SpectroCoin, a bitcoin and cryptocurrency wallet app has announced a new and improved version for iOS. Those running iOS 7.0 or later can now find the updated version in the app store.
Besides bug fixes, the new 1.4.0 app version offers enhanced security and user experience, more deposit options, and new features and support for iPhone X.
In addition to Bitcoin (BTC) support, the upgraded SpectroCoin payment app now offers the possibility of sending and receiving Ethereum (ETH), NEM (XEM) and Dash (DASH).
Beyond new crypto asset capabilities, the app features enhanced security. Before, for users to protect their iOS device, they could choose to add a passcode in addition to their SpectroCoin login details, such as email and unique password. Now, after the latest SpectroCoin iOS app update, the passcode feature is no longer just optional, but mandatory. Moreover, users have limited attempts to input the correct passcode to prove they are the owner of the account.
Another update allows users to buy bitcoin and other tokens by linking a credit or debit card. Deposits via debit and credit cards are instant and can be used for the purchase of over 20 types of crypto and fiat currencies straight from the mobile app.
Additionally, Euro bank account users can load their SpectroCoin blockchain wallet in a secure and reliable way by transferring money via SEPA bank transfers. SEPA transfers are supported among member states of the European Union (or Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, Monaco, San Marino and Liechtenstein) and typically take between 1 to 3 days.
The SpectroCoin team has also added a new feature that helps refresh the balance page with a single pull. Simply pull a finger down across the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and the app will then check the latest SpectroCoin blockchain wallet balance.
Additional new features of the latest SpectroCoin iOS app:
- Users are now able to access their International Bank Account Number (IBAN) details straight from the app. This allows you for IBAN account history as well as personal International Bank Account Number itself so you can be used for making and receiving payments in Euros on the go.
- Addition of new features for easier user registration and login. Before new users could only register to SpectroCoin using the web version of the page, now new users can simply sign up at SpectroCoin via the app.
- Support of login via 1Password and LastPass. If a user owns any of these password managers, they can log in to the SpectroCoin bitcoin payment app by tapping on the “Lock” icon on the login screen and imputing the “Master password” of the password manager app. With this, users do not have to remember their unique SpectroCoin account password anymore but can still keep their account secure.
Even with all the new capabilities, users can still make use of the older functionalities of the app, such as checking balances of SpectroCoin blockchain wallets, exchanging between different currencies, editing profile information, checking the SpectroCoin news feed, frequently asked questions (FAQ) section and more.
