Bitcoin Meum - Windows Phone wallet & multi-purpose app

Windows Phone Store direct link:

Short intro

The intention

After visiting Paralelni Polis's Bitcoin-only coffee bar with couple of friends and me being the only person to use Windows Phone I had to ask one of my friends (who experienced bitcoin payment for first time) to buy drinks for me as there was no Bitcoin Wallet in Windows Phone Store.
And that made me feel really weird.

Current WP Bitcoin wallets

Kronolab's Bitcoin wallet (test-net only)

Miguel Rachefort's Bitcoin (hidden from store due to Microsoft certification policies OR outdated Blockchain API usage)

Why

  • Personal use
  • Community expansion
  • Does Microsoft allow Bitcoin wallets in its Stores? Nobody really knows
  • Windows Phone has roughly above 3% market share of Smartphone OS. It is uncomparable to Android's 80% but it is still large portion of cell phones running this OS and bitcoin should be easily available to anyone no matter what device they use.

Here is what I come up with after several days of coding Windows Phone Bitcoin wallet & multi-purpose application

Features

  • Fully open source
  • Blockchain.info API dependant
  • Ad-free
  • (sadly) So far the only Windows Phone Bitcoin Wallet that is send and receive compliant

Wallet

  • Import Public key for watch-only wallet
  • Import Private key for fully working light-wallet relying on Blockchain API !please mind that Private key is always exposed in URL when API for output transaction is made!
  • Balance check
  • Balance to USD
  • QR payment request
  • Balance on live tile

Market rates
  • Bitstamp ticker
  • Btc-e ticker
  • Data on live tile

Bitcoin news RSS feeds
  • r/bitcoin
  • CoinDesk

Miscellaneous
  • QR Balance scanner

Enjoy!
