Wallets: bitWallet supports two types of wallets; Classic wallets accept all Bitcoin addresses and private keys. New random addresses can be generated, and existing keys can be scanned and imported. Hierarchical Deterministic (HD) wallets derive all accounts, addresses and private keys from a single master extended key. HD wallets adhere to the BIP32 / BIP44 / BIP49 address generation methods and wallet structures. Wallet seeds and deterministic keys are derived from BIP39 mnemonic sentences. TREZOR Accounts are restored with Legacy or SegWit address generation.
Data Sources: bitcoin data is pulled primarily from Blockchain.info. Balances and transactions can be verified against BlockExplorer, BlockCypher and BitGo. Exchanges rates provided by BitcoinAverage.com are limited to 100 updates per day, per IP. Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash data is pulled from various Insight providers. Additional data sources will be added as they become available.
Data Security: bitWallet uses advanced techniques to encrypt the wallet using AES-256 encryption. Your password is not stored on the device or anywhere else - if you forget your password there is no way to decrypt your wallet and recover your Bitcoins! When the wallet is decrypted, the Private Keys still remain encrypted in memory until needed to resist memory scrapping attacks. For added security, a setting is available to clear the wallet data from memory when the app is backgrounded. Data is never placed in a web browser and it never leaves the app's memory space, unless printed, shared or backed up. iCloud Backup data is encrypted with the password before transmission.

Ratings and Reviews
Good BIP-49 support, bad change behavior
Excellent SegWit support with BIP-49.
Due to a misinterpretation of how change addresses work, I can’t spend my entire wallet funds in one transaction. BitWallet doesn’t sum and doesn’t show in an integrated way the funds I have on regular and change addresses. This makes it not very useful because of the high fees of having to do multiple transaction.
Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
Seriously cannot say enough good things about this application. Its ease of use and functionality provide users with an intuitive means of setting up or even restoring crypto wallets. Development team seems to be adding features left and right and as of the time of this review they support BTC BCH and LTC wallets compatible with various formats. You can choose the fee you wish to pay in a transaction very easily (but the app also provides guidelines with how much to pay for a given confirmation time). EXCELLENT APP ALL AROUND.
Horrible customer service
Do not use this wallet. I recently received a deposit into my wallet and for some reason there was no private key once it posted. I’ve made numerous attempts to contact support but they have no interest in helping me with my issue. Most of the time they don’t even respond to my emails and when they do they are very condescending with their responses, acting like it’s my fault. I have over $600 in bitcoin that I am unable to use because their app had some sort of malfunction with my transaction. The coins are showing in my wallet but I am unable to transfer, sell, or use them. STAY AWAY!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
