CoinJar is relaunching its iOS App following Apple’s recent App Store policy update, which appeared to permit apps transmitting bitcoins.
CoinJar is an Australia-based app which lets you store and send bitcoins. According to their site, they have over 22,000 users and have processed over $40 million worth of transaction over the past year.
The app was first relaunched in Australia and the U.K. It is also being supported in at least 19 other countries.

Reaction in the Bitcoin world is positive. Key figures are weighing into news of the first app to return since the policy shift. It is being considered by some as a significant turning point for Bitcoin. Barry Silbert of SecondMarket tweeted:
Others, however, are wondering when an Android app would be available. One would think this should be easier since Android has always been allowing apps transmitting bitcoins. They would also reach a greater audience, as Android is expected to own 80% of all mobile operating systems by the end of this year.
Others are using this development as yet another confirmation that the Bitcoin price will keep rising. Today, it spike over 3% in a short period when further indications of mainstream acceptance surface with John Donahoe’s latest comments on Bitcoin.
