The app is good no lie! But you have to understand that not all people their touch screens work well. Their are areas on the screen which aren't accessible. So one has to rotate the screen in order to use the app in the landscape layout. This is just impossible with this app. So I just request for you guys to make this app also accessible in the landscape mode for people like us too! Thanks

Initially, it was the best and simple app. Now, you are literally forced to be all Safaricom. From internet to calls, so that you can access the app. You can't make savings or do a purchase via the app. You need to be within the Safaricom internet to access this and many more. Using other internet, has become inconvenient. Even their customer care is challenging to reach out to. Need to do more.

Great app, improving everytime. The interface, and the usability is very user-friendly. If only you could allow the app sign-in to two accounts, for dual sims like the M-PESA for business app, and also add a reversal button at the very end of the transaction wizard, then this app would belong to big leagues such as X, IG, FB etc..

What's new

Thank you for using the M-PESA app. We are always working on new features, improvements, and bug fixes. In this version we are unifying the send money experience to enable customers to send money to M-PESA users and users on other mobile money networks in the same journey.
