National Bank launches mobile app for Android

National Bank launches mobile app for Android

Building on the success of its iPhone mobile banking app, National Bank today announced the launch of a mobile banking app for Android smartphones.

The new app, which is available to download from the Google Play Store from this afternoon, will enable Android users to access a range of National Bank services at any time of day, wherever there is mobile coverage.

“Increasingly, our customers are enjoying the flexibility of accessing banking services wherever and whenever they like,” says Kerri Thompson ANZ National Bank Managing Director for Retail.

“Since ANZ National launched its iPhone apps, 100,000 customers are performing an average 2.5 million transactions a month.

“With the launch of our new Android mobile banking app, we are making this flexibility and convenience available to customers with Android smartphones and devices.”

The Android app, which is available to those running Android 2.2 (Froyo) and above, enables customers to:

• View balances and review transaction history
This includes all a customer’s online banking accounts and the ability to make transfers between accounts.
• Pay bills and transfer money
Transfer money to the payees and bills registered on customers’ online profile.

To use National Banking Mobile Banking, customers must be registered for National Bank Online Banking and have a 3G-enabled Android smartphone or device that is enabled for cellular or wireless internet connection and have an active mobile phone number.

There is no monthly account fee for using the National Bank Mobile Banking application.

An Android mobile banking app for ANZ customers is expected to be available in late November.

Further information about the National Bank Android mobile banking app is available online at www.nbnz.co.nz/promos/androidpromo
