The Royal Bank of Scotland is killing off two of its Windows phone apps in the coming months. Both the NatWest and RBS apps are now alerting users that they will stop working in 60 days, and neither is available to download from the Microsoft Store any longer.
The message being delivered to users states:
In 60 days, your mobile banking app on your Windows device will stop working and is no longer available in the store. To continue banking on the go, you can download the app on an iOS or Android device alternatively you can continue using online banking for your everyday banking needs.
It's not necessarily a surprise to see both apps are saying goodbye to the platform, as Windows phone has seen an exodus of support for banking apps over the past year or so. Windows 10 Mobile itself is no longer seeing active development, only receiving security fixes with each monthly "Patch Tuesday" update.
For now, both RBS and NatWest are still listed in the Microsoft Store if you use the direct link, but they're no longer searchable and aren't available to download. Given that the message about their retirement began going out to users on September 7, you'll have through the first week of November to continue using the app before it stops working.
