Simple Banking App Gets Support For Nexus Imprint, Adds Transfer Memos, And More

Banking apps are traditionally terrible and slow to adopt new features. That has never been the case with Simple, and the developers are reminding us of that with an update that (among other things) adds support for Nexus Imprint.

Simple Bank Updates Android App To Version 2.2 With A Few Material Touches And Other New Features

Simple is a bank from the future (or the past, I guess), one that lacks physical branches and expects you to handle all of your transactions over the web from a PC or mobile device. After quite a wait, the Portland-based company has pushed out an update to its Android app that comes with enough visual tweaks to make the experience look Lollipop-friendly.

The previous version—which was already clean and, dare I say, simple—looked like a KitKat holdover. With 2.2, the designers have slid the hamburger button from the edge of the screen and tossed a floating action button into the bottom right corner.

Rovio Stars Publishes Runner-Racer Sky Punks, A Mix Of Cutesy Hoverboards And In-App Purchases

What do you get when you combine Back to the Future-style hoverboards with a quasi-anime art style and runner mechanics? The answer is Sky Punks, the latest game from Rovio's publishing arm. No, it's not created by the Angry Birds folks (as the Play Store app description suggests) - the developer is Fathom Interactive, whose previous Android entries have been largely unremarkable. But with a big name in the mobile gaming world backing them up, they're hoping for a hit with this stylish and surprisingly varied runner.

At first glance Sky Punks looks achingly derivative. You move your chibi racer between three lanes to collect coins, jumping over or sliding under obstacles and shooting or blasting through them with occasional power-ups.

Simple 2.1 Brings Android Wear Support And The Option To Add Images To Transactions

Back in mid-August, Simple pushed out version 2.0 of its app, bringing with it a bold, yet simplistic new interface, as well as a handful of other new features. Now the company is pushing version 2.1 to the Play Store (as well as Appstore for iOS devices), which brings a couple more useful features to the table.

First off, Wear support. As of now, Simple will send push notifications to your Wear device, which includes both support messages and transaction notifications. Hooray for not having to pick up your phone when notifications come in.

Secondly, there's now an option to attach an image to transactions.

Simple App Gets A Major Redesign With Version 2.0

If you're a Simple customer, then you probably already know that the company has been making major changes to its service as of late (and if you don't, you should probably start paying more attention to your bank). While the majority of that has been behind-the-scenes, today's app update is a very forward-facing change. Simple v2.0 is now available for both iOS and Android, which brings a complete revamp of the app to both platforms.

Fortunately, it still works in much the same way as it did before, but just looks a lot better doing it. The whiter aesthetic is much sleeker and easier on the eyes.
