I hold bitcoin with Coinbase. Attempt to put aside the larger discussion over the long-term safety of trusting any third party with one's bitcoin and I think that Coinbase is a huge step towards opening the door for the not-as-tech-savvy user to obtain, hold, and use bitcoin. I know that this is not new groundbreaking news.

Gliph just released a major update to the iOS app. I'm intrigued about Gliph. It seems to me that the idea and simplicity of it (basically enabling an easy way to text message "money" to someone without a bank involved) is another giant step towards wider-spread adoption. I would like to know opinions or experience regarding the safety of logging into your Coinbase account via the Gliph app, or via Gliph on the web. And I would like to hear your opinion on Gliph in general.

I have yet to actually use Gliph. And I'm not affiliated in any way.

I think the person who started Gliph is a member of this forum, could be wrong. Gliph is fantastic, only improvement I can suggest is they allow for Animated gif to be sent, probably disallowed to cut down on bandwidth.

Never used coinbase with Gliph, probably relatively safe considering it uses coinbase API. I bet you probably can segregate your Bitcoin into multiple accounts on coinbase and only have Gliph be able to use a specific account.

FYI, this might get more traction in the services discussion board.
