6 Oct 2011

Allied Irish Bank has launched its Android app on the Android Market. The app lets banking customers log on, check their balance, transfer funds and even top up friends’ mobile credit.

A fortnight ago, AIB launched its mobile banking website, optimised for smartphones.

Stephen Sherwin, business delivery manager for the project at AIB, told, that the mobile banking site achieved more than 50,000 logins in its first 10 days.

“Our Android app went up on the Android Market yesterday – it’s still early days. We’re just starting to promote it on and our various Twitter accounts.”

Sherwin said the company is still working on its Apple iPhone app and that its launch is imminent.
