CIBC’s banking app just got a major update for the iPhone.
Now at version 7.0, the most notable change is the app’s new user interface. It’s definitely a noticeable and welcome change; previous versions of the app overemphasized CIBC’s branding, often to the determinant of the overall user experience. On the app’s iTunes store page, CIBC says it tailored the new design for the iPhone 6 and above, so CIBC customers with newer iPhones have particular reason to look forward to this update.
On the feature front, the most useful addition here is Touch ID support. Anyone that has used one of the other banking apps that supports Touch ID will know how much this small feature improves the usability of the app in question.
In addition, overall navigation has been improved so that user can more easily access details on any outstanding mortgages, mutual funds and loans. Setting up recurring bill payments and transfers, as well as managing INTERAC transfers is likewise easier.
