Mobile banking is a form of banking that allow financial institution (e.g bank) customers to perform transactions via mobile application or ussd code. Gtb mobile banking can be via gtbank mobile app or gtbank 737.
One of my previous article extensively covered all you need to know about gtb 737 simple banking.
This article on the other hand will throw more light on guaranty trust bank mobile banking apps.
There are currently two (2) gtbank mobile app on play store and iOS. The old mobile app and Gtworld which is the new and better app.
Although there is another app on play store named bank 737, but i won’t be talking about it because in my opinion it contradict the primary objective of gt 737 code.
You don’t agree? Okay let me explain myself. The main reason bank ussd codes were introduced was to take banking to customers without access to internet enabled phones. And bank 737 app contradict that.
Gtbank mobile banking app can be use to perform financial transactions 24 hours everyday. It is faster, easier, secure and user friendly.
Gtbank Mobile App
Why gtbank decide to leave both apps on Android and iOS store is still a mystery to me.
I mean they can just do what access bank did. Which was rebuilding the old app to give better user experience, introduce more features and made it more secure.
Gtworld is no doubt a better mobile app compare to the old one but they didn’t need to rename it and when they did, they could have just removed the old one from play store.
At first, i thought because gtworld support biometric sign in, it won’t work on older Android phones without fingerprint scanner.
But to my surprise, i installed it on my xiaomi redmi note 2 (early 2017) and it worked. Though i love the app better while using it on redmi note 4.
