We often report on banking apps arriving on the platform, but this time unfortunately we have the opposite problem – a bank which it appears stubbornly refuses to serve their Windows Phone using customers.
Ulster bank is a subsidiary of RBS Group, and related to Natwest, both which have Windows Phone apps.
In Ireland there appears to be demand for a Windows Phone app also, at least according to Ulster Bank’s twitter account, but the company has decided “they have no plans to introduce this.”
Windows Phone has a larger market share in Ireland than in UK, making Ulster Bank’s decision rather difficult to understand.
I suspect however the company will respond to pressure – when asked again soon after by some-one else they said:
Keep up the pressure by letting them know at their twitter account here.
