AIB launches phone-friendly banking site, with apps to come

AIB has unveiled a mobile-friendly version of its Internet Banking site, with Android and iPhone apps to be launched shortly.

AIB HAS LAUNCHED a mobile-friendly version of its internet banking site to cater for smartphone users, and is to launch iPhone and Android apps for users in the coming weeks, the bank has said.

The new mobile banking service will cater to the bank’s 650,000 customers who have already signed up to its internet banking platform.

The bank said the development of the mobile site had been prompted by a significant growth in the number of users accessing its internet banking service through smartphone browsers.

The mobile service houses many of the main features from its ‘desktop’ equivalent, such as the ability to transfer cash between accounts and pay utility bills.

“Customers are demanding that all service providers evolve with this trend to provide their services in a way that is increasingly convenient to them. Banks are no different,” AIB’s Robert Mulhall said.

“We know that our customers are already using their smartphones to access Internet banking while on the move. This development seeks to meet the needs of our customers now and give them the convenience of banking at a time that suits them.”

The site can be accessed at or via

The launch of the mobile site has coincided with the launch of the bank’s Twitter account, @AIBInternetBank.

Ulster Bank already offers smartphone apps for online banking, while Bank of Ireland has a banking app for Nokia’s Ovi platform.

A statement from the bank said its mobile site and smartphone apps had been developed in-house.
