The Dash team is pleased to announce the release of an iPhone wallet for Dash based on the popular Breadwallet for Bitcoin. The wallet is deterministic, meaning that it can be restored just by typing in a passphrase. This keeps your Dash secure without requiring complicated and time-intensive backups. Credit goes to QuantumExplorer , who’s done a superb job developing this wallet.

The Dash wallet also integrates Shapeshift.io, allowing users to scan any BTC address from your Dash Wallet and pay straight with Dash (at your local coffee shop who is accepting BTC or wherever). We got into an agreement with Shapeshift.io and they share part of the fee with the Foundation (no increase in fee, they just share it), so by using this feature you will be supporting Dash in an extra way.

Although the iTunes Store is beginning to let more cryptocurrency apps in, the process is still challenging and subjective. Apple frequently denies new cryptocurrency apps without any stated reason, and unfortunately the Dash wallet was rejected by Apple. QuantumExplorer already appealed their decision, but they haven’t changed their mind yet. This is really frustrating, but we will re apply in the near future when we completely understand the reasons behind their rejection. It is their store and they set the rules, so we can’t really force them to accept us.

Until then, we have a self-compile version of the wallet available right away. This is completely legal and no jailbreaking is needed. tungfa has prepared a nice guide with the steps you need to follow. It is not trivial, but it should not be a problem for a community that has set up almost 3400 masternodes.

Instructions on how to do this are included with the source code.

iPhone – DashWallet v.0.8.8

I don't Iphone but this is great news, we no longer gotta hear the moaning and groaning from the iPhone peeps about how there's no wallet lol.

Congrats to QuantumExplorer for taking that leap (no pun intended) toward making this happen and* congrats to all the others who helped out. Good times people, good times.

the ability to find other Dash users nearby on a map on the app, message them, and trade with them for fiat, leave a rating, is critical for Dash to be successful.

I live in South America where everyone has a smartphone, not many people have computers.

tungfa flare fernando I recreated "localizable" resource and uploaded known translations. They are not perfect (that is true at least for Ru but I guess some other languages might require a review too) but that's what we have from breadwallet source (cloned to dashwallet) and that's something that I guess is better to start with instead of blank strings :)

permission denied! Check restrictions. Happy to do some work on it

.
Hmm... where did you get this message? If you already were in translation team there should be no restrictions for new resource...

I hope that the Dash foundation gets created soon, or I find someone with a Mac. I'm dying to have this app on my shiny new iPhone...
find a Mac guy ! can't be that hard (even in the mountains of Canada ) that foundation name change might still be a while !

By the way - is it safe to install this wallet with stranger's iMacs?
As I understand, in that case 2 devices become linked with 1 common Apple account... and with all that iCloud and so on... is there a chance that the iMac's owner can get access to your DASH wallet backups?
