The app released for download on the Android Market redirects customers to a mobile-optimised version of the NetBank website. It has been modified from the original iPhone version specifically for Android users with customised screen sizes and resolution for the Android platform.
The bank's general manager of direct channels Quentin Boyes said CBA was compelled to develop the app due to the rising popularity of Android devices in Australia in the last few months.
"Approximately 20 per cent of total daily NetBank log-ons are initiated through mobile devices with iPhone holding pole position to date," he said in a statement. "However, we have seen the popularity of Android phones double in the past three months, hence this launch."
