Hi
I have noticed that the app store doesn't have any mobile banking apps.
If i go to the natwest website there is the option to download the app from there.
Can any one tell me if this would work?
Also can i download a national lootery app

You need to ask NatWest if they're going to make the app available for the Fire.

Amazon won't pay Google for the app store as they have their own.

Tried to contact NatWest by email but it is impossible, I used my NatWest App so much on my iPod, I hope I'm not going to regret going for the Kindle Fire? Amazon need to make an effort to get the Banks on board, same with Sky with their news app and sports app, have written to them to ask will they please add their apps to this platform, will they?

Why not change your bank to one who will provide their app for your Kindle.

If the Kindle is less than 30 days old, you can return it to Amazon for full price refund.
If the Kindle is older than that, then you must have been using it and getting good value from it, for more than a month despite not being able to get one particular app. So I cant understand why now you think it is no good??
AND you can still access your bank account through the web-browser, so you are not completely cut off.

You can through the websites.
I have no idea if my bank has an app or not.

Why would I need the app when I can sign into the Natwest website ?

Can someone tell me the advantages and/or disadvantages of using the app ?

I use the Natwest app on a Windows phone and I have to say it is very convenient. You enter your customer number, password etc when first setting it up and then it is accessible with just one password (or two if you set one to open your phone, as you should). You can see balances and statements instantly and make payments and transfers (and get money from a cash machine without a card). I was persuaded to try it by my local manager who said that once you've used it you will very rarely need to access the website or come into the branch. I have to say she was right. This is one occasion that Natwest have done something right (I don't work for them...).

ChrisJ says:
Sorry, K, but off the top of my head, no I cant tell you any advantages... But there again, i cant think of any disadvantages.

Hang on... Maybe... There might be something about storing bank passwords in the memory of the internet browser. It MIGHT be safer to have a single purpose app, rather than a multi-purpose app like a web browser.

Me too. I always use the web site so I can see the secure padlock.

@ferret through the website I enter login name and password, then complete a random selction of three characters from another password before i gain access to my accounts. I would never allow access to anything to do with my bank with only one level of password. Having your card cloned (twice happened to me) is an exceedingly irritating and inconvenient experience but it is easy to prove it was not me - e.g. Not being in South Africa or Southampton - but i think it may be harder to convince the bank when a "thief" clears your bank account out.
I'm probably a bit too paranoid about it...

I'm sure I'll change my mind at some point though as electronic payments become more prevalent.

@IKMP The password is on the phone so presumably not accessible without having the handset in your possession. It's when you lose your phone or have it stolen that the fun would start. I'm hoping you would be OK if you told your bank straight away and remotely deleted the app (although of course a canny thief would have removed the sim card). I have been very reluctant to use electronic banking but it really is so convenient.

Sorry, Billy, i cant see what itv has to do with bank accounts??

Try asking in your own thread. Or better still do a search through the forum for itv to see the answer.

More and more secure apps are heading towards two factor authentication. I.e. Something you know AND something you have.
The mobile phone is a useful "what you have". But be careful (VERY careful) of loosing it!

For example: to add a new payment person when using the web interface, my bank rings my mobile to check. If I was adding a new person to pay via the app on my phone, then a thief could do that with just the phone.
(Except my phone has a sign in code, which if you get wrong 3 times will wipe the phone clean).
An app on a different device is therefore safer than an app on my phone.

The Natwest app will also lock after five failed password attempts. You then have to download it again and go through the usual security login process. If your phone is lost or stolen the bank will immediately lock it after being informed. I'm happy (so far) with its security.
