boa-windowsphoneIt was not too long ago that we brought you word that Chase Bank would no longer support the Windows Phone mobile operating system, and when you see one of the market leaders make a move, what will the rest of the industry do? Bank of America, the second largest bank in the U.S., has decided to follow in Chase Bank’s footsteps – having made an announcement that they, too, will no longer support the Windows Phone platform.

If one were to head to the Windows Phone Store listing for its app, Bank of America (BoA) has included this updated description that carries with it an urgent notice: “In early March 2015, we’ll no longer support this app for this device. We’re sorry for the inconvenience. You can access mobile banking with us through your browser. Just go to www.bankofamerica.com.”

Apart from that, the listing for the Windows 8.1 version of the app too, has received such similar treatment, delivering the same kind of information – which goes to show that Windows 8.1 users will have to make do without the BoA app in due time. I suppose this would further widen the app gap between the two mobile platforms, but with Windows 10 on the horizon, do you think the banks will change their minds?
