Yes, really. After just recently removing Blockchain from the App Store, Apple has approved the first Dogecoin wallet app for the App Store. It’s called MYDOGE, and it’s available free for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches. This is pretty surprising seeing that Apple’s been aggressively removing Bitcoin wallets from the App Store. Why should Dogecoin be treated any differently?
It seems that MYDOGE is a read-only wallet. It can be used to monitor a wallet’s balance, but it CANNOT be used to send or receive DOGE. This might help explain how the app got approved, since it’s not really a wallet in the strictest sense. However, it still makes Apple’s App Store approval process seem inconsistent, and there are no guarantees on how long this app will be available.
MYDOGE also lets users keep up with reddit’s r/dogecoin subredit. So if you use Dogecoin, you might as well download MYDOGE. It’s a decent app and does what it says.
