Android Release 0.43.0


#1

A new Android release (0.43.0) is rolling out to the Play Store now, and will be available for you to download shortly.

What’s new?

  • You can now add your Starling card to Google Pay directly from the app (great news for new customers – start spending before your physical card arrives!).
  • Found that our customer chat has been timing out a bit recently? That’s sorted.
  • We’ve also added a button for your transaction feed so you can find it more easily.

Swipe for transactions removed!?

Just installed the latest Android version of the app and I can’t believe that the swipe up for the transaction list has been removed! Why would you do that??? Huge UI backward step IMHO :anguished: It also means the nice transition from Pulse to transaction list has gone.

I know I might sound like I’m making a mountain out of a molehill but I’m astonished!

Edit: the Pulse has also been moved down a bit so it looks weird. The little arrow you had previously was already a button that could be clicked - it was just the wrong way up. All you had to do was turn the arrow the other way around.

How do you get to transactions now then? Screenshot?


#4

There’s a button at the bottom right hand side.


#5

I need to see this.


#6

Agree with all of that @danmullen.
That’s a nasty green icon bottom right!


#7

Wow in-app provision has arrived in the latest android release. Another U.K. banking first. Superb work guys. :raised_hands:t2:


#8

Yuck! Bring it back! It was so easy to just swipe up instead of looking for a button to click on. This really is a backward UI experience.

The button bottom right?


#11

Round green button at bottom right. The white icons are Android system UI.


#12

Awful UI !


#13

@Harry @sarah.guha This is a horrible move, I’m totally baffled by the decision. Can anyone shed some light on what the reasoning is behind this?


#14

Right, I don’t like that button bottom right. The swiping up is something I love about Starling!


#15

Me too. I absolutely hate this UI change.


#16

Agree! Step backwards, fixing an issue that never existed. Bring back the swipe.


#17

I’m not really a fan of the swipe up. Even more so since the pulse only shows the days spending. If it showed month etc I’d be less inclined to not like it


#18

To be fair, they might of had huge amounts of customer contact on finding it difficult to access transactions, so the UI change might be due to that.


#19

IMO It should be a swipe left/right to change pulse periods, day, week, month… And swipe up for transactions.

Great to see the addition of in-app provisioning and the CS issues being addressed.

I’ve just removed my card from Google Pay, and added it again via in-app provisioning, just to try it. Flawless :+1:
