@sharpmango Hi we are in the process of developing one, it will be ready soon. RL
Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform has often been criticized for lack of third-party apps and low interest from developers, mainly because of low market share. Ever since the launch of Windows Phone 8, however, the platform has gathered momentum and more apps are being published every day.
Now, the Royal Bank of Scotland, one of the biggest banks in the world has just revealed via its Twitter stream that they are indeed developing an app for Microsoft’s smartphone OS. They are just the latest bank to release such an app with a few other names, including Bank of American and JP Morgan Chase, having made the jump a while ago.
As you can see in the tweet card above, users won’t have too long to wait before they can access their RBS accounts from their Windows Phones thought we don't know if it's a matter of days or weeks. Details about the actual app have yet to be released but a few features such as account management and funds transfers are sure to make an appearance. And of course the whole app will feature very tight security to keep your information safe.
We’ll keep you updated as soon as new information is made available.
