore search for ‘Cryptocurrency’, we moved it to the second place since it doesn’t really work for Android, so it isn’t as accommodating as Coinbase. Nevertheless, CoinCap is a great app that allows crypto users, miners, and owners to track the price of their currency. With a wide array of indicators, it would be as useful to experienced traders as to crypto reviewers and analysts. It has its flaws as well, though, since the alert system is really stifling and you can’t change its parameters freely. So, while it allows you to watch crypto price fluctuations in real-time, it is also not the best tool to use with highly volatile currencies.
Pretty much as we couldn’t avoid speaking about it in the Android section, we can’t skip Changelly on the iOS market as well. While it doesn’t have the biggest following, Changelly works and offers the same amount of features to its iOS users, as it does to its Android audience. Namely, you can buy, sell, and exchange more than 150 cryptos and tokens on the fly by using Changelly iOS mobile app for your crypto management. And, the same as with the Android version of it, Changelly offers one of the biggest crypto catalogs to choose from among other apps on the AppStore.
Delta is a good free app that works the best synergistically with other cryptocurrency apps since it allows you to track your crypto exchanges and transactions. You need only to enter the trading pair, price, and name of the exchange itself. After doing that, you will be able to find your transaction, and its status just by using your iPhone (or any other iOS mobile device, really).
Another one among tracking cryptocurrency apps, CoinDex allows its users to track their crypto portfolio, as well as their transactions and exchanges. After choosing from the list of supported coins and/or tokens, you users can find out the status of their transaction and plan ahead. It would also be of use to traders, as it allows them to create the list of their investments and to keep track of possible profit and/or loss in the last 24 hours. What’s more, and it is certainly important to crypto traders, it keeps tabs on any forthcoming or ongoing ICO.
With all of that said and done, you can choose what coins and/or tokens buy and use for yourself, and what apps you want to buy, control, store, trade, and sell them with. Just remember, here at Changelly, you can always buy and exchange your crypto whenever you want.
As you can see, both types of devices have a vast and exhaustive number of crypto apps to suit their needs. What we’ve listed here is only the tip of the iceberg, so even if there isn’t anything you like, you can always find it by searching directly. After all, last time I checked, there were more than 250 crypto apps on Google Play alone! So it is almost assured that you will find something that you will find useful and will suit your needs.
It also should be noted that the numbers of such apps, as well as their quality, keep improving all the time. New functions are added, something new is discovered or developed that sets off a new trend, and so on, and so on. So, if you are interested in the topic, always keep an ear to the ground, as changes in the crypto world happen fast, and the mobile crypto apps scene is no different there. With that being said, we hope that you will find something that will catch your eye in our list. Stay tuned for more!
