I will like to register my frustration with using your mobile app to access the two accounts I have with your bank. Your App requires a device for each account....it says "device is already registered to one account" when I try to access my second account. The benchmark based on other financial institutions is for you to answer your security question and check that your device be recognized and you can access all accounts you have from the same app.....which means you don't need several devices just to access your accounts. I believe you can check what other banks have done and be able to allow your customers the ease of accessing their accounts from your app without having to go online to www.arvest.com to do so. Benchmark your products with industry standards for faster and better service to your customers.

Oludare – We’re sorry to hear you’re frustrated with accessing multiple accounts in Mobile Banking. Most accounts can be tied to a single Online Banking user ID which then allows you to access all accounts from one device using the iPhone® or Android™ app. If your account structure requires separate user IDs, then you can also access account information through any mobile browser via Arvest Mobile Web. Either way, we’d like the opportunity to help you. Please call us at (866) 952-9523 or email us at interact@arvest.com with your phone number and a good time to call.

I think you guys (app techs) are missing the point of the problem with the app. Your new update does NOT work with a LOT of phones right now. The ONLY one it IS working for at this time is the iOS 5/iOS 6. I have a Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket. I have NEVER had a problem with this app since the first day I originally installed it... until TODAY when it updated. I wasn't given an OPTION of whether or not to update as I should've. It FORCED the update. Upon attempting to run the app after the update, all I got was a BLACK screen with green and purple lines and dots. I closed the app, attempted to restart, and got the same results. I then uninstalled and tried reinstalling. It wouldn't even reinstall. I just got a message saying "Error invalid packet." I have already called this in to your office, but I am posting this as a type-written record in MY words as to what is wrong with this app, instead of letting you go by something sent to your department by a young lady who didn't seem to even know the difference between the OPERATING SYSTEM and the DEVICE MODEL. And a suggestion, as it seems I'm only the SECOND person to post about this on your site, you might want to check the app's reviews on GOOGLE PLAY STORE... There are a LOT more complaints on there.

Jennifer - We sincerely apologize for the error in updating to the new app. We are having some issues with the app on Android devices running 2.3x OS. We are working to resolve it as soon as possible. In the interim, you can log in using the mobile browser at www.arvest.com.

Your app will not update on my Samsung. What a pain. Why would you release an update without knowing if it will work or not.

Michael - We're sorry to hear about your difficulties updating the app. We invite you to contact customer service at (866) 952-9523 to help troubleshoot the issue. We look forward to assisting you.
