Uniswap Mobile App Finally Gets ‘Green Light’ From Apple App Store

After a month in “Apple jail,” Uniswap’s wallet is now publicly available

Following a month of review by Apple, Uniswap’s mobile app has finally secured its place in the iOS app store.

It is now available for users in “most countries” — including the United States — according to a tweet from Uniswap Labs on Thursday. Uniswap assured, “we’ll continue to launch in other countries as soon as Apple lets us.”

In addition to allowing swaps between the Ethereum mainnet, Polygon, Arbitum and Optimism, users will also be able to track their NFT collections and purchase crypto with their debit cards through MoonPay — an integration that was rolled out on the exchange last December

Uniswap Labs faced a number of challenges in launching on the iOS app store after first tweeting on March 3 that Apple wouldn’t “green light” the utility. To get around this, it decided to open the TestFlight version of the app to 10,000 users.

At the time, the company claimed to be “100% compliant” with Apple’s specifications, despite still being “stuck in limbo.”

The iPhone maker updated its review guidelines back in October to clamp down on the NFT ecosystem that had been growing after it approved the buying and selling of tokens last September. 

Apple may have also been weighing the legal consequences of approving the app for distribution. Last July, Senator Sherrod Brown pushed Apple and Google to review protections against crypto-related scams. Brown had urged the tech companies to be vigilant about “fraudulent activity” and warned that it’s “imperative to have the proper safeguards in place” to protect investors. 

To make use of the app, users will need to create a non-custodial wallet — meaning a wallet with keys controlled by the individual end user, rather than by a third-party exchange or custodian. Users can generate their own non-custodial wallets within the Uniswap app itself, or import an existing wallet seed for use with the exchange. The app’s code is open source, and is available on Github.
