Wirex App V1.3 : 3 cool new features!

June 20, 2016 8:36 am Published by

We know you love new things, so say hello to three new features we’ve added to the Wirex app for Android and iOS. Our sleek mobile banking app just got updated, and we think you’ll really like the changes. If you’re not familiar with the app, it is one of our best offerings, and it’s FREE. Wirex app is a mobile banking application that you can use to open your E-Coin account (soon-to-be Wirex account, automatically) with just internet access. We’ve rolled out version 1.3 and it is available for download and update.

What are the new updates? Let’s see them!

New onboarding screens

After you update the Wirex app to version 1.3 (or upon new installation), you will be treated to our new onboarding screens. These will help you quickly glance through some of our best features: banking on the go, smart notifications, instant transfers, and state-of-the-art security. These services are available for all Android and iOS smartphone users around the world.

Using the Wirex card is very convenient with the Wirex app. Here are several use cases:

  • We will notify you in real time of all purchases made on the card. No surprises.
  • Do you urgently need to convert bitcoins into cash to pay bills?  No problem, simply load your card with bitcoins from the app and use the money right away.
  • Did you just remember you need to send money to your friend in another county? Send it from the app while you go about your day. There is no need for a special trip to the bank or remittance office.

Intuitive transaction scroll

We thought of many ways, big and small, to enhance your user experience on the Wirex app. One of them is to make your past transactions easy to browse. An easy browsing experience helps you look for information faster, therefore making Wirex more convenient to use. In the old version, the card balance screen took more than a third of the page. Now, the card balance will be collapsed while you scroll down, giving you a better view of all your transactions.

We think this update looks really cool and makes the app feel super sleek. What do you think?

Seamless help center integration

To help you access information better while on the go, we have integrated the Help Center into the app itself. Right after you register or log in, you can browse our comprehensive resource page to find out:

  • how to order a card,
  • how to perform the verification process,
  • how to make an international money transfer,
  • and other information without needing to open a separate browser!

Can’t find the answers you’re looking for? No worries — you can contact our friendly Support Team. To send a support ticket, go to Settings and swipe right. You can open an active ticket by typing in your inquiry. To keep it transparent, all your support requests will be displayed on one page. Tell our team your issues in detail and they will help you as soon as possible.

Those are our two new upgrades. Do you like them? Which were your favourites? Do you have suggestions on what should be included in the next upgrade? We love feedback and making customers happy, so we would love to hear what you think.
