D3 Banking’s mobile app is built using a hybrid framework that allows access to the native features and functions of the device. It uses templates that are rendered based on device, maintaining a consistent user experience, regardless of the type of device. For an added experience benefit, users can access a quick view of account balances without requiring additional authentication past the phone’s initial sign on.
