I’ve been using a friends’ iPad for a day and I must say, the app that excited me the most, apart from Instagram, was the FNB Banking app. I’ve always read tweets from Lelo Boyana (@MsLeloB) about how awesome it is. So finally I got the chance to try it out!
The first thing I did was to transfer money. Before realising that I could do this I tweeted the FNB guy (@RBJacobs) asking him how I could link accounts without going to the bank (the prospect of driving all the way to town to link accounts was too much for me.) I realised that I didn’t need to link accounts. I simply log on and make a once-off payment! Adding beneficiaries can also be done, I didn’t need that though.
I was also thrilled that I could see all my transactions without having to go through my huge file of printed statements. Environmentally friendly and chic! Another feature I like is that you can buy airtime and electricity on the app. How awesome? Now I don’t have to go to the shops!
Lastly, I was really impressed that I could make phone calls and send messages at lower rates than normal! Calling the FNB Call Centre is also absolutely free on the app.
This app is nothing short of spectacular. Now I know exactly why FNB was awarded the world’s most innovative bank. I just know the other banks are gonna follow suit, but will they match FNB? Not a chance.
Banking from the comfort of our own beds in our lifetime!
Sadly, the iPad is going back to its rightful owner. I’m definitely saving up for my own! Luckily the app is also available on Android, Nokia and BlackBerry
