Bitfinex introduces newly updated Bitfinex app

On October 30, a crypto exchange Bitfinex introduced a newly updated Bitfinex app for traders. The exchange’s team has fully rewritten the existing Bitfinex app to support the latest iOS and Android native features, as well as mimic a similar functionality as the website.

The exchange’s team created two landing pages, one for trading and one for funding. On each page, favorites and the page’s respective unfiltered widgets are shown. For each page, the user may customize which widget is shown.

Because the Bitfinex website is table oriented — lots of columns spread wide across the screen. The team writes that this wide user experience is not native friendly given the vertical aspect of phones, so they now consider your phone size and calculate all the columns into a horizontal scroll view. So whether your phone is vertical or horizontal, or you have iPhone 5 or iPad, you will never see columns bunching up.

The announcement reads that if you have multiple phones, or maybe an additional tablet, your settings will persist across all your devices.

Additionally, iPhone X and other phones with “notches” are now supported in the app.

The new app also includes tablet support, biometric identification (users can now unlock the app with their fingerprint or face), as well as blue, white, and black themes.

All features from the old app carry over to this new app, so users don’t need to worry about missing features.

To make sure that the app works nicely across all phones and operating systems before publicly releasing, Bitfinex offers a quick beta. If someone wants to participate, he/she can use the Google form given in Bitfinex’ Medium post.

  1. Trading app requires constant updates. It’s good that bfx understands this fact and makes its app more and more efficient.

  2. As for me, applications can replace official web-sites of different platform, finex felt that tendency and want to be the first one obviously

  3. Those updates for Bitfinex application are made with the only one purpose – optimization, glad to see that this application will claim to be the best

  4. The App is in its working order now – that’s good that Bitfinex made these upgrades.

  5. I’ve just checked what finex made with past bugs and they really disappeared, that’s exactly what was needed.

  6. Convenience is the main idea in the app, no one would use a mobile app which isn’t fast, comfortable to use and bulky, the company feels that

  7. isnt a big update, again Bitfinex gets an update which is quite small but one by one and the whole picture becomes better, isn’t that so?

  8. I’ve noticed more and more people relying on this app, and that is rather sensible, there has been quite a lot of work done on it, after all

  9. Right now Bitfinex app runs fairly well, I would like it to be improved further, but I imagine that it is only a matter of time

  13. What else can be added to the application now to make it better? I feel like every patch finalizes the app development, but I’m proven wrong with a new bunch of additions every time

  14. Okay, now I feel like posting my own patch suggestions on Bfx channel, maybe that’ll even be used as base for a future app patch, that would be sweet

  15. I don’t know what else Bitfinex can offer in new version because this on came up great!

  18. The company can make better even such things which are already so like its app foe example

    1. Speaking from experience here – its been a lovely application patch, the quality standard is still upheld by Bfx, all is well in short

      1. Now that is a welcome bunch of additions, Bitfinex should keep seeking the minor points to enhance so that the overall experience gets better

  20. Bitfinex do everything to be the best and even now they continue to upgrade its app
