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.
