9 Mobile Apps for Cryptocurrency Traders

There are hundreds of cryptocurrency apps that you can run on Android or iOS and other operating systems and they offer various benefits. The type of application to install depends on your trading and crypto monitoring needs.

Some allow just real-time monitoring of cryptocurrency prices, others allow real-time monitoring and trading, and yet others allow management of data and information including trading information for purposes of identifying future trends and price movements.

Many applications not only allow you to trade Bitcoin and altcoins, but also offer charts, analysis (technical indicators), and news feeds from various sources to track community and public sentiments. Many also offer price alerts and you can set up notifications to know when to sell or buy once the price reaches a certain level.

It is also important to think of an app that will offer advanced security options, including such as locking access to the app if the mobile device is lost. Some also do not store user funds or offer withdrawal as a safety precaution. Others offer encryption and other methods to secure data and information.

Below some of those applications below.
