CIBC Launches Mobile Banking App For iPhone

CIBC has launched a mobile banking application where users can access their account, pay bills, find branches, and more.

CIBC Mobile Banking by CIBC

Customers of CIBC will be happy to know that CIBC now has a rather fantastic app for iPhone/iPod Touch users. The only requirement is CIBC customers must have online banking enabled on their account (if you can see your account on CIBC.com, you’re set).

With the CIBC app, customers can check their balances across multiple accounts very easily and quickly. Using the same navigation screens, users can review transactions such as deposits, payments, and more.

The app also allows users to pay bills from the app, however the bills must be setup prior to using the app from the CIBC online banking website.

Lastly users can make account transfers such as moving funds and use the search function to locate bank branches and ABM’s. The search function does not use Google Maps but instead opens up a mobile search page in Safari.

The CIBC Mobile Banking app supports both English and French languages. Also note that President’s Choice Financial banking customers are not supported, even though the PC banking services are provided by CIBC.

The CIBC Mobile Banking app is available on the App Store for free.

    Hopefully this will give the other banks a reason to supply something similar.

  • Gus

    Yup, the Mobile Banking service is a suppliment to customers who already do online banking at their computers, it doesn't replace regular online banking but more of an extension to it. I've got my bills setup already and it's kinda cool that I can now pay bills or transfer cash on my phone since i tend to make last minute payments on the go…

  • Excellent! This was long overdue and frustrating knowing other banking institutions already had apps. My bills are set up so this is a real convenience.

  • Is there an app for Royal Bank

  • There is RBC Finder, which helps you find ATM locations only.

  • Not yet…I don't think.

  • Finally Canadian banks are getting with the times! I previously stated I will switch to which ever bank brings out an iPhone app, so I might have to start using my CIBC account more.

    Hopefully RBC sees this app and is already ready to one up them..

  • Jets

    Other institutions do not have apps that can help you pay bills via the IPhone, not yet.

  • Isabelle

    Red everywhere… it is painful to look at. Send back to the visal design team! must not use red as wall paint.

  • Vancouver Boy

    This is a pretty good little app. I actually like how it lists my credit card transactions better than online banking!

  • DjDATZ

    Nice! Does anyone know if this includes PC Financial as well?

    Now just an ING Direct app like this and I'm set! 😀

    Edit: Just tried it, it does NOT work with PC Financial accounts. Oh well, would have been nice. I guess PC Financial now have to get up off their asses and make an app like this. lol

  • Iphone app please

    Well this is not cool , President's Choice Financial accounts should also be supported or be able to leverage on the CIBC application for a PCF version.

    When will PC Financial have an app for the Iphone ??????

  • jr35

    PCF will have one when they pay for one themselves … they are owned by Loblaws and their financial banking division is operated by CIBC, so wait for someone to pony up there.

    Not sure why you'd try to login to a CIBC app with a PCF card, when was the last time you went to cibc.com and tried to sign in?

  • Guest

    Wow, umm… haha – iTunes says this app isn't even available in the Canada App Store!!!

  • Mike

    PC financial customer service told me that they'll create the iphone app when there is enough of a demand for it.

  • Dale

    ING has come out with an APP for the iPhone.

    If Presidents Choice doesn't get an iPhone app out soon, and hopefully for the Android as well, it is actually a reason to start looking around at the competition that is actually interested in making banking easier for its customers.

  • Dale

    So what does it take to get through to Pres Choice, that THERE IS A DEMAND FOR AN IPHONE AND ANDROID APP !!
    That is just a nice way for them to dodge the issue and do nothing.

    Iphone app please — You can send them an email rather than expecting them to read your mind. If enough people ask, they may get one made. Just a thought…

  • pcf78

    If you can go to a CIBC ABM with a PCF card and do all the banking a CIBC costumer can do, you have to ask the question, can we use the CIBC App to do our banking like the ABM. Unfortunately, the answer is no, but the question is still valid.

  • Gus Andersen

    Loblaws wants to control how their brand (PCF) is marketed and serviced thus they want complete control on their websites while the underlying service is provided using CIBC's infrastructure. If Loblaws is willing pay for an iPhone app (CIBC cannot act unanimously) then there will be one… I suggest you tell loblaws you want and iPhone app for PCF!

  • One’s coming. It should be here sometime in 2011. It’s freaking expensive to make a banking app apparently!

