Ally Bank now at the Windows Phone Store

Ally Bank

A couple of weeks ago, we found out that Ally Bank was in the final stages of completing their Windows Phone 8 application. If you’re a customer, the wait is over. The Ally mobile banking app is now available at the Windows Phone Store. It puts everyday banking tasks at your fingertips.

What can you do with the initial version of this app? You can:

  • Deposit checks with Ally eCheck Deposit
  • Transfer money between your Ally and non-Ally accounts
  • Find nearby ATMs

You’ll need the same username and password you set up for Online Banking to use the app.

Ally Bank serves more than 1 million customer accounts, so we’re glad to have them onboard with Windows Phone. The app is a free download at the Windows Phone Store. Check it out if you’re an Ally customer and let us know what you think in the comments!

Thanks for the tip, King B!

Great article Mark! :-)

carlosrdd says:

Should we just give up on Citibank coming to WP... Everytime I see a bank app....

kurtd says:

Should we give up on pnc and Schwab as well. Probably we keep emailing and posting on their social sites.

tribexx says:

And US bank....

fbendotti says:

PNC and Ameritrade please

UnnDunn says:

There is already a [url="http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/td-ameritrade/2457f73c-a383-... Ameritrade[/url] app. It's kinda shit, but it's better than nothing.

SocalTouch says:

I have been hitting them on twitter, if more do the same it may put it on their radar.

Jazmac says:

I wish I could use it.

aitt says:

Now if Capital One could get on board. I love Chase bank, but after seeing this layout I wouldn't mind a revamped UI like this. This looks sleek

omullins says:

Agreed. Ridiculous a huge bank like Capital One keeps brushing off requests for WP app.

CJ Thunder says:

I need capital one and their sharebuilder. Talk about major grr. Chase would be better if it saved my password and had a pin too.

mab664 says:

USAA* ftw (as far as cloud banks go)

89caps says:

The example accounts are always loaded with $$$

RyanAMG says:

the mint app was the same way. must be nice :)

damo579 says:

Another bank on WP before td bank.......

TiLoBrown says:

I too feel your pain :(

RBC app will be available in the next week though!

MediaCastleX says:

Should I just switch to ally? =/

Kieta says:

I got excited until I saw it was for banking and not their auto finance.

RyanAMG says:

can you not login with your auto account? I only have Chase for Auto and I'm able to login.

theonedunn says:

No, I tried and the FAQ says it won't work. Prove me wrong and I'll appreciate it :)

alvarezjpr says:

Whoa!...don't post pictures of my bank account!....oh wait, it is missing 2 zeros, it should be $000,056.02...

 

Seriously now....we need capitalone360 app on wp.

Darren Walsh says:

Are you listening AIB Ireland!!!!

joe_easton says:

Seems like every week are get a few official apps like this; it is just a matter of time until we have almost all of them.  I agree that we need Capitol One, etc.  Once we get those, the smaller banks will follow.

rodneyej says:

I just want my credit union, Fort Worth Community Credit Union, to make a app for WP...
.......................
These local credit unions are so small there might just be a handful of us using WP devices... I wonder just how many people in my credit union are using WP, and if there is a way I can convince my CU to make a app..

DWTrump says:

I'm wondering the same for my credit union (currently Coastal Federal CU, but considering a switch to Truliant). I would think it may be even tougher to get a credit union to do a WP app until the market share is really big. Their dev staffs are probably pretty small compared to the larger banks (assuming they don't outsource it) and being that they are typically member-owned, they may need extra justification for that kind of expenditure for "only a few users." Dammit!

Consider First Tech Federal Credit Union. Great WP app and what better institution for a tech geek?

theonedunn says:

Switched from my FW CU to wells Fargo and couldn't be happier

rodneyej says:

Yeah but I'm with FWCCU... You were with FWCU.. They both exist.

Lana Malhas says:

When is NFCU gonna have an app for Windows Phone?!?

nadoj says:

I agree! This is the one and only bank that I use!

HarveyDent89 says:

Looks really nice, I'm still holding hope my local bank will release an app for WP

Shad0wguy says:

Looks like Capital One is on track to be the last major bank without a Windows Phone app.

In Limbo says:

Anyone else have their fingers crossed for M&T?

N9Andy says:

Brilliant, just closed my account after being with them for 2 years. Pain in the arse not being able to do certain things. Only good things were some interest on my checking (tiny amounts though) and getting ATM fees reimbured every month. Other than that, terrible. Nice that the app came out though!

psamf24 says:

I opened an account with them the same day I saw the article they were working on a app and what you. Just said got me worry but anyway I'm just going to give them a spin.

Candide yams says:

I've been with them for almost two years and they've been great so far. Great customer service.

ricardios says:

I love Ally bank. The key is to have another bank account like Chase so you can have a branch to go to. I love the Atm fee reimbursements. Go to any atm and you'll get paid back for the fees.

JPDVM2014 says:

+1 I mainly use my ally account, but have a td bank account in case I need to deposit cash.

grandmalfunk says:

Cool, just got it!

armyvet66629 says:

Would be nice if they included auto finance. Useless for me until then

I don't see the find ATM feature

moc426 says:

I can login, but shows nothing for my available balance, fail.

jrnag2 says:

Discover and Marquette bank both need to make apps for Windows Phone

Aashish13 says:

Want more Indian banking apps on WP Axis,ICICI, Punjab National bank and Bank of India too.

EJP86 says:

Just sent US Bank an e-mail about getting an app in the WP8 app store. 

I wish they had one!

Sakitumi says:

Read this post ING Romania!

U234 says:

Need Citi bank and PNC!

fredmarkle says:

Ally is great, so glad its finally on WP

Darkness690 says:

No WP7 app? Guess I'll have to wait to use this until after I upgrade.

WP7 is practically dead as a doornail

Denegar says:

This alone is a reason to switch banks!

Awesome been waiting for this for a while. Now where is PNC?

ricardios says:

Makes sense for Ally to build a WP app. They are a virtual bank, not brick and mortar. App works great so far.

ResonantEcho says:

I was fortunate that Bank of America jumped on the Windows Phone bandwagon at the very beginning. Glad to see more banking applications being made available.

jobinthomas says:

Now if PNC would create an app as well. My wife would be much happier

lesd777 says:

Arvest bank please
