UBA has scored another first in the financial services industry in Nigeria , as its U-Mobile has become the first mobile banking application from a Nigerian Bank to be hosted on the Apps Store for Apple IOS devices.
Listing on Apple App Store underscores the quality of UBA U-Mobile application. Only applications that are reliable perform as expected and are based on a set of technical and design criteria, published on Apple App Store. UBA U-Mobile met all the requirements and was listed on Apple App Store in December 2011.
The Apple App Store is an online store where apple iPhone, iPad and iPod users can purchase applications for their apple mobile devices. UBA customers who use Apple iPhone and iPad can download U-Mobile for free from any Apple App Store. Once downloaded, setup and activation of U-Mobile is simple.
According to Luqman Balogun, divisional head, e Banking, UBA, U-Mobile brings “complete convenience to banking. It is your bank in your pocket. Using a mobile phone, customers can manage their bank accounts, savings or current, by carrying out a wide range of financial transactions including instant funds transfer to any bank account in Nigeria, bills payment, airtime top-up, payment for goods and services, airline ticket payments, balance enquiries and viewing of transaction history, amongst others”.
All financial transactions on U-Mobile are secured by PIN and password giving customers peace of mind. U-Mobile is very convenient for making bill payments.
There are many billers on U-Mobile, making it very easy for U-Mobile users to renew their satellite TV subscription (DSTV, HiTV, etc), pay utility bills (including water, electricity and telephone) and other bills. U-Mobile users can also request bank drafts, cheque books and also stop a cheque payment from their mobile phone.
