It' Snow Good? I liked the 'shake for snow' feature which is a nice touch for Xmas, but I'm not sure about the savings bonds. 1.4% & 1.6% compare well in the market, but why would I sacrifice access to my money, when I can get more interest (and gifts) by opening current and regular savings accounts with some big name banks. Atom should offer their bonds as ISAs (with the same rates), or perhaps a market leading regular saver account? Also, why not offer 5 year bonds?
Feedback Needs a complete redesign following material design guidelines (get rid of those bubbles). Bizarrely the app has voice/face login, but no fingerprint recognition! Back button doesn't work properly. Only plus side is 2% for 1 year is a good rate (but no longer offered).
Can't log in Getting increasingly annoyed with this. Now that you have finally added a login feature for people accessing from a new phone or reinstalling the app....I STILL CAN'T LOGIN!!!! Facial Recognition does not work for me anymore. It just keeps twirling!
Gimmicky, poor rate, in app lies The idea is good, but when you can get a 1 year fixed rate @1.38% from non mobile only banks, it kind of defeats the purpose. The app itself looks like something designed for a child opening their first account, not someone looking to store their savings in.Within the app there is a blatant lie regarding storing information. When you try and register and enter your details but cancel the process. It says nothing is stored, but when you try again with the same details it says you are already registered...
The Fixed term accounts are a good offering, account opening was very straightforward too which is a plus, but sadly for a bank that praises itself in focusing on mobile apps the app sucks big time. Hard to navigate, full of useless gimmicks and incredibly sluggish on my device (Nexus 6 with stock android 7.0), does not adhere to material design, back button doesn't work. Having used other bank's apps (which aren't close to perfection by any means) this must be the worst out there by a far margin
Strange layout, a long long way from Android standards. Silly Christmas jingle with falling snow - which caused my phone to crash. Would be concerned that this was the ONLY way I could get at my funds. Online I want, but phone app only?
