Stan­dard Char­tered bank­ing app for iPhone and iPad

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TECHNOLOGY -

STAn­DARD Char­tered Bank cus­tomers can now ac­cess its bank­ing ser­vices from an iPhone and iPad.

They will fist have to down­load the Breeze mo­bile bank­ing ap­pli­ca­tion from the Ap­ple App store. Stan­dard Char­tered says Breeze has been de­signed to mir­ror its on­line bank­ing ser­vices both in terms of fea­tures and ex­pe­ri­ence.

To start us­ing the ser­vices, users will have to log in us­ing their on­line bank­ing user­name and pass­word. They will be able to ac­cess a num­ber of ser­vices such as set­tle loan and util­ity pay­ments, trans­fer money to a third party ac­count and check the sta­tus of their credit card.

Also, with the app’s Cal­en­dar fea­ture users will be able to view trans­ac­tions for all ac­counts and set up re­minders for bill pay­ments.

Other fea­tures in­clude an ATM Locator func­tion which utilises the phone’s built-in GPS and map to point users to the near­est ma­chine and a Wish­list func­tion to help users cre­ate and man­age sav­ing plans.

The app is pro­tected by the same bank-grade se­cu­rity used on its on­line bank­ing site, which in­cludes in­dus­trial strength en­cryp­tion and two-fac­tor au­then­ti­ca­tion.

As an ad­di­tional se­cu­rity mea­sure, you can­not log in to the same ac­count si­mul­ta­ne­ously on the PC and Breeze.

Stan­dard Char­tered plans to re­lease a ver­sion for the An­droid early next year. —
