Some users are upset at this update, noting in their iTunes review the ability to deposit cheques via the app, a feature that debuted in late 2013, has been removed. 

National Bank of Canada was named the country’s ‘Best Mobile Banking Service Provider’ back in 2013; the bank’s mobile app debuted in late 2011.

    Hi Gary,

    I’m on my iPhone and everytime I open an article on your website it loads, and after a few seconds it sends me directly to the app store, without me even clicking any link. It’s getting pretty annoying, as it has been a few weeks since this problem started.

  • Zzzz

    Your mobile website (iOS) is broken, are you going to fix that problem with it redirecting us always to the app store 🙁

  • Hi we’re trying to isolate this issue, it’s not planned. Can you email the forwarding URL if you can to gary AT the next time it happens? Thanks

    Some good news and some bad news.
    The good news is that via my iPhone on IOS 9 public beta 2, I see no redirect.
    The bad news is that the mobile website is skewed spacing wise. – not a complain as it is a beta but a heads up. NOTE: Although no redirect, something (no idea what) was loading in the badkground for at least a minute.

  • We are aware of the spacing issue and are trying to address this before the final release. Thanks
