Bitcoin vault service Xapo has launched on mobile with the release of iOS and Android apps. While Xapo already released an earlier unoptimized version of the Android app on Google Play in October, today marks its official launch.

Xapo made a name for itself in the bitcoin world with its cold storage solution, but it also offers wallet functionality. Since the company’s focus is on security, it took a bit longer introducing mobile products to make sure it got things right. Xapo also had to wait out Apple’s own hesitation about allowing bitcoin apps on the App Store.

With the Xapo apps, you’ll be able to move currency from your vault to your wallet, send payments to other addresses, check bitcoin pricing in real-time, send tips via Twitter and manage your Xapo debit card (outside the US only).
