We’re incredibly excited to announce our latest major update to the CoinJar app for iOS!
Back in 2015 we released the original CoinJar app at the start of the cryptocurrency revolution. We were the first Bitcoin app to return to the App Store following their change in stance on crypto apps, and to this day we remain one of the only Australian digital currency exchanges to provide native apps for both iOS and Android.
In the four years that have followed, the CoinJar platform has grown and evolved alongside the cryptocurrency industry. To help accommodate the many new features and cryptocurrencies we’ve introduced since then, we’ve taken this opportunity to rebuild our app from the ground up — a new, intuitive interface to better suit the way you can manage your digital currency profile today.
A better experience
The new tab bar running across the bottom of the screen is where you’ll find the ‘Home’ tab which shows you the most important information in one central location. Real-time prices, your individual currency accounts and your total portfolio value — you’ll find it all here.
We’ve also introduced a contextual ‘Quick Action’ bar at the top of the home tab to make sending, converting or depositing as quick as possible. In the coming months this will be updated to allow you to customise the quick actions you want to keep in this section.
Buying & selling
The confirmation screen will now show you a summary breakdown of the rates and fees involved in the transaction before you buy bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. You can now simply swipe to confirm your transactions.
Historical information will now be more easily accessible with each account having a clear transaction history, which includes the rate at the time of the transaction. We have also made it easier to share your payment receipts with others. After every transaction you will receive a receipt confirming the amount sent and the recipient’s details, with information being easily shareable all from within the app.
Safe, secure & fast payments
You can now generate wallet addresses and QR codes for all of our supported digital currencies within the app, allowing you receive funds quickly and securely from any sender. As always, sending payments to other CoinJar members incurs no payment fee if you send to their CoinJar username.
It’s also possible to add and manage your CoinJar’s SMS or TOTP authenticators all from within the app. If your device supports it, you can use either Touch ID or Face ID to securely authorise payments from your device.
Other features & improvements
- Price alerts
Get a push notification for daily prices updates at your preferred times, and set threshold price alerts to notify you when the price for any of our supported currencies goes above or below a certain amount.
