    Just wondering, is it worth getting the Halifax banking app? My mum has it on her iPhone but I'm not sure just how Metro and functional it is.

    Depends what you want to use it for. If it's to find a branch/ATM it's quite nice and follows the Metro design. If you want to use it for online banking (which you probably do) it's quicker to use the browser. The app just loads their mobile site and it's painfully slow. I'm pretty sure all their apps are like that across different OSs.

    Currently very bored so decided to give the app a go, from first glance it looks pretty clean and is quite smooth, screenshots below. :), I might try out the other banking apps and will post those up later if I do.

    Search options via magnifying glass

    Filter options - location services must be turned to enable this option

    Also on the atm / branch finder screen is the option to see the results in a list, whilst on this screen you choose to view the results in map view as well which is pretty handy

    List View - (location services must be enabled for this)

    Map view (bing maps) - you can also move around and zoom.

    The locations of the atm / branches tapped in the atm/branchfinder screen save here.
    4th screen via pan / sliding right

    Last and final screen via pan / sliding right - or 2nd scree if you pan / slide left after loading the app therefore effectively is it a full panorama app.
