Bitsnapp - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have been very passionate about developing since I was a child.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

I don't feel like picking out a single aspect as the most challenging: this app is the result of countless hours of hard work and I encountered many problems. I decided to let users sync their holdings using exchanges APIs, I could have used a server to do that, as it would have been much easier, but I preferred to build a more secure app that was also privacy-friendly. The same goes for address tracking and mining pools sync, so I'd say one of the most challenging part of developing this app was finding an efficient way to sync data, keeping it consistent while offering a smooth user experience focused on privacy and security.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

There really isn't any app that stands out, but I am a fan of apps with a smooth UX. That's also what I tried to do with Bitsnapp, I wanted to make an app that could become my favorite.

How long have you been working on this app?

I started in early October and I spent many hours a day working on it.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

The app started out as a personal project, because I needed it. I got interested in cryptocurrencies and I needed an app to track them, as there was no existing app having all the features I needed at the same time.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Building a better app has always been the main goal and the reason I started, I didn't really like existing apps because they were limited, didn't offer enough features and you had to manually add your transactions every time, not to mention the privacy and security issues. I decided to make an app that could import your balance automatically from 20+ exchanges, track 50+ addresses and sync mining pools, I wanted to press a button and have everything synced. I also needed charts, so I added line/candlestick charts for each coin and pie/bar charts to get an overview of my portfolio. I wanted to stay up to date with news, so I added a news section that I could use to quickly find interesting articles from different news sources, including Reddit. I added notifications, so I could get alerts when coins were moving. I also wanted it to be more secure than other apps, that's why users data is only saved on their own devices. I added a pin lock with fingerprint support and a feature to hide the balance because I wanted users to feel safe while using it.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

The app just got out of beta, this means that I can now focus on adding new features and improving existing ones. I plan to make a survey soon, to better understand features priorities and give users a way to express their needs. I expect to keep adding features to improve the app, I just need to understand what my users want me to focus on right now.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Feedback is always appreciated and I try to give as many ways as possible for them to contact me. There is a subreddit dedicated to Bitsnapp (, a Discord server ( and they can also send emails at [email protected], use the bug report form or follow me on twitter:
