Ratings and Reviews
Can't make payments
When the new version came out I didn't find the layout of transactions as clear as the old version. And it took me a little time to work out how to make a payment. However, the layout has grown on me and I'm sure I will get used to it soon. The central issue though, is that the app is now rendered useless as I am unable to make a payment from it. This has continued for a week now. Each time I press continue it throws me out to my home screen and logs me out. I have had to make payments by visiting my local branch and going to the website on laptop. I've deleted and reinstalled the app to no avail. This issue needs to get sorted as I'm sure I'm not the only one and using the app used to make life quicker and easier, but this version doesn't!! I've been a customer for 27 years and have seen some changes but this version of the app really does take the biscuit. Staff in the branch said that Santander really listens to its customers so I'm hopeful...
Update: it's a week later and so still can't make payments using the app. What is going on??
Update: it turned out my issue was due to having an older phone. I phoned Santander who explained this and assured me they were working on the app to resolve this issue. This was resolved about a week later and now I'm enjoying the app once more.

Apologies that you were unable to make payments using the app. This issue is resolved on our latest version 4.1.0 so please update if you've not done so already. We hope you enjoy using Santander Mobile Banking.
Generally good but some really irritating usability issues
Generally I like the Santander app and find it easy to do day-to-day banking. The most irritating issue is in payments section.
When making a payment to someone I’ve previously paid I have to choose the recipient from a lengthy list. The list of recipients is limited to about 20 and this list is ordered by the date that the recipients were set up in online banking. Not surprisingly most of the recipients that show at the top of the list are the ones that I no longer make regular payments to. To reach the recipients I really want to see, I have to scroll page by page through the pages until I reach the right one.
Please Santander could you list all recipients in one go rather than making me scroll through them – there is a time wasting delay while each page loads. (On the web based online banking all recipients are listed on the drop down menu in one go which is much faster.) Can you also enable me to choose to order the recipients are listed e.g alphabetically/last used/favourites and also enable me to search for the right one.

Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate you letting us know how we can improve the app. We are aware that some customers are finding the ordering of payees unhelpful and are exploring ways we can make this more intuitive to use.
Simply a poor application compared to other banking apps.
I have just opened a Santander account and stated to use this application for my Santander banking needs online. I also bank with the Halifax online using there application. I thought the experience would be the same. It isn’t! My big big bear right now is that pending transactions on this application apparently don’t exist. I paid 3 phone bills yesterday for family members and I have no pending transactions listed. Nor are they listed in the transaction section. (Which is very basic I may add). So the pending amounts which have gone out aren’t in either of the transaction section nor the pending transaction section. The money has been detected as being removed via the balance amount because I can do basic math. But I have no idea when or if it will appear in the transaction section. I rang the bank. After 2 transfers of being held, I am told “Pending transactions only work on the application for credit cards” which is frankly insane. What I expect from this application and what you get are two very different things. Other problems are, I have a message notification on the app I can’t read. You can’t use fingerprint identification. It looks like an app which isn’t receiving funding to bring the infrastructure behind it in line with other modern banking applications. Just don’t expect to know where you money is or where it’s gone with this bank. Poor, very poor.

Thanks for the feedback it helps us improve the app. We added touch ID to our new app in February 2018. Pending transactions is something we are currently working on to deliver in a future release.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
