HSBC rolls-out banking app on Android and Blackberry


Successful iPhone personal banking app is made available to customers using other devices

HSBC has made its First Balance personal banking app available to Android and Blackberry users following its successful launch for the iPhone earlier this year.

Using the app, developed by technology services company Monitise, the bank’s customers can check their balance, view details of the last six transactions on the account and top up prepay credit on up to five registered mobile phones.

Monitise chief operating officer Mike Keyworth said: “We are committed to helping businesses provide secure, robust and engaging mobile solutions to their customers. HSBC UK has acknowledged this commitment in selecting us to work with them in the development of Fast Balance and we are delighted to be supporting them in this project.”
