Finally! update for mobile payments Finally have this feature! Been waiting over a year. I had it on my Galaxy S5 ironically last year but for some reason never came to the note 4 or s6 but its finally here and I'm ecstatic. Works great.
MasterCard is missed When will MasterCard access be restored? My Westjet MasterCard was my go to card. Now I am opting for my CIBC Visa because their app works.
Improvements being made and having wallet open to ANY phone and ANY carrier is a huge step in the right direction. The app could still go for a bit of an updated look and a quicker way to access wallet would up the convenience factor as right now it's still quicker to pull out wallet and pull out card then go through the ~5 clicks in the app required to actually get ready for payment. A widget or shortcut on the homescreen direct to wallet or a specific card would be nice.
Yes! Finally mobile payments and cheque deposits. Works great! I've used this app more than ever in last little while. I love the payments and cheque features. As always, transferring funds, e-transfers, and pre set payees are so easy. Bummer that rooted phones can't use the mobile payment option, but I understand and appreciate the security reasons. Must have for any RBC client.
Yes!!! That's more like it. The first time this app came out it offered mobile payments to bell customers only. But now it appears to work with everyone regardless. Now your getting it. I'm impressed. I didn't expect RBC to roll out mobile payments before Apple, Samsung and Android. This is a pleasant surprise.
No wallet for rooted users, another silly RBC decision RBC Wallet is disabled for rooted users for "security reasons" 😕. Being rooted & having an unlocked bootloader allowed myself & others the ability to upgrade to the latest version of Android when there are ACTUAL security concerns; e.g. upgrading from a Stagefright vulnerable version to an unaffected rom or AOSP while others have to wait until their manufacturer or provider issue an upgrade (IF they ever do). Bad decision RBC 👎, you need better tech advisers (we know you need better Android developers).
• RBC Wallet is now available for all Android devices with OS 4.4 or higher, regardless of which mobile network you are on or which SIM card you have on your phone. You can now add any RBC Visa or Interac card to your RBC Wallet.
• You can view balance on all cards and accounts that you’ve added to your RBC Wallet.
• To help ensure our customers’ security we have disabled RBC Wallet on Android devices that have been rooted.
