Barclays recently updated its Windows phone app, adding full support for the Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update.

While the institution has an amazing banking app for Windows Phone, many users who run the newest version of Windows 10 Mobile reported all kind of issues with it, the most severe of which caused their phones to crash when they entered their PIN code.

Barclays Mobile Banking app version 12.0.18

The changelog for version 12.0.18 contains the following: “The issues with the latest Microsoft Windows Mobile Creators Update have now been resolved.”

As you can see, this update doesn’t bring any new features but it does address a false jailbreak-related message:

You can now use it in the Creator’s Update without it telling you that your device is jailbroken

Barclays Mobile Banking app issues

Unfortunately, some users still report issues, like the application suddenly closing after they log in. On the other hand, other users say that all the known issues that were affecting the app are now gone.

However, there are some users who reported that re-installing the app resolved the issue and so did resetting the app. If you choose to do this, you may need your PIN entry device or an ATM for completing the setup in both these cases.

The bank hasn’t yet commented on these latest issues that were reported by these few users, but will probably roll out another update in the near future that will take care of these as well — or at least, we hope so.

Considering the fact that other banks have begun to discontinue their Windows phone apps, Barclays’ support is definitely appreciated.
