I've been using the Virtual Wallet app on Android since it first came out. Works pretty good. It makes it so easy to manage my money on my phone. The new Check Deposit is really cool. I just hover over and it just takes the picture for me. If only people gave me more checks.
I cannot really condone the use of this application based on how it behaves when inserting your credentials. I am a bit of a security conscious user and I use Keepass to keep track of my credentials. As a result, the password is complex enough to take quite a bit of time to actually type out. I use an application to insert the username and password, but every time I go to insert the password through the Android application, it will reset, forcing me to put it in manually. VERY inconvenient and also bad practice; it encourages using a less secure password.
New permissions needed Tried to check my account this morning & was told it needed permission to "make & manage phone calls" or I would not be allowed to use it. why would my banking app need to make or manage ANY phone calls? Much less deny me access over it?! Either it's a virus/scam or I'm completely disgusted with this app.
Fix it! Update- the mobile deposit feature now works quite well. Sadly, the app is still unable to remember my username like it should. Almost !Would someone please fix this app?! The "save user name" and "quick view" functions never work. I'll turn them on, and the next time I open the app, they're turned off. It would also be great if the camera would focus so I could use the "mobile deposit" option. That's a really handy feature, but it rarely works because the app can't control the camera focus.
Good bye virtual valet. Absolutely unacceptable!!! After last update, the application asking for access to your pictures and media and permission to manage phone calls. If you don't allow to these , the app just stop working and get blocked.
While the concept is great, it still needs some work. There are just way too many bugs and glitches in this app to make it anywhere past 4 stars. It's constantly crashing, especially in money bar view. It occasionally doesn't recognize my login, the same one I always use and asks me to create a virtual wallet account. Sometimes it doesn't recognize that I have two accounts so one account will go missing in the app. Every time I login, it asks which account I would like to view and then asks if I'd like to make it the default account. I choose yes every time.
- Check Deposit Now Includes Automatic Image Capture
Now it’s even easier to deposit checks using the PNC Mobile Banking app. When using Mobile Deposit, position your check within the on-screen guides and allow the app to capture the check image automatically.
