A Dutch app has become the first to allow users to directly trade Bitcoins from their Windows Phone.

The app originally only allowed users to monitor the Kraken Bitcoin Exchange, but a new update now allows users to place Bitcoin purchases directly from the app.

While there are many Bitcoin apps on Android Apple has famously refused to allow any Bitcoin apps in the iPhone app store.

imageThe app lets you monitor Kraken’s rates for its different cryptocurrency pairs (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Namecoin, etc.), view your balance, view your open/closed orders, close orders from within the app and open new orders.

Opening a new order costs you 1 credit, that you can purchase through in-app purchases.

The free app can be found in the Windows Phone Store here.

Via, thanks Andrea for the tip.