  • Tong_sharon

    Hopefully soon they will have an app for pc banking users.

  • SP

    I just contacted PC Financial to inquire about an app for us PC customers. I suggest everyone else do the same. The more they see that people want it, the more likely they will do something about it.

  • Seeing as how the PC Financial cards state right on the front “Card issued by CIBC”, it’s more than valid. That was my question as well.

  • Cool

    we should all submit a complaint to PC through their online feedback form and request for the iphone app for PC Financial. Maybe if enough of us are complaining, they will create one.

  • Protege5turbo

    When is the android app coming out

  • Mumbl

    Any news on the App for Android

  • Javajoel08

    Let’s go already, release a app for pc banking

  • RBC’r

    Yea there is! And it’s good one too. Search RBC in app store

  • Rm1991

    I used to check my preschoice banking info on a Dell Axim – doesn’t work anymore because the page just doesn’t allow me to enter passwords anymore – also starbucks wifi doesn’t work for me anymore either – same display problems.

    I was going to buy an ipod touch partially for banking and internet at starbucks but I guess I’ll have to get a netbook instead. Why does technology limp along so much?

    The share of the market using ANDROID is huge and is growing rapidly. I’m going to switch my banking services to TD if CIBC does not put out an android version of their app soon.

  • Andriod User

    Both CIBC and BMO dont have ANDRIOD apps. Both are a must to have in order to keep lots of people happy and not switch banks.

  • J_andrusiak

    If they don’t release an Android app ASAP I am done with cibc!

  • Firedragon76

    PC Financial needs to have a banking App as well.

  • Timmmber4

    Come on pc let’s get with the times. How hard can it be. I know you don’t charge much for services and that’s why we use you. But make an app charge 2$ for it well all buy it and it will pay for itself!

  • Slandry77

    Strength in numbers! Android app will become available as more people inquire so contact CIBC asap to get the ball rolling. That is what the email stated when I inquired.

  • LT73

    PC Financial needs  a iPhone app!  It’s ridiculous that an ‘online’ bank cannot provide one.

  • Posterski

    Well you must know there is many androids and we need to do our banking also!!!! Get with the times! Dont want to wait any longer!!! Your bank has had plenty of time to accomplish this task. So make it your task at hand asap.

  • Wesrigby

    PC you need to get a mobile app or I will have to to a think about going to a bank where they try to make their customers happy, and more efficient, this is 2011…………………….Get with the times.

    I really cannot believe PC does not have an apP. Brutal and so frustrating I’m actually considering going to cibc

  • Wencer

    +1 for Android.
    +1 For PC Financial

  • Jonavision

    I came here on a search for PC financial iPhone app. NONE? Crazy. What will it take to get them to create an app?

  • Johnsl

    Helloooo PC!!!!!!! Why there is still no iPhone app banking???? We should all sign a petition for them to realize. Do they even care about their customers at all?? Everyone has the iPhone app except the PC bank

  • Rja1620

    Yes I have a PC card and I want online banking to support it. When is it coming out???

  • Timo

    I also have a Pc account and a master card, They are só backwards! They are ignorant and no service at all! I have paid the price for changing banks but will change back soon!

  • 7992

    where is the PC banking app??

  • Petra_Kalbrain

    Hmmm… I could easily live without a PCF banking app if the iPhone’s browser could remember my card number like my laptop can. It is getting really annoying having to pull out my bank card and type that long number in every time I want to check my accounts or transfer funds while I’m “on the fly.”

  • philyassa

    PC Fincancial is by far the most attractive bank in Canada for it’s rates.. However, not having an app for smartphones/tablets is an absolute BIG FAIL!!

  • Yzhao60

    it is not fair not to support pc financial.

  • Yzhao60

    no discrimination against pc financial customers !

  • Shannonlabour

    Get a pc app Please!

  • Mdefosse

    What do you expect for free

  • Jessica

    Come ON.

    I’m sure the Big Bosses see PC as the budget facet, and thus aren’t putting the money into app development.

    LOOK, charge me $2. Charge me $5!! We want the app, and you have a market for it, you can recoup the expense of app development SO easily!!! 🙂

  • K80realist

    hello yes i agree i have cibc and the app is amazing in the eantime i just opened up a pc account i have an iphone and i went to the login page and set as home page so i have a link on my phone like an app better than nothin it does save your bank card number as well

  • frustrated

    Not only do they need the PC app. It needs to be android friendly.
