I was excited to read the recent blog post about the imminent rollout of the current account to all existing prepaid customers. I’m really keen that this happens, but also slightly apprehensive that if the functionality of the current account app doesn’t achieve parity with that of the prepaid app before rollout, many customers could perceive the move to be a step backwards for them.
Is there a list somewhere of functionality to be delivered before this happens? For example, I’m travelling abroad right now, and the inability to enable magstripe transactions has meant I’ve had to repeatedly switch to using my prepaid card. I feel enabling Touch ID would also be essential, and I imagine other users would see other features as essential for the current account rollout MVP.
Grateful for your input.
