Bitfinex Crypto Exchange Upgrades Mobile iOS and Android Application with New Features
Bitfinex, the well-known and trusted crypto exchange, has just unveiled its new, user-friendly mobile app. The primary aim for the app is to offer better user experience to users, and it will support the latest iOS and Android features. Besides being more convenient for end users, the app will deliver a similar or better experience that resembles the one that is accessible through the Bitfinex official desktop website.
Features of the New App
In the app announcement that was distributed through the company’s official blog, the developers revealed a host of new features that the app will have. Here is an overview of some of the notable features to expect from the new Bitfinex app:
- iPhone X support
- Unified settings throughout all mobile systems and devices
- Responsive widgets
- Secure biometric identification
Bitfinex Targeting Casual Users of Cryptocurrencies
The user-friendly app now has a handy quick view feature that allows users to choose between either funding or trading landing pages, depending on their needs. The widgets are also fully customizable and can either be switched off or on. Also, the widgets are highly responsive and will resize automatically based on the screen size of the client’s mobile device. With this new app, it seems that Bitfinex is targeting everyone to bring them into the cryptocurrency world, specifically casual or interested users.
All these intuitive features are critical for solving significant UX problems that were experienced with the earlier app. Many users had complained that the previous application was not well optimized for their mobile devices. A common complaint was that the use of horizontally-spreading tables was affecting the quality of display when used on vertical smartphone screens. Fortunately, all these issues have been comprehensively addressed with this recent update.
Besides the range of new features, the Bitfinex app will now offer a unified array of persistent app settings that will remain constant throughout all the devices that a client uses for trading. That means that people with other phones or tablets do not have to keep customizing the app every time they move to a different device. Once you have set the persistent settings, they will remain the same on each device you own, thus making things a lot easier for many traders who work across multiple devices.
On the security side, the app has been strengthened to protect client data. A significant addition on this security factor is the biometric identification feature. Users will now use either their fingerprint or face for unlocking and using the app.
Bitfinex reiterated that they would carefully listen to the community to decide their future development plans for continuously improving the app. That will mean taking regular polls to ensure that the app is providing value to its users. Some of the projects that will be up for voting include customized notifications systems to allow customizable push notifications, improved user-interface customization like widget and column priority, scaled orders and integrating Honey Framework among others. Other plans included proposed EOSfinex and Ethifinex versions and various types of price alerts.
