Bank app

i found an app called ballance , so you can see whats in your bank , now it works great for barclays bank , but i do wonder, if the data that it needs for it to access your acount, could be sent to the developer or anyone else for that matter , :thinking:

It's entirely possible, if the app is written to do so. I don't think it's common, but there have been apps discovered as passing along data when they had no legitimate business to do so.

What kind of a reputation does this app have? I couldn't find it. Can you get an app proprietary to the bank you use? I'd be more inclined to go with that if it's available.

I'm very hesitant to make bank transactions via a phone app, so would suggest you only use Bank-authorized apps for making transactions.

However, if you simply want to view/monitor all your accounts in one place, you might want to try MINT.COM app. The Mint.com app just views/monitors and alerts you to activities in all your linked accounts. It can't do any transactions. I find this useful and gives me peace of mind.

If you're worried about security, i've just finished off a mobile banking app that allows you to check your balances and statements.

All information is kept between your device and barclays.co.uk. I know you're taking my word for it but i invite people to use network tools to check.

Anyway, if you decide to get it, let me know what you think, there's more in the pipeline since this is the first release.

Oh, of course, the app is called Blue Money.
