Introducing the Funding Circle iPhone app
We’re excited to announce that from today, you’ll be able to download the Funding Circle App to use on your iPhone.
The app, free to download from the App store, will allow you to bid when you’re on the move, help you keep track of all of your bids and notify you when loan requests you’re interested in are coming to an end.
As well as this, there are some useful features like the auto login, which means you don’t have to login to your account every time you open the app on your phone. Safety is important to us which is why you can’t deposit or withdraw funds using the app, so if your phone was to get into the wrong hands, you can rest assured that your money is safe.
You may ask, why have we chosen Apple’s iOS over Android for our first app? The reason is simple: our usage data shows that visits from iOS devices, including iPhone and iPad, outweigh Android users significantly, specifically by 7 to 1 for the whole of October. That said, we do have a desire to launch an Android app, and the iPad App will be released shortly.
As this is the first version of the app, you may notice some features missing that you would expect to be in here. We will continue to add functionality with every release and we’d appreciate your input on what you think would be important to include in future releases.
The app is also intended for existing Funding Circle investors only, so if you haven’t yet created an account to lend to businesses, you can so do here.
The guide below shows you the key sections of the Funding Circle App. Don’t worry, it is really easy to use and and you’ll soon be making and tracking bids whenever and wherever you like.
