Emirates NBD’s new BB10 app is available for download on Blackberry App World. The new App builds on the recent launch of the bank’s mobile banking apps across all platforms, including Apple iOS, BlackBerry and Android, where the mobile banking app recorded more than 60,000 downloads across these platforms.
An essential addition to the bank’s e-portfolio system, the mobile banking app enables customers to manage all banking operations including accounts, transfers and utility payments. Other services include currency converter, ATM & Branch locator and news about promotions.
Emirates NBD’s mobile banking app has also been linked to its Internet Banking service, enabling customers to access a host of Internet Banking services through their smartphones. These include viewing financial summary, scheduled transactions, checking loan details, and transferring funds to Emirates NBD, Emirates Islamic Bank or other banks in the UAE.
