Festive update for Royal Bank of Scotland UWP

Published by at

Available for both Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile, I've heard good things about the latter recently. And, heading for the Store even though I'm not a RBS customer, I did note that the Windows 10 UWP application was showing a festive changelog. So, as nothing more than a shout-out on AAWP (though comments from customers are welcome below), here's the official RBS application - they at least are staying faithful to Windows 10 Mobile, it seems.

From the original Store description:

The Royal Bank of Scotland Mobile Banking app is available to Royal Bank of Scotland Personal and Business customers with Online Banking, who are over 11 and have a UK mobile number starting with 07.

Once you’ve downloaded the app registering is simple, all you need to hand is your Digital Banking customer number, PIN and password to get access straight away. Not registered for Digital Banking or forgotten your customer number? Get a reminder or sign up at rbs.co.uk/digital.


  • Check your balances and transactions or transfer money between your Royal Bank of Scotland accounts
  • Manage Direct Debits and standing orders
  • Transfer up to £250 to any UK account using a sort code and account number
  • Make bill payments by searching for approved utility and service providers when entering a payee name
  • Get Cash at any Royal Bank of Scotland, NatWest or Tesco cash machine using your app when you do not have your debit card
  • As a Personal Customer you can Pay Your Contacts who use the app or any mobile number which is registered for the Paym service
  • If you have registered for MyRewards (rbs.co.uk/MyRewards) you can check your pending and available Rewards balance.
  • Use Near Me to find your nearest cash machine or local branch.
  • View your Customer Number – this is the number we use to identify you when you log in to Digital Banking and for authentication when you call us.

And here's the recent Christmas changelog(!):

Here’s an early festive treat from us:

  • We’ve made a few improvements to payments, you can now save payees and schedule payments for a future date
  • Briefly switch between apps without being logged out
  • Manage all of your business accounts in one app, visit the profile menu to add a business


Great to see such support for Windows 10 anyway, I wish Lloyds and Nationwide (in my case) would be as accommodating! Also, I've mentioned the Royal Bank of Scotland Windows 10 app as 'UWP', but they've not built it for desktop etc - in this unusual case it's only targetting Mobile. Who'd have thought it?(!)
