Blockchain.info has been one of the pioneer startups in the Bitcoin space and an advanced blockchain information, market, trading, and wallet service. Its reputation and professional service has earned it millions of users in all of its services.

Like it was reported by Naation.com a few months ago, in an interview with CEO Nicolas Cary, the company’s wallet app was banned from the Apple app store for reasons not explained by the iPhone manufacturer.

Fortunately for Bitcoin and its growing community of users and advocates Apple has changed its policies and today the Blockchain Bitcoin Wallet app is back up in the iOS system.

Here is how it works:

1. When you download the app and open it you need to setup your Bitcoin account:

2. You can create a new wallet account from scratch:

3. Or you can pair (connect) you existing Blockchain Bitcoin wallet automatically:

4. Or you can pair it manually:

5. Then you need to select a 4 digit security passcode:

6. And voila! You are on the app’s home page which is your transaction history page:

7. By clicking on a transaction you can see its details:

8. When you need to receive Bitcoin you go to the “receive” page where you can select what Bitcoin address to use, scan a private key, or create a new address:

9. To send or pay with Bitcoin you go to the “send” page where you enter the amount and the destination address, you can choose from which of your addresses to send from, and hit send:

10. To make your life easier you can choose a destination address from your “address book”:
