this looks wonderful. I'll beg for you to add a bump feature!

Why am I paying two fees? What is the relay fee?

The relay fee is ostensibly a fee being charged by the maker of the app who is running a "relay server" to do the work of actually communicating with other bitcoin nodes and holding a copy of the full block chain, and perhaps digesting and filtering the block chain so that the client can download only the transactions it cares about, rather than downloading everything and throwing the unwanted portion out.


Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Is the connection between you (the server) and the client SSL-secured with static cert to prevent MITM attacks? I don't want anyone to find out which addresses I own...

This is a great step towards using bitcoin on the iPhone.  I have tested putting coins on the phone and that worked great, havent tried sending them yet, hopefully that is working ok.

Have you got any feedback from Apple re approval for the App Store?

Any chance of implementing some QR code scanning? Smiley

Thanks for all your encouragement and advice.

The App Store's reviewer didn't know much about how to get bitcoins. So I re-submitted btc express app with some detailed instructions. Now, waiting for review, again.

'A bump feature' seems more interesting and convenient than QR code. Both are on the way Wink

I really thought about it and there is nothing coming to my mind why clearly to reject such an app regarding the idea and the common known objections of apple.

There should not be any money without fee for apple in apps. Ok, but the txfee in BTC is first optional and secondly not "money" but product. Or does the definition of money not affect apple :\

After all it might be that they doan need a reason to reject  Embarrassed

If they reject it, are you gonna publish elsewhere?


But we all hope und root for you and your app.

Apple rejected it again for the same reason, law issue.

Binary Rejected Aug 25, 2011 04:58 PM
Reasons for Rejection:
22.1: Apps must comply with all legal requirements in any location where they are made available to users. It is the developer's obligation to understand and conform to all local laws
Aug 25, 2011 04:58 PM. From Apple.
22.1

We found that your app contains content related to bitcoins - or facilitates, enables, or encourages an activity - that is not legal in all the locations in which the app is available, which is not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines.

We encourage you to review your app concept and evaluate whether you can incorporate different content and features that are in compliance with the Guidelines.

To appeal this review, please submit a request to the App Review Board.

This truly sucks, and highlights the major problem with the Apple ecosystem.

Whats your plan for BTC Express? Will we see updates on git-hub for those who run it jailbroken?

Do you have any other options for getting it in the app store?

I changed the app available location to Japan, and sent an appeal request to App Review Board.
If Bitcoin Express can't win this "legal or not" argument, it will be ported to Macs and PCs and open-sourced on git-hub.

So is it now at git-hub available?
Could you post a link here?
Is it open source now and somebody could pick up this great project?

No longer working?  This project could revolutionize the bitcoin world forever, someone plz continue this and make it Android compatible!

edit: commented before reading Apple's rejection.  I think the big companies are truly afraid of bitcoin if they are calling it "illegal"!
