Disclaimer

The following Analysis is not a full code review! We plan to make code reviews available in the future but even then it will never be a stamp of approval but rather a list of incidents and bad coding practice. We cannot find and tell you all the dark secrets the wallet providers might have.

Do your own research!

Try out searching for "lost bitcoins", "stole my money" or "scammers" together with the wallet's name, even if you think the wallet is generally trustworthy. For all the bigger wallets you will find accusations. Make sure you understand why they were made and if you are comfortable with the provider's reaction.

The Analysis

This is a watch-only wallet according to their description:

Just enter either a standard Bitcoin Cash address or an “extended public key” (aka an “xpub”) from your Bitcoin Cash wallet to start accepting instant and secure Bitcoin Cash payments at your business.

As it doesn’t manage private keys, you cannot spend with it and consequently neither the provider can steal or lose your funds.

Verdict Explained

This appears to not be an app to send and receive bitcoins. We will probably remove this app from the project.
