So I have been watching a number of films/TV shows etc where the bad guy gets a cool progress bar when they transfer cash over to another account.
I want this feature.
When I send my wife £3.99 for the latte I owe her it would be so cool to see the money transfer 0-100% progress bar style, maybe over say 20 seconds with a small risk of it being interrupted just to keep us all on the edge of our seats. It would go towards fulfilling my dream of being an international art thief.
Immediate shortlisting for post of the year.
It also needs to be non-linear.
0-50% - 1 second
50-80% - 5 seconds
80-100% - 15 seconds minimum
So long as it’s not measured in Apple seconds
If you watch thrillers, the transfers normally tick up, cent by cent, to add suspense. Rather than just ‘ Complete’
I think nationwide has similar. And Revolut gives you a progress page (and an annoying email everytime you send money).
Don’t think it’s necessary here in the UK as we have faster payments, but America doesn’t have the infrastructure to move them that fast (for the most part anyway)
It needs to have a dodgy calculation for the estimated time like the old windows dialog used to have.
An animation of a bank note (like the paper in the above) from one bank to another would be nice too
Someone’s been watching the iMessage progress bar.
Make it look proper old school:
With accurate error messages too.
What about we use all of the above graphics but sometimes there can be a hand that grabs the money mid air and it disappears?
Ahh a whole generation of kids who’ll never know the sweet, sweet sound of…
