Good usable banking app

Skipton have been a bit behind the times with their lookup grid security card, but now there's this app and it does most things well.

It has one main advantage over other bank's apps - secure messaging from the app. Other banks (Nationwide) expect you to log on to their main website to do secure messaging, and HSBC has a ridiculous one-way only secure messaging - only from them to the app; you have to go to the main website to send them a secure message.

Anyway, back to the Skipton app, may I suggest a couple of improvements? Have the 'Logout' option on every page. Why should we have to navigate to '...More' to see the Logout button? At the very least have it on the homepage, so you can log in, check balances and logout quickly. I know it has an auto logout feature, but I much prefer to log out manually from any banking app.

I use TouchID login for the app, which works well. However, if you log out, go to another app and then return to the Skipton app, it then demands your PIN, with no option for TouchID. You have to close the app (flick upwards) then re-open it.

Apart from that, a good app which makes banking with Skipton feel modern and efficient.

Good but needs some work

Good app but there are
Some
Bugs that need to be ironed out to improve it to the level of other finance apps. There should be a function to allow you to read you messages from Skipton without having to log into the website version. You should also be able to access electronic forms such as isa to isa transfer request forms and be able to submit them electronically without having to print and go to branch. This would improve the functionality of the site.

Hi there, thanks for your review and taking the time to leave your feedback.

It is possible to read your secure messages on the app, you simply need to select the help button and it allows you to view the conversation history you've had with us.

You don't have to visit the branch as such with the ISA transfer forms for the Lifetime ISA (all other ISAs can be transferred electronically) but you can post the form instead. However we are currently looking at this process and hopefully should see some improvements in the future.

Improved but could be much better

Finally Skipton have caught up, a little bit with other finance apps, and I like the straightforward layout.

Improvements could be made, for instance being able to open new accounts/products within the app instead of transferring back to desktop.

Also, a huge trick Skipton are missing here are linking an ISA or other savings account with my debit card to “round up the change” on daily transactions and transferring it to savings. Having said that the round up would definitely need to be instant on my current accounts instead of the biggest con (with other providers) which take days to take the cash leaving customers unable to budget efficiently.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, thanks for your review and taking the time to provide your feedback. I can confirm features such as opening new accounts is a feature we hope to add in the future and we currently have no plans to round up transactions but I am more than happy to pass this on to our development team to consider for future updates.
