Mobile banking has continued to take off as more consumers purchase smartphones. Polish mBank (www.mbank.pl) 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!
