Visiting your physical bank branch can be quite bothersome. You have to wait for a long time, you have to go during your work hours, you always got an old lady trying to jump the queue, and your visit is never for anything positive. That's why online banking has been such a relief for many of us. But not only for clients, bank workers are probably happy with this situation as well. Now, you can carry out the majority of your transactions straight from your computer or from a simple mobile application. But as always, Germans are smarter than the rest of the world and have released a tool that brings together all their savings banks: Sparkasse - Your mobile branch arrives on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to make life even easier.
The official mobile Sparkasse banking app in Germany.
One for all...
If you've got one or several German bank accounts, this app is exactly what you need. If your branch is in Berlin, Hannover or Heilbronn, and you live outside of Germany, this tool is also what you need. By means of Sparkasse, you can input all your accounts at different banks and manage them from a single application. Some of the savings banks available are:
- Stade-Altes Land.
- Altmark West.
- And loads more with names you wouldn't dare to pronounce.
Keep a registry of your finance for whenever you need it.
You can make standalone payments or schedule regular payments, as well as make SEPA transfers. Send and receive money by means of Kwitt, provided that your bank offers this service. It also includes debit functions and graphics to analyze your personal finances, as well as a locator to find your nearest ATM cash machine. Check the latest stock market figures and your shares, block cards, check the opening hours of your office and make an appointment at your branch.
