Circle has been investing heavily in its mobile apps as it tries to lead the growing industry. The apps allow you to store bitcoin, send money to friends and pay for merchandise. Earlier this year, it added near field communications (NFC) support for its Android app, and made its iOS version available for Apple’s Smartwatch.
Circle’s app was recognized alongside Evernote, Tumblr, the New York Times, and BuzzFeed for their respective categories.
To celebrate the achievement and further promote its app, Circle is rewarding new users $5 of bitcoin for trying it out.
