  • One question about the article. How many central banks does India have?
    I was of the opinion that a country has just one central bank.
  • Guessing he means largest bank under the control of Central Government of India
  • Only one i.e. RBI(Reserve Bank of India). State Bank is one of the nationalized(Govt of India undertaking) bank.
  • The State Bank of India is a government-owned commercial bank, not a central bank.
  • That's true. Changed the wording to reflect that. Thanks!
  • Gonna be of great help for me! :)
  • Do you even have an account❓
  • Uh, no. Totally forgot that! I have a small piggy bank for all my treasure -__- Now please return that ❓ to where it belongs... Rod...
  • LOL. Rod  
  • And that's why I love SBI. :) Come on other banks follow the suit...
  • Great news. Desperately need an IDBI bank app now.
  • Welcome!
  • Finally ! Was waiting for this since long :)
  • The freedom app looked better but did nothing. I didn't login yet, didn't finish the registration process. The sign-in page could look a tad more aesthetic though.
  • Great news.... Nice to see an article like this.
  • Waiting for IDBI bank...
  • Cool good news for me
  • Chase says wtf
  • Lol
  • I am very glad SBI has done this. This is the biggest and the most powerful bank in India. WP is been taken seriously here.
  • Awesome. This is great News. :) Way to go Indian Banks. US Banks can learn a thing or two
  • Long live india and When in India! Satya rocks!
  • Finally !!!!
  • Great
  • Thanks IDBI app waiting,,,,,,
  • Life is more easier now
  • Excellent UI and its very fast too
  • The ICICI app is pretty useful too. Btw I couldn't find an banking app for ICICI on android, did WP beat android to it?
  • HDFC rocks. Best bank ever.
  • Of late, I am unable to log in using ICICI wp app
  • ICICI apps are by the title iMobile...
  • Finally...... Great news as being a SBI customer.
  • Good.. Now waiting for the their Trading app... SBI smart..
  • Nice to get this app finally. Downloaded and is working fine. But it is a iPhone apps clone. Would like to see it updated to become a native WP app!!
  • Axis Bank's app is the best i feel among all banks' apps....in all platforms
  • Their service sucks hard. Really even the employees. The employee blindly stamped on the check which she shouldn't have done.
  • Now in India. #ExitRedmond
  • Atlast... Sbi listened!!! I'm happy both my banks (Axis & SBI) have their dedicated and useful apps now. :)
  • App icon is so cheap otherwise perfect app.
  • To those fucking people who post "wen in india" comment let me remind u all....we watched furious 7 before u.s. We will watch avenger: Age of ultron before anyone get to watch ✌
  • Well!!! Has anybody tried it yet? Is it working? I logged-in to my SBI account online and notice a 'Windows registration' tab on the left side of the site. It asked for a One-Time password from where I have no idea to get that from. I installed the app in my phone and it asked for my banking username and password, but it tells me try later.  Is the app still in work progress?   
  • I am using it successfully. First activate the application login from website, then simply use the app. App is very much impressive in its first version. All the basic functionality are available and working fine.
    Few days back State bank also launched SBI card app.
  • Must be nice to have banks support on Windows phones :) Sen from my Windows 10 TP phone. NL1520
  • WHEN IN INDIA?! LOL
  • You don't have to LOL to bring it to India. ..... Btw, India is perhaps making history as far as Windows Phone is concerned. Do you have any problem with it ?
  • Nice app. To use. But I dint find option to see the ac statement and transaction history. I gues its missing in this app.
  • I have a woeful relationship with SBI. But that wouldn't stop me from using this app as it gives me access to all of their internet banking anywhere. Cheers SBI for bringing albeit late.
  • please provide WINDOWS APP to ASSOCIATES OF STATE BANK OF INDIA  viz., SBH SBM SBBJ SBT SBP
