Besides new apps for Windows, we love apps that are also on Windows Phone, utilizing Microsoft's new 8.1 developer tools. Early this morning, Credit Karma became yet another app to add to your dual collection.
Credit Karma (CreditKarma.com) has been available as Windows 8.1 app since mid-September, but now the Windows Phone version of the free credit-checking app is available, sharing the same features.
The app and service check on your credit score, keeps track of changes and gives advice. Although the service is free, you do need to register within the app for the service to leverage all of its function. Those features include:
- Truly free credit scores
- Free on-the-go credit monitoring
- Notifications when something important changes in your credit report
- Credit report card, which tells you about factors influencing your credit score
- Free membership. No credit card required.
Overall, it is great to see another major brand take advantage of the Windows/Windows Phone app paradigm. Hopefully, this pattern continues well into 2015 ahead of the big Windows 10 shift.
Thanks, Alex L., Steve C., and Dylan S., for the tips!
