Lloyds TSB Mobile Phone App Solves Mobile Banking Issues

Posted on Nov 7 2011 - 8:30pm by Richard Sharp

Just under a month ago Lloyds TSB joined the mobile age by launching apps across the four major mobile operating systems. In doing so they were the first bank to launch an app for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Symbian.

The app allows Lloyds TSB customers to access their personal accounts, make transfers and do everything else expected of a high end Internet banking system. It also allows users to locate their nearest cashpoint using the phones built in GPS. We tried this today on the iPhone and have to say it worked like a charm.

Over 360,000 people have downloaded the app since its launch with the current star rating settling at a very respectable 4 stars for iOS. These figures aren’t that surprising when you consider other UK banks have had apps out for well over a year.

The app uses the latest secure encryption technology to keep your details safe. It can remember our login ID (not password) if you so wish, although we’d recommend tapping it in each time as you can never be too safe these days.

It can also solve problems faced by some users caused by a conflict between Safari and the Lloyds TSB website. The app bypasses Safari entirely, requests your login and then drop down password information – the format is the same regardless of the system being used.

What do you make of the new app?
