ING Bank Windows Phone app in the works

While we have a decent number of banking apps available for our Windows Phone.  You have Chase Mobile, Bank of America, the National Australian Bank, Rabobank and the more the merrier. I would appear that ING Bank is about to join the crowd with their own Windows Phone app this Spring.

In an email correspondence shared by one of our readers, ING has confirmed that a Windows Phone mobile banking app is in development. While details weren't shared on the features of such app, it is expected to be available mid-April.

Good news for ING customers and hopefully more financial institutions will follow suit (hint, hint Regions!). There's a Windows Phone Central Forums discussion going on here (opens in new tab) if you care to talk it up about the pending ING banking app.

Thanks, Prophecy, for the tip!

  • If you're in Canada, it's been around for at least a year. Get it here... http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=49bca510-5d22-e011-854c-00237de2db9e
  • It just installed for me in the US...ooo aaahhh...
  • It is Capital One 360 now, but we also need Share Builder.
  • I totally agree, I have a checking, savings, and investing account. These two ApS are sorely missed right now.
  • I would seriously love a Cap One 360 app.
  • Yes this is such great news for me. My bank account is from ING (I'm Dutch) and I really like the ING mobile banking app on my iPod. On WP it is a really pain to transfer money with the ING website because there isn't a mobile site, just desktop only.
  • Sweet, now if USAA would update their app for WP8. Their app for WP7 was great, but on WP8 it saves all your checks to your photostream, so they had to yank it.
  • I am hoping that too... But the thread over in WPCentral forums from USAA's app team that says they have dropped Windows Phone development entirely until adoption increases doesn't give me a lot of hope for an update. I have asked live humans, tweeted, and sent tips to WPcentral to cover the dropping of the app. Others have too. But ultimately, I think USAA's data as to who in their customer base was using the WP7 & 8 platform is telling them what's up. As for Mint, I use PageOnce. The app is OK. Not awesome.
  • Waiting for wells Fargo app which is said coming for Wp8
  • Waiting for Wells Fargo app too. Really confusing since some of their biggest competitiers, Bank of America and Chase already wised up to WP.
  • I've been waiting on this for awhile, although the http://m.ingdirect.com (sorry, http://m.capitalone360.com now) mobile web site works wonderfully in IE on windows phone. Except for the SSL certificate error... Guess they need a new cert now
  • Union bank and wells Fargo please...
  • ING Direct in the USA is now Capitol One 360. Any news of them?
  • Still wish mint.com would get it in gear and get a windows phone app working.
  • I gave up on them. That thank you page they had sometime back is also missing.
    Someone requested for W8 version recently, but they said thread is already open for that topic and points to WP7 request. I think they have no clue of what's going on outside of iOS and Android.
  • fiiiiiiiiinally
  • In the Netherlands the Windows Phone Store also has the ABN-AMRO and SNS Bank apps. When the ING Windows Phone app hits the Store, 99% of the banks in the Netherlands are covered. I'd say: mission accomplished for banking apps in the Netherlands. 
  • I know right? I also have a ABN account and the WP8 app works like a charm. But ING is my main bank and I have been complaining at them since the early WP7 days. It finally payed off it seems... Yaaay!
  • PNC bank next please :)
  • I was waiting for a Wells Fargo app, but have given up hope. I have 2 Chase credit cards and have talked with their customer service a few times in the last couple of weeks. Their customer service was far better than anything I've ever experienced with WF, that combined with the fact they have a WP8 app w/ check depositing... I'm switching to Chase this week! WF seems to just be behind everyone else on the tech side of things.
     
    Also have ING Dir... i mean... Capital One 360 account. So happy to see this, too!
  • Hint Hint Citizens bank
  • We need to start a petition or something for a wells fargo app. It's redic one isnt out yet.
  • Seconded.
  • Need a TDBank app! Or at least a mobile site, the regular site is so hard to use on a non-PC
  • Second that but for Canadian users as well.
  • Still waiting for an official Navy Federal Credit Union app...
  • PNC, Schwab, capital one 360, everbank, where art thou?
  • We need Royal Bank of Canada app.
  • I need an app for Lloyds tsb.
  • ASB (New Zealand) and Volksbank (Germany) have WP8 apps too. Especially the ASB app is pretty sophisticated.
  • About time
  • I use the mobile 360 site and pin it to start. It works great. Most apps like these are overrated, since they don't add much in usability, features or speed.
  • Except you can't deposit checks using the browser, because you can't use a web form to upload a picture on WP.
  • Things were window phones fail. Screen shot, WiFi printing, instagram and apps that make you go wow.
  • You can take screenshots.
  • ASB in New Zealand has not only one of the best banking apps I've seen, but one of the most polished apps on Windows Phone. 100% 5 star reviews so far.
  • Cool,Citi Bank needs to step up.
  • This is awesome news. I wrote them requesting this app after I got my 920 at launch.
  • Citibank (Australia) please
