There’s good news for Bitcoin news junkies after CoinDesk, a blog that has become one of the leading sources of information about cryptocurrencies, launched an iOS app.

The app includes the company’s news stories and editorial, and also features its ‘Bitcoin Price Index’, a currency converter and price alert notifications. The latter feature is pretty nifty, and allows you to set an alert for when Bitcoin reaches a certain valuation — great if you are interested in investing when the market dips, or cashing out when it hits a high.


CoinDesk says it is working on an Android app which will arrive in the near future.
