It's 2019. It's time for a web app 😡

I know, but usually these things take time and @AndreasK doesn’t really have a track record for repeating the same things over and over. And although they are not the fastest, they definitely delivered what they said they would. This thread started pretty much as a provocation put some pressure on them and I think they are aware how a web app is important and confident they are working on it. But thanks to you and all who keep posting about it and hold on to that level of pressure.

I also think that a Web App is a must!! Not only for the situations you loose your phone etc. But also for trading! I would love to be able to check my investments on my PC with some nice charts (Like M1) this will also help me for my youtube videos a computer screen recording looks better than a mobile one.

+1. A web app is a must indeed in case the app does not even launch on your phone. For me v6.25, v6.26 and v6.27 crashes straight after launch on my android phone, no chance of even logging back in after clearing the cache. So much for access to your bank account. This could happen to anyone anytime! How can you have access to your account (to your money!) then?

I disagree. I’m locked out of the app because of an email problem and haven’t been able to find any way around it.
I’ve tried other channels and guess what: «go to the app and solve everything!»
if anyone has any advice, I’d be happy to hear/read.

That’s your point of view, but why not try to understand that some people are really whishing a web application.
Even if it’s old-fashioned, it’s still very practical in many situations.
This is a major drawback of the revolt from my point of view and I will probably abandon it if for this reason if the situation continues.

A web app is absolutely not old-fashioned. Yes, it would be old-fashioned to offer just a web app and no mobile integration or a shitty mobile app that more or less just displays the web app (as done by many banks). But that doesn’t make a web app old-fashioned. Indeed the open web is the most widely used and available platform of all.

+1 most financial tools (trading, FX) are irrelevant without a secondary access to your account. Personally, I do not feel safe enough to move more of my savings on Revolut without - and this is a real shame, since the service is good.

I agree with MTR01.
The secondary access path is a necessity. And as my family experience with the “traditional bank” last few days, it can be a matter of life or forced on you “bankruptcy”.
If :r: want to increase its presence on the market. They have to have Web access as well.

I have this issue too, I’m away working with work i have £20 left on my card so need to top up. my phone fell into a oil tank at work.

Id you sorting this problem out before i resort to scavenge in bins for food…

Second this. It’s a bit difficult to access the account without any Android or iOS device. Not all android emulators can be trusted, and there’s no other way for people without compatible smartphone.

I know: the most people don’t want to use a pc, but I think - a browser app is useful and you could manage your money better on a pc than on a smartphone.

I know an online bank, where you could authorise the login process on your pc with the mobile app. For people without a smartphone you could get an oldtime message (SMS) - for this method you have to pay.
