Exclusive: Banking apps aren’t killing the banks

santander- 1

We’ve just had the results of the latest survey from our friends at One Point Global that we are keen to share with you.

The purpose of the survey was to find out if people had stopped visiting bank branches.  Considering the growth in mobile banking and predictions that mobile banking will have overtaken all other forms of banking in the next four years, the results are surprising.

Here’s the press release on the survey results:


77% of banking app users visited a bank in the past month

12th November 2015 – We love mobile at OnePoint Global ( We also love our banking clients; most major UK high street banks use our mobile survey platform. Using our own tools, we love to test our platform as often as we can, so we asked a few questions of people who use banking apps in the US and UK.

OnePoint Global found that 77% of people who have a banking app, visited a bank in the past month. Does this mean they don’t use their banking app? No, 97% of them used their banking app at least a few times a month, with 51% using it several times a week. It seems that banking apps haven’t alienated customers from their high street bank. Instead, they use their banking app to keep an eye on their finances, with 62% of people using the app for checking their balance more than anything else.


We asked people what they liked about their banking app, and the most frequent answers were Easy and Convenient, showing the banks have found a good solution for busy people.
