As we've touched upon elsewhere on our site, the cryptocurrency industry is a young one, having gotten its start back in 2009. Another comparatively young field is that of mobile application development, though it predates digital currency by a few years. Why are we bringing up mobile apps? Well, for one good reason: once digital currency started taking off, the app development industry—which already had a strong start and a loyal and interested customer base—almost immediately started creating mobile device applications for investors in alternative currency.
Investors now have a healthy choice of apps to help them build and maintain their digital currency accounts. Whether you're looking for a mobile wallet that allows you to make purchases quickly and easily when you're out and about, or access to an exchange to help you make trades, or just want statistics and figures to monitor what the market's doing, there's likely to be an app out there that's just what you're looking for. Coin Pursuit is happy to dedicate this section of our site to helping you find the apps that will enrich and support your digital currency investment.
One quick, but important, note: Mobile app developers have encountered a challenge—and a bit of a stumbling block—when it comes to making apps for cryptocurrency. Apple has some strong guidelines for apps listed in its App Store, and some of the most strict are those dealing with third-party payment systems. Since these are important to apps written for alternative currencies, some developers have found their apps rejected outright or pulled from the App Store shortly after release. As a result, some developers have put digital currency apps for iOS on hold until Apple's guidelines change, and some are releasing applications with limited functionality. Still others just aren't bothering for the time being. When you browse for alternative currency apps for Apple devices, you'll see there aren't all that many around, as compared to those for Android—and that's the reason why.
Coin Pursuit will be building up this section of our web page over time to highlight the features and functions of the mobile apps that cater to the digital currency industry and its investors. It's all part of our continuing dedication to bringing you the information and resources that are important to you.
