Brazil's largest bank updates their Windows Phone app

Bank of Brazil has just given their official Windows Phone app a much needed refresh. Head to the Windows Phone Store and you'll find Bank of Brazil at version 2.0. It's a huge update with plenty of new features.

Bank of Brazil (Banco do Brasil) is the largest Brazilian and Latin American bank. They've had an app out for Windows Phone for nearly three years, but it's been a little neglected. That changes with today's update.

Here's what's new in this version:

  • Payment via barcode reader
  • BB code to perform transactions over the internet with increased safety, tripling the limits for payments and transfers
  • BB payment account
  • Loan confirmation
  • Mobile withdrawals
  • Visa TravelMoney (balances, statements and recharging)
  • Various improvements

Bank of Brazil

Anyone in Brazil bank here? Let us know what you think of the updated app!

Thanks for the tip Guilherme!

  • This new version is MUCH MUCH better than the older one. The previous version was a ridiculous app with a lot of bugs and useless. So, the biggest bank of Brazil woke up to hear WP users. Amem!!

  • When Bradesco joined the Windows Phone family no one gave a shit...
