Chase coming to Microsoft Wallet next year?

Chase coming to Microsoft Wallet next year?
In March 2015, Chase (the huge money center bank) withdrew its app from the Windows Phone Store. The bank said that it wanted to devote its time to platforms that its customers use. That is a shot below the belt! The company said that it had signed up very few users for the app. Chase did suggest that Windows Phone users employ their mobile browser and go to Chase.com instead.

That was more than 18 months ago. Now, a tweet sent by Chase support suggests that the bank is coming back to the platform next year to help gain new subscribers for Microsoft Wallet. As you can probably figure out, this is the platform's digital wallet used with its tap to pay mobile payment service. Right now, it is available for the Microsoft Lumia 650, Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL.

If you own one of those Windows 10 Mobile powered handsets, you can download the Microsoft Wallet by clicking on the sourcelink. Right now, there are seven banks that support it including PNC Bank and US Bank. And yes, it seems that you will be able to add Chase to that list next year.

It's only really true in some cases. Developers who get ignored in the massive flood of apps on android are more likely to get noticed on wp where there aren't that many apps. Some devs like Game troopers/Gameloft make good money on windows, especially on desktop. Windows 10 is still new though. The whole concept of Apps on a desktop is pretty new too. Windows 10 is not finished and a lot of developers know this including chase bank. Satya said it's a two year project. There are still API implementations a lot of devs are waiting for. GATT for fitbit is just going to be making it into the insider previews. Fitbit relies on it heavily. Again redstone 2 will likely help apps pick up a bit and this coincides with a lot of developer plans to introduce apps. The APIs should be more mature and allow more flexibility. APis are definitely show stoppers for some. UWP will gain momentum just needs time.

From the article itself: "As you can probably figure out, this is the platform's digital wallet used with its tap to pay mobile payment service."
