By now, most Nigerians must be used to the trend of mobile banking apps having the same names as their respective banks. Yet, a few banks have stood out by not following this trend and releasing apps with distinct names. One thing these banks have in common is that they have introduced a new way to bank with their apps: the ability to carry out banking activities on an app without having to step into any bank.
This is what apps such as ALAT by WEMA bank offer with its multi-banking services and now Octopus released earlier in 2018 by Heritage Bank Plc has also come with its unique features to make banking seamless for the average Nigerian.
