UK bank Barclays has released another app for Windows Phone, but this second offering is for its Pingit service. Pingit enables customers to easily send and/or receive funds using just their mobile device. The best part is anyone can use the app and service, even if they bank with another establishment. All that's required is a UK mobile number and you're all set to send and receive funds.
Here are some highlighted features of the Barclays Pingit app, according to the Windows Phone Store listing:
- Send up to £1,500 a day / receive up to £5,000 a day
- Personalize your payments with a picture or message
- Pay businesses who accept Barclays Pingit payments
It's also possible to use the Barclays Pingit app to send and receive payments from even more people through Paym. Paym, if you're not familiar with the name, is the UK payments service done entirely through mobile devices. It enables account-holders to pay friends, family or other parties without having to abstract bank details and other personal information.
Barclays Pingit is a neat service and we strongly recommend downloading the official app on Windows Phone.
