Circle *would* be the killer app...but unfortunately, they haven't done anything different.

Here are some killer apps at the moment:

http://breadwallet.com -- full bitcoin client for iOS. (no need for a web service, deterministic wallet, etc.)

https://wallofcoins.com -- Cash deposit to any of the top 10 banks in the USA for bitcoin. Inspired by Bit Instant (remember that?).

I must admit that I am the project leader for Wall of Coins, so this could be biased. If you'd like to discuss Wall of Coins, use this reddit link: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2i6d0e/my_vision_and_passion_over_the_last_2_years/
What they are doing different is the user experience. They are making it so using bitcoin is more user friendly and so you do not need to use complicated programs that has a complex GUI in order to spend and use your bitcoin

Hi -

I don't believe Bitcoin is in need of a killer app.  I belive Bitcoin is in need of a killer incentive.

Without incentive to use the currency in the first place, the general public is never going to use any "killer apps" that become available.

Circle could be the easiest thing ever to hit the Bitcoin space.  If consumers don't give a fuck about Bitcoin, they aren't going to use Circle.

It will simply be a killer app for people already in the Bitcoin ecosystem.

-B-


Agreed! It's up to the specific industries adopting it to give back to the community and provide their own value adding incentives.  But I think apps like Circle bring everything to life and simplify the process.  If your bored check out www.yocrypto.ca. Trying to build a database of marketing material and promotional ideas that encourage crypto accepting businesses to add value to bitcoin purchases. Slowly but surely!

We shall soon see.  Seems pretty killer to me; it's always been a problem to explain how people can buy bitcoins.  Not everybody is comfortable with getting verified, then buying coins on an exchange.  I'm waiting for the app that everyone and their grandmother could use.  Circle might be it.

Coinbase makes it just as easy to buy bitcoin as circle does (with the exception of circle allowing users to use a credit card to buy bitcoin, which is a huge mistake).

The reason that circle could revolutionize bitcoin adoption is that it is seeking to change the user experience when someone uses bitcoin.
