Chase Mobile app will be removed from the Windows Phone Store on Jan. 26
Chase Bank plans to remove its Chase Mobile app from the Windows Phone Store on January 26, according to a number of reports sent to us today by Windows Central readers.
The first version of the Chase Mobile app launched for Windows Phone devices in September 2012 and allows Chase Bank customers to monitor their accounts, pay bills and more. The app was later updated to run on Windows Phone 8.1 devices. The app was last updated in August 2014.
The message sent to Chase Mobile Windows Phone app users did not indicate why Chase Bank is ditching its Windows Phone app. We at Windows Central have learned that the app itself will be deactivated on March 22. The decision was apparently made to simplify their product offerings — they feel that there are not enough Windows Phone users to justify its continued support. We have contacted Chase to see if they can confirm this report.
Thanks to everyone who sent us tips!

I don't really think WP is at a feature disadvantage anymore... Especially after our little chit chat.... I was looking for some really cool can't live without features.. Maybe we'll come up with something..
Nevertheless, interactive live tiles would be nice.. That way I can finally have my music controls on my start screen.. Im sure that's coming though

0.01% interest checking

Fantastic App, check picture depostits, etc.
I'm not trying to be rude, but that's my honest to god opinion... Sorry if it offends anyone, but I'm sticking with my attitude until I see results❗
MS has sent me t shirts, and an assortment of WP collectables because of my input about WP..
I am the biggest WP fan❗
It's fake WP fans like you who contribute nothing to the platform except calling well know WP fans stupid things like trolls.. What have you done? Where have you been? How long have you supported Windows?
....... Maybe you're the real troll here... Think before you open your mouth again.
Apple gets the job done, and it's fans are happy for the most part.
Google gets the job done, and it's fans are happy for the most part.
And, Samsung gets the job done, and it's fans are happy for the most part...
........ But, MS has consistently failed in Mobil, and it's fans make excuses for them,,, almost as if it's acceptable for MS to fail, while the others don't... What kind of support is that for a platform❓ A lot of WP fans are just sore losers, and would rather make excuses, and give up, than state what's really wrong, and fight for the platform...
So let's assume this, even if out of this, say 100M WP users, only 50K use the app, and facilitate transactions frequently and that makes a profit for the bank about $10 each, they could be making 500K per year by providing this service. Not to mention saving from a number of other costs.
So, Chase doesn't want to support WP anymore ,,,that sux..... But, why does chase not want to support WP anymore? Because of market share? The amount of people downloading the app on WP devices?.... How is that Chase's fault? Is that more a issue that lies with MS, especially when what we're ultimately talking about here is not just the Chase app, rather the entire WP store?
I think we should be able to see who we really need to be complaining to fairly easily here..
Reasonably, we can ask Chase not to pull the app, but if they do then we can't blame them... But then the question is,,, why does iDroid still have the app? Should we blame Google? Samsung? Apple? Chase?............. No. This is Microsoft's store. Microsoft's store.... Nobody else's.
But, that's just how it is... The app will remain on iOS, and Android, but leave WP.... I could agree with your argument, but it's seriously blown out of the water by the fact that Chase isn't the only one.. Lol❗ Attacking Chase specifically is stupid because there's so many who make the same decision about WP it's ridiculous, and a loosing battle..... But, what is controllable is how MS manages perception off THEIR OWN PLATFORM❗ ...... This is a simple concept.. You focus on changing what you can, or in this case what you possibly can, to get the most out of your time... Attacking developers, who are just fine if WP didn't even exist, is pointless, and a waist of time..... Now, criticizing MS for the things they fail at is a huge terrific use of time, as it's been proven that they do actually listen once a lot of attention is pointed at a specific problem... The weird thing is that MS seems to have to be told what to do to some degree larger, by it's supporters, than fans of other platforms have to do to theirs.... Unacceptable.
I stand by my word... Do you need further explanation?
WP is a perfectly capable platform, with the apps that most average consumers need.. The problem is that nobody knows about it.. It's the best kept secret, and if for one second you think it's not then think again....
MS just has never given WP a fighting chance as far as awareness is concerned... They have done an absolute terrific job with Surface, & Xbox, so we know they can do better..
It's quite obvious that WP is failing at this point, but it has not yet completely failed.... My honest opinion is that W10 is MS's last chance at relevance, and if it doesn't help increase MS then "Windows Mobile" will always be just a distant third, under supported, niche platform... Some of you might be fine with that, but personally I use the Chase app, and this really pisses me off because it could've been avoided..
Disagree with me if you want, and you have the right to, but anything that does not go right with WP is complete MS's fault, and they solely hold the responsibility to make it happen! No excuses! Don't make up anymore excuses for MS, rather you guys need to expect more, because we all know they can do better........ And, millions of us are counting on W10, so MS better show up, and finally not let us down..... That's it❗
If MS doesn't market WP properly, and appears to not care, can we blame Chase, and many others, for not caring❓ They're lucky we even care❗ Lol..
Microsoft REALLY needs to market Windows Phone HARD!!! :-) As we all know, it is a terrific platform-forward thinking even with its minimalistic Modern UI(that has influenced rivals) and the unique information centric LIVE Tiles. Fast, smooth, reliable- Windows Phone is inherently a winner of a platform. Problem, the rivals are entrenched, Windows Phone mindshare is low, so not many people really know how GREAT it is. They hear about Windows Phone, but don't KNOW about Windows Phone.
MS really needs to invest in really aggressive promotion of the platform - highlighting its strengths, to break through the chatter of the competition and educate the populace.
Windows 10, is promising with its unification of the code and the creation of a single Store. This of course in time gives MS the opportunity to leverage it's huge 1.5 Billion install base to court developers.
At any rate, I've been in the Windows camp since Windows Mobile, and though I lament some of the unique features lost with the advent of Windows Phone 8.1 like:
1. Deep Social Network Integration(I know extensibility allows for it but we haven't seen much progress here)
2. Elimination of Hubs
3. Breaking Messaging/Texting into an App Centric vs People Centric Solution
4. Neutering of the Me Tile
5. No Background Image/or Social Network Integration in Pictures Hub
6. No Album Art of Artist on Lock Screen,
I'm going to hang around, keep pushing the platform (there's more to LOVE than to LAMENT lost, but I must be honest about my disappointments)and hope for the best with future updates. Here's a Sway(book) I created called: "A Windows Phone Fans Lament(and Praise) of Windows Phone
That needed to be shouted only because I'm getting sick and tired of all this.
Still waiting on Softcard to work on the Icon... but after Google wanting to buy it?!?
Or, perhaps, Chase is readying a Windows 10 app?
What else would you use the app for? Taking pictures of checks? Sending money? There's PayPal for that.
Then get High Expectations after reveal
-High limit mobile deposits
-No minimium balance Leave gready chase and their fees behind.
