    Not unless they build their own app. The Natwest, RBS & Ulster apps are all developed by Monilink. We would only see these apps for the following banks who support Monilink: NatWest, RBS, HSBC, First Direct, Lloyds TSB, Alliance & Leicester and Ulster Bank. Any others would be developed independently, unless they join. This site indicates they are in talks with all the major banks though, so it may happen at some stage:

    I have used the barclays.mobi website a few times for online banking and it is very good. Obviously it isn't as good as a native app, but it does the job and better than finding an ATM.

    In regards to the security, I don't know how safe it is, but I doubt Barlcays would release something if it was going to be easy to hack into.

    Hi there,

    There's a mobile banking app for barclays being released (i'm one of the developers).

    Find more information at mobilebarclays.com

    Hope that you find it useful!

    Many thanks!

    I'd say just as safe as from any browser.

    I think we're all hoping Barclays are going to follow in the footsteps of other banks and design a proper app instead of the useless 'mobile-optimised website' they keep fobbing us off with!

    I use RBS and Natwest apps and they are so easy to use and no effort required.

    Come on Barclays :mad:
