Apps that let you monitor and manage your financial status are critical for many users. With Mint infamously exiting the Microsoft ecosystem last year Prism stepped up to the plate and continued support.
Now, the company has updated their app for Windows 10 Mobile with a revamped design and new features. The company is rightfully proud of their ability to service customers across all platforms, and the new app is garnering strong reviews from users with a 4.7 (out of 5) Store rating.
For those not familiar, Prism lets you "check your balances, track your pay days and pay all of your bills" right from your Windows 10 Mobile device. The company still maintains their app for Windows 8.1 one as well, which, of course, runs on Windows 10 for PC and tablets as well.
Prism has no monthly fee and can access "thousands of banks" including every major US one. The app comes with numerous features as well, including:
- Reminder notifications for when bills are due
- Pay bills with credit card, debit card, or bank account
- Check account balances
- See when bills are due and how much you owe
- You can also see your bills from AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, Sallie Mae Student Loads, State Farm and hundreds more.
How they did it
In an interesting bit of extra information, the company detailed how they made the app on their blog:
"We didn't port our iOS app using Islandwood. Instead, we built a UI framework that both our iOS and Android apps use. With a little elbow grease, we were able to make it work on the Universal Windows Platform as well. It was well worth the effort, in our opinion. (If there's interest, we'd be happy to go into more technical details in a future post.)"
The app update to Windows 10 Mobile also brings parity with the iOS and Android apps. No word if and when the PC app will go to Windows 10 as a proper universal app, but hopefully it won't be long. For now, you can still use the separate Windows 8.1 in Windows 10 for PC.
All of that sounds fantastic, which reminds us, we need to sign up for Prism right now to get started. You should too. And if you like the app remember to leave a review in the Store!
