Ratings and Reviews
Love it but I’d love
I’ve been using the TIAA app for years and am very happy with it although it would be nice to have access to some other features offered on the web. I’d love to have a simple way to view available funds information for my class. The web offers this ability. The app only has close to this ability if you’re transferring funds or want to search for a fund when creating your tracking list. I’d love access to some useful forms and better yet the ability to fill them out in the app and print if needing notary witness, or submit if not. On the web and app it would be nice (if possible) to display on TIAA funds risk assessments.
The app is serviceable, and I appreciate that, but it’s not well designed. For example, the reminder about widgets comes up every time I log in. How many times do I have to choose “I understand” before it let’s me bypass it—or at least let’s me choose “Don’t show this again”? There’s a button saying you’d like feedback, but the only option is to dismiss (even though the button stays when I do that). I had to go through the app store to provide feedback. Given such problems, I use it only if I want quick, simple info, and use the website (which also has some design problems) for everything else. Of course, if spending money on redesign would be at the expense of personal client service (which is terrific) or returns on investments, living with the design problems might be preferable. Still, those problems may make it less likely that tech-savvy clients will put or leave funds in TIAA than in competitors with better app and website design.
What a buggy banking app
I don’t understand why the reviews of this app are so high. I routinely encounter bugs that make me very nervous about their IT practices. Some examples:
- When I re-open the app I can briefly see all my account balances before it flashes an annoying “Session expired” message and logs me out. When you switch back to the app you should never see the balances without FaceID.
- You have to manually choose Face ID to log in almost every time, unlike normal finance apps that just automatically read your face on the login screen. If I have FaceID set up, why would I want to log in using some other method?
- When I launched the app once it gave me a full screen warning “Your account has been locked” then the warning immediately went away allowing me to access my account. This made me *super* nervous. Was my account hacked? Or was it just a bug? I think it was a bug because I can still access my account. But still trust busting.
I have provided feedback through their in-app tool multiple times with no response. And still it asks me constantly if “I am enjoying their app”. No I am not! But I am stuck with them after they took over my prior Everbank account when they merged. Only staying with this bank due to the friction of switching, but certainly no loyalty to this bank. And their app is not helping.
