Wells Fargo is 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:
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.

Just switch, dude. You buy a smartphone for what it can do for you and for convenience. Does it sound like it's doing its job? Needing to use your wife's iPhone because "the camera is more reliable"? No app to connect with your children's teacher? Get an iPhone or flagship Android, and let them work for you and make life easier (I can't deal without mobile deposits).
