How can I watch an address on Windows and Android?


I want to be informed of transactions of my Bitcoin address on the Windows and the Android app. Can I use the same Bitcoin address on both? If yes, how can I backup the address on Windows and restore it on Android?

1Quick note, lets you monitor transactions for a given bitcoin address without importing any private keys. It's under import/export "Watch Address" – greatwolf – 2014-08-19T06:06:16.140

Welcome to Bitcoin.SE. Please only ask about one topic per post: I've edited your question to refocus it on the second part, i.e. watching an address with two different apps. Your first question is answered for example here: What's the difference between a wallet and an address?, What is the role of bitcoin wallets?. Please feel free to edit this post if I didn't capture your intent for the second question. If you find your question about wallets not answered, please repost it as its own post.

Just use bitcoind -walletnotify= Execute command when a wallet transaction changes (%s in cmd is replaced by TxID)

in a script or for more details, access the bitcoind API via RPC
