Bank of America UWP arrives!

Published by at

For obvious geographical reasons, this is of no use to Rafe or myself, but the Bank of America is a big deal and their UWP app for Windows 10 just went live in the Store. It looks very comprehensive - some promo text and screens (and link) below. Good to see another major part of the 'app gap' removed.

From the Store description:

Wow. Talk about hitting it out of the box. And this is all available for laptop/tablet and phone users, all in the one Universal Windows Program.

And from the official Microsoft Windows blog:

...the new app expands mobile banking offerings for Windows 10 mobile devices, tablets and PCs. We worked closely with the Microsoft User Experience team to design a customized and intuitive app experience that integrates with innovative Windows 10 features like Cortana.

In an effort to simplify your financial life, you can now tell your personal digital assistant, Cortana, to easily view your banking transactions. With the familiar voice command ‘Hey Cortana’ you can now get up to date on your account balances, and directly navigate to the screens to pay bills, transfer money, find the nearest banking locations and even contact customer service. We’re pleased by how it integrates with the app and we’re excited to see how this will evolve to be more helpful and proactive in the future.

Here are some of the other new, exciting features we’re pleased to provide you based upon your feedback:

  • People Hub Integration – Looking to pay back your friends? This new integration allows you to import the existing contacts on your phone and seamlessly transfer funds to their accounts.
  • Financial Center and ATM Locator Capabilities – Travelling and need to find the nearest BofA? Utilize this feature to find the ATM or Financial Center closest to your current location.

Some promo screenshots, to give you an idea of how it looks:

If you live in the USA please feel free to comment after trying it - I'm somewhat jealous that nothing this good is in the UK yet!
