first direct Banking on the go
By first direct
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
We know that you like to manage your money when you’re ‘on the go’. That’s why we’ve created this app. It works seamlessly with your mobile operating system, with access to more features than ever before.
Our app allows you to:
• view balances and up to your last 90 transactions
• make transfers between your accounts with us
• create new payments to friends or businesses
• view, amend and cancel standing orders
• view and cancel and Direct Debits
• make the most of Touch ID (with a compatible device)
You’ll still need to log on to full Internet Banking at firstdirect.com regularly to access all services. We recommend you do this at least every 14 days. Some of the Internet Banking services that you can only access by logging on at firstdirect.com are:
• full statement information
• details of monthly charges, fees and interest
• sending, receiving and viewing attachments of secure messages
To use this first direct Banking on the go app you need to be a first direct customer and have set up your telephone banking security.
We don’t charge you for this app, but we can’t say the same for your network provider, who may charge you for downloading and usage. You’ll be responsible for these charges.
We recommend that you don’t use this app abroad, but if you do, you’ll need to make sure that it’s permitted by local law, and remember your network provider’s charges may be higher.
The app may be withdrawn at any time; we will tell you if this is going to happen.
It’s important that you only download apps in accordance with the terms and conditions that you have agreed with Apple.
What's New in Version 2.0.4
We're always working on the app and this version has some minor bug fixes and improvements.
Too Long Winded
I have been with First Direct for 25 years and have seen all the on line access platforms come and go. Latest iOS version just has too many steps involved to get what you need done whilst on the go. The 'What's been going on' screen is just the account statement screen repeated unnecessarily and needs dismissing every time you view an account. Transferring money is also long winded. I have used the First Direct App every day for years and my heart sinks now when I tap the icon of this latest version. Hope this gets sorted in a more streamlined version.
Great improvement but...
Needs Touch ID for iPad desperately!!!! Don't see the point of the 'What's been going on" section if it just shows a total amount. This section should show all transactions since last log on in detail. The pending transactions are greyed out and hard to read on the white background. And messages needs the ability to 'securely' message you. Apart from that, great improvement from the last app... almost there.
Easy to use, quick and simple.
Not sure what some of the negative reviewers are doing but I find the latest iteration of the First Direct app to be straightforward, quick and easy to use. I've been a customer since the start and this is by far the simplest method yet that First Direct have come up with for online banking.
