Equity’s Eazzy Banking App Updated with Android 8 Oreo Support

Eazzy AppIn a bid to perform as many transactions as possible, banks have been spinning off additional products from their primary offering because transactions translate to more revenue. This trend continues to be emphasized by the release of banking apps that are filled to the brim with important functions, including bill payments, top up services, person to person transfers, to mention a few.

Apps such as Eazzy Banking are at the forefront in defining what a good financial tool should look like. Admittedly, I have never been a fan of some of its design shortcomings.
