"Volatility makes money"

Reviewed by / Oct 21, 2013

Bitcoin Paranoid shows the current Bitcoin value in different currency in the notification bar

You have some bitcoins, right? Then you know how volatile that Internet currency can be. The best way to secure your deposits in bitcoins and even make some money is knowing how its value evolve. And the best way to keep you up-to-date about it is Bitcoin Paranoid.

It shows the exchange value of Bitcoin for up to 25 currencies. Choose the one you prefer and set how you want to be notified where a change comes up. Thus, form settings you can start/stop notifications, set the interval update (10s, 1min, 15min, 1h) and the data sources of information (Mt.Gox, btc-e and bitstamp). In addition, you can set an alarm for value checkpoints or differential percentage and assign sound, vibration and more aggressive alert like the "annoying mode".

In a nutshell, Bitcoin Paranoid is a simple yet helpful app to keep up-to-date about the value change of the most-known Internet currency. A must-have if you have a respectable Bit-bankroll.

Developer's original description available here
This app shows the current Bitcoin value in the notification bar.

Now we do support alarm! :)

If you "bitcoin paranoid" this app is for you. This is NOT a widget, nor is it a standard app. This app starts a service that keeps the latest Bitcoin value in the *notification bar*.

You can tap the notification and disable the service at any time. But if you are a Bitcoin addict, you probably won't do that.

    One thing I'd like to see is being able to set alarms for specific price points. Everything else is great.

    Simple no frills app. This is now the only bitcoin app I keep on my phone after removing the bloated zeroblock. However it would be nice to have more control over the alarm checkpoints and set my own percentages/intervals. Is this hard to do?

    Simple interface. I could set it and forget it. Price is always available in notification bar, timely. I just would like to have more control over alarm checkpoint and sensibility. Still 5 stars.

    I trade Bitcoin for a living and this is by far the best app any trader would need. Love the alerts and also how I can set to never turn off unless I see them. The constant price updates on the top of my device is also wonderful to have. If your at all into Bitcoin trading, this app is a must have!
