I’m sure I’m not the only one in the US jumping for joy. For months my mother has been teasing me with her Chase Mobile® app for Windows Phone, which according to my buddy Hayato, is actually a lot better than the Android app (and that’s saying quite a bit). Unfortunately, the Wells Fargo app has the same ugly design as on iOS, and Android too no doubt. It doesn’t really feel polished enough, even though it’s fully functional and pretty snappy. I would think that after taking this long to develop it, we’d at least get a cool sleek new design to one-up the other platforms. Well, you know what they say about beggars… (no, not that they’ll spend it on booze).
Download the app here in the Windows Phone store.
