Mashreq, the UAE financial institution, has upgraded the mobile banking app Mashreq Snapp. Snapp v4 can now be accessed using the secure fingerprint login option for iPhone, and can also now sync with the Apple Watch. A new layout is designed for ease of use.
Aref Al Ramli, Head of Electronic Business & Innovation, Mashreq, said: “We took a bold step in animating the application which will provide best in class user experience. Snapp has never been just a standard banking app; the fingerprint access and sync with the Apple Watch are proof of Mashreq’s ability to break boundaries and deliver the best of today’s mobile world to customers. We understand that time is precious and convenience is what everyone seeks, therefore, we have updated our app to offer our customers the most innovated service solutions that can be integrated and accessed with just one touch.”

The authentication process by fingerprint enhances security and makes the login process easier and faster, Mashreq notes, while the sync function for the Apple Watch allows customers to get the latest updates on their account at a glance. Information that can appear on the smartwatch includes Mashreq Card offers, Salaam rewards, locations of the nearest Mashreq branches or ATMs and the latest Mashreq news.

“The fourth and newest version of Snapp boosts a stylish new appearance as well. Brighter, more contrasted colours will help users monitor their finances easily and accurately across accounts, as information becomes more visible to the user,” Al Ramli added.
