    Yep. Who else would you give money to keep for free or sometimes even have to pay to keep it (for checks etc.) And at the same time, they loan it back to you and charge you 10%!

    Ripping off is correct.

    About time they all wrote a Windows app instead of the CEOs taking multi-million salaries. Probably would only be a couple of days salary to get an app written...

    I got the standard polite FU response from emailing all the major Canadian banks after I asked about both wp8 and BB10. However I did find a secure tool that will convert their existing Android apps for a BB10.

    All of them!? Is there any bank over there with an app?

    @Mcivor88, that's a great idea but I find most mobile websites are pretty ****e, I'm glad it works for you though.

    I used to pin the website to my homescreen but then I found an app called app builder, it allowed me to make a basic app that had its own web browser in it. This meant I could put a proper logo on the tile and make it look as if it is a real app.

    I've done this for loads of mobile websites, gumtree, easyjet, paddy power. When people take a look at my phone it gives a better impression of the OS!
    Great find! I've managed to put my online banking site into something that looks like a WP app! Bit fiddly to use on the phone and figure out but works nicely! Cheers!

    A statement I've seen in more recent weeks from NatWest is that "the app for Windows Phone 7.5 should be released early this year, while the app for Windows Phone 8 will be a little later."

    I hope when they say 'a little later', we're talking days not weeks.

    I've sent Halifax a private message on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/halifax):

    Hey.
    I'm currently with Halifax for my banking and would like to be able to access my banking from my phone. Now, as far as I am aware there is currently no app for the Windows Phone series of devices, which is what I am using (and switching to Android/iOS is out of the question). Is there any news on a Windows Phone app? I am reading reports that Santander and Natwest are releasing apps for our platform. Please could you let us know what your stance on this?

    Cheers
    (my name)
    The fact that I mention about competition should give us a helping hand. After all, there's customers to lose here now.

    EDIT: WTF? They didn't get phased by the fact they had customers to lose!

    Hi there (my name), thanks for the message. Although we don't have an app specifically for Windows phones, we’re currently looking at ways to improve Mobile Banking for our customers across different devices. We'll post any updates on this when we have them. In the meantime, you can sign in via your mobile’s browser for the same Mobile Banking features as the app. ^GJ

    It shouldnt suprise you. Banks arent concerned with loyalty anymore its all about making money for them. Ive been with HSBC for 10 years have numerous accounts, ISA's and savings. Told them Santander were willing to offer me better rates across all my accounts and i was thinking of switching banks unless they could match the rates. Just got a flat "No we cant do anything to match any competitors rates"

    So NatWest released their app today; and it's looking very good. A fully featured app on par with the iOS and Android versions. And it's not just the mobile site wrapped in an app (like some other banks tend to do). A job well done.

    Recorded... Recorded and what? Ignored? Sat on for 6 months? Rejected? Laughed at?

    They could do so much better than a stock response like that.

    They sound like robots, so canned. On a happy note Natwest has released a good app (I'll update the post with a link in a bit)

    RBC is working on a WP8 app. TD previously said they were, more recently have said they aren't. Not sure what their plans actually are.

    Once RBC launches theirs, I'm going to start and email campaign here to get people to complain to TD customer support. A bunch of emails should get there attention ;)

    I've tried the NatWest banking app yesterday and it works better than the iPhone version, it even has the money withdraw feature which the iPhone version doesn't seem to have!
    Everyone contact your bank via email too and get their attention! more people need to do it to get their attention!
