    The St George iPhone app has had some new features added, including the ability to apply for a credit card using the app, and a PropertyMate tool, which guides customers through the steps required to carry out a property inspection.

    The app is also available on Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and iPad, but without the new features.
