Chase Bank Plans to Discontinue Legacy BlackBerry App on April 21st

A little more than a year after finally launching a BlackBerry app for BlackBerry 7 devices Chase has decided to discontinue it. They sent out an email to their users that they plan on removing support for it on April 21st. I am not sure what sparked the decision but I have already had the Android Chase banking app sideloaded on my BlackBerry Z10 for over an month now and it works like a charm. Either way Chase is recommending users just use the mobile website at www.chase.com that offers the same features minus the check depositing. Here is the email they sent out:

  1. They should just submit the ported app already, it works fine.

    I seriously doubt they will though…

  2. Does he sideloaded Android app work with QuickDeposit? I am looking forward to upgrading to the Z10, yet would also love to be able to continue using Chase’s banking app.

  3. I don’t use Chase but, for me, I prefer the websites over apps for this type of thing. Most are optimized for devices and save valuable space for other apps/games.

  4. I just spoke to CHASE who is blaming this on BB – NO DEPOSITS EXCEPT at the bank… I have never heard of anything so crazy…

    Does any other bank work??

    I just may have to move my account….
