Monzo wins best bank app poll – making it the UKs #1 bank for features and usability

Monzo saw a victory over all other banks in a recent poll that saw them score a massive 78% for their features and usability score on their app, which for us isn’t a surprise (we’re investors and longtime Monzo lovers/users).

“55,000 people open a Monzo account every week”

The poll asked members who access their current accounts via an app to rate their bank based on the following criteria:

  • Features: Does it have more than just basic transactions, e.g., budgeting and spending categories?
  • Usability: How easy is it to use? Can you do everything you want via the app?

The June 2019 poll that was completed by 5,052 members of the website Moneysavingexpert put Monzo ahead of all the major banks including Barclays (57%), Lloyds (49%), Natwest (47%) and FirstDirect (28%)

A Monzo spokesperson said:

“Monzo wants to make banking easier for everyone, so we’re delighted that our customers have chosen us as their top banking app for features and great usability.”

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
