After a couple of false alarms about the release of the Bank of America Windows 10 app, we now have info that it has been pushed to summer 2016. As Bank of America originally announced, the app should have been released yesterday on March 28th, but the company told one user on Twitter that we’d have to wait a little bit more before the app is released to the Windows Store.
However, Bank of America did mention that the app is currently in a ‘limited internal rollout,’ and that the app will be released to users when it’s ready. We’re not exactly sure what that means, but the app is probably available to members of the development team only.
@aceoforder We’ve started a limited internal rollout of our Windows 10 Mobile app and are working to bring it to you this summer. ^kt

As for the app itself, Bank of America provided information about some of its features before. We know that it is will be a Universal app, meaning it will work on every PC, tablet, and mobile device powered by Windows 10. Users of the Bank of America Windows 10 app will be able to:
- “Pay bills
- Transfer money
- Deposit checks
- View balances and transactions on their checking, savings, and credit card accounts
- View mortgage, auto, and other loan balances
- Locate nearby financial centers and ATMs”
We hope that Bank of America will keep its promise and release its app this summer. Of course, when the company releases the app or if any announcements and changes are made in the meantime, we’ll make sure to let you know.
As we said before, the lack of banking apps in the Windows Store is evident, and we hope that the presence of Bank of America will encourage other banking systems and financial services to release their own UWP apps, as well.
