CIBC mobile app for Windows 10

Dear Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce,

What were your app designers smoking that led them produce your “app” for Windows 10? Equally important is the question “wtf?”  I put app in quotation marks because it’s painfully obvious you have not created an app. It’s a glorified bookmark to your webpage. As one person stated in the review section “We know how to open a browser and bookmark a website”.

You see, that’s all your “app” is. It offers nothing. Absolutely NOTHING. No functionality, none of the nifty features in your iPhone or Android apps. No way to take a photo of a cheque and instantly deposit it .... nada damn thing.   What we do get is redirected to your mobile website.  Don't get me wrong, you mobile website is very good, but it isn't an app.  Where is the instant deposit feature you push so hard? That is a terrific feature but Windows users aren't allowed to use it.  And don't get me started on your mobile payment app. Unless you have a Blackberry or Android, forget it.  And come to think about it, you offer it on Blackberry and not iPhones? Seriously CIBC? Now that's funny.

What kills me is the tag line "Innovation at your fingertips: CIBC Mobile Banking®" on your website. There is nothing innovative about redirecting people to your webpage. The introduction of Win10 was not a mystery. You knew it was coming. It's been out for nearly a year now and yet you can't produce a real app. 

Yea, you deserve 0 out of 5 for this offering.
