Thought of Everything
Accessible, convenient, and smart. Starling Bank has combined every bank assist app I’ve ever used into one. Tracking my spending, rounding up transactions to put into goal accounts, quickly sending money to near by friends, and so much more; this app has it all. I just moved here and opening an account with Starling has made my transition so much easier. Very well thought out on every level and very deserving of the Best Bank Award.
Great bank! Got locked out of my app in the middle of the night ona weekend! I sent a short SOS video within 20 minutes regained access.
With so much fraud I applaud the extra steps, 24 support and help directly from the app even though I was locked out.
Much better than a traditional bank, though the interest rates could be better.
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
