Breadwallet Goes Android
Two years ago, Breadwallet debuted for iOS users through the App Store in June of 2014. Since then the wallet has gained attention and a good reputation for being a secure Bitcoin wallet that connects to the network without relying on central servers. This has provided Breadwallet users the ability to manage their funds on their own, and the company says thousands of people have “started their Bitcoin journey with Breadwallet and have remained as loyal users ever since.”
Since the Apple release, many Android users have been asking the firm when the app will be available for their OS. The company knows that Android users greatly outnumber those using iOS, and most companies want to maximize their success by supporting both platforms.
