Say hello to a liberating new way to manage your money. B is a new digital banking service for tablet and mobile, that brings together a current and savings account into one amazing personal finance app.
B helps put you back in charge
With tons of clever tools, including a money dashboard, B has everything you need to help you take control of your finances. B can give you a hand planning to save for that special something, or let you know if it thinks you are getting carried away with your spending. So you can spend and save on your own terms.
B can make your money simple
B’s clever budgeting tools have been designed to help make your everyday banking simple and intuitive. From the moment you start using the B app, making a payment or checking your spending is just a few taps away.
B puts you in the know
The more B learns about you, the more it can teach you about your money. So the more you use it, the more it can help you. B looks at how you spend your money and serves up useful tips, insights and stories on your spending.
-B automatically and smartly tags all of your spending into categories like food, travel and eating out. You can also add your own custom tags.
-B lets you set up as many Savings Pots as you like and helps you decide how much you can save and when. You can even give your pots a name, like “Weekend in Paris” or “Brand Spanking New Car”.
-With smart budgeting tools, B always keeps an eye on your money and will send you alerts when it thinks you need to rein in your spending. You can also set up automatic sweeps between accounts.
-B’s supercharged search makes it easy to check transactions and you can filter and sort them to see exactly what you’ve been spending, from clothes to coffee.
-B aims to surprise you with facts and money saving tips that show exactly where your money goes and how it could go further – like showing you all the things you have bought under a tenner.
-As B learns more about your spending habits, it’ll look ahead and predict how the end of your month might work out and the best way to save money. It can give you plenty of warning if things look tight or if it looks like you’ve got a little extra to spend or save.
-Your monthly statements are just a tap away with the B app. View the current month (up to the previous business day) or go for the bigger picture and look at your statements over the last six months. You can even download and save them to your device or through iTunes File Sharing, and tell us when you want to stop receiving paper statements.
- With B's Connect Accounts feature, you can use the B app to view your balances with other banks and building societies.
-B is powered by the people at Clydesdale Bank and Yorkshire Bank who are building on 175 years of doing what’s right for customers and inspired by all the new opportunities technology brings.
-Device Requirements apply, subject to status & eligibility. See youandb.co.uk for full T&C’s. To get full functionality both a compatible smartphone & tablet are required.

-How to Register. To register for the B app you need a B account. If you don't have one already, visit www.youandb.co.uk for more info.
-If you do have one, registration is easy. First, download the B app to your device. You'll then be guided through the process. Before you start, you'll need:
-Your customer number or user name
-The mobile phone linked to your account (as we'll send you a text with a code for you to enter)
-If you've already registered for Internet Banking, your B password, if not, don't worry, you'll be asked to do this as part of the app registration.
Once you've registered, you can start using the app straight away.
Your banking just got a little bit brighter. We update the B app regularly to bring you the best experience. With this release we've fixed a few bugs, and also made a couple more tweaks and service improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Good Honest Review
I can’t review the call centre side of this bank or App, as I’ve never had to call them. But what I can do is review the App itself, and the services within it, as I use them on a daily basis.
The App itself is extremely simple to use, with built in services that even a child could access and understand. This App allows you to access almost everything a high street bank has to offer, without the hassle of making a personal visit.
All options that require a personal visit, you wouldn’t expect to find on any banking App, like applying for a mortgage, or applying for a 50k loan etc. But still, this App has everything (beside the obvious) you’d need to successfully maintain your general banking needs with One Single Click!
The App also has a basic format and interface that even Forest Gump could follow, its idiot proof! Therefore, if anyone were to struggle in using this App, I’d have to question any childhood injuries they may or may not have sustained. Any such injuries being, acute damage to the Frontal Lobe region. As any trauma such as this, can turn viably “Sane” people into (and let’s not sugarcoat this) rectal dwelling, window licking, rug munching, knob polishing C**ts!
Hope this honest review helps? If not, perhaps you may be “That guy” who simply just can’t grasp things like “where air comes from”? If so, please re-read the last paragraph above, and seriously reevaluate your life! Before the shrink does it for you.
Thank you :)
Too much and to little
I haven’t got anything good to say about this app is colours are terrible you can’t see the writing is lots of features on it but it’s not customisable I don’t want to see my savings I try to forget about them so I can’t make this appear I get messages all the time even though I’ve turned them off I know that I’m overdrawn I can’t tell when my bank charges are due or how much they are so I have to look for the letters I think they should simplify it and put more effort into letting you customise the colours yourself and the size of the writing sometimes I can’t see how much money I’m transferring and I don’t always want to put a reference to it also the app for the iPad only works one way so you can’t turn the screen up right which is quite annoying when you’re in a rush altogether this app is okay but there is room for a lot more improvement that should simplify it OR make it more customisable In its appearance and size of writing it is also very inaccurate do not trust this balance on your account because it does not show and things disappear off it I only use it now to transfer money I don’t rely on her at all I keep pen and paper of my outgoings
What a terrible experience with this “B” thing!
Please can I have the old Yorkshire Bank app back please?
This “B” thing will not let me log in, in spite of the fact that I have been logging in on the old app for yonks.
This, coupled with the fact that just about all my local branches have gone means I will have to switch banks. More avoidable waste of effort and time.
Ok, went back to my windows 10 laptop. Got into my account with no problem, checked balances etc, logged out.
Reinstalled the iOS app on my iPad, lo and behold, it says I do not have an account! I need to phone an 0800 number to open an account!
Visited a branch the other day and the teller says that in order to use the “B” thing I need to open a new account! That appears to be the reason why I cannot use the app! How come currently active accounts are not seamlessly moved over pray tell? Now I know what the B stands for, but too much of a gentleman to spell it out! It does seem strange though that I can access the B thing on my laptop, using my current log in details, but not the app! Now come on chaps, I am sure you can sort this out, after all, you are the boys that can!
