    As the title says, the mobile app (for iOS devices, not sure about android) is now out on iTunes app store for free.

    Remember, remove the protection from your account before updating your OS or you will get locked out.

    It's worth grabbing for free, even if only for the ingame vendor items.

    Guess they are just trying to compete with blizzard. Plus, less people hacked, the less they have to spend on paying GMs to deal with victims.
    Besides, the hardware Authenticator is much better, this is just all that's available ATM.

    To be fair though, don't they just do the same thing?

    Well, phones are more likely to be lost or stolen. Also updating OS on a phone changes the internal key so you are locked out.
    Also it's less hassle having the fob next to your keyboard than having to get out your phone, load the app wait for it to load and type in the extra 2 digits
    Also annoying if phone dies.

    So they are the same, but with separate drawbacks.

    I'll order an authenticator, and hopefully I can add my phone aswell. Always help to have 2 solutions.

    I use the authenticator I got in my collectors right now

    It's easy and fast. Only annoyance is that you get logged out of the account page and forums far to quickly and have to auth to get back in again
