OpenBank, an example of how bank apps for iPad should be

Many banks have already opted for a version for iPad, although in most cases we end up finding a mirror of the web version, without taking advantage of the resources that a tablet can offer or enrich the functions for this type of user. This is why I have been impressed by the openBank iPad app, developed by the Santander Group’s Technology area and capable of offering clients a new concept of how to manage their finances, making the most of the iPad’s functionalities.

It is an application that seeks to offer a basic service for 80% of Openbank customers, who do not need to enter the Web to carry out their most frequent operations: know the status of their accounts, control the spending of their cards, make transfers , keep track of your investments (Funds, Plans, Securities) and be able to contract the basic products that Openbank offers.

The application has three initial options: – Start. Global position and Products. Global position of the customer, displaying the products at once, with colors for each of them and the possibility of scrolling with the finger to go from one to the other and to see the movements, in more or less detail. On cards you can see what is available and what is available in a small graphic. Move your money for free. To request a transfer from a customer account in another entity, transfer money between customer accounts at Openbank and transfer money to a regular account designated as such by the customer on the Web.‚Äď Scale match your money. It is the area of ‚Äč‚Äčcommercial offers, where Openbank customers are offered products and services of interest and the possibility of contracting them from the iPad. As a novelty, the customer can see on the screen, for example, the amount that will report investing now so much money in a deposit or account.A good example of how to adapt a need efficiently.
