This news should not come as a surprise to many users with
another bank Deutsche Postbank bidding farewell to Microsoft’s
Windows platform. The Postbank has decided to bid farewell to
its official application on Windows 10 Mobile.
The company has removed the listing of its banking app from the
Microsoft Store and user with the banking app installed on
their Windows 10 Mobile will no longer be able to use it.
It’s quite surprising for Postbank users since there has been
no prior intimation from the bank or its officials in regards
to the company’s decision to discontinue its mobile banking
The Postbank users are being redirected to the mobile website
of the bank, and you’ll be able to use the services on your web
This has not been the first case with many a major banks having
already withdrawn its support for the Windows 10 platform.
The Windows 10 Mobile can are however allowed to
browse and operate the Postbank services in Microsoft
This decision doesn’t come as a surprise since previously also
there have been many major companies and banks who have pulled
the plug on their official Windows application due to the less
percentage of users on the platform and the company itself
putting Windows 10 Mobile on maintenance mode.
Microsoft had already confirmed that its Mobile version of
Windows 10 is currently in maintenance mode and will continue
to receive new security updates until late-2019 when the
company officially plans to pull the plug completely.
The Windows 10 Mobile Deutsche Postbank users are advised to
continue using the company’s mobile version of the bank’s site
or move to either iOS or Android to enjoy the banking services.
Not only the developers but Microsoft itself is focusing on
Android and iOS. The company is, however, working on Andromeda
and if everything goes as per the schedule, the new platform
called Windows Core OS and mobile-type device codenamed
Andromeda will be announced later this year at a Surface event.
Microsoft is also working on Progressive Web Apps and it seems
to be attracting some well-known companies.
