Natwest and RBS to withdraw their UWP app in 60 days

Once again it appears that even UWP apps are not safe from the Windows Phone appocolypse, as both Natwest and the Royal Bank of Scotland have today informed their Windows Phone users that their banking app is being withdrawn in 60 days.

The message, delivered by text, reads:

In 60 days, your mobile banking app on your Windows device will stop working and is no longer available in the store. To continue banking on the go you can download the app on an iOS or Android device alternatively you can continue to use online banking for your everyday banking needs.

The apps, which are as related as the banks, were full-featured and well regarded, with scores above 4, offering features such as the ability to draw money from an ATM without your card which would be difficult to replicate from a mobile website.

RBS Group recommends users switch to iOS and Android, and given that Windows Mobile is no longer being supported even by Microsoft this appears to be a more than timely suggestion.
