Draw money out of cashpoint with mobile phone
Cash machines eh? What a pain in the arse. Someone should come up with an alternative to the completely reasonable and works-just-fine system of cash-cards shouldn't they?
What's that? You can now use your mobile phone to draw money out of a cash point? Well, that's just brilliant news!
That's right. The new Getcash app has been developed so you can draw £100 at a time out of an ATM with little more than a tap of a smartphone. RBS has created the app which will allow customers to draw money from any of the RBS, Natwest and Tesco points.
This new app works by getting you to choose the amount you want on your phone's screen. Then you'll tap a six digit code in on the phone's display, which you'll then punch into an ATM to withdraw your money. More usefully, you'll be able to text the code to someone else so they can withdraw money. RBS have said that the GetCash app is going to help revellers who want to avoid taking bags and wallets out with them when they go on a night out... although, you'll still need a bag or a wallet to put the money in that you've drawn out.
Ben Green, head of mobile at NatWest and RBS said: ‘This has never been done anywhere in the UK, and yet is a really simple and secure way to help our customers get cash whenever and wherever they need it.’
