bitcoin done right
This is the Android port of the breadwallet iOS app, which can be found here.
a completely standalone bitcoin wallet:
Unlike many other bitcoin wallets, breadwallet is a real standalone bitcoin client. There is no server to get hacked or go down, so you can always access your money. Using SPV mode, breadwallet connects directly to the bitcoin network with the fast performance you need on a mobile device.
the next step in wallet security:
breadwallet is designed to protect you from malware, browser security holes, even physical theft. With AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and verified boot, breadwallet represents a significant security advance over web and desktop wallets.
Simplicity is breadwallet's core design principle. A simple backup phrase is
all you need to restore your wallet on another device if yours is ever lost or
broken. Because breadwallet is
deterministic, your balance and transaction history can be recovered from just your backup phrase.
