Vodafone Australia launches My Vodafone app for Windows Phone users

If you're on Vodafone Australia, you'll want to head to the Marketplace to pick up the the carrier's latest app which is geared towards managing your account.

The app, titled with the obvious "My Vodafone" is chock full of features including:

  • Account Usage checker.
  • View Bills and Payments (limited access to history)
  • Store Locator
  • View Network updates near you.
  • Contact Support and access the Vodafone Blog.

As WPDownUnder points out, Windows Phone has been on the carrier since 2010 so better late than never. Maybe perhaps they're seeing greater uptick in Windows Phone or see great things for Windows Phone 8. Either way, it's good for consumers.

Pick up My Vodafone here in the Windows Phone Marketplace (opens in new tab); via: WPDownUnder

  • Verizon. Learn from Vodafone how to create phone usage app!
  • I was just about to post this same thing...
  • When vodaphone India is laughing the app for us...:)
  • Now we just need to see Vodafone UK make a similar app for its UK customers now - its the only app that's missing from my Lumia 900
  • Why they don't make apps such as these international releases is beyond me.
  • Because they are independent operators in each country. Australian stores have nothing to do with UK stores, and they have their own websites and systems. Each country needs it's own app...
  • Yes would like the app in the UK please!
  • Honestly, when will O2 pull their fingers out and roll out a really good app like this? For us UK O2 customers, we've got nothing.
  • Wow, fantastic. If only Optus offered something :/
  • Well at least its not like Your Orange UK app which is unbelievably broken and unusable
  • The Vodafone app is hopeless. It doesn't work for prepaid accounts (can't check balance or allowances), and all of the other functions (updates, locator, help etc) just open up the site in IE.
  • Sounds about right. I keep tweeting @vodafoneuk who tell me their website is Windows Phone friendly yet I can never get a mobile optimised site, only 'desktop' version.
    Another half arsed attempt like the Orange app I once had installed on my handset.
  • Hope they bring this to the UK soon
  • I had a live chat with Vodafone this morning, the guy said they are working on the UK app bit have no definitive timescales on when it will be ready
  • I had that same conversation months ago! Moral - don't hold your breath for Voda' UK to deliver anything soon.
  • Atleast its better than the half ar**d 'app' from o2-UK which just redirects you to the mobile myo2 page in IE
