mBank releases official mobile banking app for Polish Windows Phone owners

Mobile banking has continued to take off as more consumers purchase smartphones. Polish mBank ( has joined other banking establishments by releasing an official app for Windows Phone. The client enables customers to connect and login to their accounts, check balances, statements and carry out general account management.

All that's required from you to get started is your personal PIN code and full functionality will be unlocked. Balance information and available funds on cards can be viewed without logging in, but to get cracking with account management and more in-depth details requires authentication.

Much like other banking apps, mBank offers the following feature set:

  • View the history of operations and previous statements
  • Transfer funds to any recipient defined from the contacts list, phone number or other
  • View list of credit cards, details and balances
  • Live Tile support
  • ATM locator
  • Exchange rate conversion calculator

The use of Live Tiles is interesting, as one can see from the screenshots above. It's a well-designed app and we're pleased to see yet another bank join the platform. For added security, the app does not store account login information and should you be inactive for 20 minutes, the app will automatically close the session and sign you out.

You can download mBank PL from the Windows Phone Store. Thanks, Mariusz, for the tip!

  • Banking apps & other niche apps are always Good indicator of platform acceptance in a market.
  • well Nokia is well accepted in Poland. I donated two 520 from,phones 4u there already. Have never seen so many wp7 and 8 devices anywhere else
  • it's great pleasure to see different banks making applications for windows phone :)
  • Yeah its good. Now its a long time the Indian banks have to update release their apps now. ICICI bank and Axis and Bank of India.
  • Mail them asking about wp app status so  that this guys can guage market.I have done already from icici mail
  • LOL, I miss read the title, I thought it was an app for cleaning polish
  • hehe lol
  • there are many more polish banks that have there apps. We have apps: BANK PEKAO, GETIN MOBILE, IKO, INGMobile, BZWBK24,  Bank Millennium, and many more ;-)
  • Yes, that's true, but mBank has been a long time coming. The fact that it has finally arrived is an indication that Windows Phone is now taken seriously and the growing user base can be no longer ignored. Usually the new WP apps have only basic (or slightly limited) functionality but they catch up with iOS or Android within a few weeks or months.
  • There are also apps of alior bank and alior sync.
  • jealouss
  • Mmmm bank
  • Can wpc make a list of banking apps on windows phone by country (USA/europe)? I would like to use it to try and force my banks hand to make an app. In the past they used the popularity as an excuse, but I don't think that holds water anymore
  • Nice. Still waiting for Capital One to get off their ass and put out a WP app.
  • It's worth mentioning that Windows Phone has nearly 20% market share in Poland, more than iOS.
  • In India its growing and will grow when wp8.1 and more updates take place
  • iOS in Poland doesn't count. It's below 5% share
  • I hope that this app is comming for other countries :)
  • Finally, long overdue...
  • TD bank do you see this app. Learn from example. Where is my TD bank app?
