Wells Fargo confirms it will continue supporting its Windows Phone app
It would be putting things lightly to say that this week has been a rough one for users of banking apps on Windows Phone. However, at least one bank has confirmed it is sticking around: Wells Fargo. After both Chase bank and Bank of America said they would be ending support for their Windows Phone apps, Wells Fargo says it has no plans to abandon the platform.
The news was originally reported by USA Today (opens in new tab), which received the following statement from Wells Fargo:
This is great news for Wells Fargo customers, and possibly even those looking to switch banks after the Chase and Bank of America fiasco. In the meantime, perhaps Windows 10 will exert some pressure on banks to bring more support to the platform.

Someone from Windows Central wouldn't have happened to contact Ally for comment would they?
I have them and love them.
Reached out on twitter and got this:
This oft quoted "market share", is tiring. It doesn't cost a lot of money to maintain an app with security updates. Take a look at the Apple Pay website. The headline banks are, you guessed it, Chase and BofA. Coincidence?
Either way, the app is full featured and works great - it is even updated somewhat regularly.
Join a good credit union...
And, if I did the OD fee would be half.. Think again, dude.
I'm also a Windows phone guy and if the shop doesn't exist I'll ask the company for it and continue enjoying my phone with or without it.
No app is so important that I'll change platforms.
Take it up with someone else, please.
I have an economics degree and have done business consulting. You're going to have to work harder to shoo me away with your quips.
Once again, I can't help you with whatever you're looking for.. Sorry, and good luck.
Assuming they still support the platform in several years, of course.
I suppose it could still be a wrapper with that feature added in.
Extremely easy to manage business and personal accounts.
The bank branch service is excellent as well.
Nadella is not doing a good work about me. Anyway Here in Italy WP is the Second smartphone platform with about 15% of market share, but bigger banks don't have wp app too. Wp app only from smaller (allmost all) banks
Anyway i guess there is ibm after this "boycott ms campaign"
Ibm manage it in a lot of banks here and ibm has a partnership with Apple And don't forget what ms did to os/2, i believe ibm is the worst ms counterpart
Also they have a no fee business account if you allow a transfer to happen once a month to your WF savings account, even if you transfer the money right back into checking.. Still no charge. That's nice these days.
