Chase app for Windows Phone in the works?

Chase Bank coming to Windows Phone?

There has been a discussion going on over in the WPCentral Forums for some time about the hopes of a Chase banking app would find it's way to the Windows Phone platform.  A recent email response one of our readers received from Chase gives us hope that a Chase Bank App is in the works for Windows Phone. Currently Chase only offers an app for the iPhone and Android devices but in an email response to one of our readers, that may change.

According to the email a Chase Internet Service Center Rep, states:

As of right now, the Chase application is only applicable with the Android and iOS platforms. We have consulted our Online Management Team and they will be implementing an application for Windows phones this July 2012.

Several European banks already have apps available over in the Windows Phone Marketplace but for the U.S. Market, Bank of America and USAA seem to be the only two currently available. Hopefully with Chase jumping on board, other banking and financial institutions will follow suit.

You can chime in on the WPCentral Forums discussion here or sound off in the comment section below if the thought of a Chase (or any other bank for that matter) app is something you'd like to see.

Thanks Sed for the tip!

I need a Citibank app. I've tried contacting some people on twitter but I never get a response.

Ninja1043 says:

Maybe now I'll use that Chase account that has been gathering dust.. :/

procen says:

I need this app, and I hope chase makes a better one than Android which is laggy.

garbro says:

Ever heard of Pageonce?

procen says:

I will try it, thanks!

MadSci2 says:

Yeah! I've been bugging them Avery few months. I would encourage everyone to keep nagging their banks and credit unions etc.
Make sure to tell them that sin e Chase is implementing as WP App thus summer you will move your business to them if your Bank doesn't do the same. They hate losing Customers and if enough of us threaten to walk moat Banks are going to have to get with the WP Program! :-)

suavemezie says:

Wells Fargo app is far more important than chase app. Anyways, good news

syncros9 says:

Yes! We desperately need a Wells Fargo app! The website actually works in a pinch, but a dedicated app would be much better.

starblade876 says:

Everyone should go bother them for one even if they don't have a WF account. I've sent in comments to Chase even though I don't have accounts with them :-P

al.cantara says:

I actually called Citibank's web n mobile support last week asking them when they intend to release their app on the WP platform.. and after explaining to her that yes, there is a third platform out there (argh!), she said that there are no plans for this. Then I expressed my disappointment coz that's all I can do for now...

antmortmitch says:

Lmao, smh at Citibank, maybe if more people complain they will finally take notice

Dusteater says:

That is good to see more banks getting on board.  I am waiting on Ally myself.  I have had multiple discussions with them and they have said they also plan on releasing a WP app, but not until the end of the year.

SuperCapeSam says:

About time!!!!!

epajet67 says:

Lovely! That and ING, Amex and Paypal would make the transition from ICS a no brainer for those who are on the fence. Just made the leap 3 days ago and iOS 5 and ICS are definitely looking outdated in so many ways. This OS is so fluid it's truely unbelievable. I never thought I would say this since my last MS product, Windows 3.1, but these folk's thinking is way ahead of the curve now.

mythos13 says:

Odd, ING in Canada has had a good Wiindows Phone since the beginning.

willied says:

ING makes a Windows Phone? :P

dtboos says:

Hopefully this is true.  I don't use them, but we need more banks to come aboard.  I'm waiting on KeyBank :o

dkp23 says:

how bout a schwab app!?

smokeyb111 says:

USAA kicks ass.....that's all I got.

laserfloyd says:

Now for Mint to make one...

CJ Thunder says:

I closed down my mint account telling them that was a reason why.

Curtieson says:

Amen. I can deal without apps for Chase or PNC since they have quality mobile sites...but I can't do ANYTHING with my Mint information.

DrSaiko says:

That's good to hear, I use that BOA app everyday. Can't wait for the Chase app since I have an account with them too.

PeterFnet says:

Hooray! It kills me that it took them this long to develop it. Many companies say they take the wait and see approach to see if a platform will succeed.
That is the worst thing they can do. I refuse to buy a phone because of what apps are available. Example, I'm not going to buy an iPhone because there is an official Starbucks app. As a consumer, I expect companies to meet the challenge and serve me on multiple platforms. (getting off soapbox and getting back to work).
Thanks for the good news WPC.

