Getting close: Bank of America's UWP app for Windows 10 nears release with Store listing
Starting last December Bank of America let its intentions be known by promising a return to Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. Fast forward to March and internal testing of the app began with a planned summer release.
It looks like that date is getting close as the Store link for the Universal Windows App has been discovered by Saul C., who tipped us on the news. As expected, the link is for private testing meaning those without beta access cannot access the actual app. At the very least, however, we can see some newer images of what the app will look like when it finally hits in the coming weeks.
The store listing notes the following features in the app's description:
Manage Your Accounts
- Review activity and balances in checking, savings and credit card accounts
- View mortgage, auto loan and linked Merrill Edge® and Merrill Lynch® investment account balances
- Set app alerts to be notified of important account and security info
- Securely send and receive money using a mobile number or email address (including to and from U.S. accounts outside of Bank of America)
- Transfer funds between your Bank of America accounts
- Schedule/edit/cancel payments
- Pay eBills
- Add/Edit Pay To accounts
- Simply take photos of checks to deposit them
- Immediately see the processing deposit in your account

Help Stay Secure

The new Bank of America app comes in at around 70 MB and will be available for phone and PC with full access to all of the bank's online and mobile features.
You can see the Store listing for the Bank of America app below, but once again you will not be able to download it. We'll, of course, keep you posted when it finally does go public.

But if you want to play the "too cool" card like a smug teenager then be my guest.
Pimping a 950XL
I just upgraded my 930 to the latest RS build and obviously that means that the HERE suite of apps are gone... Now, I'm still very unsatisfied with the new maps app for various reasons but what annoys me the most is that my home screen configuration is, I think, not possible anymore. I had HERE maps, HERE drive and HERE transit individually pinned to the start screen so that I could choose my form of map and transportation directly from start. The new maps app was apparently created to replace all three but my question now is - Can I still pin individual forms of transportation to the start screen using the new maps app?
