Ulster bank “aware of demand” for Windows Phone app, but “have no plans to introduce this”


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.
