You asked and we listened. With the release of Ally Mobile Banking for Windows Phone 8, now even more customers will be able to access and manage their money on-the-go using our award-winning mobile software.

It's Here: Ally Mobile Banking for Windows® 8

With Windows OS becoming the world’s third most used smartphone operating system, we knew it was important to design an Ally Mobile Banking app exclusively for Windows Phone 8 users.

“The functionality of our mobile banking app aligns with our philosophy of offering consumer-friendly products and services to make the banking experience better and simpler for our customers,” said Diane Morais, Ally Bank deposits and line of business integration executive.

Ally’s Mobile Banking app, previously available for iPhone® and Android™, took home Forrester’s 2013 “Outside In” Award in the Customer Experience Design category for its innovative and customer-friendly design.

“Our Windows app is yet another example that demonstrates Ally’s customer-driven design process to deliver differentiated and convenient solutions across all platforms,” said Morais.

Like our other Mobile Banking apps, our Windows Phone 8 app lets customers deposit checks, search transactions and transfer funds between Ally and non-Ally bank accounts.

What excites you most about Ally’s Windows Phone 8 launch? On which smartphone do you use Ally’s Mobile Banking app?

    The app is awesome, but it’s actually for “Windows Phone 8″ not “Windows 8″

    1 ISSUE: using the security code that is sent via SMS did not work on the first 2 tries….had to use the checkmark at the bottom of the numeric keyboard instead of the actual submit button on the page

    This app looks nice and designed in the Windows metro style. I’d really like to see the android app redesigned to be like this, fitting to Android design standards and not what looks like some iPhone port.

    Thankyou for supporting the platform! Just in time for me to need a new checking account. Looks and functions smoothly and beautiful, looks like a WP app should not just a web page inside an app.

    I have several other online and traditional accounts and won’t move any money over to Ally until there is a mobile app for the IPhone. Is there an approximate time for its rollout? Thank you.

    Please update your android app. Why does the most widely adopted smartphone platform have the worst app? It’s slow, ugly, not scaled to my phone correctly, and straight copy pasted from the iphone. Check deposit fails on the first attempt, regardless of how good the pictures are… really annoying bug.

    I love ally and still recommend it to my friends, but this app is how a large portion of your users interface with your bank. It’s embarrassing, you could hire a team of college interns to do a better job.

    This is one of the major reasons I went to Ally. I love my Windows Phone and am now in love with Ally! Thanks.

    I used another large bank who chose to end support for Windows Phone. A good number of people who commented on it and noted Ally’s app is well designed, and Ally’s customer service rocks by comparison to that bank as well. It’s why I recently switched and loving it!

    I hope Ally works on a Windows 10 Universal App to get the same experience on my tablet as my phone in the near future. (Windows 10 is now scheduled for release over the summer btw).

    Again, thank you for having not only a WP app, but one of the absolute BEST banking apps on WP. Ally in a short time has proven that not all banks see customers as insignificant account holders, but as real people they care about. It’s something I didn’t think was possible!
