    Prefer desktop access myself using a decent sized monitor. Cannot be bothered with apps. No interest at peering at a tiny screen. 
    Me to. I'm off abroad for a few days next week, with my decktop PC, keyboard, mouse & widescreen monitor. 

    I definitely shan't be lugging a great big mobile 'phone around with me...

    Most banks are as much as much, but some offer a few perks that many on here like to take advantage of. 
    It's largely down to the app these days, that's certainly been the reason for my last two bank switches. 
    Don't think there's any banking app that's made me go wow or arghh that I'd want to ditch & switch. They're all still largely much of muchness really in that I can perform basic functions of transferring money. Some I think are more user friendly than others but nothing that would be a deal breaker that I couldn't live with.

    It depends what you want I suppose. Starling and Monzo have spaces and pots which I think are a game changer in terms of budgeting and I couldn't use a bank that doesn't have those features in the app. Nationwide's app is so unbelievably archaic that I.womder why they even bother having one. All the others I've tried fall into an ok middle ground.

    Actually that's a good point. I do use Zopa & virgin for the pots, but it's more for savings. For general expenses I just use different accounts as you get the double benefit of extra perks (santander cashback on bills as an example)
