The Monzo Borrowing Hub 👀

Exciting news! :tada:

Monzo seem to be compacting their “borrowing” suite into a, single, sensible location :monzo::money_mouth_face:

I’ve torn the app down and had a little bit of a poke around and I’m happy to share this little nugget for you all :blush:

The underlying code behind this screen can be viewed here: Monzo for Android - Teardowns & Deep Dives 👨‍💻


There’s no clickable button in the app for this yet so I used what’s known as a ‘deeplink’ to access this page: monzo://borrowing_hub - it’s not clickable from the forum but if you’re determined enough you’ll find a way to access it :wink: (give me a shout if you want to know more :grin:)


It’s great to see that the whole app is being tidied bit-by-bit :blush: this new screen feels tidy to me, I’m sure it’ll serve as a home to many things in the future as Monzo expand their “hub and spoke” banking model :hot_coral_heart:

The “Give Feedback” button takes you here:

And when you select one:

Really neat :blush:

I’m starting to wonder why Monzo don’t employ you to do technical press releases :thinking:

(I guess because you’re doing it for free, already :wink: )

If that was a job role, I’d certainly submit my resume :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I love tearing down the app and finding new bits all over the place :blush: I’ll happily continue writing this type of content free of charge - until that technical press release job becomes available :wink:

Do you tear down any other apps out of interest?

Not the moment, once freetrade releases for Android I’ll be tearing that down :sunglasses:

Any suggestions for particular apps you’d love to see more info on? :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s not an app I use :see_no_evil: I know that sounds selfish :joy: but without it being something I run on a daily basis I won’t be able to go into anywhere near as much detail :yum:

Monzo is something I’m (obviously :wink:) pretty passionate about, I love seeing the tweaks that get made and sharing them with everyone here :blush: dozens wouldn’t be quite the same (plus I’d need to do it on their forum, not monzo’s - I think I’d cause some issues doing it here haha :stuck_out_tongue:)

Looks like Monzo’s rolling this out now! :tada:

I just took a look at my Account page and saw something different at the bottom :eyes: I am now taken straight to the Overdraft & Loans page :slight_smile:

Are you seeing this new option?

Be interested to know if this is just Android?

I’ve had this for a couple of weeks now.

I’m on Android and I’m using the beta build or whatever its called.
Just checked there now and this is the first time I’ve noticed it.

I’ve had this for a while now, too.

I don’t think it’s that different to the old system to be honest.

I’ve always has the “Find out about overdrafts” button but today was the first time I’ve noticed the thing about loans too.
