The new Bill Pay section is poorly designed trash that has ruined the app experience. Not only is it ugly, it does a poor job of visually integrating with the rest of the app. Clunky and unintuitive, to now make an online payment you must sift through multiple screens, making multiple clicks—all of which is very confusing to the consumer. You now also have to manually assign a “pay by” date to complete the process which is terribly annoying. (The default should be set similar to the pre-updated version that automatically sets the earliest possible date for you. But, still allow a user to manually set their own “pay by” date if needed.) Overall, the former Bill Pay was MUCH easier to utilize and MUCH nicer to look at. To add to the problems, we no longer have the ability to delete old “Pay To” accounts from within the app the way we could previously. Another oversight. BOA has definitely taken steps backwards with this update. If I had to guess, budget cuts forced BOA to begin implementing new app updates via internal junior-level design team, rather than outsourcing to a professional UI/UX firm. As a result, this update has a “beta” feel displaying poor form, function and usability. Really embarrassing for a big bank.
I am not sure why the notification button needs to be out on its own on the upper left side of the screen. Every time when the app reacts slowly (which happens a lot actually), I will click the exit screen multiple times. And when the app actually reacts, it always takes me to the notification screen, which will first ask me if I want to customize or quick setup. Once I selected either, a notification window will pops out to ask if I want to change my iPhone notification setting before I can finally get to the screen to exit. The most ridiculous thing is that the every time I click, it will spin forever till it reaches the next stage. The whole process will take me forever and I cannot exit till I get to the notification screen. I have already set up my notification setting when I first opened online banking. I am not sure why BoA is so obsessed with notifications that it has to be a standalone button on the main page and I have to reset so many times. It’s completely useless and if I really need to change, it should be done within setting, not its own button. I manage bank accounts for my entire family and have multiple bank/brokerage apps. Nothing frustrates me more than this. That space on the app should be reserved for something far more important than notification setting and should be something easy to get out if you accidentally click on it, given that’s where you exit the page before.
I tried to set up auto pay to automatically pay the whole balance every month. No can do. The app automatically schedules the minimum payment every month. No way to change on the app. No help - so far - from customer service. Sad. Here is an update: I got a response from a member of the tech team. It said that the developer needed more information on the type of account. Fair enough. But the response took several days and I was unable to respond to the feedback. Clicking the response link went to a leave feedback general page so the whole thread would have been lost. In the meantime I called the general customer service number. They did not have the information so they referred me to a technical support line which was closed for the evening. I called tech support. They told me what I was trying to do (pay in full every month—less interest fees to the bank) could only be done on the desktop app, not the mobile app. So it is a deficiency in the mobile app. To add insult to injury making this change is not effective immediately or even in a few days but not until the next billing cycle over a month away. Poor technology choices all around. Desktop and mobile apps both. My rating of 2 stars has been confirmed several times over.
This is the glitchiest app I use and it’s frustrating that a mammoth of a financial institution cannot invest in a more robust mobile application. Almost every time I try to use mobile deposit, it hangs up. Usually this happens during the photo step. Often though, I get all the way to the end and try to finish the deposit and I get a pop up message that it failed and to try again later. Sometimes it fails all day and I have to wait until a day or two later. I turn off my phone and try refreshing it that way. I look for updates. Nothing will correct it. So I’m sitting on checks that I can’t deposit unless I go to a branch and that sort of defeats the purpose of a mobile app. Admittedly, I’ve considered switching banks because it’s happening more often now than it did a year or two ago, but I don’t have time to read reviews to see if any other banks have better technology. This is among the most frustrating apps I have. I get anxiety every time I need to deposit because I almost can predict that it’s going to take me all day to try dozens of attempts. It’s like I have to set aside a good time to go to work at it. My brother and daughter use the same bank/app and we recently shared our frustrations so I know it’s not my phone. (Sigh)
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Bring back the ability to sign in with fingerprint! I had to upgrade my iPhone at the end of last year. I was able to sign in using my fingerprint like I did with my iPhone 5, but that soon changed. I’m assuming there was a software update for my phone because at some time in Jan 2018, I was no longer able to sign in. I had a heck of a time with it and tried getting help through customer service (phone call) AND visiting a local branch to try to figure out how to get the option to open the app with my fingerprint, again. The branch people were just as frustrated as I was and said that you all were probably aware of the problem and working on it. We’re almost 9 months later and still no fix in sight. Frustration #2: I had to come up with a new password and it has so many stipulations on what it can or cannot be that I ended up choosing one that Apple produced for me. Do you know how frustrating it is to have to recall this new, convoluted password EVERY DANG TIME I need to access my account from the app?!?!?! With all said, I like the ease of use of the app once I’m in it. But I rarely use it any more. At least I’m now able to see my balances with a tap, but it sure is perplexing why you allow that but I cannot make a deposit without having to sign in?!?!?? Bizarre....
