Wells Fargo dropping support for its Windows phone app

Wells Fargo is bidding adieu to the Windows phone platform.

Another banking app is about to leave Windows phone users behind, as Wells Fargo has announced it will soon drop support for its app. In an email to users, Wells Fargo says that its app for Windows phones will be unsupported as of October 24.

From the email:

To focus on delivering exceptional digital experiences that our clients use the most, starting October 24, 2017, we will no longer support the Wells Fargo Mobile App for Windows phone. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.

Given the state of Microsoft's mobile efforts at the moment, it's not hard to see why Wells Fargo would be dropping support. Still, for anyone still making use of the app, instructions to shift to the bank's mobile site are hardly reassuring.

Wells Fargo only launched its current Windows 10 Mobile app in mid-2016 after retiring its older Windows Phone 8 app. It's unclear if the app will still continue to work after support is dropped, but it definitely won't be receiving any more updates if it does.
