    Hi all, new to all this so I will start with an easy one for now. I have The Desire but was wondering if there is an app out there for Nat West Banking like they do for the i-phone. Anyone???:confused:

    no there is not, their app is iPhone only, for the time being.

    android isnt as popular as the iPhone OS yet, and it seems to be that developers just arnt bothering .

    wish i still had my iPhone

    psh, thats not true. If there were not over 50,000 apps in the market, many from large developers, and the fact that lots of iPhone apps can be gotten on android then I would probably agree. Buts there are, so I disagree :p

    I too would like a Natwest app! The iPhone one sounds pretty good. Has anyone contacted them about it?

    I e-mailed Nat West about this, they said they were developing an Android app but didn't yet know when it would be available. They are sure to want to do this because of huge takeup of Android

    They're working on it :eek:)

    They worked on the Nokia one first, as research showed that it was the OS most used by its core customer base, followed by iPhone because it's 'cool' to have it, and are now working on android version. (They're all being created by a third party company called Ribot)

    If you go on their mobile banking page there is a bit which says about apps for other OSs and to contact them to be told when an app is available.

    But don't waste your time as it has already been posted that they ARE working on an Android app and they don't have a facility right now to contact people who are interested!

    OFI please don't take this personally but , What do you mean "they don't have a facility right now to contact people who are interested!"

    surely if people have notified them they are interested then they are going to have a list of "interested peoples emails"? so they can email us when it's ready, or do NATWEST not have email? I know my natwest bank manager sends me regular emails...

    They just won't add your email onto any database to contact you once an app is available. It's not something they are going to do.
    They said to just keep an eye out for it on the website and it will be done when it is done :p

    I just contacted Natwest aswell about lack of Android support.

    The more people that contact, the more they will take notice.

    Making some noise could mean the difference between the development taking 6 months or 6 weeks......

    I let Nat West know that I want an app for Android when they asked for feedback about their service.

    I find I can use the NatWest internet banking page perfectly well to access my a/c, check balances, pay bills etc. First direct, however, won't talk to any android browsers I have thrown at it!
    :confused:

    I've not been brave enough to try that yet.

    The Natwest system will throw you out after one incorrect attempt at login (well, it has to me more than once before). And I find the combination of softkeyboard and a webpage login screen prone to just this. Think I'd rather wait for an app with a nice big login screen. Nice to know it's coming at least.

    Maybe I'm just chicken.

    I have no trouble accessing my First Direct account through the internet page, I simply bookmarked the login page and start from there....

    A quick bump for this as been waiting nearly a year. Time to hassle Natwest some more.

    NatWest - HTC Support

    The link pops up at the end of registering for text alerts which I've done in the meantime.

    Your wish is my command, copy of email sent today:

    "When are Nat West finally going to get around to developing an Application for Android mobile phones? You have had an iPhone app for over 6 months, despite the fact the Android operating system is spreading far faster than Apple. I can only assume that this is because your mobile strategy is being driven by iPhone luvvies in the marketing department rather than serving the needs of you clients." :)
