    Good. That app was an absolute fail.

      Slightly shocked it took this long…

      Of course it was. It was a typical effort from Rogers. They haven’t updated the device list in over a year. I tried to be a suretap user, but they never added my phone to the list of supported devices.

      I can’t wait for Samsung Pay to arrive later this year. I’d prefer to use Android pay, but Google seems to be in no rush to bring that to Canada.

      Meanwhile, I bank with BMO, who’s idea of mobile payments is an NFC sticker that they want me to stick to my phone. That’s not happening.

      I have been using RBC Wallet for a couple years now. I have had no issues with it. You’re right, Android Pay in Canada definitely isn’t a priority for Google.

      Considering the hassle that seemed to go into getting Apple Pay up here I’m not surprised Google isn’t particularly interested.

      Well the Tokenization interac needed to develop can be pretty well copy pasted for Android pay. And I believe Android pay does not charge a fee to banks like apple does. So apple got the banks to all build the tech now if Google could sign a contract with the banks it would be little further work to bring Android pay online.

      I was just in a conversation with friends this weekend about this and someone made a comment that RBC has one of the best mobile apps in the market compared to BMO, etc.

    • Maestro Karajan

      RBC’s app is garbage. The best are TD, CIBC and PC Financial.

    • Captain Henry Morgan

      I haven’t seen a TD app yet. RBC just updated its app lately. You should look into it. I mean it serves my purpose. They’ll just have to fix the Direct Investing part..cause it looks so crappy.

      CIBC didn’t even support my last two phones which forced me to use Suretap which is obviously trash so you are wrong. I don’t bank at TD or PC so I can’t speak to them.

    • Maestro Karajan

      Then your phones are shjt. Not the app

    • neo905

      Seriously dude? They were both $700 carrier phones that RBC supported so that makes the CIBC app shjt.

    • Maestro Karajan

      Yeah I’m serious. I tried the RBC app and had nothing but problems. Maybe it’s improved some but not when I used it.

    • neo905

      Well, I have had two completely different phones and OEM’s using this app with zero issues and your phone has nothing but issues. Perhaps you have a shjt phone then. (-: You should try if again though. It has changed a lot the past 3 months.

      CIBC’s app is garbage. Bare-bone app, just like their bank services.

    • Maestro Karajan

      Yeah that’s why CIBC got top honours for its banking app just this past year. lol.
      And what bare bones are you talking about? There is nothing RBC offers that isn’t offered by CIBC or others. You’re just talking shjt

    • It’s Me

      If you have the choice between Samsung pay and android pay, seems like Samsung pay is the better option. More secure and likely less intrusive.

    • Maestro Karajan

      BMO is a shjt bank. Always was. Always will be.

  • Zaptor99

    It’s installed as a system app on my Telus Note 4, they better release an update to remove it.

    • Jean Racine

      Its right! But they wont remove it…. Can can desactive it at least.

  • neo905

    What article?

    • Minh

      Ah, i put a link in but they removed it. http:// montrealgazette. com/storyline/waiting-for-android-pay-to-hit-canada-get-in-line-but-hey-u-k-good-for-you

  • Jean Racine

    This app was so bad…. Im relived its gone. But i have to admit that they gave me 200$ to just register the app on both my phones and it was easy money.
