Banks have also embraced this trend, offering customers the opportunity to see their balance, full transaction history, and make person to person payments without having to wait in line. This is great news for busy people who simply do not have the time to visit their bank within working hours. Currently, Lloyds has the best app, closely followed by Barclays, Natwest, and Santander.
