We’re happy to announce that from today, the iPhone owners among our users can start using our new and fully-functioning mobile app*!
A collaborative project with Czech start up Dingo, we’re confident that this is going to mark the start of a much-improved B£ user experience. We will be using the app as our go-to platform for innovation in the future, but starting today users can benefit from new functionality such as:
A much faster, automated payment process
We’ve placed a number of bluetooth devices in some B£ locations. When you go into one of these locations, go into the app and provided that your bluetooth is switched on, it will already know that you are in that store. All you then have to do it click pay, type in the amount and click send! If the store doesn’t have a bluetooth device then you can just select it from a drop-down menu. And if all else fails, or you’re just feeling a bit old-school, then there’s always good ol’ pay-by-text at hand.
Discover more Brixton
Ever wondered where else you can spend the B£? You can browse the in-app location map on the spot to see where accepts the B£.
Leave your wallet at home
We know that many people would use the B£ more if only they had credit readily available on their phone. Those days are now over. Using Stripe, you can link your bank card to your B£ account and easily top up as and when you need.
Like the sound of it? Well it’s all yours. Get started over at Brixtonapp.org to download it or go straight to the app store and then let us know how you get on with this next step in the B£ story. Tweet us @brixtonpound using the hashtag #brixtonapp, or just send us an email to let us know your thoughts and ideas on how we can make it even better.
*We know that many B£ users are on Android – me included – so the development of this version is very much a priority! Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long. – Tom
