Version 1.21.0

Some of our business customers told us that our spending categories weren't really cutting it – so we did the decent thing and created a brand new set. They're now far more helpful – think things like Income, Expenses and Tax Payments – and we're hoping they'll make staying organised that little bit easier. As you were!

Dec 05
2019
Version 1.12.0

Thanks to a recent remodel, your home screen has officially never looked better. Should you manage to see past its superficial delights, you’ll notice we’ve also built a MonthlyPulse™, which is a simple breakdown of everything you’ve spent that month. All together now: there's no place like home(screen).

If you’re afraid of commitment, look away now. We’ve put all your recurring payments together in one easy-to-manage place. Direct debits, standing orders, subscriptions – you name them, they’re there. Or not – if you don't think one belongs, just hide it.

Nov 25
2019
Version 1.9.0

Payments are now safer than ever, thanks to some recent improvements we made to fraud detection. Now give yourself some time to sigh that sigh of sweet, sweet relief. There it is!

Version 1.7.0

First order of business: if you’re not the only director in your business, you can now add someone else – or multiple someone else’s – to your Starling account to give them all the same access and controls as you. Just send them an invitation through your app to kick things off.
Oh, and we’ve given password resetting a reboot too, so if you forget yours, it’s now super simple to change it and get back into your account. And scene.

Nov 04
2019
Version 1.6.0

All quiet on the western front this week. Which broadly means: we've done a lot, but nothing that sounds very exciting on a release note. Check back in soon though – there's plenty in the works.

Nothing too exciting to report this time – other than some action-packed bug fixes AND mind-blowing optimisations. Under promise, over deliver; that’s how you do it, folks.

Oct 04
2019
Version 1.0.0

We’re releasing our new FAQs into the wild today, which happens to be little less bug-ridden – thanks to a few fixes we made ahead of the big reveal.

Sep 23
2019
Version 0.99.0

iOS 0.99.0, our palindromic release, is strictly sub rosa tinkering in preparation for a big announcement from us at Sibos. Mum's the word.

Sep 13
2019
Version 0.98.0

When stuff goes wrong in the Starling app, our first move is to chant Coldplay's Fix You at the offending line of code until it starts behaving itself. When that doesn’t work, we try the normal way, which is less fun but usually more effective: lots of adjusting, tinkering and dilemma-solving. Less Fix You, more Fix Your Problem.

Sep 04
2019
Version 0.97.0

Gripping dispatches from the app-crashing-when-resetting-my-password frontline.
Basically – it's all fixed. That's it. That's the dispatch. Bye for now.

Aug 29
2019
Version 0.96.0

Puff Daddy becoming P. Diddy – a rebranding exercise that seems almost trivial in light of what we’ve just done to the Customer Service section of the app. It’s now called Help _(WE KNOW)_ and we’ve introduced an unread badge to let you know when you’ve got a new customer service message.
The Help topics have also been given a thorough jazzing up, too.

Aug 14
2019
Version 0.95.0

As the old adage goes – just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Nothing huge to report this week, but as ever, we’ve been fixing, tinkering and ironing out virtual creases. All the good stuff that makes your app more pleasant, fast and friendly to use. Until next time!

Aug 05
2019
Version 0.94.2

Big news. Bigger than the new PM. Even bigger than recent temperatures. Brace yourself – because we've just launched business accounts for companies with more than one Person of Significant Control at the helm. Plus a couple of less newsworthy bug fixes.

Version 0.93.0

Can’t get enough of paying other people money? Ok yeah, probably not, but at least now it’s faster and easier than ever thanks to this week’s renovations.

Expect a freshly streamlined look and feel from your payment screens, as well as some key improvements to their structure and navigation. Keep an eye out for your most recent payees, which are now front and centre, as well as your balance on each of your accounts, which you’ll now be able to see at a glance. We’ve also given your payment flow a lick of paint so it feels sharp and seamless to use – because, well, why not eh.

2019
Version 0.92.1

Greetings all app-lings.
For all you SMEs moving to new pastures, new premises or new galaxies: you can now set or update a correspondence address for your company in the business details section of the app.

Card gone missing? Or accidentally found its way into the washing machine? We’ve made it easier than ever to order a replacement – just go to the card section of the app. And while we were at it, we fixed a few minor bugs, too.

Jun 26
2019
Version 0.90.0

Finding the answers to life’s big questions – like ‘Can I withdraw cash at the Post Office?’ – has never been easier, now that you can search in our FAQs. We’ve also made some design changes to our Customer Support and Starling inboxes – nothing wildly different, don’t worry. And, of course, no update would be complete without a couple of bug fixes and performance improvements.

Version 0.89.1

New friends? Lovely. New payees? Not that lovely. So we've given your Pay Someone New flow a little spit and polish to make it easier to speed through those first-timers (which means we've added things like smarter formatting for IBANs and sort codes, among other stuff). Lovely indeed.
Keep forgetting where to set up new scheduled payments? That's on us – it wasn't as clear as it could have been, but it's a lot easier to find now. As you were.

Bad news for imposters – great news for you. As you use your app this week, you might start to see the occasional tip on the subject of fraud (for example, when you’re adding a new payee or paying someone for the first time). We do everything we can to keep your money safe, but we’ve added this extra info to help you look after things at your end. Until next time!

May 14
2019
Version 0.85.0

A small but cartographically satisfying update this week. From now on, you’ll always be able to see a map alongside your transactions details, so you can see exactly where you spent what. That’s it for now!

May 07
2019
Version 0.84.0

This week we’ve made it a little easier for you to access your personal details settings. Just tap on the account menu in the top right of your home screen to find them.

