So I use an iPhone, and I really wanted to get started using bitcoin, and I heard Antonopoulos mention there would be browser based wallets that Apple couldn't stop.
Anyone know anything about CoinPunk? It's open source, apparently.
I guess my question is how secure can something like that really be? What makes it different from a normal bitcoin wallet you'd have on an app or something?
Anyway, I just got my first bitcoin wallet with them. Not overly concerned about its security, considering I have zero munnys.
This is what I give people yeah?

(Watch that actually be my super secret code or something that compromises my millions in bitcoin. Good think I don't have any millions, lol)

I wouldn't use coinpunk, it is a self hosted solution, it has no security audit as I can tell, and one person writing the code is a shill for the foundation so it screams don't use.

Instead try out http://pheeva.com/ it is native iphone wallet, and I been using it with out a problem. It isn't open source so I wouldn't keep more than $50 -$75 in it.

How does that work though? What makes it different from MT GOX? Or is it not an exchange. I'm displaying my ignorance, I know, but that's how we learn right?

Well you should never keep more than you can afford to lose on any software. That is why we have paper wallets. The difference is that the pheeva keys on the on the device, and never touched their server where gox held your private keys to the bitcoins on their server. I have actually talked to the pheeva people and they sound like good people but I hear you. That is why you shouldn't keep more than you can afford to lose on it.