Apoc says:

I need a Capital One Bank app, need more users to bother them with me, of course the ones that bank with them

ThePKReddy says:

Now, all I need is an AMEX app!!
And Chase is probably(wishful thinking) developing this app due to their ties with Amazon and they see the Lumia 900 sales? :)

rubenbest says:

What about well fargo!

lippidp says:

Chase has provided a mobile website that has covered my mobile banking needs nicely for 5 years. I'll probably give the app a try, but unless there is a compelling reason to switch I'll stick with the the mobile site.

rbf1337 says:

I need this app. USAA already offers a wp7app and its great.

deansmilk says:

Oh thank god! I've been waiting for this app.

xmarklive says:

Its about fu&\ing time....even though I now do mobile banking which makes everything easier with text message still want an app.

5tephen says:

Awwwwwwww yeaaaahhhhh. This is the banking app I've been waiting for. Chase's deposit @mobile is the easiest to use (even easier than USAA's). 

R0NELL says:

About time I really need that app.

Gocheif says:

Chase please get this done ASAP.  Chase mobile app is the best due to Quick Deposit...
Come to think of it the ATMs are the best too; I love how you can feed in a stack of cash or checks and it will count it all up and print copies on the receipt.  Nice!

lippidp says:

They are good, but really SLOW. All other major banks have ATMs like this, FYI.

Fenon says:

About time.

Duffau says:

Would love an RBFCU app, but it's so localized that only ios has an app for them. Emailed them some time ago but no response.

Oli Gill says:

HSBC in the UK are bringing out a new mobile banking platform but omitting winphone annoyingly.

We need a site where the wpcentral team gives us an institution (voted for by us) to bug for an app, concentrating our efforts to get real results. Make it change monthly and we will have the big ones in tow soon enough!

al.cantara says:

I am 100% with you on this. I think as customers for these institutions, we have the right to demand support for the platform of our choice, at least the big ones. And I am not one to occupy anything :)

jkercado says:

Would be noce. I have my mortgagw with them. For deposit accounts, I use USAA, and they do have a WP app.

OMG55 says:

I have an account with chase. I'm excited about this as well!!! Yeh :-)

Nitaino says:

I just want Wells Fargo app

RyanDaLyon says:

I built a Chase app through app builder! If you guys want it, ill give you my developer code so you can download it for free! Just email me at ryanbordner@hotmail.com. And make sure you download app builder from the market place.

Duffau says:

Can you build one for RBFCU? I dont know if you need some sort of affiliation with them or what your status is with any bank, but seeing as how you seem to have experience in this area and chase is getting an app anyway, I thought why not ask? Anyway if there is any possibility, my email is jamespotato5@gmail.com

theman60099 says:

Is it a real app and not just a web control of their mobile site?

RyanDaLyon says:

Get AppBuilder from the Marketplace link below, open AppBuilder and enter my App ID, F58ACE , in the Shared Apps section.

cannon#WP says:

I'd love a Chase app so I can manage my accounts on the go. Hopefully other US banks like Wells Fargo, TD and Citibank join the party. Credit card providers should get on the bandwagon too.

larspassic says:

Here's what American Express said when I asked them on twitter about a Windows Phone app:

AskAmex

@larspassic @windowsphone Hi Lars, it's Olivia. Haven't heard anything yet, but we are working towards it. Will tweet u if I hear anything.

anglirich says:

Bout' time!!,

WPSteve says:

The take a photo to deposit a check feature alone would be awesome. And the instant wire transfer...

wolf1891 says:

Great news for Chase customers!  As for me though, I will just continue to enjoy the USAA app that I've had for a while now that gives me excellent access to my accounts with them.  =)
 

theman60099 says:

This is an article for CHASE bank, those for other banks need to stop bítchin in this article and just need to either email their banks or use pageonce.

OMG, this is awesome news! :)

oasis1489 says:

very exciting news!  i, too, sent them a request for a wp7 app awhile back and got a similar reply except with no mention of an upcoming app.  glad to hear all of our bothering actually went somewhere (although very slowly).

Tegument says:

pageonce works for now but would like a commerce bank app for sure

Miistercoool says:

Finally some news on the Chase App! I've been waiting since I had my HD7 windows phone beginning of last year and now I'm here with my Titan still waiting!! Come on Chase hurry up!

RayWP7 says:

Banks that haven't released apps won't know how popular a platform if you don't visit on your mobile device. I doubt they use data from compiled sources and make decisions based also on actual analytics in house. I know we do. If you don't use mobile site, you should! Still, I'm hopeful for chase. The mobile site is functional but that would improve with a WP7 UI.

I got this email from chase:

Chase will launch a new app for Windows Mobile in early August 2012.  Windows Mobile will be available for customers with Win OS 7.5 or above.
