St George

Price: Free

St George now allows iPhone and Android users to open transaction and savings accounts from their smartphones, even if they aren't already customers with the bank. You can't transact with the money, however, until you do an identity check at a branch. Other than that, the app allows users to do the usual transfers and checking of balances needed for any good bank app.
