    I suppose it had to happen.

    I am not a massive user of apps, I have all the ones I want, but just got a text from the Royal Bank of Scotland that their app will cease to function in 60 days.

    Because it wasn't a UWP app, I probably used it less than I would have if I had the same app on my Surface, and I of course can still use the web page which is far clunkier than the app if all you want to do is a quick balance check etc.

    I will keep on using my 950XL until it dies or I can replace it with a small (Smaller than a Surface) pocketable PC that handles phone calls and texts, but even then it wont have an RBS app unless MS can persuade people to make a Windows app rather than using web pages.

    If it's any comfort, your bank app lasted a helluva lot longer than most. My Wells Fargo app died some time ago.

    Now for the swift kick in the balls - BlackBerry OS10 still has an app for Wells Fargo even if it is a web wrapper. It's more functional than the WP dedicated app ever was. Livin' la vida loca de Windows.

    My bank (a local institution) just got good iOS and Android apps a couple years ago. The apps had been around for awhile before that, but they weren't all that functional. A couple years ago we got serious upgrades.

    When I switched to Android in March 2015, my bank had a functional Android app. It had an iOS app as well, but I've never used an iPhone.
