UK customers who bank with First Direct will be pleased to hear that they can now access their vital information straight from their BlackBerry 10 smartphone thanks to the Banking on the go app. The application is an Android port but as long as it works I'm ok with that.
I haven't been able to give this one a test run as I don't bank with First Direct so feel free to post your thoughts in the comments if you are a customer.
BlackBerry 10 customers will be able to:
- view balances and up to your last 90 transactions
- make transfers between your accounts with us
- make payments to a person or organisation you have paid before using Internet Banking
- read secure messages
While we are on the subject of UK banking apps - there seems to be a shortage for BlackBerry 10. Back at BlackBerry Jam Europe we were promised a native NatWest application. Where is that one? NatWest can't tell me. It's kind of frustrating when apps like this work perfectly on legacy devices.
