Good app. Registration simple and the app is simple and easy to use. The entry of the DOB at registration time is ridiculous though. Why can't I just enter my DOB instead of having to tab back over 300 times to be able to get back to the correct year. Also there are 106 houses on my postcode. So it would be better if I could enter my house number instead of having to tab through a large number of addresses to find the right house.
(EDIT 28 Nov 16 - Latest release now works with Android 7. I've change my rating to reflect the app now that it's working.) Since upgrading to Android 7 the app refuses to open. Updated 20 Oct 16 - It looks like Barclays has abandoned future development of this app as there's still no news of a fix for Android 7 users.
Breaking on Nougat 7.1 would there be a fix? Nexus 6P : the app crashes constantly. Last update was in march 2016, makes me wonder if this app is kept up to date and would be updated anytime soon? UPDATE : IT works now but it's not really contactless? It still needs a bpay device? I thought that should have been my contactless NFC enabled phone with this app.
Bpay app Brilliant when set up. A nightmare if you get a new phone and want to re set up the app. I did it in the end, but regrettably Barclays help centre didn't understand the product and could only refer me to there on line site which didn't help either.
Despite emailing customer services, just get stock response saying it is compatible with Android and iOS. Come on Barclay's, your other websites work fine with Android N, get it sorted and quick please and please improve your customer service. Just tried the new version and coming up
They vanish (steal?) your money DON'T USE. They keep disappearing money from my account after I top up. The only reason I haven't binned my device is I want to make them give me a written explanation of why money keeps getting vanished, a refund and a profound apology in writing. Once I have these things I will pass copies to the press and Tweet dozens of times a day to show how shoddy their service is. Bankers!
