A friend of mine uses GreenAddress, and he has often boasted on how perfect its working may be you should give it a try.

Never heard about this one. Been using blockchain from the start.

Blockchain has some nice features on it.  Such as finding places that take BTC.

I would not use a mobile wallet for big amounts of bit coin but spending money.
Right, the Android platform has lots of malware on it. For big amounts use another storage  Smiley

+1. Yeah it is very dangerous. If you are using, make a back up, so that the BTC can be recovered if the phone is lost and also don't ever root your phone. If your phone is rooted, AVG should be installed and if it report any app, then read it carefully and if it access home directory, uninstall it ASAP.

For blockchain.info mobile wallet, you can still get backup or move your coins directly on the blockchain.info website once your phone is lost.

Of course you still have to do it quick because there is only a 4-digit PIN protection of your blockchain.info Android wallet and it won't take too long for the new owner to crack it if he wants to.  Grin

I dont use any btc wallet apps but i use coinbase on my android phone just for very small amounts when i go out.
Also use blockchain and anthing over 1btc would go into cold storage.
I would look at what premissions the app ask for before downloading one.

I don't use coinbase. It is not really a "wallet" at all. It is just an online account to store some btc.

But yes it is wise to look at what permissions required before using any Android app. Nowadays most Android apps require a long list of permissions that seem to be too excessive for me.

I'm currently using Mycelium as my mobile wallet, and so far the user-end experience is smooth and flawless, but because it uses a centralized service by default, I have to trust them to not hide or simulate payment.

This also let's us support HD wallets that take a few seconds to sync instead of 20+ minutes that your criteria would require, and will allow us to implement CoinJoin by default, since we have servers where user's wallets can announce intentions to spend and mix, which is not possible without a server. Once we add Tor and CoinJoin support, there will be no way for us to know who you even are, so no way to know whom to hide or simulate payments for.

How about running your own bitcoind and access it via bitcoin-js-remote (Android and iPhone)?

It is good but the problem is it might be hard for newbies. Mycelium or Bitcoin Wallet is the best option for newbies. Roll Eyes
