Giffgaff's new universal app for Windows 10 is taking shape

Giffgaff is working on a universal app for Windows 10, which will enable customers to manage their account, see how much allowance they have remaining, and more. The app isn't quite ready yet, but one of the developers working on the official app has revealed details and shared some screenshots.

Neowin got in contact with Ian Morland who is working on the official Giffgaff app after publishing a third-party offering on a previous version of Windows Phone. The release of this new universal app shouldn't be far off, as hinted by Giffgaff in a statement:

"The brand new official giffgaff app for Windows 10 has been built from the ground up to fully support our members on the Windows platforms. A closed beta group of around 60 members has been providing feedback over the last two months, and we are now close to finalizing the first release."


As touched on already, this new app will sport similar functionality to other carrier offerings, including a self-support system, community access, and Goodybag purchasing. The company expects to work hard on the Windows app to really bring it up to speed with Android and iOS counterparts. You'll soon be able to download the new Giffgaff app and try it out for yourself.
