It would be putting things lightly to say that this week has been a rough one for users of banking apps on Windows Phone. However, at least one bank has confirmed it is sticking around: Wells Fargo. After both Chase bank and Bank of America said they would be ending support for their Windows Phone apps, Wells Fargo says it has no plans to abandon the platform.
The news was originally reported by USA Today, which received the following statement from Wells Fargo:
"Wells Fargo is committed to delivering apps that help our 14 million mobile banking customers manage their money virtually anytime, anywhere, and at this time we have no plans to retire our Windows 8 phone app," according to a statement provided to USA TODAY from a Wells Fargo spokeswoman. "We continue to examine our customers' needs and usage, and make our decisions accordingly."
This is great news for Wells Fargo customers, and possibly even those looking to switch banks after the Chase and Bank of America fiasco. In the meantime, perhaps Windows 10 will exert some pressure on banks to bring more support to the platform.
