I am Amber, a UX designer at Starling. Recently I’ve been working on the “Pay” section of our app and today I’m excited to share this with you!
Based on feedback from internal testing and here on the Starling Community, we’ve added an easy way to transfer money to any other accounts that you have with Starling, you can find this at the top of the “Payees” tab. We’ve also given our request payments feature, Settle Up, more prominence by moving it up from the bottom of the screen.
We have replaced the grid of all payees with a list of your recently paid payees which acts a bit more like a call log - showing you the payment details at a glance. From here, you can initiate a new payment too.
To initiate a payment with somebody in your payees that you’ve not paid recently, just scroll a little further to see an alphabetical list of all your payees.
We’ve also simplified the process of adding a payee by moving all the data entry fields from 6 separate screens to 1 scrollable screen. If we need more details, for example International Payees, then the list will expand to include the extra information that we need to capture.
I hope you like the new look. This will be rolling out shortly on Android, with iOS to follow.
I’d love to hear your Feedback!
