TD Canada Trust iPhone App Released!

When CIBC released their official iPhone app, many customers rejoiced. They were able to pay bills and transfer funds right on their iPhones. CIBC has reported their iPhone app has been downloaded over 100,000 times, which is very impressive. People have been calling for RBC and TD to follow suit. It looks like TD has listened, because their iPhone app has officially hit the App Store as of tonight.

TD Canada Trust iPhone App: Check Your Balance, Pay Bills, And More

Here’s the official description of the TD iPhone app:

I’m not a TD member so I wasn’t able to login and test this out. However, it’s clear that you will be able to check your account balances, transfer funds between accounts and pay bills. It says you can even place trades from your TD Waterhouse account. Maybe it’s time to buy some more Apple stock?

If you’re a TD member, click here to download the TD Canada Trust iPhone app. Let us know in the comments how you like it!

Thanks to Robert for for the heads up on this!

    Oh Curses! I was hoping that TD would launch an APP – and I'm still on OS 2.x? Darn it. Just another thing I'll have to wait for till I get my new iPhone – I really wanted to try this one out.
    Whoever does end up testing this out, I'm curious to know if it lets you do Interac Email Money Transfers in addition to regular account-account and bill payment transfers – because that would be SUPER Convenient.

    You serious? Just update to 3.1.3 and you're golden! ;)

  • rorypiper

    Gah!! Finally!!

  • chantellejoy

    But I'm soooo… laaazzzyyy…
    This is the reason I havn't written anything for iPhoneAppGirl.com in a year – I havn't even upgraded to OS 3, now they're already at OS4! (I'm horribly afraid of re-locking my iPhone).
    I'm terrible at being a cutting-edge iPhone savvy girl.. just terrible…

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca Gary

    Haha…the first gen remains unlocked as the basebands have remained the
    same. So you're good to update and JB/Unlock with a blackra1n or pwnagetool!
    :)

    It would be nice to copy/paste finally… ;)

    The app is really slow and doesn't display the available balance for credit cards. Convenient to check your chequing/savings/line of credit and pay bills/transfer funds, but utterly useless for credit cards unless you care about your balance from two business days ago.

    Just looked for such an app yesterday to no avail! Thanks for posting this cuz I check your daily.

    Downloaded the app and browsed through it and it is quite nice. Much better than having to Zoom in and slide around to see all the info. Not sure how similar or not it is to the CIBC app, but it made my banking this morning much easier!

    I agree about the credit card part, obviously there is room for improvement, but it tackles the major things I require.

    I've been doing online banking with TD using Safari pretty much since I got my phone, but have been waiting for this app since CIBC announced theirs. Minimum requirements are 3.0, not 3.1.3

    The app is pretty good, with quick login and and it will remember your card number, not your password for obvious reasons.

    A very nice surprise was to also have access to TD Waterhouse Investment Accounts and TD Credit Cards, although available balance is not available with Credit Cards.

    A menu button allows you to Pay Bills or Transfer money, but options such as email Interac money transfer are missing; maybe we will see those in a later update.

    The location finder is good, you can allow it to use your current position to find the closest branch or ATM, although it doesn't tell you if it's a branch, or just an ATM. If you click on one of the search results, it will provide you with a map, and the hours of operation (which I'm assuming are only for branches) and a phone number. The phone number can NOT be direct dialed from the app or even copy/pasted :( NOTE: if you want directions, it will take you out of the app, and into google Maps.

    A very useful app, which has probably found a permanent home on my phone :)

    I've had a chance to play with the app and it's decent. Two features I wish they had included were “transfer money via e-mail” and “view bills”.

    I have the option to pay my bills, but I wish I could view them before forking out the money.

  • Jeff S

    i don't know, do you know for sure it is TD?

    There is nothing on their website indicating that they have created an app. I don't know but you would think you would hear somerthing.

  • Adam King

    I had the same concern as I didn't see anything when I went to the main TD website as well. Then I went to the td website on the iPhone and it _does_ have a description of the new app in the middle of the td web page. So I've downloaded it and trying it out.

  • zak2010

    Usability could be a little better. The amount of shading on line items is too much. Too much eye candy.

    Tighten up the spacing a bit so we can see more items per screen. People want financial apps for a surgical strike banking session – give me the stuff I need immediately not a couple screens down. We don't need huge “call” buttons. A small button with a phone icon would do the same thing and leave more space for other stuff. Should support landscape as well as portrait orientation.

    A good first effort. Version 2 will be better.

  • jabohn

    I wish PC Financial would get on this bandwagon too!

  • Dave

    Nice App. I have both CIBC and TD, the CIBC one feels a bit snappier, with better navigation on different banking options. the TD app feels plain and simple, defintely need some polish up here. But I like the locator offered by TD better, they list all the near by locations right in the app other than directing you to the Safari to find your banks.

  • hub2

    It's legit. Here's the TD page talking about it:

    Links to a Flash-based demo and of course the app store.

    Any news on if BMO will come out with an app to do banking with? I already have their ATM locator app but was looking to do actual banking.

    Hey Charles, this might sound odd but I work at TD and even the tellers can't see your live visa balance for some reason. There's always a 2 day lag. Even on the Desktop version of EasyWeb it advises you that your balance will reflect in 2 days after making a transfer to it. Must be something with visa and information sharing restrictions… But I'm only guessing.

  • desi

    Have been waiting for this app for ages….it majorly needs to be alittle more snazzer like the CIBC app…but for now it's good…and it works well.

    Kudos TD!….i am happy!

  • Barbara

    Just tried out the TDCanadaTrust app and it allowed me to transfer funds between accounts quickly. I also used it to pay bills and that too went without a problem.

  • Marco

    I bank w/ TD and have a CIBC creditcard so it's nice to have both these apps now. One noticeable difference in security between the TD app and the CIBC app is that while they both offer to “remember” the account/card number; the CIBC app remembers it with encryption without revealing the full account number profile using asterisks. The TD app, however, displays your account/card number in all its glory.

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca Gary

    Okay that is pretty bad. I hope people have passcodes on their iPhones with
    'erase content' after 10 failed attempts!
