@MartinPerry That might be one of the surprises
Thank you @sarah.guha - a very reassuring and informative blog post.
Was a bit worried when I’d almost got to the bottom and not seen any mention of joint accounts, so was relieved to see that near the end.
I was surprised payments from goals wasn’t mentioned, but as @Cragmireuk said, hopefully will be a surprise feature
Thanks @sarah.guha, just the right tone as well. Plenty of intentions and updates without giving too much away!
Good to get an update - thanks @sarah.guha. I’m pleased that Joint accounts, Young Persons accounts and Round Ups are mentioned. These are essential. I assume that fixing known problems is a given, which is why they are not mentioned. Examples, Category and Merchant spendings don’t tally; ATM withdrawals are categorised as Payments, rather than Cash; Pulse and statements balances differ.
Enhancing our app login experience
Finally! It’s really put me off using you at all how slow you’ve been on this (nearly a year). Is there any timeline for when to expect - you last mentioned ‘early 2018’ and its been a problem for ages. Also will this just be login updates? I know you mentioned before you were looking at or in app enhancements, will touch/face id be used as password replacement around the app or is this not part of this?
A new menu and the ability to add a profile photo to your account
Will that need a password?
A little extra…
Can you make sure this doesn’t abuse your contacts like monzo - blocking the screen if you don’t give access?
Banking with your loved ones
@sarah.guha So i could have a separate business account, and also separate joint account but no second account?
Nice, did I miss a section on pulse updates, I remember a while back when a suggestion was made view not just daily but weekly and monthly spend one of your guys showed us a few screen shots of what this may look like, is that further down the pipeline?
Hopefully not as a password REPLACEMENT but just an additional/alternative option/choice.
I think that spread payment option (if the rate is competitive) is a very cool innavotive idea.
I agree that it sounds like a very interesting service. I am a little surprised though given that Starling have previously said they aren’t interested in offering credit cards, loans, even savings accounts - just the best current account available.
I’m not complaining at all - things like this set Starling apart from the competition.
Totally agree, that was a surprise to see. Great idea!
We’re not wasting any time… International Payments are now live on iOS!
Glad you enjoyed our roadmap, but please don’t try to eat it.
An iPad/tablet app is not currently on our list, but I believe receiving currencies other than GBP and EUR is something we’re looking in to. Perhaps @kjersti.larsen could provide an update.
Absolutely - the blog is all about new features as opposed to bug fixes. Hopefully we’ll squash those bugs in good time!
Possibly the only roadmap in history that’ll need this warning.
Thanks @lozfromcorby - I can certainly see it being handy for those unexpected surprises in life, or to help spread the cost of moving home for generation rent (like me)!
Android update next with new login screen?
