RBS and NatWest customers now have a BlackBerry App


From today, the millions of people in the UK who own a BlackBerry Smartphone can download the RBS & NatWest banking app. Customers with the brand new app will be able to check their balance, see their last 6 transactions and even transfer funds between accounts.
It’s clear that customers are increasingly turning to their mobiles to help keep tabs on their banking. This new app means they can transfer money when short of cash, check their account balance, and even pinpoint the closest ATM if ever short of a few pounds. Essentially it provides RBS and NatWest customers with a simpler way to manage their money – all from their BlackBerry smartphone.
Today’s exciting announcement also means customers with BlackBerry smartphones will be able to :
*             See all accounts they hold with either NatWest or RBS, and check balances
*             View their last 6 transactions
*             Manage and receive SMS text message alerts
*             Top up their pre-paid mobile account.
This new app joins the banks phenomenally successful iPhone and iPad banking app. RBS and NatWest have already seen hundreds of thousands of customers regularly using these banking apps since they launched earlier in the year.

Satyendra Chelvendra, Managing Director, Consumer Distribution commented:
“We know that our apps are making everyday banking that little bit more helpful and convenient. We’ve been working hard to provide the most advanced banking apps for our customers, so we’re thrilled that we can the lead the way once more as we launch one of the first mobile banking apps for the BlackBerry.”

Being a NatWest customer myself I am clearly overjoyed with this new app. Once downloaded, registration takes just a couple of minutes and then it is a case of waiting for authorization which can take up to 24 hours. I am now waiting.

Currently, much of the focus is on games for the small screen. First came the Nintendo DS and Sony’s PSP. Both however, were rapidly put into the shade with the development, in particular, of the iPhone and the rise of the app.
