Kraken Windows Phone 8

There are a handful of exchanges out there if you’re looking to trade your local currency with an electronic currency like Bitcoin. Coinbase and MtGox are two of the most popular Bitcoin exchanges, but there are a quite a few others if you want choice. Kraken ( is one of those exchanges and there’s a new app by the same name in the Windows Phone Store to keep you posted to current rates for various cryptocurrencies.

This is an unofficial app that does one thing and one thing well – keeps you informed on the current market rate for currencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Namecoin and others. You can view the exchange rate for those currencies against others like the US Dollar and Euro.

Need some more Bitcoin apps? We covered one called Blockchain back in the summer that brought wallet integration. You can also use Bitcoin to purchase items in the Windows Phone Central Store.

The app is free (no ads) and available for folks on Windows Phone 8. The developer does include his Bitcoin address so you can send donations if you’re interested. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store or use the QR code below.
