I've been using this app for a couple of years now. I don't have it running in the back ground much of the time, instead I turn it on whenever I want to check Bitcoin price. It has always worked great. I love how simple and inconspicuous it is. I wish more apps took this laid-back approach.
Excellent. It fulfills reliably. It can be easily deactivated and reactivated. There seems to be a minor bug: when comparing the current value vs. a previous one, the older value is offset by some power of 10 (that is, the decimal point is not in the good position). That's immediately evident so there's no danger, and the relative difference in percentage is not affected.
Only app I own that is so good I actually have bothered to rate it Saved literally thousands of pounds that I would have lost IN MY SLEEP! If you trade or even simply use BTC as an everyday currency - this app is so essential that if it was up to me, BTCparanoid would be included in the bundle of start-up apps already installed on Android devices - after a fresh install/update of the Android OS.
Not enough sources, price not refreshing at chosen time Good idea, but there aren't enough sources. For example, BitcoinAverage is missing from the list. Also I've noticed that no matter what update frequency you use it is never accurate: choosing to update every hour doesn't work, it's more like every 3 hours. Overall very helpful though
Excellent real time BTC alerts that can be set to check prices at set times (every 30 seconds for me). When your specific paranoia price level has been reached, an annoying alert (and /or vibration) of your choice WILL get your attention until you acknowledge it. Love it! Great app!
Multiple useful features This app has come a long way since i last checked it out. BTC price in the drop down notifications, alarm on price fluctuations with adjustable percentage. Good stuff, thank you!
