There are hundreds of banking apps on the market and each of them provides different functions and UX. Is it possible to choose the best one?

 

Why do we use mobile banking apps?

Before we rate any banking app we have to learn more about the users’ needs. According to the research, Americans most often use mobile applications to check balance and transaction history. In other words - to manage the cash flow.

Apart from finance management, it is important for users to be able to make safe and easy transactions in the app. Over half of the American users claim this is one of the most essential functions for them. This and other reasons for using a mobile banking app are presented on the chart below.

 

Which mobile banking app is the best?

The perfect mobile banking app provides easy access to a range of products, enables 24/7 access to the money, and has a great UX. Furthermore, it is also extremely secure. According to the Retail Banker International ranking, the best mobile banking app in 2019 was IKO of PKO Bank Polski - the biggest Polish bank.
