All though criptocurrency is getting more and more popular it is still an issue to find places where to spend your bitcoins. With ATM’s starting to appear accepting Bitcoin as payment there are also many stores that do so and we expect the number of stores to grow significantly in 2014.
Bitmap App is an awesome app that will make finding stores just a little simpler, the app shows you near stores and businesses that accept Bitcoin as an official payment, the app is developed by Ricardo Santos and is available for on iOS (An android version of the App is currently under development.) When hovering over a store accepting Bitcoin you can get directions to it, some relevant information link phone number etc, and the name of the restaurant.or store. Here are some screenshots from the App:
The app shows little B bubbles at stores that accept bitcoins and is a must-have for any Bitcoin enthusiast, if you know any local store that does accept Bitcoins you can personally add it to the Map and even make modification to existing nodes via Open Street Map. As of now the app shows over 2256 physical places that accept Bitcoin
