Of the various attempts to bring Bitcoin into the mainstream, Circle's US-based bank is one of the more prominent. The outfit is now boasting about how managing your crypto-money is even easier, thanks to a series of tweaks for its mobile apps. The two most notable are that you can now use NFC-based payments with your Android smartphone, as well as check the value of your stash on an Android Wear device. In addition, iPhone-weilding Bitcoin enthusiasts can keep tabs on the cryptocurrency's health from inside Notification Center and even scan in a credit card straight from your camera. Both remain free to download from their respective App Stores, presuming you don't want to wait for the Winklevoss' alternative, of course.