Finally, if we can’t currently offer you an overdraft (it might be that you’re just not eligible, your account type doesn’t qualify or your account’s still being verified) from now on we’ll tell you about it – no more guessing games!

Apr 25
2019
Version 0.83.1

No such thing as too many cooks here! Our engineers have been busy in the kitchen (aka the office) whipping up some fresh code to keep your app looking spick and span. The usual bug fixes are the plat du jour of the update this week. Bon appétit!

Version 0.81.0

Our engineers are sort of like ghostbusters. Without proton packs. Or Bill Murray. Or ghosts.

Instead, they’re working with laptops, code…and a whole lotta bugs. This week they’ve busted a whole bunch of them, including one that was stopping you from manually updating your address in-app. Who you gonna call?

Version 0.80.1

Extra evidence required? No need to message Sherlock (aka our customer service team) for this case - if you need to upload additional documents for proof of address or a name change for your personal account, you can now do so in-app.

And of course we’ve banished some pesky bugs in this weekly update. Elementary, my dear Watson.

• We’ve also added a few extra questions to your FAQs.
• Finally, in the (mildly paraphrased) words of the inimitable TLC: no, we don’t want no bugs – so this week we’ve gone at them hammer and tongs

Version 0.75.0

This week...
You can now transfer between any of your Starling accounts with a tap (no more setting up a new payee!)
And, as ever, we’ve been the bane of the bug community and ironed out a few problems.

We’ve made it far speedier – and a lot more simple – to save payees and pay them.

Also this week we’ve fixed some crashes and a few bugs.

Jan 10

Version 0.73.0

This week we’re starting new Starlings off with a bang!

About to set up an account? Good news – we’ve given our initial screens a bit of a shake up to give you a better idea of all the good stuff that’s in store.

We’ve also mortally offended a few bugs, so they’ve slunk off back from whence they came. Good riddance.

Version 0.72.0

This week…

We can’t make your gas bill vanish here at Starling – sorry – but we can remind you when it’s coming up. From now on, whenever you’ve got a scheduled payment on the horizon – a gas bill, say, or your monthly WiFi payment – it’ll appear right at the top of your transaction list the day before it’s due.

Version 0.71.0

Just a few pre-holiday updates today.

Dec 05
2018
Version 0.70.0

Here's this week's...round up:

• In the likely event that that cryptic clue went straight over your head – we're excited to announce that Starling saving just got smarter with the addition of Round Ups! You can now round up whatever you spend to the nearest pound and we'll automatically add the extra to the Goal of your choosing. Ker-ching.
• Speaking of spending: you can now also export your statements between particular dates that you choose, rather than just individual set months.

That's all for now. Happy saving!

Version 0.69.0

This week…

We’ve redesigned our account switcher. Applying for a different kind of account now feels easier and more accessible (and switching between existing accounts is a lot smoother, too).

Personal spending: now more personal. Changed the spending category for a specific transaction? You can now apply it to all the past and future transactions for that merchant.

Rounding things off in a pleasingly meta fashion: we’ve released a new feature that’s all about, well…features. From now on, whenever we launch something new, we’ll tell you all about it in-app.

Until next week!

• We’ve made some changes to the app’s layout when it’s on iPad – it’s now presented in full screen.
• Our Business Marketplace is now live and kicking! Integration with Xero is available for a limited number of customers, but it’ll be open to everyone over the coming weeks.
• Like visualising your Goals with images? Want to do the same in Loans? Good news – you can now add an image of your choosing to each of your existing loans.
• Finally – we’re excited to announce that we’ve launched deposits and withdrawals at the Post Office! You’ll notice some updated FAQ’s in your app to support that.

Version 0.67.0

• Using the Current Account Switch Service to switch a sole trader account over to Starling? Good news – we’ve now made the whole process far more similar to the one that limited companies and Joint accounts get (in short: it now looks and works a lot better!)
• We’ve also made sure that you can now switch a business bank account into your sole trader account, instead of just a personal account.
• As ever, we’ve been the bane of the bug community and have been zapping with abandon. Sorry bugs.

• If you’ve reinstalled your app or want to log in to your account on a new device, we’ve now added some extra info and guidance to those first screens, just in case you need a hand. Oh and we’ve made it look a bit prettier too – because we’re good like that.

The head(less)lines this week:

- Started with Starling for Business but got your eye on our Personal account? As of this release, it’s yours to apply for!

- We’ve also added the ability to remove paid-off loans from your loans space and fixed a minor visual glitch in Goals.
- In more ghoulish news – your app may soon acquire a Halloween horror or two in honour of spooky season. Be afraid.

We’re also making the Starling experience - including Apple Pay, Insights, Goals, Settle Up and Nearby Payments - available to customers aged 16 and 17 (although they won’t be eligible for an overdraft or loan).

Aug 23
2018
Version 0.59.0

What to look out for this week:

- It’s been death by a thousand lines of code for bugs this week. Seen the odd issue in Loans? They should all be fixed.
- Plus we’ve vanquished a fair few Marketplace bugs too, so if you’ve had trouble linking Marketplace partners to your account recently, that should all be fine now too.
- Finally, good news for our non-binary friends! As of this release, gender neutral titles are a go.

2018
Version 0.58.0

- If you’ve got more than one Starling account (Business, Joint, Personal) you can now choose which account you want to pay from when using Settle Up, or choose which account you want to connect to a Marketplace partner’s app.

- Finally, some services require you to send them a 1p payment to them to validate your account. You can now make a bank transfer of as little as £0.01 from your Starling app.
