Official HSBC app launches in Australia, continuing a slow global rollout

Managing your money while on the move is something many of us are beginning to take for granted with more and more banks supporting mobile devices. While numerous international establishments have released apps for Windows Phone, HSBC is one such bank which has limited coverage.

The global rollout picked up the pace today as Australia joined Brazil with an official HSBC app now available for consumers to enjoy.

The app, while basic in its current form, is a major step forward for Windows Phone support at the bank. With the current version, users can view account balances and transaction history, as well as transferring money. It’s all secure and above board, as one would expect. 128-bit SSL encryption technology is deployed.


We can expect to see more countries supported as the year progresses. Development will also continue to add more features and bring the overall Windows Phone experience up to par with other solutions. Should you be a HSBC Australia customer, we recommend you check it out.

You can grab HSBC Australia from the Windows Phone Store for free – note that you'll need to be set up and configured with online banking before gaining access through the app.
