What's New in Version 4.3.0
Thanks for banking with RBS!
With this update we have addressed some bugs and made general improvements.
If you are not using Touch ID you will receive a reminder to enable it after you update the app.
App is very easy to use and very glad it has Touch ID sign in. Only issues I have is how annoying it is to pay someone new- brilliant if they are already a set up payee, otherwise it is a very roundabout process that is unnecessary. Other banking apps make it much easier to pay new people. Also it's not great that once you have a payee set up you can't update the reference with each payment, you are stuck with the same reference?? Doesn't make sense. Apart from that it's great for keeping track of finances.
It really is time to drop the absolute nonsense of requiring the card reader to add new payees which destroys the concept of mobile banking! Also when paying someone allow the reference to be updated! These 2 simple changes would make using the app so much easier.
Other than that the app works fairly well, would be nice if you got notified immediately when your card is used to buy something (see Monzo bank) and transactions didn't take 3 days to show up but that's big banks for you.
Big Stupid Bank
I used the RBS Business app for years without issue as it allows you to have multiple unlinked accounts logged on to the app. RBS are forcing closure on the Business app and providing only this Personal app, which only permits linked accounts to be logged. All this despite RBS not allowing more than one Business account to be linked... just one Business account linked to several personal accounts.
Yet another example of a Big Stupid Bank shutting down services despite having no comparable replacement to offer.
I'll be off to look at other banks offerings now...
