PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Citizens Bank’s mobile banking apps for iPhone® and Android™ have earned Javelin Strategy & Research’s 2013 Highest Mobile Banking Smartphone Ratings Award for 2013, following its review of customer ratings in the Apple App Store and in Google Play. Citizens Bank’s average customer rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars for both iPhone and Android tied with the highest in the industry as reported by Javelin this week. In 2012, Javelin recognized Citizens Bank’s mobile apps as “best integrated apps” in the industry.
In recognizing Citizens, Javelin cited Citizens Bank’s “extremely satisfying experience” for its mobile banking customers and highlighted the improvements the bank made to its iPhone app that resulted in an increase in customer satisfaction ratings from a year ago.
“We are very excited once again to receive this recognition, especially since it is based on the positive feedback of our customers,” said Brad Conner, Vice Chairman for Consumer Banking for RBS Citizens Financial Group. “As we continue to invest in new functionality for Mobile Banking, we are maintaining our focus on ease of use and on providing customers with the on-the-go features to help them bank better.”
Javelin Strategy & Research’s 2013 Mobile Banking Financial Institution Scorecard benchmarks the mobile banking service offerings of the 25 largest U.S. banks and credit unions by deposit. In addition to ranking mobile apps across the industry in its research, Javelin’s report noted the “exuberant growth” in mobile banking which was accessed by 45 percent of consumers in the past 90 days, compared to 26 percent in 2012.
