Australia's major banks all agree that mobile phones and tablets will account for an ever-increasing share of customer activity. Given that, why do they continue to make such a dog's breakfast of actually developing decent apps?

NAB has upgraded its mobile phone banking apps for iOS and Android. The main change is the ability to set a four-digit passcode to access the app on the phone, making logging in speedier.
