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!
