Easy to use and hides most of the complexity of bitcoin from the users. The only thing you need to remember is the pin as the wallet is linked to your phone number. Great for small amounts and for people who are overwhelmed with the complexity of bitcoin.

Do you really think thats secure to link your bitcoin wallet with mobile phone PIN when there are wallets that don't require to link anything?  Huh

I think they are using the phone number as your wallet. So if you lose your phone you still use the same phone number to get your bitcoins.

Why does a Bitcoin wallet need access to my Identity, Contacts, SMS, Call information...?

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

I believe to access contacts for sending btc to and for verifying transactions since your phone number is your wallet.

The person, who is willing to give out so much info for a transaction will be better off with FIAT.

I noped when I saw that myself. It was incompatible with my primary device but does run on my tablet. There are much better apps that require less info.

I tried their app. It is faulty.
Scanned in a QR code to send btc to another wallet, and guess what - the app crashed (several times) the btc disappeared and
the app left absolutely no log of any transaction. dont use it, im concerned that transactios are off blockchain.
